Pregnant women baring all for the press is nothing new - think 1991 Demi Moore
- but the cover of Time
's newest issue moves the goalposts by pairing a quasi-nude mom with child long after
long after delivery.
Update, May 12th - 2:45 PST
: The mom featured on Time
's cover, 26-year old Jamie Lynne Grumet, defends
her decision to appear on the magazine despite widespread criticism of the move:
I understand some of the breastfeeding advocates are actually upset about this because I feel like [the photos] don't show the nurturing side to attachment parenting. It's more of a cradling, nurturing situation. And I understand what they're saying, but I do understand why Time chose this picture because it...did create such a media craze to get the dialogue talking.
