Khloé Kardashian Reveals Why She Stopped Breastfeeding: "It Just Wasn't Working for Me"
Khloé Kardashian is getting candid about her experience as a new mom. The 34-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star was responding to some fan inquiries on Twitter last week when she opened up about the issues she encountered while trying to breastfeed her 7-month-old daughter, True Thompson. When one user asked Khloé if she ever experienced pain while breastfeeding, the new mom revealed that, though she tried "for weeks and weeks" to breastfeed her daughter, pain wasn't the only reason why she was forced to switch to formula.
"For me it was so painful but I also was not producing a lot of milk," Khloé wrote. "So I had to pump every time she was napping. I guess due to my stress my milk was not coming in." She later explained in response to another fan that her decision to stop breastfeeding came after she had tried "literally everything" to get herself to produce more milk.
"Doctors came to check, I met with the lactation specialist, I did power pumping, I drink the tea, ate the cookies, did special massages etc. it just wasn't working for me," she said. "Once True started losing weight bc of it I had to give her formula."
Khloé and her boyfriend, Tristan Thompson, welcomed True back in April. In July, Khloé revealed that she stopped breastfeeding via Twitter, citing that "it wasn't working for my body."
"It was so frustrating because for Kourt it was sooooooo easy for her to breast feed," she wrote in a separate tweet. "My experience was very different."
