Time breast feeding cover looks appalling. The Time magazine cover shows too much. Meanwhile its photo looks disgusting (video).
Latest Time Magazine cover showing a mother breastfeeding her three years old son in a standing posture has created ripples across the world. To be true, the photo is showing more than what a mother needs to show while breastfeeding her child and the way she was doing it.
The 21 May, 2012 cover of the Time magazine shows a 26 year old woman Jamie Lynne Grumet breastfeeding her three year old son. Many people say that the image is shocking and makes a mother breastfeeding her children rather ridiculous.
Many have said that the cover was more sensational than merely showing the very respectful tradition of a mother breastfeeding her child. Others have said that if the magazine had to show a woman breastfeeding, it might have asked a normal looking mom doing it instead of a woman who looked more of a model than a real mother.
Breastfeeding is on the rise in the US. Earlier mothers who breastfed their kids were looked upon. But now it has become sort of fashion in most of the world including the US. In the U.S., more babies are being born in facilities that have made special efforts to support breastfeeding than ever before. However, less than 5% of U.S. infants are born in Baby-Friendly hospitals, a global designation that indicates best practices in maternity care to support breastfeeding mothers. The hospital period is critical for mothers and babies to learn to breastfeed, and hospitals need to do more to support them. Hospitals can participate in the Maternity Practices in Infant Nutrition and Care (mPINC) survey, and use their results to improve maternity care practices. Hospitals can also work together to share information and experiences on how to achieve the Baby-Friendly designation. State health departments are a valuable resource that can provide technical assistance to hospitals seeking the Baby-Friendly designation. Women needs to be educated further to make them more aware about this sacred task.
