A 53-year-old mother of three refused to get her child immunised because she believed that her breast milk has special powers.

Maha Al Musa, from Byron Bay in New South Wales, Australia breast feeds her 6-year-old daughter Aminah and says she will keep doing so until the child is eight.

Speaking to Women's Day magazine in Australia, little Aminah said: "Sometimes it tastes like candy canes. It tastes like a lot of different things.

"More kids should because it's good for you."

Maha normally breastfeeds her daughter before bed, but admits that she is willing to do it anywhere, anytime, even in the playground in front of her child’s school friends.

Ms Al Musa runs a creative arts spiritual birth preparation class and a prenatal belly dance class.

The mother of three, who lives by a strict Paleo diet, features on The Discovery Channel’s Extreme Breastfeeding series.

Ms Al Musa, who openly posts photos of her breastfeeding her six-year-old on Facebook, enjoys the bonding time with her daughter and says it keeps her vital.

In a post shared on social media, alongside a photo of her feeding her daughter in the park, Ms Musa continues: “Let child and mother choose what’s best for them their circumstance and family.

“4-8 is NORMAL age for self-weaning,” she adds.
