Jay Cutler Unclogging Kristin Cavallari’s Breastmilk Is A More Common Problem Than You’d Think

Kristin Cavallari revealed in an episode on the second season of her E! reality TV show Very Cavallari that once while on vacation and away from her baby, her breast had gotten clogged and her husband, former Bears quarterback Jay Cutler had to manually unclog it for her.

“I had like, major clogged ducts,” Cavallari tells her friends in the clip. “Jay had to get them out for me. Sucking harder than he’s ever sucked,” adding in a second clip, “and you know what? Saved my life.”

A breastfeeding woman can experience one of her milk ducts getting clogged when the milk doesn’t empty out completely after a feeding or a pumping session, causing a blockage.

In one 2011 study, Refinery 29 pointed out, about 67.5% of breastfeeding women experienced mastitis, an inflammation of the breast often caused by clogged milk ducts, and an additional 4.5% of breastfeeding women experienced clogged milk ducts without mastitis. Both conditions lead to painful, sore breasts, and mastitis may also include a fever and chills. Mastitis can be treated with antibiotics, while clogged ducts can usually be unclogged at home, or with the help of a doctor.

I love that she shared that although I’m sure a lot of people will say they’re grossed out.

Once, years ago, I was attending the BET Awards in Los Angeles with a friend, after giving birth to my son about 6 months prior who I was still nursing my infant who was at home in Maryland with his dad. The pain became so unbearable mid show that I had to go to the bathroom to express the milk in the commode! Gross I know!

Years later, reading about British pop singer Adele saying she had to pump milk in the bathroom at the Grammys after giving birth to her son six years ago made me feel good that celebs are really just like us! ha!

Kristin Cavallari has a New Reality TV Show And Her Husband Jay Culter Is the Star

Having covered the Laguna Beach and The Hills’ alumn’s respective pregnancies, I try to keep up with their post mommyhood whereabouts. That’s going to be much easier these days for Kristin Cavallari fans (I’m one and defended her against her #1 online troll and became a page 1 Google page rank because of it).

She has a show that recently premiered on E! called Very Cavallari.

The docu series chronicles the shoe designer’s attempt to open a brick and mortar Nashville store of her  Uncommon James lifestyle brand.

According to Washington Post, The Ringer, Chicago Times, and Twitter, her husband, longtime Chicago Bears quarterback, Jay Cutler, steals the show and every single scene he is in.

That’s good because that’s ratings gold and means the show will be a hit! Woot! Good for her! Check out the trailer!

Chrissy Teigen Defends Kristin Cavallari against ‘Parent Shaming’

Chrissy Teigen defended fellow celebrity mom Kristin Cavallari after the Laguna Beach alum was recently “parent shamed” and accused of starving her children.

The former Fabulist host posted a photo on Instagram of her sons on the beach during Independence Day and in the photos the boys backs were turned and one looked so thin, you could see his bones protruding through his skin.

“Seeing pictures of your boys and how they look is a bit shocking to see! I know you cook healthy but to see the bones just doesn’t seem normal, sorry!” read one comment.

Of course, Cavallari replied, “Yep, I starve my children. Just blocked the most people I’ve ever blocked in my entire life. Happy 4th hahaha.”

Tegien replied to an E!News tweet of a report about the social media attack.

“I will never know why parents criticize others so harshly, knowing they’d go insane if they were on the receiving end ALLTHETIME,” the best selling cook-book author wrote on Twitter. “NO parent out there thinks they’re perfect. I loathe these s–thead commenters. Who would want to make someone feel horrible for fun?”

She added, “Anyway, love you @KristinCav and screw everyone’s bored ass!”

Cavallari replied to the defense on Tuesday morning, tweeting back “lol thx girl love u and ur little girl is adorable.”

Cavallari is often a source of criticism especially after she revealed in 2014 that she has chosen not to vaccinate her children.

