This Morning viewers divided by woman who breastfeeds her FIVE-year-old

This Morning viewers divided by woman who breastfeeds her FIVE-year-old”

In addition, she said, the process "anchors" her and makes her feel closer to her children, but while some watching at home commended her approach, others said the children were too old to be nursing, branding it "gross".

Sophie Mei Lan, whose daughters are 5 and 2, also said that breastfeeding helps manager her depression.

The blogger and vlogger revealed she and husband Chris sleep in different beds so that she can feed Jasmine, five, and Ariana, two, in the night if needed. Sophie admitted she has had mental health problems in the past and that breastfeeding is something that keeps her "anchored" so she can spend quality time with her children.

"It's caused a bit of friction in my relationship".

Sophie Mei Lan, 29, from Wakefield, who is mother to Jasmine, five, and Ariana, two, revealed during an appearance on ITV's This Morning on Thursday that she "tandem" breastfeeds both of her daughters at the same time. I think it's weirder we drink cows breast milk instead of our own'.

Miss Lan, of Wakefield, said that people do stare at her when she feeds Jasmine in public.

'From the start of my breastfeeding people would ask when I'd stop, ' she explained. "As mammals, we feed from five to seven years old until they get their molars and can't latch on".

However, husband Chris told the presenters that the children are able to go to sleep on their own, without being breastfed, which sparked speculation among viewers that Sophie was continuing to feed because she personally wanted to, rather than for parenting reasons - a theory the couple swiftly dismissed.

"Jasmine started school a year ago and I told her not many kids in her class would be feeding, but she's not bothered".

After the segment aired, Twitter exploded with cruel comments. "They're at school?" wrote one person.

"I actually can't deal with the thought of breastfeeding a FIVE YEAR OLD. wtf?!"

Others rushed to Mei Lan's defense: "I'm breastfeeding my 16 month old son & plan on doing so until he wants to stop".

"There's nothing here that most women wouldn't think, 'Yeah, absolutely".

And despite the fact he rarely gets to sleep in the marital bed, Chris has a very positive attitude towards it, saying: "My take on it, I feel sorry for mothers". "They are always judged", he said. It's nearly a battle you can't win.

"You do what's right for your family, for your kids and everyone involved. It doesn't matter what everyone else thinks".
