Mum & Daughter Criticised For 'Bizarre' Breastfeeding Regime
A young mum has revealed that both she and her mother breastfeed her daughter.
Nurse Julia Cannons, 21, from St Louis, Missouri, told The Sun how she and her mum Angela Owens, 47, alternate feeding her 10-month daughter Naomi.
Julia says that it has enabled her and her granddaughter to develop a ‘huge bond’.
Angela started feeding Naomi when she was four-months-old after realising she was still lactating following the birth of her youngest child.
“I love breastfeeding,” Julia said.
“My girl is 10 months old, and I’ve been breastfeeding from the beginning.
“She would cluster feed all the time.”
“She wanted to be on the boob 24/7.
“It was like a comfort thing.
“One day I really wanted to have a shower and to get out of the house so I headed over to my mother’s.
“I was in the shower and she needed a feed.”
Julia then said her daughter started ‘squalling’ when in the shower and goes onto explain “My mum had already asked me how I would feel about her breastfeeding Naomi,” she explained.
“She still produces milk, and we knew she still produces.
“I was OK with it.
“She’s an over-producer. She’s been checked for any problems and had CAT scans done, but there are no health problems.”
Since then, the mum and nan haven’t stopped doing feeding and people have said its ‘ weird, unnatural and gross,” Julia said.
