It took becoming a mother twice before Kim Kardashian would admit that her views on public breastfeeding have changed. You may remember the controversy Kim stirred up back in 2010 (pre-babies) when she took to her Twitter to complain abot having to see a mother breastfeed at a restaurant.
Back in 2010 Kim tweeted, “Eww, I’m at lunch, the woman at the table next 2 me is breastfeeding her baby with no cover-up then puts baby on the table and changes her diaper.” People were mostly shocked because the reality star, best known for a leaked sex tape and exposing her shapely figure, seemed to be expressing offense at something as natural as breastfeeding.
E! News reports abot Kim’s recent change of heart on the subject of public breastfeeding. She explained that she wouldn’t necessarily choose to breastfeed in a restaurant but is totally on board if another mom chooses this. She says, “Now that I'm a mom, I say whatever makes you comfortable goes.” She goes on to explain how her views have changed since becoming a mom herself. She says, “I still personally wouldn't breastfeed at a restaurant with a bunch of people I didn't know staring at me. 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.”
No word on whether her views on public diaper changes have evolved, perhaps she’s still grossed out by this. But she did admit that with a little time and experience she has learned not to be so judgemental. She explains, “I know people have their opinions on how others should live their lives and I try not to be judgmental anymore—this is simply just my opinion.”
