Kim is finally a new mom! The reality star recently gave birth to a healthy baby girl, and now all eyes are on how she’ll raise her bundle of joy.
Kim Kardashian gave birth to a baby girl June 15 with boyfriend Kanye West, shocking the world with an early delivery. The baby is happy and healthy, but now the questions turn to the new parents who have to make big decisions regarding their little one. One of the first — should Kim breastfeed?
Kim Kardashian Should Breastfeed Her Little Girl
Dr. Tara Solomon, medical director of The Women’s Wellness of South Florida tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that Kim breastfeeding will only have a positive effect on her little girl. Dr. Solomon says:
Breast-milk has so many more benefits than canned powder milk because you pass on immune antibodies to the baby through breast-milk. There is no immune benefit to powdered or canned milk. The baby doesn’t have a mature immune system until 6 months after birth so a baby born early will have an even less developed immune system.
Furthermore, Dr. David Ghozland, M.D. tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY:
Breastfeeding has many health benefits for the baby and mommy. In the very beginning of breastfeeding, the mother produces colostrum — nature’s super food. It has high levels of protein, good fat, and high amounts of immunoglobulins which helps with the baby’s immune system. As a result, babies who are breastfed get sick less in early childhood. Breastfeeding helps bond mommy and baby. The one on one contact is healing and beneficial for both mom and baby. Breastfeeding also accelerates weight loss. A mom can burn an additional 500 calories a day from breastfeeding. If Kim’s baby daughter is in an incubator, Kim could always pump her milk and then feed her baby with a bottle. But if her daughter is strong enough, she can just breastfeed her naturally.
We just know Kim will do whatever is necessary to make sure her little girl’s best interests are at heart!

We can’t wait to see what their baby girl looks like — and what her name is!
