After facing backlash about her parenting decisions, Tamara Ecclestone has revealed that she will stop breastfeeding her daughter Sophia in a few months time.

The billionaire heiress, 34, has previously defended her choice to breastfeed her child past a certain age, but she has now admitted that she wants to wean four-year-old Sophia off the habit by the time she turns four and a half in September.

In a candid interview on the Is It Just Me? podcast, Tamara told host Jo Elvin that she still breastfeeds Sophia “three or four times a week” at night to help her fall asleep.

Tamara, who is married to Jay Rutland, explained on the podcast: “I think the end is pretty close because now its something thats just at night times and its not even every night.

“Its when shes really tired – a comfort thing – or when shes maybe a bit under the weather.”

“I definitely think that, probably after the summer, shell be done,” she added.

Tamara admitted in the interview that she felt breastfeeding was “very natural” and helped her and Sophia connect.

“Its very natural and I dont feel like its been forced or its abrupt,” Tamara explained. “I feel completely ready and I think that its because its her decision.

“Its the end of something thats been such a big part of our lives.”

Tamara has previously come under fire for breastfeeding her daughter, but hasnt been bothered by critics.

“I dont mind being abused for something that I think is the right thing,” she said.

“Sometimes in life youve got to just stand up for what you believe in because not enough people do that.”

Last year, the mum-of-one sparked a parenting debate after revealing to the world that she still breastfed her daughter, then 3, on her TV show Tamaras World.
