Those of us who have sisters know, nobody knows us like they do. Sharing the experience of motherhood with a sister can bring siblings even closer—as seems to be the case with 20-year-old new mama Kylie Jenner and her older sister, 37-year-old mom of three, Kim Kardashian West.


Kardashian recently interviewed Jenner for the UK's Evening Standard, asking questions she probably already knew the answers to, but offering perspective on how their famous family's dynamic has shifted since the recent baby boom.

Kardashian's youngest, Chicago, was born via surrogate in January and Jenner's first, Stormi, came in February. Their sister Khloé, welcomed her first, daughter True, in March.

"I think recently you have become closer to all the sisters, especially me and Khloé, because we were all expecting at the same time," Kim tells Kylie.

"It's crazy how fast they grow, because Chi [pronounced 'shy'] is just, like, two weeks older, but you can tell she's a little bit more advanced. And then, right when Stormi hits two weeks, she's doing the same things Chi was doing," Jenner replies.

The youngest sister says the cousins will no doubt grow up to be BFFs, but they may not be cast mates. Jenner has not yet decided whether she will allow Stormi to appear to the family's long-running reality series, Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

"I have thought about it but I haven't come to a conclusion yet," she tells her sister, admitting that she sometimes daydreams about what life would be like without the show, but that the benefits outweigh the drawbacks.

Those benefits—fame, fortune, a cosmetics empire at 20 years old—mean Jenner's life is very different from most young mamas', but there's one thing about her motherhood experience that is so relatable.

"I think about her all the time, anywhere I am. I would rather be with her or wish she can come everywhere," she says. " I think more about the future because of her. Every time I leave and I'm stressed about leaving her, I'm like, 'I'm doing it for you.'"

Raised on reality television, this mama isn't afraid of the very real side of motherhood, and says the hands-on parts of parenting aren't so bad when you're dealing with your own baby. "I actually enjoy changing diapers. It's really satisfying. To make her clean again. And I don't know, the whole thing is really… it's like such an amazing experience," Kylie tells Kim.

The sisters agree, and so do we: Motherhood alters everything, including how we see our own family, and even, how we see diapers.

They say necessity is the mother of invention—and nothing makes you more inventive than motherhood.

Sometimes that means fashioning a diaper out of paper towels and your older child's underpants (true story). Sometimes that means creating an innovative and life-changing weighted baby sleep sack and totally crushing it on Shark Tank. Tara Williams is the latter.

This incredibly soft comforter from Sunday Citizen is like sleeping on a cloud

My only complaint? I've slept through my alarm twice.

When it comes to getting a good night's sleep, there are many factors that, as a mama, are hard to control. Who's going to wet the bed at 3 am, how many times a small person is going to need a sip of water, or the volume of your partner's snoring are total wildcards.

One thing you can control? Tricking out your bed to make it as downright cozy as possible. (And in these times, is there anywhere you want to be than your bed like 75% of the time?)

I've always been a down comforter sort of girl, but after a week of testing the ridiculously plush and aptly named Snug Comforter from Sunday Citizen, a brand that's run by "curators of soft, seekers of chill" who "believe in comfort over everything," it's safe to say I've been converted.

Two weeks. I cannot believe that it has been two weeks since my second son was brought into this world. Two weeks since my husband and I welcomed baby Simon, the final piece of our little family.

But, here is the whopper: It has been two weeks since I have been the mom of a toddler and a newborn. I am now responsible for taking care of two tiny humans.

It absolutely blows my mind how much my life has changed in the last two weeks. It's definitely not all rainbows and unicorns around here, but things are going pretty well. This is me being cautiously optimistic.

What I have done is learned a lot about myself, my kids and my new life in the last two weeks.
