A Braintree mum has defended her decision to breastfeed until her children are as old as three.
Hayley Carter, 31, who recently featured in The Sun on the controversial subject, makes no apologies for breastfeeding her toddler son.
The mum-of-two of Plains Field in Braintree, breastfed her eldest son William, five, until he was 27 months old.
She is still breastfeeding younger son Joseph, who will turn three in November.
The community neonatal nursery nurse says breastfeeding for as long as her children want, will offer them the best nutrition, boost their immune system and she sees no reason to stop.
