Kim Kardashian Will Have a Baby Nurse for a Whole Year -- Is She Going Too Far?

kim kardashianDetails about Kim Kardashian's baby and how the reality star and her baby daddy Kanye West plan on handling their foray into parenthood are beginning to surface, and let me tell you: No expense or details are being spared. It's currently being reported that in addition to moving in with grandma Kris, the couple will have a baby nurse -- for the entire first year. And wait until you hear what they want the nurse to do.

Kim and Kanye reportedly had a special black and white uniform made for the nurse, which they'd like her to wear while she's on the job. And the woman they've employed is the same baby nurse Kourtney used after giving birth to Penelope, so guess she's pretty good.

If I had as much money as Kim and Kanye, I, too, would probably employee a baby nurse for a few weeks, or maybe even a few months, after I gave birth. But having a nurse for a year? Is that even necessary? I get that they're both incredibly busy people, but having a baby nurse for a 10-month-old seems like overkill. And doesn't Kim want to get up with her child and do some of the more "grueling" mama stuff to get accustomed to things? Sure, they need a nanny for the little one, but I'm really not getting the whole baby nurse for a year thing -- especially when they've moved in with Kim's mom.

It's going to be interesting seeing Kim and Kanye as parents. As anyone who's ever had a baby knows -- their worlds will never be the same. But I've gotta say: With nannies, grandma, and a baby nurse for a full year, it probably won't be as hard as it is for most.

Did you have help after giving birth?

She can do whatever the hell she wants, it is her baby and she can definitely afford it.

It's hard to advocate for women's rights when women are so hateful towards one another.  Perhaps if we stopped judging each other and started supporting one another, men would take note and follow suit.  Really, how anyone could judge this woman for having extra help is beyond me, when we are constantly bombarded with stories of neglect and abuse.  We should be celebrating when a child is loved and cared for by many, not condemning.

Honestly if I could have afforded it I would have had help, most of us would.

I equate baby nurse with nanny anyway. So what's the difference.

Nicole, do you actually HAVE children? Because as far as I can tell, hiring a "baby nurse" (aka nanny) isn't much different that the working moms who send their new babies to daycare when they go back to work. Most people with money never actually raise their own children anyways...how is this shocking?

If you are familiar with the show at all you would know she is only moving in with mama Kris until her house is done. Most celebrities hire a baby nurse and nannies. Honestly if I could afford it I would have gotten a night nurse. Who are we to judge what help she needs. Besides if her having help will help her be a better parent then go for it.

Looking back, I was lucky enough to have been laid off when I came back to work from maternity leave. I was unemployed for the first year after my daughter was born. (I'm very grateful I was able to be there and watch her grow as a first time new mom) I was able to take naps when she slept and didn't have to juggle work and home life. Now as my husband and I are planning to conceive our second child, the fear of having an infant and still getting up at 6:30 am to work 8 hours, regardless of how little sleep I got the night before is overwhelming. If we could afford a baby nurse you better believe we would go that route to maintain our sanity during those rough first months. If you can afford it, why not? With Kim though I hope she doesn't solely rely on the nurse to do all of the grunt work and only enjoy the "perfect" moments.

Just my hubby. Family to take care of kids while I was birthing baby 2, 3, and 4. When we came home from the hospital, no, it was just us. I wouldn't want a baby nurse, that's my bond with my child I don't want to give up. I want a chef or a house keeper. That's the crap I could care less about. I want memories with my kids.

The nurse or nanny will do all of the changing of diapers. Kim will only be seen with the baby for photo


ops. She will never bond with her child if she doesn't change being so selfish.  Wait till her daughter


upstages her, she will not like that.

The stupid uniform is definitely pushing it too far.
