The 33-year-old reality TV star recently revealed on her website that she struggles to produce enough milk to feed her 2-month-old daughter, True.

In a blog post, Kardashian stayed true to her money-making roots and promoted a baby formula mixing machine, saying she supplements feedings for her daughter with formula.

“Because I don’t produce enough milk, I also have to give a bottle with every feeding,” the star wrote. ‘With the formula I use, I have to give True the bottle within 30 minutes of making it, so it’s amazing to have this machine make it for me.”

Kardashian welcomed daughter, True Thompson on April 12th.

Despite the shameless plug, fans have applauded Kardashian for admitting that she uses formula. Many have shared publicly on social media that they often feel a stigma from other mothers who tout the saying, “breast is best.”

“Fed is BEST!” one follower wrote. “You got this girly. Breastfeeding isn’t easy and sometimes no matter what you do your body just doesn’t produce enough.”

Another received a response from Khloé after she tweeted, “Mad respect to @khloekardashian for opening up about supplementing with formula. I had to do that when I went back to work, and I was so embarrassed that I couldn’t produce enough because I was away from Jackson. Fed is best!

Kardashian replied, “Mommy shaming is real! But the truth is I’ve tried and tried and tried to breast feed only and it wasn’t working for me. I feel fortunate that I am able to still breast-feed but with the help of formula. Breast-feeding is something I really wanted to do. Just am not fully able [sic].”

Kardashian has been making headlines for her controversial choice to stay with boyfriend, professional basketball player, Tristan Thompson after it was revealed he cheated on her several times during her pregnancy.

Kardashian is still living in Cleveland with Thompson, but a source recently revealed that her famous family members are trying their best to persuade Khloé to return to California.
