Time magazine's breastfeeding cover star has said she will not stop breastfeeding her almost-four-year-old until he turns five.
 
Jamie Lynne Grumet, a 26-year-old mother from Los Angeles who has appeared on the cover of this week's issue, will continue to latch her toddler for one more year.
 
She said on the Today show this morning: 'I'm hoping our fourth year is probably going to be our final.'

The mother of two, who also breastfeeds her adopted five-year-old son named Samuel, appeared on the breakfast program with her son Aram.
 
As the youngster fidgeted in her lap, Ms Grumet acknowledged that her attachment parenting methods have been deemed offensive by others.
 
'I understand some of the breastfeeding advocates are actually upset about this,' she said.
