A mum of two who tandem feeds her children has been called ‘disgusting’ and ‘a paedophile’ for taking photos while breastfeeding.
Yakaly Di Roma, from Wales in the UK, has also even accused of making ‘child porn’ by internet users who are upset by the images.
She has two sons, newborn River and Hans, aged four, who has autism.
However, the 31-year-old says it won’t stop her from taking photos and she hopes to normalize breastfeeding with her images.
“I’ve been called a paedophile for breastfeeding my son, I’ve also been told I do child porn photography because breastfeeding a child of my son’s age is ‘disgusting’ and ‘disturbing’,” she told Metro.
“Most people are nice; some others find it uncomfortable and there’s always a few that say nasty things but luckily most people are nice to us and see breastfeeding as the natural thing it actually is.”
Yakaly says that breastfeeding helps to calm Hans down and is the one thing that comforts him and makes him feel safe.
“‘It is the most natural thing in the world; it should be normalised, celebrated even,” she said.
Her Instagram page shows photos of her breastfeeding her son at her work desk and even in a forest.
“The more people see breasts as baby food and not something that's used to sell a product, the more people will understand that breast is best and a breast's main purpose is to feed babies.”
