Mother Reveals Why She Is Still Breastfeeding Her 9-Year-Old Daughter

As weird and strange as it may sound, to this mother, breastfeeding her 9-year-old daughter is right and even has some health benefits.

The British mother revealed how she will miss breastfeeding her daughter after the youngster finally weaned at age 9.

Sharon Spink, who is a mother of four, insisted that feeding daughter Charlotte until earlier the age of nine was completely normal and has cemented a lifelong bond between the pair.

Spink, who supports natural term weaning, claims Charlotte is healthy and rarely ill, thanks to the beneficial properties of breast milk.

And despite facing a backlash from critics who have accused her of child abuse, Sharon, 50, wants to break down the stigma around breastfeeding older children – believing there are many mothers out there who are doing it. She said;

“When I came to have Charlotte, I had decided on natural term weaning. It’s nice for the child to be in control of when they want to wean, rather than forcing the issue.”

“She naturally self-weaned earlier this year. It was a gradual process and her choice. She was feeding about once a month if she wasn’t feeling great or was feeling a bit run down and was going longer and longer without feeding.

“Now she hasn’t done it for about two months. She told me she would stop when she was 10 which will be in April next year but it seems to have come to a natural end earlier, although I would have allowed her to continue for as long as she wants to.”
