Reality star Kim Kardashian has revealed the trials and tribulations of breastfeeding, confessing daughter North West hates it when she nurses her baby brother, Saint.

The 36-year-old welcomed her little boy with husband Kanye West in December, and while she has got back into the swing of breastfeeding, two-year-old North is still adjusting to the new addition to the family and his needs.

"I'm about two months into breastfeeding and I'm not gonna lie - it can be time-consuming," Kardashian said in a post on her website on Tuesday.

"For some reason, North hates when I feed the baby, and she lays on my lap so Saint can't be right in front of me to eat, LOL!"

However, the mother-of-two has found a clever way to get around her daughter's jealousy, by making sure she feels involved in caring for her baby brother.

"I've started to include her: Sometimes I will pump and have her feed him the bottle, that totally worked!" she wrote.

"She loved helping me, as opposed to my attention being off of her, and now she is my little helper."

She said, "He's my best friend."

While Kardashian had a difficult pregnancy with both children, suffering from the potentially life-threatening condition placenta accreta throughout both terms, breastfeeding has proved to be drama-free.

"I feel super lucky that breastfeeding is easy for me and I produce a lot of milk - so much that I've taken over my mom's freezer with tons of milk!" she said, before wading into the ongoing debate about breastfeeding in public.

"I know some people find breastfeeding such a private, personal experience, while other people are very open and even breastfeed in public," she wrote.

"Now that I'm a mom, I say whatever makes you comfortable goes."I still personally wouldn't breastfeed at a restaurant with a bunch of people I didn't know staring at me. I would, however, breastfeed in front of my girlfriends. I think it's such a natural experience and I'm not shy about that."
