Time magazine features a photo of 26 year-old mother Jamie Lynne Grumet breastfeeding her nearly 4 year-old son. Time magazine’s cover is controversial, but kind of humorous to me personally, and the magazine publishes an article on attachment parenting.
This parenting technique has been on the rise over the last two decades. The book The Baby Book by Dr. Bill Sears and his wife Martha was published in 1992. The book advocates extended breast-feeding, co-sleeping and “baby wearing,” in which infants are physically attached to their parents by slings.
Jamie, the woman on the cover, says that she “grew up this way and never thought about raising [her] children differently.”
Well different strokes for different folks! Some people don’t have the time or desire to practice attachment parenting. This time-consuming method can not suit every parent, but if some want to try it out, go ahead and have fun with that?!
