Mom Breastfeeds 5-Year-Old Daughter Because She Thinks Her Milk Is Medicine

Emma Shardlow Hudson, a 29-year-old mother, breastfeeds her 5-year-old daughter Alex and 2-year-old son Ollie. She breastfeeds Alex before and after school every day, claiming that her breast milk has helped prevent her children from getting sick.

Alex usually breastfeeds once in the morning and once in the evening, and Emma believes that the antibodies in her milk contribute to her children’s overall health. While some may find extended breastfeeding unconventional, Emma sees it as a positive and nurturing choice for her children’s well-being. She views breastfeeding as a selfless act and believes it has played a role in her kids rarely falling ill.
