Coco Austin hasn’t been shy about discussing one of the most common but often-debated topics of new motherhood: breastfeeding, from its benefits to helping her stay in shape to the hardships no one tells you about.
And in a new clip for E! News, the 37-year-old actress and model talks about the most recent challenge of breastfeeding 6-month-old daughter Chanel Nicole.
“I’m kind of obsessed with [breastfeeding],” she says. “[Chanel] is 6 months now, but for a good five months, she was great at breastfeeding. Just recently she got a little congested and, since then, it was hard for her to drink from my boob so I had to force the bottle in her mouth.”
She continues, “Now that it’s cleared up, she wants the bottle more, and it hurt my feelings … I’m doing whatever I can because now, she’s growing, so she needs more milk … so I have to go from breastfeeding to formula, breastfeeding to formula, but I wish she would want a little more of me.”
