For Khloe Kardashian, the wishes of True Thompson will all the time come first. 

That’s why all the way through her best daughter’s infancy, Khloe made up our minds to forestall breastfeeding and turn to system feeding—in spite of the power disgrace she felt surrounding her resolution. In a brand new video posted on Kourtney Kardashian‘s way of life website online Poosh, the sisters candidly speak about their hugely other approaches to motherhood and why Khloe says she “did not feel safe” whilst breastfeeding. 

“I think being a mom in and of itself is such a hard, but rewarding, beautiful job and everyone’s just trying to figure out what’s best for them and what works for their life. I think it’s ridiculous when people pass judgement when they don’t even know their entire situation,” Khloe says. 

“For me, I remember I used to get almost frustrated with you—not that you even did anything—but you would just talk about this experience you had, and how beautiful [it was],” the E! fact superstar tells Kourtney. “You would say things not at all trying to criticize me, but I would take it like, it’s not that easy.”

Revealing that her breasts even bled now and then, Khloe says, “You were always trying to help me and give me tips, and I was like, ‘It’s just not working!’ I wanted to, like, strangle you. Your experience seemed so easy and it wasn’t for me.”

Khloe says she was once “under a lot of stress” after giving beginning to True, referencing the dishonest allegations in opposition to True’s father, Tristan Thompson. “There was a lot going on in my life at the time. That, I think, played a part in why I wasn’t producing [milk] as easily.”

She then became to little sister Kylie Jenner for steering, who Khloe says by no means deliberate to breastfeed her personal daughter, Stormi Webster. But even after True effectively transitioned to system feeding, Khloe says she felt like she had “failed” as a mother.

As Khloe remembers, “It sucked. I hated every minute of it. It was torture. I always felt like I was never giving True enough food. I felt like she was always hungry.”

“Once I stopped, though,” she provides, “the amount of pressure that was lifted off my shoulders and I could enjoy my daughter. I’m all for breastfeeding, I tried, but if you can’t do it you don’t have to feel like a failure.”

Likewise, Kourtney, who says she “never” gave her 3 youngsters system, is aware of the pressures of motherhood firsthand. The 40-year-old recalls the lengths different mothers would move to pass judgement on her, pronouncing, “Like if I was wearing flat shoes, they would be like, ‘Now that you’re a mom you can’t wear heels?’ And then if I’d be wearing heels, they’d be like, ‘You’re gonna carry your kid wearing heels?’ Literally down to the smallest details they would criticize.”

From Kourtney’s viewpoint, she hopes to look mothers paintings towards turning into a “better community of women who are lifting each other up and knowing that we’re all going through our own struggle.”
