The new mom is enjoying her time tucked away at home with her little one — and nursing is a really important part of the mother-daughter’s daily routine!
Kim Kardashian is loving her time at home “just a little bit too much right now,” she said on a video for mom Kris Jenner‘s show Kris on August 2. Her mom also revealed that her time home with baby involves breastfeeding North West. Kim is genuinely enjoying nursing — and it’s even helping her with her weight loss!

Kim “is happy and healthy,” updated Kris on her talk show. “She’s eating really well, working out a little bit, and nursing.”
Breastfeeding has been an important part of Kim’s first months with her daughter — and it’s not all about the weight loss! There are many reasons for making the choice to breastfeed, and in Nori’s individual case, there are several factors that were likely considered.
Dr. David Ghozland, M.D. has told 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.
Kris and her cohost Sean “Diddy” Combs discussed Kim’s breastfeeding in regards to her weight loss efforts — and Diddy fully believes that breastfeeding will help in Kim’s post-baby body “snapback.”

Kris seemed to love the term “snapback” when Diddy suggested it, but she is not pressuring Kim to get back to her pre-baby body. Especially not in a “snap!” Kris explained on her show that Kim “is not there yet,” but that she is constantly making great progress. Her slow and steady efforts and healthy lifestyle will surely pay off!
What do YOU think, HollyMoms? Do you think it’s great that Kim is enjoying breastfeeding Nori?
