When is the appropriate age to end breastfeeding children is a debate that has raged for decades with moms and parenting experts, and a new Time magazine cover is likely to only further fuel the debate.

The cover photo shows a mother, Jamie Lynn Grumet, breastfeeding her three-year-old son accompanied by the headline, "Are You Mom Enough?"

The cover story explores the trend of attachment parenting, which includes suggesting extended breastfeeding. *Some may find the cover objectionable* Click here to see the cover.
