Vending machines sell way more than just candy these days. There are vending machines that sell electronics and make-up and even live crabs (that one’s in China). But the new machine installed at Johns Hopkins Hospital is certainly one-of-a-kind.

Attachment Parenting: Is it a Trend in Baltimore too?

1

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.
