Time Magazine Breastfeeding Mom Speaks Out

The Time Cover Mom Speaks Out: Does Hearing Her Side Change Your Opinion?

This morning, Time magazine's cover mom went on the Today show to share her views on attachment parenting and explain the story behind the cover photo. She was joined by her 3-year-old son, Aram, Dr. Sears, and Time's science editor, Jeffrey Kluger.

"I understand some of the breastfeeding advocates are upset about this," 26-year-old Jamie Grumet said. "[The cover image] doesn't show the nurturing side to attachment parenting . . . I understand what they're saying, but I do understand why Time chose this picture. It's created a real media craze to get the dialogue going."

"You need to do what's best for your baby and for your own family," Grumet continued. "You can take some of Dr. Sears's attachment parenting philosophies and maybe not others, and that's OK; you're not a bad parent. Your child will still be OK."

Does seeing the young mother speak about her reasons for practicing attachment parenting (her own mom breastfed her until age 6) change your opinion of the magazine cover?
