Watch This: Mom Defends Breast-Feeding Cover

Jamie Lynne Grumet talks about attachment parenting and why she breast-feeds her 3-year-old.


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.
