Time unveiled a very revealing cover for its latest issue, and Twitter has had plenty to say about it.
The cover features Jamie Lynne Grumet, a 26-year-old California mom, shown breast-feeding her son Aram, who turns four next month. In the issue — titled, “Are You Mom Enough?” — Grumet is interviewed about her parenting decisions and the modern relationship between mother and baby.
Internet users responded quickly to the cover — it has already been Photoshopped, criticized and applauded.
Okay, I’m personally all about some breast feeding. It’s great for the baby, serves as bonding time, yadda, yadda, yadda – but at four years old, why does your child need to be attached to your boob?? If you’re that adamant about the health benefits, get a breast pump, pump your milk into a sippy cup, and then hold your preschooler while he drinks it. He’s receiving the healthy benefits, you’re bonding, and you’ll be saving him or her from the weird memories and inevitable emotional scarring and confusion in the process… I’m just sayin’.
