Most commonly knows as publicly breastfeeding mother, Jamie Grumet is all set to rectify her image of a full-time breastfeeding momma. She will now get featured in yet-to-be released cover page of the magazine, Pathways to Family Wellness as an exemplary momma depicting attachment parenting, but in a different manner of course. She will team up with her husband Brian, her biological son Aram and adopted son Samuel to pose for this upcoming cover page.
Grumet’s reactions to her photo shoots
While Grumet remarks that photo-shoots like this that spread the message of attachment parenting happens to wonderful experience for her, she continues to remain awestruck with what happened in case of her breastfeeding photo-shoot for the cover of Time Magazine. She out-rightly rejected the fact that it was a publicity stunt. Rather, she comments to a staff reporter of The Daily Magazine that she was not a bit aware of the write-up that got published with her ‘seemingly obnoxious and provocative’ photo shoot! She further remarks that she felt embarrassed to discover her image-staining photo on the Time Magazine cover page.
Her own idea behind the much talked about pose
She has come up with further comment that though breast feeding is extremely essential for the neonate and establishes its mental attachment with its mother, not all cultures look at it in the similar manner. What more, there are serious stigmas attached to breastfeeding as well. In addition to this, attachment parenting has more to offer as compared to conventional parenting. Thus, her sole intention is to expel such myths and erroneous conceptions attached with breastfeeding and promote attachment parenting. She even feels that full-term breastfeeding should be ideally adopted as one of the primary triggers of attachment parenting. Her new full family photo-shoot for Pathway to Family Wellness happens to be the next trigger of this type of parenting.
However, the picture on the cover of Times Magazine, depicting Grumet breast feeding her son, who seems to be approximately 4 or 5 years of age, remains a debatable issue – can it be considered safe, or absolutely detrimental for a number of reasons?
