Time Magazine Cover Photo

Time Magazine Cover Photo, Grumet told NBCâ€™s Savannah Guthrie â€śwe knew exactly what we were going to get intoâ€ť by appearing in the article and photo, although she acknowledged the firestorm around the magazine cover went beyond her expectations.
Grumet, who practices what is known as attachment parenting and herself was breast-fed until she was six, added that she doesnâ€™t feel like being with her child constantly â€” including having him sleep in her bed â€” takes away from her personal life.
â€śYou know, my relationship with my husband is very, very important to me and I think that it gives my children a strong bond, too,â€ť she said. â€śSo I think a lot of people say, you know, you canâ€™t really be, you know, intimate with your husband if youâ€™re co-sleeping and thatâ€™s just â€” I mean those are kind of myths, too.â€ť
Grumet added that her son Aaron is self-weaning now, and she hopes this will be the last year she breastfeeds him. â€śItâ€™s not right for everybody. You need to do whatâ€™s best for your baby and your own family,â€ť she added.
Dr. Bill Sears, who Time magazine dubbed attachment parentingâ€™s â€śguru,â€ť also appeared on the show and told Guthrie the practice is â€śnot extreme.â€ť
â€śIf you were on an island and you had no mother-in-laws, no psychologists, no doctors around, no experts, this is what you would naturally and instinctively do to give your baby the best investment,â€ť he said. (Politico)
