The Kardashians are bringing back wet nursing!
Famous sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Kim Kardashian are excited to share in the joys of motherhood. And during an appearance on the TODAY show, Kourtney offered to breastfeed her pregnant sister’s baby-to-be.
Kim recalled a conversation she had with Kourtney about the possibility of wet nursing.
“She said to me, ‘One sister should babysit all the kids, so I can go out or vice-versa, and whichever sister is babysitting should just breastfeed all the kids that are there,’” Kim shared.
While Kim was “disgusted” by the idea, she went on to ask Kourtney, “Does that not freak you out?”
Kourtney responded with, “No, it doesn’t,” adding, “That’s what they did back in the day.”
And they’re not the first celebrities to openly discuss cross-nursing.
On a goodwill trip to Sierra Leone in 2009, Salma Hayek famously breastfed a week-old infant whose mother was too malnourished to produce milk herself.
