That’s something I never thought I’ll hear but a woman wants to breastfeed her daughter until she turns ten.
I’m trying not to be judgmental, but I can see your face right now asking “what in the world?”.
Let’s give this story go.
Some people quit breastfeeding before they even start the process. Others, enjoy it because that’s something provided by God and nature.
Usually, a woman breastfeeds her baby for a year or maybe a year and a half.
Not this lady.
A 36-year-old mother from England wants to breastfeed her daughter until she turns 10.
This is Miira Dawson and daughter’s name is Tara. According to her, there are many reasons for her to continue what she does.
One of them is increasing Tara’s IQ.
I think it is a lovely thing for a baby to grow up and remember being breastfed, as not many people would be able to say this — plus, there are all the health and IQ benefits.
Wait, it gets better.
Even though you think that this is the only child in the world that will drink mother’s milk for a long time, there is another turn.
Miira breastfeeds her other kid, as well.
The boy you see in the picture is Miira’s two-year-old son. She nurses both of them three times a day.
I don’t think other moms are bothered really. It’s none of their business, but they may raise their eyebrows.
They sleep together
The mother sleeps with both of her kids. She is in the middle while one of the kids sleep on the left and the other on the right side.
The husband sleeps separately for health reasons.
Plus, Miira says that she doesn’t want to let her kids wake up alone and scared.
What about her husband?
Jim has no problem with it. He is going to let her do the breastfeeding for now. However, the idea of him sleeping alone is not something he admires.
He feels left out without the possibility of reading his kids’ bedtime stories or spend more time with them.
For now, I will excuse myself of personal opinions about this topic.
I just want to let you see what experts think about it.
It’s very rare to find someone who is still naturally feeding a child of six years. But there is absolutely no evidence that there is anything wrong, so why would mothers stop if it works for them. – Dr. Maria Iacovou, a sociologist at the University of Cambridge
