Attachment Parenting

someone please school me on AP

or several someones, please!

what i knew of Attachment Parenting up until recently seemed kind of... nutty. (Away We Go, anyone?)

but the more i read about it, the more interested i am. (except for the extended breastfeeding thing, i can't get down with that)

can anyone give me some personal stories? things you do or don't do?

any insight is greatly appreciated!

Re: someone please school me on AP

  • AP is about focusing on the attachment between the child and his primary caregivers. It is being mindful that the nurturing a child receives sets the groundwork for developing a confident and happy child who feels safe venturing out in to the world on his own. BFing is simply one way to do that. You can be AP and not babywear or cosleep or breastfeed.

    For my family... I BF, but I'm not sure how long I'll do it. At least until a year, and then we'll see. I don't feel like not nursing your toddler makes someone un-AP. My DH and I babywear when we want, but I also use my stroller frequently. Kiddo sleeps in his crib that is sidecarred to our bed because having him in the bed with us full time was not working for all of us. I nurse the little guy in the night, even though everyone I know thinks "he should be STTN by now!" I let him watch Wonder Pets so that I can take a shower, even though some are appalled that I let my 7 mo old look at the TV.

    Basically, I do what works for our family, and don't do what doesn't work, and who cares what other people say I should or shouldn't be doing, kwim?
