A sweet breastfeeding photo has sparked major debate on social media.
Coco Austin, the model and reality star married to rapper and Law & Order: SVU actor Ice-T, shared a photo of their nearly 3 year old daughter, Chanel, blissfully dozing away on her semi-exposed chest.
Coco shared that she is still breastfeeding the toddler — “but it’s more for comfort now.”
While many fans were touched by the intimate image, praising the “beautiful bond” of nursing, others suggested that Chanel, who turns three in November, is too old to be breastfed. Some, of course, even made sexual gibes about Coco’s breasts.
Thankfully the positive comments outweighed the ridiculous ones.
The image captioned: “I follow some mother impowering pages here on Instagram and I love the inspiring pics they post showing the tenderness and love between a mother and child with or without nursing moments.. I love that I can be a part of that.
@babychanelnicole has made me a more sensitive person now that I’m older.”
We have shared before a story from Milk Meg about how she comfort fed her baby nephew to help him settle – read more on that here.
