Kourtney Kardashian isn't afraid to get candid about her health or her post-baby body, and one of her latest Instagram posts is proof.

The Kardashians star and Poosh founder shared a snap to her Instagram Story on April 10, in which she revealed that she drank an entire glass of her own breast milk. "I just pounded a glass of my breast milk because I feel sick. Goodnight!" she wrote over a filtered selfie.

While breast milk can be considered a topical remedy to conditions like eczema and dermatitis, it's effect on sickness isn't very clear, with the National Institute of Health stating back in 2015 that "no scientific study has evidenced that direct adult consumption of human milk for medicinal properties offers anything more than a placebo effect." So, maybe try her latest sickness remedy at your own risk.

Kardashian, who recently gave birth to her and husband Travis Barker's son, Rocky, in November, recently gave new mothers a boost of confidence about their post-partum bodies while vacationing in Turks and Caicos with her family.

“Dear new mommies,” she wrote in a April 8 Instagram Story. “Your body is beautiful at all stages. During pregnancy as we are glowing and growing, postpartum as we are healing and shrinking, and then that period I find the hardest, as our bodies are still adjusting. And if you're breastfeeding, that's a whole other part of it."

"The pressure put on us to bounce back when everything is new and different isn’t realistic,” she added. "Life is beautiful. You are beautiful. Just a little reminder (for me too).”
