Kim Kardashian shares her views on the public breastfeeding debate

by Chloe Best

Kim Kardashian wasn't always sure of her thoughts about breastfeeding in public, but the mother of two has now waded in to the debate. Spending much of her time at home with her new baby boy Saint West, the 35-year-old celebrity has plenty of time to think about the matter, and she made her views on the issue public in a Tuesday (Jan. 26) post on her app.

"I know some people find breastfeeding such a private, personal experience, while other people are very open and even breastfeed in public," Kim wrote. "Now that I'm a mom, I say whatever makes you comfortable goes."


Kim Kardashian said she wouldn't personally breastfeed in public.

She has admitted that she doesn't personally feel comfortable feeding her son Saint in public.

"I still personally wouldn't breastfeed at a restaurant with a bunch of people I didn't know staring at me," Kim continued. "I've seen this before and remember tweeting how shocked I was. Now that I'm a mom, I'm not that shocked, especially if you have a few kids and can't leave to breastfeed one kid in the bathroom while leaving the others at the table.

"But I still personally wouldn't do it, unless it was an emergency situation and I was fully covered."

She said, "He's my best friend."

Kim continued to say that she is fine with feeding her baby boy in front of her close friends and family, and wouldn't judge anyone who decided to share a picture of themselves breastfeeding on social media.

"I know people have their opinions on how others should live their lives and I try not to be judgmental anymore – this is simply my opinion."

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has been open about her experiences of motherhood, and recently admitted she was "delirious" in a tweet lamenting the fact that she was up at 4am to feed her baby boy.

"This 4am feeding really kills me. I'm like delirious," she tweeted.

When her friend Chrissy Teigen, who is expecting her first child, a baby girl, with husband John Legend, replied with a crying emoji face, Kim tweeted back, "Ohhhhh just you wait and see… Lol."
