A mom who breastfeeds her four-year-old son has revealed people call her a pedophile.

Yakaly Di Roma, 31, from Wales, has released pictures of her breastfeeding son Hans in various poses, including at her laptop and in the middle of a bull ring.

She can also be seen posing in a Maleficent costume and tandem-feeding with one-month-old River.

Further pictures show her with her husband, Christian O’Reilly, with her son Hans breastfeeding and sitting on her lap.

But not everyone has been kind.

“I've been called a pedophile for breastfeeding my son,” she said. “I've also been told I do child porn photography because breastfeeding a child of my son's age is ‘disgusting’ and ‘disturbing’."


Mom called ‘disturbing’ for breastfeeding 4-year-old autistic son, defends it as ‘one thing that comforts him’

So ....

I really wasn't real sure just which category to put this thread under because it kinda touches on multiple issues.

And, I haven't really formed an exact opinion on this either.

I think I am more curious at the moment what others will say about this.

What say you?

There's a character in wildly popular TV seriesThe Game of Thrones who is breastfeeding her son at a much more advanced age than this, I would say at an age of 10 or 12.

Lady Lysa Arryn is her character's name. She gets killed off in Season Three or Four, I think. LOTS of characters get killed off in that series, LOL.

I don't have a problem with breast feeding, even in public.

But, I think this woman is inviting controversy intentionally.
She is. It's all about her - in this strange case of social-artistic impressionism.

I don't know that I'd call her names though, like pedophile. That's something entirely different. Simpleton level even.

But she is unremarkable in her efforts, whatever the intent.

I agree .....

Strange case of "social-artistic impressionism" that surely knowing would invite controversy.
