    STORY: WOW! TIME Magazine Covers A Mom Breastfeeding Her 3-Year-Old Son!

    Visiting NBC’s Today Show Jamie Lynne Grumet, the 26-year-old mother from Los Angeles, says she won’t stop breast-feeding her son saying:

    “I’m hoping our fourth year is probably going to be our final.”

    The mother of two, who also breastfeeds her adopted five-year-old son named Samuel, appeared on the breakfast program with her son Aram.

    Grumet acknowledged her attachment parenting methods have been deemed offensive by others but says:

    “I understand some of the breastfeeding advocates are actually upset about this.” Adding “This isn’t how we breastfeed at home. It’s more of a cradling, nurturing situation [at home]. I understand what they’re [the advocates] saying.”

    The cover reflects the inside story of how many mothers still subscribe to attachment parenting, which stands by three main tenets are extended breast-feeding, co-sleeping and “baby wearing,” in which infants are physically attached to their parents by slings.

    Take a look at the video above to see what Grumet had to say on the Today Show.
