Whitney Port recently got candid about her struggles as a first-time mom.

On Thursday, Port opened up about the not-so-amazing aspects of motherhood in a new video posted on her YouTube channel. In the clip, the TV personality broke down in tears as she talked about the difficulty and pain she experienced while breastfeeding her son, Sonny, whom she shares with husband Tim Rosenman. "I'm not obsessed with breastfeeding," she wrote in the caption of the video.

"There. I said it. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the fact that my baby is getting all the amazing nutrients from my milk and that I am literally giving him life, but it has been quite the challenge. A challenge I didn't feel prepared for at all," she said.

To ease her breastfeeding struggles, Port said she is now feeding Sonny formula as a temporary solution, E! News noted. She also visited a lactation consultant, who suggested that her baby might be tongue-tied, while a pediatrician informed that her baby's case was a bad one.

When asked if everything has worked out, Port broke down in tears. Port admitted that she was tired and desperate to breastfeed her baby. "I think I'm just tired," she confessed. "And I obviously want to breastfeed. I don't know [why]. I honestly think it's, I guess because that's what people say, like, is the best bonding experience."

When asked if she was pressured into breastfeeding, Port admitted that she was. "I've been getting pressure from more older people that want me to try it and continue to try it," she said. "I just don't know if it's something that is going to get better or not, so that's why I feel anxious about it. Like, how much longer do I continue to try it before I just give up on it and just pump and give him the bottles and be OK with it?"

Port admitted that for her, breastfeeding is a dreadful experience. For mothers who are going through the same struggle, she encouraged them not to listen to anyone and to only follow their heart, before adding that she has to follow her own advice.

Despite her struggles with breastfeeding, Port has been excited about being a mother and adores her son. On July 31, Port announced the arrival of her baby through a sweet message posted on her website. "So, I have some news. No big deal, but I created another human being and then delivered him into the world at 12:30 am Thursday morning. Timmy and I named the little man Sonny and I'm in love," she wrote.
