Kim Kardashian to moms: Cover up while breast-feeding

Kim Kardashian may have a lot of love for her sister Kourtney’s 5-month-old son, Mason, but other people’s kids? Not so much.

The E! reality star was appalled recently when a woman started nursing her baby in public and didn’t bother to hide her bare breast. “EWW Im at lunch,the woman at the table next 2 me is breast feeding her baby w no coverup," Kardashian tweeted on Friday.

Making matters worse, the mother put the baby on the table and proceeded to change her diaper, much to Kardashian's alarm.

The next day, Kardashian, 29, returned to Twitter to clarify her statements about the distasteful dining experience. “Misunderstood tweet-The woman had her boobs out at restraunt yest feeding then laid her on table and changed her w the food there.Unsanitary,” she wrote.

“My sister breast feeds! Its a natural beautiful thing, there's nothing wrong w it, but she covers herself, not w her boobs exposed," Kardashian added. "And you DON'T change a dirty at the dinner table...u use the restroom. Everyone was complaining! Just unsanitary.”

    Experts recommend that children be breastfed within one hour of birth, exclusively breastfed for the first 6 months, and then breastfed until age two with age-appropriate, nutritionally adequate and safe complementary foods.*.*..

  13. Seriously?

    I usually do not comment on things like this – but seems to be a little contradictory. From what "news" I do see of Kim K. (and I DO NOT consider her news whatsoever) her breasts are almost always revealed with low-cut blouses & dresses. Matter of fact, I googled her prior to this comment and you'll see much more than an innocent MOTHER trying to take care of her child. Albeit, maybe not the wisest choice of timing or sanitation. But Kim K – before you make a moron out of yourself NATIONALLY, take a look at what your OWN pictures reveal. You were not nursing a child, yet anyone with a computer has seen your breasts. Be a decent human being for Pete's sake.

    My child DID see a breastfeeding mother at the mall and asked what she was doing. I told the truth, that she was feeding her baby. My child asked why the lady didn't cover up & again I told the truth, that she didn't care who saw her. My child said, that mom is showing her boobies & it looks funny. Yuck! I said that some mothers don't care who sees them and some mothers do care and cover up.

    As a former breastfeeding mother myself, I see NO NEED to bare it all for breastfeeding! If I see a breastfeeding mother in public who isn't covered up, I snap a picture on my cell phone and post the pic on youtube. Obviously, since they don't care who sees them, Youtube shouldn't be a problem. If you don't want to wind up on the internet, THEN COVER UP!!!!

    Take Kim out of the equation.
    if Jada Pinket-Smith ( just trying to find a hollywood mom here) made this comment - would your reaction be different?
    The topics are 1) the whole changing the diaper thing - universally agreed to be gross & wrong
    and 2) Breastfeeding in public. -
    I personally feel this is fine, BUT would it kill you to cover up if doing this at a restaurant? I am not talking about a parka here. Just a light cloth or even a napkin? Go free and breezy at the mall, the park , or anywhere else. But if people are eating ( and are therefore trapped unless they are expected to abandon the food they have paid for) the courteous thing is to lightly cover the exposed breast.

    (and yes – i agree expecting the Moms/babies to nurse in the bathroom is wrong, unless they have a lovely comfy lounge there. 🙂 )

      If I was eating at a restaurant and saw a mom changing the diaper bit on the table, I'd walk out without paying and tell the manager it was his fault because he/she didn't intervene and stop such garbage!

    Seriously, people, grow up. That baby nursing was doing the exact same thing KK was doing-enjoying her lunch. And that baby has just as much right to do that as KK did. Maybe that baby refuses to nurse while covered up-some babies just don't like it. And I can't believe some people have the gall to suggest going into an unsanitary, disgusting bathroom to feed a baby!! Next time any of you see a woman breastfeeding and feel that they should cover up, let me invite you to go ahead and put a blanket over your own head, since you're the one with a problem. Or take your own lunch into the bathroom stall and eat there. Moms try as hard as they can to be sure they are as discreet as possible, but they certainly should not have to stay at home all the time just to try to avoid making people uncomfortable. If breastfeeding in public makes you uncomfortable, that's your problem, not the mom's. Turn around, find a different table, or just avert your eyes. You people who sit and stare, and then turn around and complain about are the ones who have ZERO CLASS.

      ZERO CLASS is breastfeeding WITHOUT covering up a little! If you pull out the boob for the whole world to see, you are no better than a scantly clad woman. Respect yourself and cover up! Otherwise, deal with those who will call you on it. Yes, you have the right to breastfeed in public, but the public has the right to not see your boob flopping around!

