Parents of Time Magazine's Breastfeeding Mom Live in San Ramon

The parents of Jamie Lynne Grumet, the woman breastfeeding on the cover of Time Magazine this week, spoke with CBS 5 on Friday.

In the last couple of days, it has been difficult to digest any media without seeing Time Magazine's cover photo.

It shows a 26-year-old woman, Jamie Lynne Grumet, with her 4-year-old son standing on a chair and breastfeeding.

On Friday, Grumet's parents Tom and Margie Morjigs, who live in San Ramon, talked with CBS 5 about their daughter.

“She’s really, really confident in herself and confident in what she is doing,” Tom Morjigs said.

Margie Morjigs said she nursed Grumet until she was 6.

“I had to go through a lot in the 80s,” Margie Morjigs said. “People did not want to see me nursing as much as I was, and I was picked on.”

Tell us what you think of the cover photo in the comments section.

I think this family is fundamentally dysfunctional and misguided in their views of what behavior is appropriate in today's society. Grumet was exposed to bizarre behavior by her own mother so i suppose you could say, "the apply didn't fall too far from the tree" as far as the daughter is concerned..
