Besides not Breastfeeding anymore I apply attachment parenting much the same. Another things we also included in that realm is babyled Weaning. We practice Co-Sleeping and positive parenting methods regards to discipline etc. There as actually such a lot. I love the term 'Aware parenting" You could do well to read anyting by Dr Althea Solter or Alfie Kohn as well as the book The Continuum Concept. There are some great Facebook groups also with like minded people who all feel the same and can help you when you need support etc.

Hi group,

I also practice attachment parenting (although I didn't know untill a while ago that I was ;) ), and quite vocally so. My baby (our first) should never even think that her parents (we both do) aren't there WHENEVER she needs them.

She has never needed to lie somewhere and cry. We just don't believe in that. I breastfeed and plan to do so for a long time. She gets my breast whenever she wants it. We don't watch the clock. (We've just started her on solids but it is still one teaspoon per day to get her used to other textures). She sleeps with us. Most of the time she sleeps in my or my husband's arms.

I get lots of advice on how not to "spoil" her. Well, she's my baby, my child and I will spoil her if I want to, it is my choice and not anyone else's because I will live with the consequences thereof! (which is hopefully a well adjusted and loved little person, safe in the knowledge that her parents are ALWAYS there for her)

Phew... that sounded like a bit of a rant but I find that the longer I'm a parent, the stronger I feel about certain things...

Wonderful Mrstsl. That is so fantastic. It's really amazing to see how kids flourish when treated with this kind of respect they deserve.

Hehe, my friend told me about this page, so here I am. I also love attachment parenting.

We did main stream parenting with my two boys who is now 4 and 5 but with my baby we started out with attachment parenting and I am loving it. Trying to still rectify what we did wrong with the boys. My baby will be 11 months tomorrow and I am closer to her than any human being. We breastfeed on demand, bedshare(doing waiting it out), I respond to all her demands, no matter how I feel, I soothe her with the breast at all times, and I baby wear. I have the Ergo baby carrier and she lives in there. I also do cloth diapering. Love this way of parenting. I wish I knew more about this when my boys were younger.
