Tonight’s Inside Story presents “Mother Knows Best” that asks at what age should mothers stop breast feeding?
It’s a confronting sight. A mum breastfeeding her six-year-old daughter, a schoolgirl.
Many will be shocked, even disgusted, but Maha Al Musa is happy to court controversy.
The 52-year-old Byron Bay mum is the standard bearer for what she describes as “natural motherhood”.
She’s a staunch believer in homebirth, is vehemently opposed to vaccination, and advocates a whole raft of other extreme views on raising children.
Maha believes modern mothers have lost touch with their natural mothering instincts … but her critics believe she’s lost touch with reality.
