Ice-T has some choice words for critics after his wife Coco Austin was dragged for continuing to breastfeed their almost-four-year-old daughter.
After posting a picture of herself breastfeeding their daughter Chanel for comfort on Instagram, Coco was slammed by fans who stated that the continuance of the for infant practice would “scar their daughter”. Coco, however, stated in her caption that she feels breastfeeding is their “bonding time” and “will be sad” when Chanel decides to give up the boob.
“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 ..Its more of a comfort thing now and of course she eats regular but nap time and night time are our time and I’m lucky she hasn’t grown out it yet because when that moment comes I will be so sad..its the best feeling and ALL mothers that nurse know.”
Ice-T responded to critics slamming his wife stating that their daughter does eat regular meals and that the breastfeeding only occurs “every once and a while.”
During an interview with TMZ, Ice-T said that critics were taking things way too far by insinuating that Coco only breastfeeds their daughter when she actually eats meals regularly.
“They make it like the baby only breastfeeds,” Ice-T said. “Every once in a while, you know what I’m saying, she wants to get close to her mom, that’s what they do. She eats food, she eats f*cking cheeseburgers.”
