Tamara Ecclestone has revealed she has no plans to stop breastfeeding her two and a half-year-old daughter, Sophia.
Speaking about her plans to continue breastfeeding her toddler in an interview with The Sun, the F1 heiress said: "It's something that is so natural…When there are people walking around the streets these days in thongs and bras, I'm like, 'Really? Can anyone say anything?' I find it bizarre what people's priorities are."
Tamara defended her decision to breastfeed her daughter
The 31-year-old revealed that she also feeds Sophia solid food, but that she had no plans to stop breastfeeding her as her daughter finds it "comforting".
"Yes, Sophia is two and a half and yes, a lot of people wouldn't breastfeed now," she admitted. "But it's so comforting for her and she loves it. She doesn't have a dummy, a blanket or take a bottle."
Speaking about eventually stopping, she said: "We'll cross that bridge if it comes to it, but for now she's my baby. You're doing something that is so amazing for your child, but it can cause such hostility and anger."
Sophia will turn three in March
The heiress also opened up about protecting her daughter from threats after her step-grandmother, Aparecida Schunck, was held to ransom back in July.
"Of course it is such a worry and a fear. You have to take all the measures that you can," she said.
"I'm always with Sophia and there’s always someone with us. I feel very comfortable with the people that protect us… My daughter is my biggest priority so her safety is something I take very seriously. But at the same time, you can't always live in fear because that’s when you let people like that win."
