Mum breastfeeds 5-year-old son naked in the bath and says there’s nothing wrong with it


Stay-at-home mum, Amy Hardcastle, has been breastfeeding her five-year-old son since he was born. The 27-year-old from Lancashire, UK, wants to show people that it’s normal for a child to breastfeed for as long as possible. She nurses her son while naked in the bath and says nursing an older child is easier as she can explain how to feed directly.

She is encouraging more mothers to feel comfortable nursing their children, regardless of the child’s age, as she happily breastfeeds her son Max on a regular basis. Amy hopes to break the stigma on extended breastfeeding and show critics that it’s completely natural, good for the child and encourages closeness.

Do you agree with her?
