Coco Austin, 40, the wife of Ice-T, 61, shared another photo of her breastfeeding their daughter Chanel who is 4 years old.
In her caption, she shares that “at this point in nursing it’s just for comfort.”
The photo and caption have sparked a huge debate on the appropriateness of still breastfeeding a child at 4 years old. The kicker? Coco shared a similar set of photos back in September, starting a similar online debate.
Along with the pictures, Austin shared this message:
“A mothers calling… I’m so blessed to have this unbelievable experience in this thing called Nursing.. .I had a hard time breastfeeding the 1st week of when Chanel was born, I almost gave up but my family told me to hang for another week. They told me I dont want to miss this special moment you have with your child.. health wise and bond wise…I hung in there and now almost 4 years later Chanel still wants the boob.”
Coco has lost it. Breastfeeding a 4 year old?! ?

Ugh!! I won’t ever knock breastfeeding but this child is way too old for the breast!! I think Coco is the one who needs the comforting.

The rapper-turned-actor and model have been married since 2005 and toddler Chanel is the only child the two share. The “Law and Order: SVU” veteran has two other children from previous relationships.
TELL US- Fair or Foul: How long should a mother nurse and should Coco keep defending her choice?
