Well, this Time magazine cover is sure to cause some major controversy.
Los Angeles mum Jamie Lynne Grumet, 26 posed for the cover of Time magazine breast feeding her Three year old son, she has said she also applies the same "attachment" parenting technique to her adopted 5 year old son.
Lynne revealed in her interview with Time that she was breast fed by her own mother up until the age of Six, and recalls vivid memories of being "latched onto her mothers breast".
She said "It's really warm. It's like embracing your mother, like a hug. You feel comforted, nurtured and really, really loved. I had so much self-confidence as a child, and I know it's from that."
Ms Grumet is a huge supporter of breast feeding "There seems to be a war going on between conventional parenting and attachment parenting," she said. Also writing on her blog: "I love how my mother never made breastfeeding a dirty or secret act."
We would love to hear your thoughts on this topic:
Is this appropriate? How old is too old for a child to be breastfeeding?