    I can't get over some of these negative responses about breasfeeding.....#1 it is so much better for the baby #2 if a new mom is out and baby gets hungry what do you expect them to do, not feed the baby...I remember when I breastfed my baby walking around a walmart (covered) and I had a couple tell me that I should go into the restroom to feed my baby.....ummm sure if you bring your lunch in and eat in there with us....are you people that moronic....do you want to eat your lunch in a walmart bathroom??? No really hmmmmm #3 those talking about how they dont want to see boob and what if little kids are around...how about tell them that its the most natural way to feed an infant and then blind fold them because I have seen more cotton in an asprin bottle than I have on some of these latest fashions out here and also on not wanting to see boob....umm how about the 300 lb. women that think its ok to wear size 2 clothing and have all their junk hanging out....you people need to get over yourselves...especially you Mz Kardashian...............you know what they say about those who live in glass houses!!!!!

  28. UGh!

    It has been incredibly frustrating to read all of these comments, mostly from men who just don't get it. There have been MULTIPLE suggestions that women should cover up their "saggy" boobs b/c you don't want to look at them... NEWSFLASH-don't look at them. I'm sure if it was a perky, perfectly round boob, you'd be watching for as long as possible to see if you could see the whole thing!

    Also-many people have suggested she take the child to the bathroom to feed him/her. Um.... do YOU like to eat in the bathroom? Then why do you think a baby would? Have you ever stopped to consider how disgusting bathrooms are? NO matter how clean they are, there are still tons of germs everywhere.... and newborns are especially susceptible to germs. And where is the mother supposed to sit? UNless this is some big, formal bathroom, I doubt there's a comfortable chair for her to sit and a place to put her diaper bag and purse and whatever else she's carrying.

    I just think you people are so ridiculous to get all riled up about the breast-feeding part of this story. It is the healthiest way for a baby to eat, and when a baby is fussing b/c they are hungry, I don't think there's any other option than to feed them. This isn't about women's rights... this is about children's rights to have a good, balanced meal.... and for people who have older children and you're afraid they'll see something inappropriate.... you might as well turn off the TV and the computer too b/c there's PLENTY of inappropriate stuff for your child to see... heaven forbid they see a good parent taking care of their child in public. Much better to let the infant scream it's head off, definitely.

  29. Whatever

    First of all, I agree with several posts that Kim K. is covering for her breastfeeding comment by talking about the diaper changing incident. Think about it, she stated she was eating outside (flimsy tables), this Mom was just going to clear away all the crap on these flimsy tables to change an infant. Give me a break! A LOT of these quaint little cafe's have no adequate space to breastfeed; so, should a Mom go into a bathroom stall and breastfeed the baby? Just as you dont want to see a dirty diaper, Mom's despise taking their babies into public restrooms.

    Oh, and Kim Kardashian and her opinions are irrelevant to me. But while she is disgusted by a diaper being changed on a restaurant table...that is extremely unsanitary. That's pretty much a health code violation. An officer would get a lot of flak I'm sure, but I would not blame the officer if he gave the mother a citation.

    Go ahead and breast feed in public, but please be discrete. Cover up. Don't invite the eyes and the attention of strangers into your business. Give your baby a chance to eat in a quiet, safe-feeling environment. If that means putting a blanket over him, do it.

    But...do infants not feed on a schedule? My question is why you're out in public at a restaurant when it's time for your baby to eat.

    Bottle feeding disgusts me...formula smells and it offends me to see babies being fed artificial food. Therefore, I respectfully request that if your bottle fed baby is hungry in public, PLEASE do the right thing and feed them in the bathroom. Of course babies have to eat, but that doesn't mean I have to endure it while I'm eating my nice dinner.

    How ya like them apples? If we are going to ban breastfed babies to eat in the bathroom, let's ban them ALL...equal treatment for all babies.

    I hate this image of a breastfeeding mother "whipping her boob out on the table". Puh-leese. Most moms try their darndest to be as discreet as possible when nursing. We do our best, believe me! I am not an exhibitionist, but I have to find a compromise when my baby is hungry. My kid won't wear a hat and he isn't going to tolerate a blanket over his head. I get him on fast and I pull my shirt down to cover up, but if you are staring directly at me, you might see a less-than-1 second flash of boob. So try this: DON'T STARE. It's rude, didn't your mother ever tell you that??

      "Gross," courtesy goes both ways. Blue already said she tried to cover it up as best as she could... what more could you ask for? I'm pretty sure some of these mothers don't reveal their bodies on purpose. Learn to understand how difficult it may be for them, and maybe you will be able to adjust and act accordingly. The world does not revolve around you.

