Attachment Parenting as a Reality Show

Time Magazine Cover That Caught Everyone's Eye

Just when you thought it couldn’t happen, somebody woke up and realized that Time magazine had given them a wonderful idea: A reality show about Attachment Parenting.

When the cash registers were ringing for Time magazine (the first time in many years), TV producers who have been salivating for a new concept must have realized that they could cash in on that controversial cover. Enter the TV production company Collins Avenue (makers of “Dance Moms” and “American Stuffers,”) who is developing a reality show about mothers who breastfeed older children, the New York Post reports.

They are touting that this show will present the health benefits of breastfeeding for mom and baby, which are well known. Most doctors are now recommending exclusive breastfeeding for at least the first six months of a child’s life and then breastfeeding while supplementing with food for at least the second six months. With these facts in hand, the TV producers know how to capitalize on a sensational event.

There are many places that frown on the sight of a mom breastfeeding a child, and when the child is over two, that vision bothers many people. (medical advice is mixed on when you “should” stop breastfeeding).

“Experienced pediatricians realize that the benefits of breastfeeding don’t just magically disappear after one year,” Karen McGratty, a lactation consultant who is nursing her 3-year-old son, told the Post.

“I didn’t set out to nurse a 3-year-old,” mom Jessica Cary told the Post. “But two years came and went. Now breastfeeding and mothering are so intertwined for me.”

The TV show is in the creation stage at the moment, but you can be guaranteed that when this hits the small screen, there will be lots of sensational images that will accompany the debt.
