Khloé Kardashian revealed in July that she switched her daughter, True, over to formula after nearly three months. But on Sunday, November 18, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 34, shared some new information.
I tried breast-feeding for weeks and weeks! For me it was so painful but I also was not producing a lot of milk. So I had to pump every time she was napping. I guess due to stress my milk was not coming in. I tried and I just couldn’t give her enough. So I had to go to formula. https://t.co/3ohDLsa1RU

“I tried breast-feeding for weeks and weeks! For me it was so painful but I also was not producing a lot of milk,” Kardashian told a fan on Twitter. “So I had to pump every time she was napping. I guess due to my stress my milk was not coming in.”
Though the Good American designer did not elaborate on the source of her stress, but her boyfriend Tristan Thompson’s cheating scandal likely weighed heavy on her mind. In April, just days before Kardashian gave birth, news broke that the Cleveland Cavaliers player, 27, had been unfaithful with multiple women.
Kardashian’s reaction to Thompson’s betrayal recently played out on season 15 of KUWTK. Cameras even filmed the athlete in the delivery room as True arrived.When a viewer commented on Twitter that the Revenge Body host appeared composed despite the drama, she replied: “Oh well thank God a camera was NOT with me in Cleveland!!! I won’t put in writing what I did but let’s just say he’s LUCKY I was9 months pregnant.”
The E! personality also stated that she has no regrets about allowing Thompson to witness the birth of their now-7-month-old baby.
“I want her to have videos and pictures of her daddy there, holding her etc. I want her to know she is LOVE and my happiness,” Kardashian explained on Twitter earlier this month. “Babies feel energy! I know this! I chose to my put feelings aside for the both and to true and have as much positive energy that I could.”
A source told Us Weekly i n November, that while Kardashian and the NBA player “continue to have a very, very fractured relationship,” the Strong Looks Better Naked author has no intention of leaving him. “She doesn’t want to be alone. She’s scared to raise True by herself,” the insider revealed. “Being a single parent can be so lonely.”
Keeping Up With the Kardashians airs on E! on Sundays at 9 p.m. ET.
“I tried breast-feeding for weeks and weeks!” Kardashian, 34, wrote in response to a fan account on Twitter. Stress can significantly affect the hormone that supports lactation, according to Jada Shapiro, a lactation consultant, birth doula and the founder of Boober, an on-demand breastfeeding support service based in Brooklyn.
