Should older children be breastfed?

The cover of last week's TIME Magazine caused quite the stir across the country - and around the world. It featured 26 year-old Jamie Lynne Grumet breastfeeding her 3 year-old son. Besides heating up the debate on women breastfeeding in public - the cover and article sparked a new debate over attachment parenting - a style of parenting that promotes closeness. For the last week - websites and messageboards have lit up with comments from parents who either endorse the technique - or find it downright silly. But - if you think that attachment parenting is only about a mother breastfeeding her child past the cultural norm - then everything you know about attachment parenting is wrong!
