Kim Kardashian is ecstatic about the birth of her son, Saint West, with her husband Kanye West. But now, it’s being reported that the new mother is having a difficult time adjusting to caring for an infant again. According to Radar Online, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star is reportedly cranky and overwhelmed following the birth of her son.
The two haven’t been home a week and Kim Kardashian is already having a hard time with her new little bundle of joy. In fact, things have reportedly gotten so overwhelming that the mother-of-two is already considering hiring more help to assist her with caring for the children. An inside source close to the famous couple has shared details about Kim’s struggles with the online news outlet. Based on the insider’s claims, Kim will definitely need time to adjust to caring for two small children.
“Kim and Kanye are definitely going to be hiring extra help,” the insider told Radar Online. “It is already way too much for them to handle and it has only been three days!
The insider claims Kim Kardashian could barely handle her 2-year-old daughter, North, and having a second child has made things even more challenging. The insider went on to reveal Kim and Kanye’s alleged plans to care for their two children.
The 34-year-old reality star may be hiring more nannies in the near future. “She can barely take care of one,” the family insider told Radar at the time. “But having a second child will give her even more reason to hire more help.”
However, Kim Kardashian’s mother, Kris Jenner, says otherwise. Over the weekend, the Kardashian matriarch spoke publicly about her daughter’s progress following the birth of her new grandson. While she did admit that Kim is a bit crank and uncomfortable, she and the baby are doing just fine.
“She was amazing. I mean, she’s a really strong girl — a little cranky when she gets uncomfortable — but other than that, she’s amazing,” Jenner told Entertainment Tonight on Wednesday.
“She’s doing great right now. I think she’s happy that part of it is over, and he’s here,” she added to Us. “And he’s healthy and everybody’s good and all tucked in at home. So we’re good.”
Although the rumors about Kim Kardashian’s reaction to being a new mother have yet to be confirmed or denied, it wouldn’t be surprising since she reportedly suffered labor complications. According to Entertainment Tonight, Kim described the birth of her daughter, North as the “most painful experience ever” due to a condition called placenta accreta which occurs when the placenta is stuck to the wall of the uterus after the birth of the child.
When this happens, doctors must resort to manual measures to remove it, which can be very painful for the delivering mother. On her website, she said the doctor “had to stick his entire arm in me and detach the placenta with his hand, scraping it away from my uterus with his fingernails.”
According to People magazine, Kim Kardashian was quite nervous about the birth of her son, fearing she’d suffer the same complications. Kim also revealed that there was a possibility her uterus would have to be removed if the placenta developed too deeply.
“There’s not a whole lot I can do to prevent it, so my anxiety is a little high leading up to my delivery. They think I’ll have placenta accreta again, so if the placenta grows a little bit deeper than it did last time, then they are prepared to have my uterus removed, which is a little scary for me,.”
Although she reportedly suffered placenta accreta with the birth of her son, doctors were able to remove the placenta manually. At this point, the rumors about Kim Kardashian’s postpartum woes have yet to be confirmed or denied. However, Kim has already expressed desires to have a third child. So, she may not be as overwhelmed as speculated.
