Australian mother of three Maha Al Musa, 51, still breastfeeds her 5-year-old daughter, and vows to keep at it until age 10 if that's the child's wish.
The circumstances may sound extreme, but her reasoning is familiar and simple.
"I believe it helps boost her immune system. To this day, she is very rarely ill and her temperament is calmer and more relaxed than the other children," Al Musa says.
Whatever you think of her decision, the story has gone viral and sparked debate.
The Australian belly dancer practices extended breastfeeding, much like Jamie Lynne Grumet, the 26-year-old L.A. mom who covered Time last year.
