Coco Austin reveals she still breastfeeds her 4-year-old daughter, hits back at critics who find it 'weird'
Coco Austin's four-year-old daughter Chanel is still being breastfed by her mother, who claims that it brings comfort to her child. She shared a picture of feeding her daughter on her Instagram and captioned the picture, "At a time when the world feels like its coming to an end… suck up as much love as you can."
She added, "I know the moms out there will appreciate this pic! I’ve been getting a lot of props in the breastfeeding community and get tons of emails from women/moms appreciating me bringing light to the subject. (sic)"
Austin also explained, "At this point in nursing it’s just for comfort and believe me the girl loves meat so its not like she isn’t eating real food…Thank you to all that understand my view... I see most of you are so eager to side with me and I too root for you in your journey as well… Us moms are connected. (sic)"
Speaking about breastfeeding her child, Austin, who shares Chanel with husband Ice-T, had posted more pictures in the past which she captioned, "I’m so blessed to have this unbelievable experience in this thing called nursing," and added, "I had a hard time the first week when Chanel was born. I almost gave up, but my family told me to hang for another week. They told me I (wouldn’t) want to miss this special moment you have with your child health-wise and bond-wise."
Austin had further explained, “I hung in there and now almost four years later, Chanel still wants the boob. It’s more of a comfort thing now and of course, she eats regular, but naptime and nighttime are our times, and I’m lucky she hasn’t grown out (of) it yet because when that moment comes, I will be so sad. It’s the best feeling and ALL mothers that nurse know."
