Your Turn: TIME's Other Breastfeeding Cover

Kosovo Time Breastfeeding cover 1999

Maybe it was the cammo pants that put me over the edge. In any case, I invite your read on this TIME cover from April 12, 1999 and any thoughts you have about how it compares to the “Mom Enough” cover, and/or what it says about media, journalism or photojournalism.

By the way, a hat tip to Patrick Witty, TIME’s International Picture Editor, who tweeted yesterday about the only other TIME breastfeeding cover.
