Reactions were mixed with some people chastising Coco for her choice, but most people either praised her for being so open or had their own questions about breastfeeding past infancy.

It isn’t the first time Coco has shared her experiences with breastfeeding. Around 6 months ago she posted another shot of her feeding Chanel while admitting she struggled at first.
