Breastfeeding Lessons from the Kardashians

A key (and overdramatic) moment on the Kardashians’ reality show gave some valuable lessons about men and breastfeeding.


Kimberly Seals Allers: Earlier this week, after a long day of deadlines and meetings, I was desperately in need of a mindless television moment and channel-surfed my way to the “Keeping up with the Kardashians” reality TV show.

Have you seen this quality production?

Three sisters on an unclear mission. One became famous for having a big booty (an apparent first for a non-black or Latina person), another recently married an NBA superstar after two months of dating, and alas, the third, Kourtney, is very pregnant. At least in this episode she was (I know from a recent trip to the supermarket checkout line that she has already had her baby and sold all the pictures). But I digress.

In this particular episode, the often-reviled baby daddy, Scott, did the unthinkable. He didn’t show up for a breastfeeding class. OMG! Kourtney returns home in a huff. Scott says he didn’t think he needed to go to a breastfeeding class because it has nothing to do with him. Kourtney lets him know with a few well-timed F-bombs that it absolutely does have something to do with him, and if he doesn’t “get on her team” immediately, then the relationship is over. Drama!!
