The Time magazine cover story for this week is about attachment parenting, but it's the image on the cover, not the story inside, that's been getting the most attention. In it, Jamie Lynne Grumet is pictured breast-feeding her 3-year-old son, who is standing on a chair to reach her breast.

Grumet talked to the Today show about the controversy surrounding the photo, saying that she intended to make a point but she didn't expect it to cause such a stir.

Check out the interview, courtesy of NBC, and let us know what you think in the comments. Did Time go too far with this one, or do people who are disturbed by the parenting style or the picture need to calm down?
