Jacy Campbell, a 20-year-old certified lactation consultant, who wishes to nurse her daughter until she is six has responded to some of her critics on her TikTok account. Campbell often uploads videos of her one-year-old daughter, Emmy, on TikTok. Campbell claimed in a video released on January 4 that she plans to breastfeed Emmy until she is six years old. So far, the video has gotten over 1.9 million views, with some TikTok users expressing support for Campbell's nursing plan. One person wrote,  "Girl you do you!! That's amazing if you can make it to six... my babe lasted till four.” Another person added, “My mom did with my little brother until he self-weaned. He was four."

Many viewers, however, disagreed with Campbell's parenting approach, with one TikTok user writing, “At that point, it’s more for the mom than the kid.” Another person added, “Okay but at that age, they start school and stuff I fully support extended breastfeeding but this is too much.” “That’s actually disgusting that’s school age and I’m pretty sure they can call CPS (child protective services) for that lol,” yet another person commented.

Campbell has subsequently responded to these remarks, with one stating, “Your child will fully resent you for it in the future. At that point, it becomes a form of sexual assault." Campbell said in a video released on January 8, “extended breastfeeding is not sexual assault, there’s nothing sexual about the child eating. Just because you sexualize breasts doesn't imply a child does," she added. She went on to say, “a child is eating. They use you for nourishment.” She also stated in the comments that breastfeeding offers a "plethora of health advantages for both moms and newborns, but she didn't feel the need to justify it because of one mean statement.

Breastfeeding is advised until a baby reaches six months old, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). Doctors have previously noted that this timeline does not apply to all newborns and mothers, since the decisions should ultimately be made by the mother, who can nurse for as long as she wants. Breastfeeding has several "physical and mental benefits" for both the mother and the infant, according to the Cleveland Clinic. "Stronger immune systems," "fewer colds and respiratory illnesses," and "fewer ear infections" are among the advantages for newborns, it noted.
