ATTACHMENT PARENTING ‘Time’ Features Breastfeeding Moms

‘Time’ Features Breastfeeding Moms

With Mother's Day around the corner, Time magazine posted the provocative cover of its latest issue on Twitter Thursday morning, which features an attractive 26-year-old mother breastfeeding her 3-year-old son and reads, “Are You Mom Enough?” The cover immediately went viral, with some critics expressing shock about the concept of “attachment parenting” that the breastfeeding mothers photographed in the magazine subscribe to, and others berating the sensationalist nature of the pictures for effectively exploiting, rather than advocating, the concept. Both mother and child are standing on the cover photo, a position that photographer Martin Schoeller hoped would “underline the point that this was an uncommon situation.”
