She's Back! Breastfeeding Mommy Blogger Does Another Magazine Cover
Los Angeles "mommy blogger" Jamie Lynne Grumet is a breastfeeding cover girl once again. The stay-at-home mom and mother of two who caused a stir for her appearance on the front of TIME magazine breastfeeding her 4-year-old son while her 5-year-old son looked on is on the current issue cover of a parenting magazine.
On the cover of the latest issue of Pathways to Family Wellness magazine, Grumet is seen "breastfeeding her 4 year old while being cradled in the arms of her husband and oldest son," reports CBS2.
Referencing the TIME mag tag line of "Are you Mom enough?" this new cover story asserts Grumet is "Mom Enough to Speak Out."
The mom behind the blog "I Am Not The Babysitter" (titled because apparently many people think Grumet is a caregiver, not the boys' parent) "said she and her family decided to do another magazine cover at the suggestion of Attachment Parenting International," according to CBS2. Instead of reproducing the TIME cover, Pathways said they are given the money they would have spent on the rights to that organization.
The Pathways cover is meant to evoke a photo from Grumet's own childhood, where she was being breastfed by her mom and reaching for her dad, which she describes as "a moment that was captured that was really beautiful,” that represents the whole family.
Grumet says since the TIME cover was published she has distanced herself from consuming a lot of media, and tends to only watch movies and a couple of scripted shows on TV.
Grumet practices what's known as Attachment Parenting. High profile attachment parent and actress Mayim Bialik has taken heat, too, for her child-rearing philosophies, as well as for being seen breastfeeding her 3-year-old son in public.
