Article: The 7 Bs of Attachment Parenting
I sort of fell into attachment parenting. I was still feeling my way around the whole parenting thing. I read A LOT of books and tried to emulate them but when it came down to it, I had to trust my instincts, listen to my baby, keep my baby close, sleep with my baby and ignore everything else that went against those things. I had only briefly heard of Dr. Sears and looked at one of his books but after reading this article I can see that his philosophy fits well with ours because the very things I listed are on his list!
In the circles that I "ran" with attachment parenting was rather new and probably more "liberal" than many practiced but in the end that is what we were most comfortable doing for our babies and children.
What about you? Do you practice attachment parenting?
If not, what is different about your approach and why?
I don't think the hubby has to be kicked out to co-sleep. Our three year old snuggles up to my hubby's back not mine! :) We sleep next to each other and our son on the outside and our other son on the floor beside us. That way if our three year old rolls out of bed he rolls into bed with his brother...usually without waking up too! :)
