Time Magazine Cover Photo May 2012: Mom Breastfeeding 3-Year-Old
The May 21, 2012 Time Magazine Cover Features a Woman Breastfeeding a 4-Year-Old. It's Stirred Some Controversy. Here is the Time Magazine Breastfeeding Cover
The May 21, 2012 Time Magazine cover is a big bowl of WTF, at least according to some. The 2012 Time Magazine cover features a picture of a woman breastfeeding her child. Normally such an image isn't that big a deal. In this case, the child is three years old.
The headline reads: "Are You Mom Enough? Why Attachment Parenting Drives Some Mothers To Extremes--and How Dr. Bill Sears Became Their Guru"
Here is Time Magazine's explanation of the breastfeeding cover.
The subjects on this week’s TIME cover aren’t models in pose. Jamie Lynne Grumet, photographed by Martin Schoeller with her 3-year-old son, is a mother from Los Angeles who subscribes to attachment parenting, the subject of staff writer Kate Pickert’s cover story. Attachment parenting has been on the rise over the last two decades, since the publication of The Baby Book by Dr. Bill Sears and his wife, Martha, in 1992. Its three main tenets are extended breast-feeding, co-sleeping and “baby wearing,” in which infants are physically attached to their parents by slings.
