Celebrities have problems too
Celebrities! They’re just like us! It turns out that being a new mom is just as difficult for Khloe Kardashian as it is for many other first-time mothers. She’s been tired, busy and, according to her, having trouble with the same thing that a lot of other mamas face: breastfeeding. In a revealing new post on her blog, , the Keeping Up with the Kardashian opens up about her struggles with nursing her newborn daughter.

New Mom, New Life
There are a lot of new things that come with being a new mom. It’s a completely different world than before, one often fraught with long, sleepless nights, a lot of crying (from both the newborn and mothers), and for many mothers, breastfeeding.
A lot of new mothers can have difficulties with this process, and it turns out that Khloe Kardashian is no exception to that rule.
She said that Baby Brezza Formula Pro One-Step Bottle Maker was a baby product that she absolutely loves and adores.
“Technically, I don’t need something like this because I breastfeed, but because I don’t produce enough milk, I also have to give a bottle with every feeding,” she opened up about her struggles.
“And, with the formula I use, I have to give True the bottle within 30 minutes of making it, so it’s amazing to have this machine make it for me. It’s super easy to use—and fast, so when I’m exhausted and can’t even keep my eyes open in the middle of the night, it’s a total lifesaver.”
Kris Jenner had opened up about Khloe’s difficulties with breastfeeding when she went on the Ellen DeGeneres Show back in May.
“She’s trying to get the nursing thing down, which right now, is a little tricky,” Kris revealed to Ellen DeGeneres, going on to say that Khloé is “the best mom already.”
Back on Her Grind
In the past months, Khloé also admitted to having other difficulties, such as trying to fit in workouts between feedings.
She used her Snapchat to document her journey, and shared with her followers in early May that “no two days are the same.”
“True is so great, but still, I can’t predict if she’s gonna sleep for the full two hours or if she’s hungry,” she explained.
Khloe’s first public debut after giving birth was back in May, as she pushed her then 3-week-old daughter around a park in Cleveland, Ohio. After the pictures were released, Khloé herself commented on the paparazzi photos of her day out with True, writing on her app and website that she was ready to get her pre-baby body back.
“When I saw myself in those first post-pregnancy paparazzi photos, I couldn’t believe how big my booty looked! I can’t wait to tone up again and get my body back to where it was,” the 33-year-old shared.
“I’m super excited because my doctor finally cleared me this week to work out and I’m going to meet with Coach Joe!” she continued. “I’ve literally been counting down the days.”
Since then, she’s been hard at work to get back into shape. The star recently revealed that she was back on a low-carb diet with a lot of protein, allowing her to “go all-out at the gym.”
And the star is already down quite a bit. Just recently, she posted a photo of video of herself on her Instagram Story, flaunting her curves in her pre-baby Good American skinny jeans.
A Revenge Body For Sure
The Revenge Body host has been a fitness advocate for several years now, saying that it has not only helped her physically but also mentally.
“When I started working out, it wasn’t about weight loss,” Khloé told Redbook back in 2015. “I was going through a really hard time and needed an emotional release.”
“Once you start getting in the tabloids claiming you have fake body parts, then it’s like, ‘Okay, I made it. Now I’m really working out,’” she joked. “Kourtney said yesterday, ‘I got so happy because someone said I had butt implants.’ And I was like, ‘Doesn’t it make you feel good?’ She’s like, ‘I really feel good. I’ve got to keep it up!'”
The celebrity also stressed the importance of eating well while working out, an important part of fitness.
At 5’10”, Khloe is much taller than her older sisters Kim and Kourtney, and was regularly compared to them growing up. As a teenager, she said that this was often an issue for her, as she used to draw her own unhealthy comparisons.
“They’d always be like, ‘Oh, I weigh 102 lbs.,’ and whatever, and that’s good for them, but I would look at the scale and be like ‘Oh god’ because I weigh 140 or something. As a teenager, you’re not understanding and knowing that difference,” Khloe explained to People. “There’s so many different elements to why I weigh more. And I do think that really hinders children and those numbers are not good to focus on.”
