Mom Says She’ll Breastfeed 6-Year-Old As Long As Child Wants
[su_right_ad]Denise Sumpter of the UK is still breastfeeding daughter Belle, age 6, and says she’ll do so until the daughter asks her to stop.
The Year Two pupil will ask for a feed if she is tired, ill or simply wants some bonding time with her mum.
She might ask a couple of times a day, or maybe just once or twice a week.
Sometimes she feeds on her own, and other times she latches on alongside 18-month-old brother Beau.
And Denise, 44, insists she will continue until Belle decides it is time to stop.
“I’ll feed Belle as long as she asks,” she says. “I don’t know how long that will be. It will be the same with Beau. I don’t think there’s anything weird about it.[su_csky_ad]
