The internet is going crazy right now with the above image of this week’s TIME cover. The cover story is about “attachment parenting,” the school of child-rearing popularized by The Baby Book, whose author Dr. Bill Sears recommends breast-feeding into toddlerhood, letting babies sleep in parents’ beds, and carrying babies around all day in a close-to-the-body carrier.
The cover features 26-year-old Jamie Grumet, who writes an attachment parenting blog I Am Not the Babysitter. She breastfeeds her son Aram, who is four, and his brother who is five. Jamie was breastfed by her mother until she was six.
Is attachement parenting a trend in Baltimore? Let us know in the comments.
