This cover is wrong and it’s not because a 3 year old boy is breastfeeding. I have NO problem with that. But already, across the internet, people are reacting to this photo with disgust. It’s not my thing, but again, I have no problem with this boy, his mom, and her boob.
What irritates me is the headline:
“Are you Mom Enough… why attachment parenting drives some women to extremes.”
TIME Magazine editors, please know that all mothers are “Mom Enough”— we just choose different paths and styles to raise our kids. Some moms breastfeed, some do not, and some are not even able to. Some mothers have to work, some CHOOSE to work, while others are able to stay home. We are all different. We all have our own unique challenges. And we all go to “extremes”.
This cover photo, whether intentional or not, is an attempt to make “attachment parents” look like freaks. Sad… very sad. ENOUGH of these “Mommy Wars”.
