KOURTNEY Kardashian has fans divided after revealing she is still sleeping with her 10-year-old daughter Penelope.
The Kardashians star, 43, revealed that Penelope has slept in her bed “pretty much every day since she was born.”
Kourtney admitted that while appearing on Amanda Hirsch’s Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast on Tuesday.
“She’s slept with me every day since she was born and pretty much still does,” Kourtney said.
“Unless she has a girlfriend to sleep over with or she’s leaving me to sleep with Travis. [husband Travis Barker] or at Aunt Coco’s [Khloe Kardashian] or Aunt Kiki’s [Kim Kardashian]. But apart from that we are so close.”
Amanda praised Kourtney for being a “very versatile” mom who “doesn’t follow any of the rules [she’s] shall”.
Kourtney agreed, stressing how similar she is to her “mini-me” Penelope.
“I can’t even explain it, she’s my girl I’m not worried about,” the reality star said.
“Simon [Huck, Kourtney’s friend] always says she’s a mini-me to the core.
“But we’ve spent so much time together and we spend so much time together. And I just don’t worry about her.”
Listeners voiced their differing opinions on Kourtney’s parenting on Reddit.
One wrote: “I’ll be honest, I find this a bit strange. How good if the kid is about 5 but 10???”
Another wrote: “These poor kids have no privacy. Imagine you are ten years old and the whole world, including all your friends, sees this. Any 10-year-old I know would be embarrassed.”
OPEN AND HONEST
Others praised Kourtney for being open about her sleeping habits.
One fan wrote: “There’s nothing wrong with P sleeping in her mother’s bed. Children need that extra love, cuddle and security. Especially young people in today’s world. She won’t sleep in it forever.”
Another user commented, “I hate that co-sleeping with your child is so vilified in America. Co-sleeping with your children is extremely natural and very common in most parts of the world.
“I hate that other people feel embarrassed about their decision to sleep together, it’s almost made out to be a ‘dirty secret’ for parents. Good of Kourtney for speaking so openly on the subject!”
Kourtney has three children with her ex Scott Disick – Mason, 12, Penelope and Reign, seven,
This isn’t the first time Kourtney has opened up about her kids’ sleep habits.
In 2018, she said she’s had a “different experience” of co-sleeping with each of her children.
In a blog post on her site Poosh, the Hulu star noted that she read Dr. Read William Sears while pregnant with Penelope.
The book has reduced the stigma of parents and children sleeping in the same bed.
Kourtney also said she “responsibly slept together” with her eldest child, Mason.
“I remember going through times where I tried to get him to sleep in his own bed. Many nights he would start in his room and go to ours,” she wrote.
“I finally accepted a family bed and followed his lead when he was ready to sleep in his room. When he was seven, he started sleeping alone in his room.”
Meanwhile, Kourtney recently faced backlash over her parenting with son Mason.
She revealed that she has a strict policy regarding junk food and diets for her children and has banned Mason from eating fries.
The Poosh founder recalled a time when her eldest child wanted McDonald’s fries but turned them down.
Following the backlash, Kourtney declared on Instagram, “…We love and eat a lot of fries, but we try to avoid fast food fries!”
Kourtney then listed the ingredients in french fries, including “potatoes, vegetable oil, hydrogenated soybean oil and natural beef flavoring.”
