In the other TiktokJacy responded to a comment that read: “Your kid will absolutely resent you for that in the future. At that point it becomes a form of sexual assault.”
She said: “Prolonged breastfeeding is not sexual assault.
“There’s nothing sexually suggestive about a child eating,” she said as she zoomed into the camera to emphasize her point.
“Just because you stimulate breasts, doesn’t mean a baby. A baby is eating, they use you to nourish.
“You don’t even have children, stop.” The young mother replied.
Jacy also writes that there are many health benefits of breastfeeding for mother and baby.
Shocked fellow parents rushed to comment, saying: “6 is definitely too old.”
“If your child is old enough to remember, that’s too old.” Another emphasized.
While some advocates, say, “Yes mama! What we call expansion here in the US is normal around the world. It’s just that we want moms to get back to work faster in the future. among other reasons.”
Some people hate rude comments that she has to respond to, as she wrote: “Ugh. I hate people like that. Why think like that??? Comments like that make some mothers not even want to breastfeed. It’s a wonderful thing.”
While another asked: “What’s wrong with everyone? A child is not sexizing their main food source…”
“It’s bad for their teeth,” said another.
Many have blamed Jacy, saying, “At this point, something is wrong with the parent.”
While some said, “Eek, I feel bad for that kid, and told her, ‘You have to stop before they get to school. “
“At 6, you risk her being bullied if her friends find out. It’s not fair to her.” One concerned parent explained.
While one person offered the solution, saying: “Just pump and give them a drink”.
