Coco Austin has revealed that she is still breastfeeding her four-year-old daughter. The glamour model, 40, took to Instagram to share a picture of herself nursing Chanel, who she shares with her rapper husband Ice-T.
She said Chanel only has what she calls “boob time” for comfort and is eating proper meals but will be weaned when she feels ready.
Coco, whose real name is Nicole Natalie Marrow, posted the picture to support other mums who are continuing to breastfeed their kids past the baby stage.
“At a time when the world feels like its coming to an end.. suck up as much love as you can!” she said in an apparent reference to the growing panic about coronavirus.
“I know the moms out there will appreciate this pic! Ive been getting alot of props in the breasfeeding community and get tons of emails from woman/moms appreciating me bringing light to the subject
“I write a baby blog about my journey with Chanel and soon I will write about what it’s like to continue boob time with a 4 year old [sic].”
Coco insisted it was Chanel’s choice to continue breastfeeding and she has a healthy diet.
The mum-of-one went on: “I get tons and tons of requests that want me to speak on it! At this point in nursing its just for comfort and believe me the girl loves meat so its not like she isnt 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].”
