No mom should be shamed, unless they do something outrageous that will affect the well being of their child.
Unfortunately, celebrity moms are criticized the most, especially if they're a reality star who uses social media to stay in touch with their fans.
Khloe Kardashian welcomed her first child, True, in April 2018, and if people haven't been criticizing her for staying with her baby daddy, Tristan Thompson, they've been ridiculing her for the way she treats her child.
Even before Khloe gave birth, people on social media mocked her for the way she touched her pregnant belly.
"Don't Touch Your Belly So Much"
Khloe wasn't going to let these comments slide.
If someone is a true fan of the Kardashians, they would know that the 33-year-old reality star has been wanting to have children for a long time.
After marrying Lamar Odom, she tried for a baby, and even fertility treatments couldn't help her to reach her goal.
Many fans were ecstatic for Khloe when she announced the news of her pregnancy, but the people who wanted to mock her for the way she displayed her affection to her unborn child, she had a few words for them.
She tweeted this to her more than 26 million followers: "People are very opinionated about my bump. I choose to cradle my bump because it's mine. I've waited for this very short moment for years. I have only months to enjoy this phase in my life, so I will touch my bump and love my bump as often as I choose."
People are very opinionated about my bump. I choose to cradle my bump because it’s MINE. I’ve waited for this VERY short moment for YEARS. I have only months to enjoy this phase in my life, so I will touch my bump and love my bump as often as I choose. Mommy loves you baby! ❤️— Khloé (@khloekardashian) February 28, 2018
A majority of her fans were shocked that Khloe was criticized for the way she touched her pregnant belly. They thought is was downright ridiculous for her to get hate for something like this.
But you know what's even more ridiculous, people shaming her for feeding True baby formula.
When Doing The Best You Can Is Not Enough
This all started when the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star revealed that she's been giving True Baby Brezza Formula Pro One-Step Bottle Maker.
She noted that this product was a "total lifesaver" since she has had to supplement feeding with formula.
“Technically, I don’t need something like this because I breastfeed, but because I don’t produce enough milk, I also have to give a bottle with every feeding,” she explained.
“And, with the formula I use, I have to give True the bottle within 30 minutes of making it, so it’s amazing to have this machine make it for me.”
Some of her followers took advantage of her honesty and criticized her for it.
One Twitter fan tweeted at her to express her "mad respect" for opening up about an issue many new moms face:
"I had to do that when I went back to work, and I was so embarrassed that I couldn’t produce enough because I was away from [my son]."
Khloe was so touched by the fan's heartwarming comment that she replied:
“Mommy shaming is real! But the truth is I’ve tried and tried and tried to breastfeed only and it wasn’t working for me."
“I feel fortunate that I am able to still breastfeed but with the help of formula,” Kardashian continued. “Breastfeeding is something I really wanted to do. Just am not fully able.”

Fortunately, many of her fans had her back on this one.
No shame in feeding your baby...no matter how they get nourished.— Elizabeth Brown (@Elizabe59855025) June 9, 2018
In itself being able to “carry” your child is a blessing in itself! There are many who struggle to or are not even able to. Show your love, not just now but always. The world is in need of future leaders who have love and empathy. All the best with your blessing— Irma G (@IrmaG) March 1, 2018
Dont worry about it. As long as you and baby are healthy happy and stressfree and postive spirits thats ALL that matters. After 8 months of BF i stopped myself even though i had milk...more for selfish reasons, boy do i regret now BUT thats what worked for me then. #mamaknowbest— Naz Hussey (@Nazhussey) June 10, 2018
