Babies are assholes? Jef Otte and Andrew Orvedahl debate attachment parenting

As we noted in a recent post about a new Metro State policy, breastfeeding is suddenly a hot topic thanks to a Time magazine story about attachment parenting featuring a hot mama with a toddler craning up to dock with her nipple. This prompted our own Jef Otte to rip attachment parenting in a Village Voice post that declared "Babies are Assholes." His views frosted 2012 Westword MasterMind and attachment parent Andrew Orvedahl, prompting a mano-a-mano smackdown on our Show and Tell blog. Read all about it in "The great debate: Andrew Orvedahl and Jef Otte settle their parenting differences like men."
