Baby Breastfed by a Cow

Baby Breastfed by a Cow

Tha Sophat, an 18month old Cambodian toddler is being breastfed by a cow. The child has been suckling on the cow since his parents went to Thailand in search of job, leaving him behind with his 46 year old grandfather to take care of. According the grandfather, the infant started feeding himself from the cow’s breast after he became ill because his mother stopped breastfeeding him.

The child started sucking on the cow’s breast after he observed a calf doing the same thing. His granddad, Um Oeung, said that he left the boy to suckle on the cow because he started crying when he tried to drag him away. Ever since then, the toddler has been getting his daily meal in this fashion.

Neighbours have complained they are unpleased with the manner the grandfather is nursing the child. “‘They blame me and  told me not to allow him to suckle from the cow anymore”. “They say the boy will be ashamed when he grows up and that he will be naughty” he said. “His health is fine, he is strong and he doesn’t have diarrhea” he added. However, the baby has now restricted the suckling to one time a day.
