“Every once in a while, you know what I’m saying, she wants to get close to her mom, that’s what they do,” Ice T told TMZ on Wednesday after he was asked about the situation. (RELATED: Ice-T Calls Out Amazon, ‘Almost Shot’ A Delivery Driver)

Coco opened up about her struggles with breastfeeding in the Instagram post over the weekend. She called it an “unbelievable experience” after she originally had a hard time breastfeeding.
“I almost gave up but my family told me to hang in for another week,” Coco captioned the photo. “They told me I dont [sic] 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.”
She instantly received backlash over the age of her breastfeeding daughter.
“Coco she’s too big for breastfeeding. Give her real milk,” a user commented.
“Oh no after a certain age that’s a no bueno,” another added.
