A mother is making headlines after posting photos of herself breastfeeding her 6-year-old daughter on Facebook.

Maha Al Musa, 52, of Australia, regularly breastfeeds her daughter Aminah, because she believes in the power of mother’s milk.

Musa, who lives in Byron Bay, New South Wales,
prides herself in breastfeeding her 6-year-old daughter on demand.

She said that she will feed her daughter in the school playground if her daughter asks for milk.

Musa was photographed on Monday, cradling Aminah while she was being nursed in a park in her uniform.

Aminah normally breastfeeds before going to bed, but Musa said she feeds her daughter whenever and wherever she wants as she is only responding to her natural desire.

Musa, who is a mother of three children and living on a strict Paleo diet, said that she enjoys the bonding time with her daughter.

She believes that a mother and child should decide what is best for themselves and the family circumstances. She also said that “4 to 8 years old is the right age for self weaning.”
