Kim Kardashian Opens Up About Parenthood – And Being A Strict Mum

Section: Celebrity Mums

Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Kim has opened up about being a mum to baby North and has admitted that she’s a disciplined mother.

‘I’m really fun and playful, but I’m really strict on nap time, and sleeping in her own crib,’ she told the MailOnline.

‘Like Kourtney’s style is where her kids sleep in bed with her, so especially with the third baby coming – they’re going to need a bigger bed or they’re going to need some other rules.

‘And maybe on weekends, [North will] come and sleep in the bed with us. But … I’m not crazy strict.’

Newlywed Kim, who married rapper Kayne West, 37, at the Forte di Belvedere in Florence, Italy, in May, also revealed that she has learnt a lot from her sister Kourtney, 35, who has two children, Mason, four, and Penelope, two, with partner Scott Disick – and another on the way.

Mother-of-one Kim also admitted that she would like more children – but not six like her ‘momager’ mother Kris Jenner.

‘I grew up with a lot of siblings so I know what that’s like.

‘I don’t know if I would really follow in my mum’s footsteps and have six; that’s a little crazy.

‘I don’t know how they did it – they were in their 20s and they weren’t really thinking right!

‘I like a big family and I would definitely like one more and see how that goes.’

The reality star juggles a busy lifestyle between being a mum, her reality show and various business ventures – but believes it’s important for new mums to find time for themselves.

‘To prioritise is really important and you have to be an organised person to get it all done and make sure you have enough time for everyone – for my husband and my baby and for work,’ she said.
‘So I make sure I do take time for myself; I have lunches with my girlfriends, and do things that are important.’

But there’s one benefit to starring in your own reality show – you can spend all day with your little one – and Kim adds that she feels ‘lucky’.

‘The beauty of having a reality show – especially as we film at the house – is that the baby’s there. So I actually get to be with her – as opposed to if I had a job in an office, where I couldn’t be in the same room with her while I was working.’
