  • I'm not sure what they would be called but there are names for different types. We were talking about this in my phyc class. Clearly not everyone attachment parents and there is a clear difference between some one who does and doesn't AP.

    Why do you ask? If I know more maybe I can better answer your question.

  • I guess there would be different degrees of AP. I breast fed both kids and co-slept with both kids only while they were breastfeeding (approx. 1 year each). I also carried each in a sling most of the day until about 5 months. I wanted them to get the benefit of attachment parenting without going overboard.

  • I've heard of helicoptor parenting. but I dont' even know what attachment parenting is. Why do we label it instead of just doing it our own way we think is best?