    The problem soo many of you have that are getting heated because people are telling you to cover up when breast feeding is summed up in 2 words: No Class! You don't get, and you never will get what people are trying to say to you. You have no friggin class. That's why you don't want to cover up, that's why you want to act like a 5 yr. old telling people that they can't tell you what to do.

    You're immature. No one EVER said anywhere that people are against breast feeding a child. But everything has some dignity to it. And you showing your bare breasts is really you just trying to use the baby as an excuse to show off your naked body, and dare anyone to complain about it. There are plenty of women that breastfeed covering themselves. Some of you don't, because you have no standards, and never had.

      Immature is what you just did... rushing to a complete assumption about mothers who show their body. I think it's safe to say that they care more about the child's well-being than your attention to her body. Not to say it is right or wrong, but I would like to point out that your assumption holds no water.

      I nursed my child. However, if we went out in public, I always took bottles of breast milk. Why offend people just to say I can do this by law? Honestly, some of these breast feeding moms sound like its just all about them and what they want. Most babies eat every two hours, so feed your baby at home, go have your lunch, go home and feed baby. If its really about the baby and his/her needs, then you really don't have to shop and lunch for over two hours.

    No shirt, no service. That applies to men and women alike in eating establishments for sanitation reasons. I don't see breast-feeding a baby as explicitly violating that rule, but the woman should make an effort to cover up what she can.

    By the by... it's equal-parts amusing and sad to see the number of people relying to the messenger rather than the message. I have no love for Kardashian.. or most any reality TV star for that matter.. but she's right about heavy breast exposure being questionable in a dining establishment.

    For all of those who said you didn't want to see a woman's breast "hanging out"...for God's sake, DON'T LOOK. No nursing mother is putting on a show for your benefit...she's feeding her child. That's it. All the rest of the discomfort is an indication of your own hang-ups. Turn your head away and carry on with your activity thus allowing the mother to carry on with hers.

    I believe that the mother has the right to be able to breast feed your children where you like, but as a mother of two, both of which I breast fed, I feel that you should also respect those around you. Not everyone wants to see your breasts, and your child can still be feed and covered up. And Kim didn't say that she had a thing with breast feeding mothers, just respect others around you.

    nothing wrong with removing your breast from your bra to feed your child. It's a natural thing for us moms. It's a shame that someone that makes her money on a realty show should have an opinion on anything. I do agree that a diaper shouldn't be changed on the table. I don't have a problem if it's on a bench if the bathroom doesn't accomate a diaper changer. But, if you have a cloth covering the table I don't see what the big deal is.

    Yes women can breast feed where ever they want BUT they should cover up. I don't want my 7 year old to see a full on breast while we're eating dinner. I say full on because so many women dress whorish and are almost showing all their breasts even with a "shirt" on. Even if the diaper changing thing was made up by Kim, I've seen mothers changing their babies just about anywhere.....I've seen many a diaper in parking lots too! But overall Kim should just STFU, she's an overall bimbo-ho. Maybe she can get some plastic surgery to keep those fake lips shut.

    If you need to feed your baby then do it just cover up. It's called courtesy I don't just fart in the middle of a restaurant because I legally have the right to it's just rude and gross. Breastfeeding isn't gross but someones boob hanging out in public is.

    Hey Johnjohn – where in this little blurb did it say Kim was at a mall? Have you ever been to a restaurant in LA? There's barely room for a grown woman in most bathroom – one has to queue up outside the door as there isn't even room to wait in them. And really, Kim K in a mall? Priceless suggestion.

    On top of that, why do we believe this woman actually did change her baby at the table? Seems more likely Kim realized she said something very, very dumb and is trying to make it seem okay. The original tweet mentions nothing of a diaper change. Just breast feeding.

    Kim is correct and if you people were not so ignorant and hateful you would acknowledge that she is, no one is saying don't breastfeed but covering up is the right thing to do. How would you like if some woman whips out her breast and start breastfeeding with no cover up in front of your kids while at lunch? And the changing thing is jus ridiculous. I agree with the poster that responded to all of you people who said it is natural. Maybe next month I will just walk around whil menustrating and not use any protection. I hope to meet you in a restaurant while I am dripping. You folks are unbelievable, so busy hating on Kim that you missed the point.

    While breast feeding is the principle new Baby born, I do support Kim, that Mom should not only cover while breastfeeding they also must have special moments when their kids are feeding, mom should also be focus while feeding their kids. Because it is their time to have food, and grow.

    I agree with the changing the diaper on the table-that is fairly repulsive and I'm sure fairly unsanitary, not to mention unhealthy....but isn't it possible that the bathroom didn't have the little changing tables? I've been in a few of those places. VERY inconvenient. As for the breastfeeding...while I personally feel that if a woman wants to pop it out in public so she can use her boobs for the purpose in which they are intended (as much as you men act otherwise, they are there to feed our babies), I also understand that some people are bothered by such a display, which is why I would sulk off to the bathroom whenever my little girl was hungry, because apparently everyone else's comfort is more important than me feeding my little girl.

