Now that she has a tiny bebe of her own, Kim Kardashian is an overflowing fountain of wisdom about pregnancy and childcare. Elle spoke to Kim and sisters Khloe and Kourtney at their Operation Shower event recently, and Kim had interesting things to say about pregnancy dressing, her baby's "style," and motherhood essentials.
In regards to the best baby shower gift one could give, the sisters agree that diaper genies are invaluable. Said Kim, "I recommend that everyone have a Diaper Genie. Who can live without it?" Kourtney: "I have the best one. Mine is tin." Kim: "Yeah tin. That's the one I have. It's the best one. You need like an air-tight [seal]. The one I have is by Ubbi."
On baby style, Kim and Kourtney are divided. "North doesn't really like pink. Like, she's very neutral…she doesn't like prints." That's right, one-year-old North is very neutral. "She hasn't liked it for her whole life," said Kim. "North is a princess girly, but in creams. Like a cream textured princess." Meanwhile, "Kourtney is a full hippie, so Penelope is in like full hippie gear."
Kim has an interesting take on dressing while pregnant. "I recommend hiding for a good year and having no pregnancy style," she said. "That's what I recommend. If you can do it, hide. Never leave the house...That's really my recommendation. Wear a huge blanket." Khloe: "This is the best interview I've ever done."
