Having made her name as part of the Kardashian family on E!’s hit show Keeping Up With the Kardashians, eldest sister Kourtney Kardashian, 30, is facing a new reality: motherhood!

After delivering son Mason Dash on Dec. 14th, Kourtney and boyfriend Scott Disick have tackled parenthood head-on — and in full view of television cameras.

Currently filming the second season of Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami in Florida, Kourtney answered Celebrity Baby Blog readers’ questions via e-mail.

CBB: Many of our readers appreciated your honesty about the initial ambivalence you felt towards pregnancy, and you’ve continued to be open – for example, speaking out about your postpartum figure being airbrushed away on a magazine cover. Why is it important to you to speak your mind about issues others may consider too personal?

Kourtney Kardashian: I feel that if I’m going through something, I’m sure someone else is too. I try to be as honest with myself and others as I can be. If my situation can help anyone else, that’s even more of a reason.

A large percentage of CBB commenters think baby Mason looks just like your brother Rob! Whose features do you see in him?

So many people say he looks just like Rob and my Dad! I think he takes after my side of the family, but he definitely has Scott’s exact chin and ears. He looks like Mason to me. I stare at him all day.

Is Mason hitting any milestones yet?

Yes! He’s smiling all the time … it’s one of my favorite things. He rolled over at two weeks!

Can you walk us through your daily routine now that you have a baby? Do you have a nanny or family help?

Every day is different. I always wake up before him, get breakfast started, get his outfit laid out, bath ready. We always have playtime, storytime and bathtime every day.

I don’t have a nanny at this time … I bring Mason with me everywhere. I made a decision to really spend as much time with him as possible. Not make lots of plans … just focus on Mason. The couple of times he hasn’t been with Scott or me, he’s with my mom or sisters.

For many moms, nursing can be both a frustrating and rewarding experience. How has it been for you?

Breastfeeding has been going very well! I love and appreciate the bonding time with Mason. Nursing is surprisingly one of my favorite things.

What has been the hardest part of becoming a parent?

I would say the biggest adjustment for me is finding time to do it all. Mason is my absolute first priority, so everything else has to wait. Finding time for working out, work, a manicure, going to the dentist … anything really, was an adjustment.

What are some of your favorite baby products?

I love the Bloom Fresco high chair and Coco Plexistyle lounger. They look like they’re straight out of The Jetsons, very modern and fun! I love Mason’s Netto Collection crib, changer and dresser … white lacquer and espresso wood — perfection! I love his Monte Design white leather glider. It’s comfortable and chic. Kicky Pants is one of my favorite brands for him so far … it’s beyond soft. He lives in it!

Can you tell us about the Belly Bandit? Do you find it works for you?

Yes! All of my friends who have children told me I had to get it. It was so cool to have the opportunity to design my own. I totally found that it helped my stomach tighten. It also helped tremendously with back support.

You had such great pregnancy style — would you ever consider doing a maternity clothing line?

I would love to design a maternity clothing line. It is so hard to find stylish clothes for pregnant people … I would say 99 percent of the clothes I wore were not maternity because I couldn’t find anything I liked.

Now that Mason has arrived, do you want him to be a part of the family reality show, or keep his life more private?

I would love to keep his life more private, but it’s hard when he’s always with me. I would rather him always be with me.

Lola on

I love Kourtney she seems to be perfectly adjusted to motherhood, thanks for the great interview CBB!!

alice jane on

I love this! I really like Kourtney, and with her tight-knit family, Mason must be growing up with a lot of love. So far motherhood seems to really fit well with her, it’s nice to see.

Lacey on

Mason is one lucky guy to have such a wonderful, devoted mother and one close family.

I heard about the Bella Band on the Pregtastic pregnany podcast. Its suppposed to be really cool. I didnt know it was so pretty. I wonder, though, if it comes (black lacey thing) in darker (skinned) background colors.

celebsarah on

What a refreshing interview with a real mom! She sounds like she is loving being Mason’s mommy. I do raise my eyebrows at her saying he rolled over at 2 weeks old though. Maybe she’s not meaning to exaggerate, but that’s pretty unbelievable. Anyway, great article CBB. Thanks for sharing with us, Kourtney!

Mason is so cute!! I am not a big fan of Scott, but I love how Kourt is always so calm and relaxed! I also LOVED that she was so natural when she gave birth!

I also love the Kardashian hair!! lol I want it that thick and shinny!

Something About Baby on

Mason is such a cutie and Kourtney seems to love being a mommy. Looking forward to watching him grow up on TV.

Katie on

She sounds so sweet and devoted! Go Kourt go!

Luna on

That was just the sweetest interview in the world. She seems to love him so much. I love to hear first time mothers express the overwhelming joy they feel about their baby. Mason is such an adorable butterball in all the photos we’ve seen of him. However, can a baby roll over at TWO WEEKS? Is that just unusual not unheard of? Great interview CBB.

Kat on

I totally get what she’s saying in regards to the show… because I remember kendall and kylie not being on it much at all when they were 12 and 13… it’s only been during select episodes (like them getting a puppy and the disagreement between the parents over it) or when Mason was born (and then it was kind of shocking to see how much older they looked) that we really saw them.

I expect Mason won’t be shown on tv as much once he’s older and going to preschool, if the show is still on then.

I really do love hearing from her… and I know so many say he looks like her brother, but all I see when I look at him is her dad (though I see what she means about the ears and chin).

Erica on

XOXO12, Kim and Kourtney definitely wear extensions to lengthen/thicken their hair (I’m not as sure about Khloe). But I absolutely agree with everyone else, Mason is a doll and he’s fortunate to have been born in such a close-knit family.

GekkoMom on

Celebsarah my nephew rolled over at 2 weeks. I would not have believed it if I hadn’t seen it with my own eyes. You could tell it wasn’t an intentional roll like with an older baby. He just got over onto his side and then he was on his tummy, this was on a bed too.

m-dot on

Great interview!

terra on

My oldest niece rolled over at 2 weeks as well. It’s not common, but it does happen.

lulu on

Beautiful family! My son rolled over in his first couple weeks of life as well…he’s 16 months now and hasn’t stopped moving since!

elizabeth on

I applaud Kourtney for the facxt that she is working so hard at finding balance in her life.I really haven’t been a fan of Scott’s but I have to say,it looks like he is working hard at changing…he is growing up!!! Mason is a lovely wee one and is very Blessed by having both Kourtney and Scott as his parents,I wish them all the best!

Liz on

To celebsarah & Luna:

It’s not impossible for a baby to roll over at two weeks. My son did it too, and he walked at one week before he turned 9 months. He did everything very early, so, while very uncommon, it is not impossible to do so.

Alvazar on

Mason is such a cutie and so sweet! very nice!

Shannon on

Go Kourt! Yay for nursing and being proud of it. I love hearing about celebs who are sharing their mommy experiences and choosing breastfeeding.

India on

Put some socks on that poor baby! His feet are uncovered and PURPLE! Brrrrr!

Gayle Clarke on

It’s nice to see a young busy successful woman put her child first. I’ve always said, “No one can take care of my children better than me”. I see Courtney may also beleive that too. Keep up the good example Courtney, You’ll be paid back with a wonderful family relationship with your son.

Carol on

Love these pics, especially the one of the Family…
You and Scott have created a beautiiful lil boy…
Focus on them and not the TRASH everyone talks about your man/babydaddy….

lena on
