Mum slammed for admitting to breastfeeding while having sex

The controversial parenting method has divided the internet.

A mother who admits to breastfeeding her baby while having sex with her partner has enraged the internet – with controversy further inflamed after a video surfaced of her three year old son making an unusual comment during feeding. 

YouTube star Tasha Maile, who spoke of her unusual parenting on This Morning UK, has defended her decision to breastfeed her son while having sex.

After her appearance on the morning program, her YouTube channel came under fire when viewers noticed an unsettling comment made by her son in an earlier video. 

Her son, Josiah, who was just three when the footage was filmed, looks to the camera and says, ‘It’s good to breastfeed and kiss. Yesterday…we is pretending you’re my girlfriend and I was your boyfriend and I kissed you.’ 

Tasha responds, ‘So cute.’

The video has sparked outrage with one viewer so disturbed by the footage she claims she is ‘going to the FBI’ because this is ‘not normal behaviour.’ 

Another person accused the YouTube star of ‘looking for attention’ and as having ‘psychological issues’.

On This Morning, Tasha hit back at critics saying she stands by her actions.

‘The baby is not judging you and thinking ‘my mum and dad are having sex,” she argued. 

She explained her son had been very attached to her at the time and that her baby was ‘not involved’ but simply ‘there’. 

‘I just like to share my life with others. Being an adult about the conversation: the baby was sleeping while breastfeeding and again, being an adult, I think we all like sex. It’s totally fine,’ she continued.

The host then asked her if she has sex while her child is awake. 

She said: ‘Even if the baby is awake and off to the side…If the baby is OK, they’re not judging you.’

The host then asked if she’s intimate with her husband in front of all her children, as she still breastfeeds her five-year-old son. 

Tasha replied, ‘It’s not about being right or wrong. If you’re having sex in front of your children and it feels right then it feels right.’
