This week’s Time magazine cover is causing quite a stir.
It features Jamie Lynne Grumet, a 26-year-old woman breastfeeding her three-year-old son. Grumet was one of four mothers photographed by Time for a cover story on “attachment parenting,” an approach — outlined in Dr. Bill Sears’ 1992 The Baby Book — which recommends extended breast-feeding, co-sleeping and “baby wearing.”
Grumet is saying she will continue to breastfeed her son until he’s five.
Frankly, I don’t know why people are making such a big fuss about Grumet or the Time cover.
After all, full-grown American men and women — in their 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, and even 70s — have been engaged in “extended breastfeeding” for years now.
H/t our Miss May!
