Short film encourages mothers to breastfeed toddlers

An independent producer from Bristol has created a short film encouraging more mothers to feed beyond babyhood.

Claire Tchaikowski, herself an advocate of feeding to "natural term", or when a child decides to wean itself, says little is known or promoted about the nutritional benefits of breast milk past the first six months.

Her short viral film, Human Milk: Tailor made for Tiny Humans, has already been viewed nearly 3m times since launching a few weeks ago.
