TIME Magazine presents its edition of breastfeeding moms which features mother Jamie Lynne Grumet on the cover breastfeeding her nearly 4 year-old son latching on to her breast. Photographed by Martin Schoeller who took pictures of three other breastfeeding moms, the pictures show the model-type moms blankly staring into the camera lens while their children get in a bit of nutrition.
Married California blonde bombshell mom, Jamie Lynne Grumet, 26, son Aram, who is nearly 4 years-old, can be seen standing as apparently the young toddler would be too much to hold while breastfeeding.
While some are simply thrown back by the idea of breastfeeding in public, TIME magazine is not only addressing this stigma but spoke with Grument about it and attachment parenting.
According to Grument in a Q&A with TIME magazine, she was breastfed until she was 6 years-old and the benefits were that she had lots of self-confidence and security. Grumet, went on to say she believes she was breastfed so long because her family was so much into nutrition thanks to her father who is a nutritional scientist.
Jamie Lynne Grumet, who also has an adopted son, 5, spoke on adoptive breast-feeding which she says is considered extended breast-feeding.
Grument states that she hopes that the more people see it in our culture, the more it’ll become normal and she wants people to see it more.
“… people have to realize this is biologically normal. It’s not socially normal…”
According to research, breast milk is considered one of the healthiest form of milk for babies.
Many believe this recent feature by TIME magazine is exploiting breastfeeding and not embracing it in a celebratory matter.
Exactly what is the problem with breastfeeding or breastfeeding in public? Is Time magazine’s breastfeeding cover too much or a much needed eye-opener?
