Oh…Man. Another Thing For Moms To Fight About?

I’m torn.

The Parenting Dilemma–“Time” Magazine has a cover photo of breast-feeding advocate Jamie Lynn Grumet nursing her 4 year old son.  I’m a firm believer in the importance of nursing–I nursed the twins for over a year.  I’m not sure I mind her nursing her 4 year old as much as the skinny jeans and defiantly sexualized look.  Is it outrageous?  Is it completely logical?  Many cultures internationally DO nurse until as late as 6.  What’s your thought?  I’m exhausted by the battle between advocates for Attachment Parenting and for Traditional Parenting.

    I breast fed all four of my children, I support breast feeding, but this is just plain inappropriate; and I always had blanket covering up while breast feeding in public. Plus, this boy looks more like a five-year-old.

    The whole defiantly sexualized pose makes me uncomfortable–nursing is such a NON sexual act.

    Im all for breastfeeding but this is an inappropriate pic that was meant to shock people. It reminds me of the kid in the movie “Grown Ups”. He would run around wanting “Mommy’s Milk” all the time & he was way to old to still be breastfeeding. Breastfeeding is a special time between a mother & child. To me this pics just gives ppl against breastfeeding more fuel for their fire. JMHO

  4. I am all for breastfeeding, but this is just inappropriate. I do not believe that in our society, we need to breastfeed until six. I can see that in some third world countries, yes, breastfeeding until six is worth it for the child to get the extra nutrition. But here, where nutritionally sound food is abundant? This is all done to desensitize us to pornography and pedophilia.

    There is nothing wrong with breastfeeding, and some babies for reasons need mothers milk for longer times, but and this is a big but, where is the sippy cup? This child is one month being 4, but he is big for his age. She also started breastfeeding her adopted son, at age 3. She is doing anything she can for attention, and I am sure the money she will get too. Plus I believe she has some mental problems too. Just think of what this attention will do to these 2 boys. She is a discusting excuse for young mothers today. She also has had had a nude hoto done in a mag before. Like I said, just attention.
