Why I still breastfeed my eight-year-old girl

A Penrith mum has appeared on national TV to explain why she is still breastfeeding her daughter who is nearly eight – and why she gave her older daughter breast milk as a ninth birthday present.

Veronika Robinson appeared on the Channel 4 programme Extraordinary Breastfeeding as a passionate advocate of allowing children to decided when they give up breast milk.

“I can’t believe any mother wouldn’t love to hold onto that wonderful feeling you get when you are nursing your own child.”
