Coco Austin,40, is enjoying her motherhood and time with her little one.
Mother of one shared a candid Instagram post about how 3½-year-old Chanel Nicole still breastfeeds, but mostly out of “comfort” now. The image shows she is nursing the little girl on a private plane.
“A mothers calling … I’m so blessed to have this unbelievable experience in this thing called Nursing,” Austin wrote. “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 don’t want to miss this special moment you have with your child … health-wise and bond wise” continued the model and reality star. “I hung in there and now almost 4 years later Chanel still wants the boob.”
Austin went on to say that the practice is “more of a comfort thing now and of course she eats regular but nap time and night time are our time.”
“I’m lucky she hasn’t grown out [of] it yet because when that moment comes I will be so sad,” she admitted. “Its the best feeling and ALL mothers that nurse know.”
The star then directed followers to her blog if they wanted to read more, concluding her caption with the hashtag, “#normalizebreastfeeding.”
Austin said she cherishes the experience of breastfeeding her daughter, the daughter she shares with husband Ice-T.
The former Ice Loves Coco star shared in May 2018, “I follow some mother [empowering] 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.”
Austin shared in March 2017 that her child was still nursing at 15 months, explaining, “The main question I get from women is if I still breastfeed and the answer is yes. She’s 15 months and still going strong.”
She said, “I’m doing whatever I can because now, she’s growing, so she needs more milk … so I have to go from breastfeeding to formula, breastfeeding to formula, but I wish she would want a little more of me,” she said at the time, adding that she still pumped “every single day” to provide breast milk for Chanel, even though it was often through a bottle.
“That first week, my nipples were bleeding and scabbing over. I was like, ‘No one tells you that your nipples bleed!” she said in March of that year.
