People Judge A Woman Who Breastfeeds Her 7-Year-Old Daughter Because It Makes The Girl "Healthier And Happier"
The NHS recommends all babies are exclusively breastfed until at least six months old, and 73 percent of new mums choose to nurse from birth. However, by the time a baby reaches their first birthday, just one in every 200 babies is still being breastfed.
Denise Sumpter, a 48-year-old mother of two, was in the news because she allowed Belle, her 7-year-old daughter, to breastfeed. The woman claimed that it was the reason Belle was taller than most of her classmates and "had never been ill".
