Seen Time Magazine’s new cover on extended breastfeeding and the attachment parenting movement?


Did you think the cover’s bold photo & title “Mom Enough” was intentionally worded to create a heated debate between moms who choose to attach. parent & those who do not. Think they will succeed?

    I found the photo interesting. First, did they pick the tallest 3yr old toddler could find? Did they really need to put him on a stool to make him look taller? If you saw a yr old w/a bottle would you feel the same? Time wanted to pit moms vs moms!

    Your comment made me laugh, I tend to agree! I suspect Time will get more than they bargained for though with both sides of the coin yelling at them!

    Attach Parent is def more than the cover. The defiant stance of the mom is ridiculous! They certainly got attention but I think both people who attach parent & those who don't are rather upset at the portrayal. Thanks for your insightful comments

    I disagree in general w/ regards to photos of nursing children. But a national photo of this nature, I suppose it is possible. But, it is also possible he'll grow up in a house learning to stand up for your beliefs & be more proud than embarassed

    She is extended nursing, she cares for him & his future a great deal. BFing has shown to make kids more independent. Hopefully, she'll teach him to be a leader not a follower. I do see your point w/ all the national attention. It was a poor photo
