Time Magazine cover

DETROIT -

The cover of the latest issue of Time magazine is sure to turn heads and draw gasps from readers.

It shows a three-year old boy sucking on his mother's breast while standing on a chair.

The image accompanies an article about "attachment parenting". It is an approach whereby parents breastfeed and co-sleep with their children, in addition to wearing their children in slings.

Jamie Lynne Grumet, the woman featured on the cover with her son, is a real mother who subscribes to the philosophy. Photographer Martin Schoeller shot her and three other mothers breastfeeding their children.

"When you think of breast-feeding, you think of mothers holding their children, which was impossible with some of these older kids," Scholler said. "I liked the idea of having the kids standing up to underline the point that this was an uncommon situation."

I, I don't know. I am all for attachment parenting, but I would not still be brestfeeding my 3 year old. I am NOT knocking anyone that choices to BF longer than 2 years, its just not for me. I think the photo will definitely hit a nerve in A LOT of people!

Attachment parenting! I was doing this for the last 12 years! (5 kids) guess it has a name now!  But then again it was not by choice.  All my kids were/are high need babies!  They slept with me cause that was the ONLY way to get ANY sleep!  I tried EVERYTHING to get them to stay by themselves.  Walkers, swings, ect.  But all they ever wanted was for me to hold them. I BF, and Co-sleep, sometime wear. 

To each his/her own!
