The mom of True Thompson, whom she co-parents with ex Tristan Thompson, sat down with sister Kourtney Kardashian for a video on the lifestyle site Poosh.
During their chat, the sisters got real about how different they are when it comes to parenting. In an especially vulnerable moment, Khloe shares that she “did not feel safe” while 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 judgment when they don’t even know their entire situation,” Khloé shared.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star even opened up about how her sister’s comments sometimes made her feel inferior.
“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]. You would say things not at all trying to criticize me, but I would take it like, it’s not that easy.”
The older sister tried to help out Khloé, but it seemed to only complicate things.
“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.”
As Khloé recalls, “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 adds, “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.”
