Kim Kardashian Wants to Breastfeed Her Sister's Kids (VIDEO)

OMG 34

Kim KardashianRemember the Kim Kardashian who was icked out by a woman breastfeeding near her in public? The mother-to-be hasn't even popped this kid out yet, and already Kim is changing her tune. Say hello to the Kim Kardashian who is thinking of breastfeeding her sister's kids!

And seeing as they're all share and share alike in the Dash clan, Kim has even considered the notion of letting sister Kourtney breastfeed baby Kimye when he or she shows up. Think it's crazy? Well, when you put it their way ...

According to Kim, co-breastfeeding was all Kourtney's idea:

She said, "Like one sister should babysit all the kids so I can go and then whichever sister's babysitting should just breastfeed all the kids."

Kim says it's something they did in the olden days. While Kourtney says she didn't exactly suggest it ... she just doesn't think it's freaky.

I agree. It doesn't sound freaky. If you are talking about a close relative feeding your child, there's a pretty safe bet you know what kind of food they eat, what kind of diseases they have. If there is anyone who I would want breastfeeding my baby, a sister would have to be right at the top of the list.

And if we're talking about breastfeeding someone else's child, I'd put a relative's at the top of the list again. You already love the child, and you want what's best for them.

But the Kardashian plan DOES sound exhausting.

Even if the body magically made extra milk on demand -- enough to sustain a baby you didn't give birth to plus your own -- just consider the logistics here. You've got your own baby who is on his or her own feeding schedule. Then you have another baby with their schedule. Oh, and if we're talking about the Kardashians, in addition to little Penelope and Kim and Kanye's baby, you also have toddler Mason running around while you're trying to juggle these two babies and their needs!

It's not for me (sharing the breastfeeding responsibility with) . I'm too possessive over my baby for that I think...and the thought kinda creeps out my OCD,picturing my baby's lips/mouth on another womans breast...even if it were a relative I just don't think I could do it.BUT if it works and is right for YOU then that's great;more power to you!Again,I'm not saying it's wrong. I'm just saying it's not for me...

I feel the same way MamabearC. After reading "Even if the body magically produces more milk" leads me to believe the writer knows nothing about a breastfeeding womans body. Usually (excluding women who can't produce enough milk) the more the baby sucks the more milk you make. Your body adjusts to how much your baby eats. My aunt passed away when my cousin was a baby and my mom just so happened to be breastfeeding my brother at the time. Since she babysitting her and she had some health problems (my cousin), my mom nursed her too. And she wasn't taking any milk away from my brother at the time. It's amazing what our bodies can do.

I'm with mamabear on this one....I have two younger sisters, one of whom is very close to my daughter. But the thought of her even doing that weirds me out. To each his own but for me? NO WAY.

I would use pumped milk from someone else and I'd breast feed for someone if needed but I couldn't let my baby!

Thanks for twisting the words around again Cafemom! If you read other articles it actually says that they were joking around.

It's actually a great idea and useful. My best friend and I had babies 3 weeks apart. We made a pact if need be we'd nurse the other's baby. Saved us each a lot of stress

The body DOES "magically" make more milk if more milk is demanded. Apparently this author knows nothing about how breastfeeding actually works.

Me & my sister in law (my brothers wife) are very close. We had babies 5 days apart. I was a milk machine & she could barely eek out enough to support her baby. I was pumping in addition to BFeeding my baby. I gave her TONS of milk as I had so much extra, I was freezing it & taking it to her. I also breast fed her baby while she worked & I babysat him (I'm a SAHM & she wasn't at that time) I offered & she was ecstatic. We both agreed if I felt odd doing it or it ever wasn't right for me I'd tell her. It only felt weird the first time or two. I love her son like he's my own. I loved helping her & him & contribute to his health as a very preemie newborn with lots of complications. It has only strengthened my bond with him & my SIL that I adore. We're very close & maybe that's why it felt so natural. Just sharing my experience. It was not a bad one. I would have let my son Bfeed with her in a heart beat if the situation had been reversed, no qualms about it.
