I'm very curious to know more about attachment parenting? What exactly does it mean? It sounds like a good thing, so I'd like to hear from moms that practice it. I babywear, I'm a sahm, still nursing my 8 month old. Does any of this have to do with attachment parenting?
Also, I'm very curious about co-sleeping. My son doesn't sleep well in our bed. He really prefers his crib, but I think that's because we weren't fond of the idea of co-sleeping originally. I'm pregnant again and thinking about co-sleeping, but I'm wondering what about when the baby naps? Do you have to nap with him/her to get him/her to sleep or do they sleep in their crib?
Any information from moms who have experience with this stuff would be great.

I have always been an AP parent... I didn't really hear the term used often until cafemom though. My mom did give me "the baby book" by dr. sears and he went over AP parenting, but I got to that part AFTER I already did some of the things naturally. Check out this link for more info on Dr. Sears.
Any way, we co slept. We have a full bed and for nap time either she would sleep in the middle of the bed, or in a bassinet near us, or in her boppy on the couch etc. She slept everywhere (when she would sleep.. daytime sleeping wasn't common for her lol). She is 2 now and has her own room but we coslept for 19 months, breastfed for 21.
I would occasionally nap with her though, when I was tired haha. It was nice!