      MOST mall bathrooms have changing stations in both the mens and the womens room. It will be very rare thatyou find one without, but even without, there is still counter space in the bathroom...I'm sure that everyone here knows that bathrooms are where the poop goes. Right? Right.

      I believe that you are the self-absorbed, self-important little pig here. Mothers breastfeeding their child in public is Protected By LAW. That means a mother can take out her breast and feed her child whenever, wherever and you cannot do anything about it. Contrary to what some of you fools seem to believe on here, most breastfeeding moms do not want to whip out their boobs in public but as always, moms put the wants & needs of another human being...their child... before their own. Oh and to this mom, my child's need will always trump anyone elses. If you don't like to see us moms "whip it out', then do us all a favor and do not look. No one is forcing you to look. God gave you the ability to turn your head and close your eyes.

    wow, what a bunch of hostile people you all are! if mothers want to breastfeed, then good for them. if they want their boobs hanging out for all to see while doing so, then do so at home or in a more private place. yes, mothers have the right to nurse bare-breasted in public but not everybody wants to see a woman's bare breast in public as they're trying to eat lunch, taking a walk in a public place, etc. i'm female and even i don't want to be forced to see that. mothers may have the right to breastfeed in public but they also should be considerate of those around who might not want to see her bare breasts hanging out in the process, and at least make an effort to either cover up or make sure her bare breasts is not in blatant open view for the whole world to see and oggle at. as far as changing diapers on an eating table – that is just plain unsanitary and disgusting, and that's what those nice changing tables in bathrooms are for! i'm sorry but if i go out to eat and someone sat nearby, plunked their baby on the dining table and proceeded to change the baby's diaper, I would be seriously grossed out and likely to get up and leave, complaining to management as I did so.

    I have add with women doing that and saying, 'I am doing what is natural' well when I have my period, I won't bother to wear a sanitary napkin, I will just bleed all over the place or if my nose is runny, I'll just let nature allow it to drip all over. Women need to fight for important goals, like EQUAL PAY FOR EQUAL WORK, or promote me on my merits not the size of my bra, or time off from work, as in a year or two to spend the necessary time with your child before returning to work. American women have become too stupid and forgot the real fight.

      No offense, but there are some things that should not happen in public places and not covering you and your baby while breastfeeding is one of them. Yes, breastfeeding is a completely natural and beautiful thing, HOWEVER, breastfeeding mothers need to consider those around them. And sitting exposed at a resturant is just inappropriate. Even more so if children are present. Changing the baby on the table was even more inappropriate. I think what Kim Kardashian is trying to say, NICELY, is "hey, I respect that your feeding your baby, but I really do not feel comfortable with you being exposed could you please cover up. Thank you."

      You have to admit....it is kind of ironic coming from her. We are not talking a nun making the complaint, although a nun would have a bit more compassion for the mother who is probably just trying to choke down a quick meal herself.

      The whole situation is appalling. The mother needs to be covered. Maybe she could bring along some sort of portable shelter, like a tent- hey yeah, a tent; she sets up the tent and gets inside when the baby is hungry. Also the baby should be blindfolded. Problem solved.

    They also have cute breastfeeding hats for the baby that have a nice big brim to give mom coverage, and it still looks like a cute baby hat. (just search "breastfeeding hat") You don't have to have a huge cover or blanket to be discreet. That said, breastfeeding is a natural thing, and moms have a right to do whatever they want.

    Yes, I agree that changing a diaper on a table that people eat on is v. unsanitary – even if it's just a wet diaper, but the breastfeeding thing, I think Kim's wrong about that. It's perfectly fine for a woman to bf her baby in public (while not full-on expose herself) but I think she has every right to do so in public. It's ok for women to bare almost everything walking on the streets nowadays all in the name of fashion, yet when a woman is providing nutrients to a baby naturally, it's so frowned upon and disgusting? Whatever. Kim, just wait until you're a mom!

      Restaurant staff should be reprimanded in the form of a failed environmental health inspection for not intervening to instruct the woman to use the restroom and not in the dining area to change a freaking diaper. Was the woman brought up in a barn? The whole table setup should have been bagged, tagged and thrown in the dumpster. There are way too many fecal-transmitted diseases spread to foodhandlers, including waiters, waitresses, etc. during normal foodservice activities as it is. As an registered EH specialist I do say from expertise that the facility should have been shut down for putting the rest of facility consumers at risk. This would make a good story for Dateline.
