I never imagined I’d be the type of parent tours the ‘attachment parenting’ style… I’m not actually sure that’s what my parenting style is, but its what I’ve been told.
Since the age of 6 months our daughter has slept in our bed, she’s now two and showing no signs of leaving – or it could be that I’m not ready for her to leave!!!!! I also breasted her for almost 2 years before she weaned herself… Verdict? Am I ‘attachment parenting’ because I coal rep and breastfed that long?
I hate controlled crying, and I have never left my daughter overnight. Inno longer baby wear as she refuses but occasionally she will fall asleep in her sling if she’s having a stubborn ‘I don’t need my nap day….’
Whatever style parenting I’m doing, I just followed my instincts. My daughter is so independent and a gorgeously happy and friendly child. I think somewhere along the way I did something right…
