“Chanel still likes my boobs,” Coco shared with Us Weekly. “It’s a big bonding moment for a mother and your child.”

Coco added that Chanel does “eat steak and hamburgers,” but she still “likes a little snack every now and then.”

“Why take that away from her?” Coco continued. “If she doesn’t want it, all right, that’s where you stop it. But I’m not just going to say no.”

This isn’t the first time Coco has talked about continuing to breastfeed Chanel.

Early last year, Coco talked about it on Instagram, writing, “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 💗”
