She was immediately trolled online with some claiming that the child was too old to be breastfed. One online user wrote: 'I really love the free-thinking tamaraeccle but... I do think 3-4 is just too old. Sorry to anyone that disagrees.' Another wrote: 'Breastfeeding at 3 years so fifi can stop when she is ready? Will she only go to school when she is ready?'

There were also many, who supported Tamara on the issue. '#TamarasWorld there's nothing wrong with a mother breastfeeding a 3 year old. It's a lot better than the milk you'll in shops and breastfeeding. It's only natural,' wrote one well wisher. Another said: 'Tamara's little girl is very loved. Not just with material things but also with attention.'
