“At a time when the world feels like its [sic] coming to an end.. suck up as much love as you can!” Austin, 40, wrote, a not-so-subtle nod to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. I know the moms out there will appreciate this pic!” she continued.

Some commented that it was “a little weird at 4 years old,” while other followers thanked her for “normalising feeding toddlers.”
Austin went on to say that she currently breastfeeds her daughter “just for comfort and believe me the girl loves meat so its not like she isn’t eating real food. “Thank you to all that understand my view,” she continued. “I see most of you are so eager to side with me and I too root for you in your journey as well..

Several Instagram users questioned Austin about the act, with one wondering if she often gets dirty looks from others when doing so. “No because I don’t do it in their face,” Austin replied.
Austin is definitely known for being a confident mum and isn’t shy to say it how it is. Last October, she defended herself after fans bagged her for posting a set of sexy shots on Instagram.
“I hate seeing comments that say you cant be sexy after having children.. who says?” she asked.
“And yes,I dont have has much time as I used too before Chanel but I can still pick my moments .. I will always and forever be Coco.. no matter what, I still rock as a wife and a mother!!! 💋💋💋 You hear me?”
We hear you Coco…loud and clear!
