Skip to comments.Time Magazine's Breastfeeding Cover: Moms React
Posted on 05/10/2012 2:56:15 PM PDT by Former Fetus
Does this cover go too far? (Photo: Time.com)The headline reads, "Are You Mom enough?" But if that wasn't enough to fan the flames of the Mommy Wars, there's the photo that goes with it: A pretty young woman wearing skinny jeans and a tank top, nursing her nearly 4-year-old son. It's meant to illustrate a story about Dr. William Sears and attachment parenting but, given that there's more to that movement than extended breastfeeding, it seems as if Time magazine was going for sensationalism and shock value.

Somebody’s going to be scarred for life.
I’m sorry but if you’re toilet trained and have teeth, you damn well better not be sucking on mommy’s booby anymore.
It’s not for the kid .
I thought SF outlawed happy meals?
Is someone else’s mommy’s booby OK?
Oh for Heaven’s sake!!!
Stick a fork in the country, it’s done!
We now have an illegal immigrant “president” who supports gay marriage and Time Magazine is printing covers showing what any reasonable adult would consider child pornography.
What’s next? Is there any hope at all?
TIME Magazine’s death-throes.
Ignore it, and it WILL soon go away.
Why does this even matter to people?
reminds me of that scene from Me, Myself, and Irene.
Will the sickness in America ever stop?
In ancient India, influenced by the belief that the longer a child nursed the longer he would live, mothers usually nursed their children as long as possible, often seven or even nine years sometimes. In Tsinghai, China, mothers observed in 1956 were still nursing for several years, five years not being unusual, or until another child was born. In Inner Mongolia in 1951, children nursed two or three years, nor was it rare that a six- or seven-year-old would want to nurse for a bit of reassurance.
I guess Time magazine thought it wasn’t getting enough attention lately.
The cover is another example of “Third World Behavior being held up as superior to First World Behavior”
This is child abuse. Not for the breastfeeding, but for having it on the cover of Time. You KNOW this picture is going to follow the kid around though school and into later life.
Move over, kid.
You should google breastfeeding websites if you really want to be shocked. Some people are breastfeeding kids into their teens. I think at some point it becomes a sexual thing for mom and sooner than you’d think for the kid too.
There was even a breastfeeding porn film from Spain a few years back where a 9-year old boy is literally shown searching the country for the perfect boob to feed from. He didn’t need a chair to go from boob to boob, with orgasmic looks on the womens faces.
Babies generally do not bite when they nurse, most have lots of teeth by one year old, breastfeeding is still beneficial for months after that time.
Good-for-nothing, classless pieces of crap.
Maybe it is time for the country to split. Let them ruin their country while ours prospers.
In Germany I seen many 7-8 year olds still with pacifiers and a few still on the teat.
Dogs and cats wean when the youngun’s start to teath.
I was a bottle baby so Im obsessed with most ALL breasts. My opinion probly doesnt count.
