Defiant mum-of-three says she will breastfeed her son until he chooses to stop (Daily Mail)
EXCLUSIVE: Defiant mum-of-three says she will breastfeed her son until he chooses to stop - and her only regret is not being able to nurse two of her children at once
- Temeaka Tate, 34, has been breastfeeding for nine years through three children
- She will keep breastfeeding her third child, a son, until he chooses to stop
- Ms Tate has been reported for posting her breastfeeding pictures on Facebook
- Her daughter stopped breastfeeding at four when her brother was born
A mother who has been breastfeeding non-stop for almost a decade is adamant she will keep feeding her third child until he decides to stop.
Temeaka Tate has battled online trolls and had photos of her breastfeeding her daughter at four-and-a-half reported to Facebook but is not bothered by what other people think.
'I was proud I'd gone from not being able to breastfeed to breastfeeding exclusively, so I took a lot of photos,' Ms Tate told Daily Mail Australia of nursing her daughter.
'They all got reported as child harm.'
The 34-year-old laughed off suggestions she had been pressuring her daughter to continue breastfeeding after she had turned four.
'It's not their bodies or relationship to comment on,' Ms Tate said of those who questioned her breastfeeding. 'No one was forced.
'I ask people if they've ever tried to make a toddler do what they don't want to do. I can't force a child to feed.'
