TIME magazine breastfeeding cover photo

Whoa. Hi there, TIME magazine. You went there, didn’t you?

I’m as pro-breastfeeding-in-public as one can be, but this cover photo the intentional provocation of this cover annoys me.  The 26-year-old mother Jamie Lynne Grumet is model-hot and that’s no accident; nor is it an accident that her child she is breastfeeding is three-years-old, an age which some may argue is “too old” to be nursing at their mama’s breast. I make no judgments about this mother’s attachment parenting or breastfeeding. But I wonder, will the visceral reaction to this provocative cover  — which I would place bets on being covered up at newsstands, a la Cosmopolitan titties —  do more harm to the parenting tactics she believes in than it will do good?