Editor’s Note:

After reviewing several of the comments, it appears to me that the majority were positive and supportive and a lot of mom jumped in to share that they too have naturally thin children who remain skinny no matter how much they eat. When I was that age, I too was so thin my mom took me to the doctor to see if something was wrong with me. There wasn’t I was just a really skinny kid. But as is usual in this social media age, “the squeaky wheel gets the grease.” We, in the media, often report on the minority with the negative or mean commentary and we help make a mountain out of a moe-hill. Just my observation as I have noticed it a lot in recent years since the advent and popularity of social media.

PEOPLE deletes its Post Highlighting Anti-Vaxxer Kristin Cavallari’s Baby Feeding Advice

Kristin Cavallari  I Only Feed My Baby  Real  Organic Ingredients    Great Ideas   People.com

MTVs Laguna Beach alum Kristin Cavallari is infamously known for deciding to not vaccinate her children out of fear that vaccines lead to autism. The TV host, shoe designer and new autobiographer recently released her new book “Balancing in Heels where she shares an inside look at her life balancing motherhood with life as a celebrity.

But it is the insight into her choice of baby formula that is causing alarm.

Cavallari, who is married to Chicago Bears veteran quarterback Jay JCutler, said in her book that her children are allergic to cow’s milk.  PEOPLE magazine did a write up on Cavallari’s book and highlighted the part where she shared that she fed her newborn baby goat’s milk/

Here is a cached grab of the article which upset many readers because the decision goes counter to what most doctors recommend for babies that young:

The comment section to the article was bombarded with responses by those echoing that pediatricians and other physicians recommend: that babies who are not breastfed be supplemented with iron rich cow’s milk-based formula; and that goat’s milk is actually dangerous to give a baby.

The outcry forced PEOPLE to take down the post, the Friendly Atheist blog reported.  To PEOPLE’s defense, a  cached version of the articles shows that it did include a quote from physicians.


It was a wise decision given the influencer status of Cavallari and the risk that other new mothers could possibly follow in her footsteps and do the same for their babies.

Condolences to the Cavallari family. The brother of Kristin Cavallari, Michael Cavallari, was found dead today three days after he went missing, E! News reports.

Press reports indicate that the body was found after Michael’s 2014 Honda Civic was discovered abandoned on I-70 in Utah.

Why ‘Gawker’ has Been Trolling Kristin Cavallari for 500 days 

Third-time mom-to-be Kristin Cavallari is actively promoting the imminent release of her first book “Balancing in Heels” while waiting to soon deliver her first daughter with husband, Chicago Bears quarterback, Jay Cutler.

On the caption to a recent Instagram post, the shoe designer, most famously known for her role on the cast of the heavily scripted MTV reality TV show The Hills, wrote:

“It’s hard to believe I will be a mom of 3 in just a few short weeks…I owe so much to my babies…they have changed me in so many ways for the better.” 

Cavallari, who has had bit acting parts in a few TV series (CSI:NY, The Middle and The League)and has been a TV host (The Fabulist),  first announced the book‘s release to E News back in January.

She revealed then that the book will also cover fashion, beauty, health, fitness and cooking.

Also since then, Gawker‘s “Defamer” blog has been trolling the pretty blond with its “500 Days of Kristin Cavallari” series.

Periodically, Gawker writer Allie Jones posts a little trollish tidbit about Cavallari counting down the days until the book is released.

We suspect it has to do with Cavallari’s controversial stance on vaccinations which she thinks causes autism.

It’s free publicity for her but something tells us that after the book is published, the trolling will continue into the context of the book.

Oh boy!


The snarky coverage hasn’t stopped the football wife from pushing her various projects.

Cavallari has also been promoting the Fall Fashion Campaign for her shoe imprint with Chinese Laundry.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight this month promoting the new season’s fashion, the Laguna Beach alum admitted that having three children scares her but that she is excited about having a baby girl.

She said she is already getting the nursery ready and “getting all the pink and purple clothes.”

Fun! Keep on, keeping on, Kristin!
