A belly dancer mum is going viral after making some bizarre claims regarding breastfeeding.
Yes, Maha Al Musa made heads turn when she publicly announced how she would like to continue breastfeeding her daughter till the age of 10 years. At the same time, the mother of 3 from New South Wales in Australia claims she was instantly hooked to the bond. And for that reason, if her child wants her to breastfeed till age 10, she will continue.
Maha explains how she breastfed her other two kids till the age of 2. However, the bond she feels with her 5-year-old daughter is incomparable to anything else. For that reason, she’s willing to continue till the age of 10.
Belly dancer mum opts for extended feeding
Maha Al Musa explains how her 5-year-old daughter, Aminah, still takes her mother’s milk.
Moreover, the belly dancer mum expressed how her youngest child became adjusted to breastmilk so easily.And instantly, her mom felt a special bond or connection that wasn’t there with her two elder kids.
‘I was instantly hooked,’ claims Maha in an excited tone. But if you’re wondering why, well, the mother of 3 says that after her 3rd child, she felt blessed while breastfeeding. And for that reason, she wishes to continue for as long as her child desires.
On the contrary, the 51-year-old belly dancer mum also explained how she only breastfed her elder kids till they were 2. After that, they continued taking formula milk.
51 year old still breastfeeds in public
Unbelievingly, Maha says that she feels no remorse in feeding her 5-year-old in public. Whenever Aminah asks for milk, Maha is ready and willing to supply it in public too.
However, what has people’s eyes popping isn’t the fact that a 51-year-old is flashing her flesh. Moreover, it relates to the mere fact that she feeds a daughter who is 5. Yes, the mother of 3 confirms how people raise eyebrows from across the board.
Today, the Australian mum is a belly dancer who practices long and tiring routines for extended periods of time. However, she never lets that come in between her extensive breastfeeding sessions. Also, the fact that she allows her child to continue for as long as she desires milk is commendable for someone her age.
‘I couldn’t care less about what critics think’
If you think all the stares and eyebrow-raising makes any difference to this belly dancer mum of 3, you just might need to think again.
‘I couldn’t care less about what critics think about me,’ says Maha.Moreover, she sat down in a recent interview to talk about what really gives her that motivation, or should we say, inspiration.
Maha expresses how she likes to follow in the footsteps of famed breastfeeder, Jamie Lynne Grumet. Yes, she’s the bold mother from Los Angeles who shocked plenty with her breastfeeding stance.
Lynne posed for Time magazine’s cover with her 4-year-old, who features alongside her, suckling on her bare breast. While Grumet announced that she would continue to nurse her 4-year old till one more year, Maha has no intention of doing so.
She explained how she was willing to continue till 10 if her daughter wants.
Mum explains how her milk boosts her child’s immunity
‘I believe my milk helps to boost my daughter’s immunity. Till today, she hardly falls ill,’ expressed Maha. At the same time, she attributed her daughter’s calm and relaxed temperament to her milk.
On the other hand, Maha only weaned her two elder children off her breast milk, till they were 2. Now, they’re 16 and 13.
Maha concluded by explaining how she feels the need to defend her actions regarding breastfeeding in public. For her, it’s not a taboo and a personal decision that people should respect.
