Mum still breastfeeds her five year old

A mum breastfeeds her five-year-old daughter three times a day.

The mum-of-two, Miira Dawson, is still breastfeeding Tara, despite the youngster attending primary school, and often kicks her husband out of their bed so she can have feeding sessions with the children.

The mother from Poole in Dorset, also believes she is raising her child's IQ and wants like to "carry on until she is ten".

The 36 year old said: "I would carry on until she is ten.

"I think it is a lovely thing for a baby to grow up and remember being breast fed, as not many people would be able to say this - plus there are all the health and IQ benefits."

She continued to tell Liverpool student newspaper The Tab: "Most people ask me when I am planning on stopping but I don't have any pressure from my husband."
