Today’s editorial cartoon is inspired by Time Magazines cover story on what is known as Attachment Parenting and the controversial cover photo. Here it is in case you missed it (Click image for a Time Q&A with the mom)
I guess this image has caused some controversy both from the side who think letting your almost 4 year old still breastfeed and the attachment parenting advocates who think that this does not show the nurturing aspects of the practice. Forbes Magazine has a great round up of different articles on the subject.
So what are your thoughts?? Good idea, bad? How long should a kid sleep in the same bed as their parents and/or breastfeed in your opinion?
Happy Mothers Day…in that honor I’ll share with you this ditty I posted on G+
