So when the model recently shared a pic of herself breastfeeding Chanel, fans had a mix reaction to say the least.

Her post read: "At a time when the world feels like its coming to an end.. suck up as much love as you can! I know the moms out there will appreciate this pic! Ive been getting alot of props in the breasfeeding community and get tons of emails from woman/moms appreciating me bringing light to the subject .. I write a baby blog about my journey with Chanel and soon I will write about what it's like to continue boob time with a 4 year old.."

"I get tons and tons of requests that want me to speak on it! At this point in nursing its just for comfort and believe me the girl loves meat so its not like she isnt eating real food...Thank you to all that understand my view.. i see most of you are so eager to side with me and I too root for you in your journey as well.. Us moms are connected," she concluded.

Still, some fans didn't agree with Coco's decision and had no issues sharing those thoughts in her comments:

However, many fans defended Coco's choice!

"People need to be educated BUT even if they aren’t it’s none of their business regardless. That’s between you and her. My son is about to be 4 in a couple weeks and I have a 2.5 year old...both are still nursed," expressed one fan.

"There's nothing wrong for women to breast-feed their babies because boobs are scientifically for feeding babies," wrote another.

Props to Coco for doing what she feels is best for her family!
