According to the NYPost Wednesday, 51 year old mother of three plans to breastfeed until she is 57 and her daughter is 10.
Maha Al Musa has been nursing her five year old daughter since birth. 'Aminah took to breastfeeding easily and the moment I felt that bond, I was instantly hooked,' Al Musa said about her five year old daughter. 'I believe it will help boost her immune system. To this day, she is rarely ill and her temperament is calmer and more relaxed than other children.'
Extended breastfeeding has been gaining in popularity ever since Jamie Lynne Grumet posed on the front of the May 2012 Time magazine with her four year old son standing on a chair while breastfeeding. Extended breastfeeding is where the child is only weaned off human milk when they decide its time to stop. An increasing number of moms are citing benefits to kids' health and well-being.
Modal TriggerAl Musa, who breastfed Aminah's brothers, Kailash 16, and Tariq 13, until they were two, says she doesn't care what anyone else thinks.
