Like ones that breastfeed past 1 year, and sleep with their babies, and use slings and carriers all the time instead of strollers, and things like that?
Is it good for the children?

I think it very much depends on the personality of the kids and the parents. I would think the test is how does the kid do away from the parent. If the parent has too strong a personality and the kid seems lost without the parent that would indicate a problem to me. If the kid seems well adjusted and takes certain risks that would be age appropriate, but runs back to mom if he falls down and gets hurt, but then goes back to his play then that child has been given a firm foundation, and will be fine. Some kids are easier than others. Some kids are difficult no matter what you try.

I breastfed 18mo. Co sleep. hold my child all the time (shes almost 3) we didnt use a sling because the one i bought dd never liked & i didnt know how to work a moby wrap at the time... I dont really label my parenting style. I just try to be as caring, nurturing & loving to my child as possible. Yes I got the "shes going to get spoiled" "shes going to be stuck on your side" "shes not going to learn independence" ......YA RIGHT! My dd is great with going away from me. She loves visiting with family with me not around... she doesnt fear talking to people & she is VERY independent. IMO growing a child in a secure, loving, supportive environment ( alot like AP) makes their esteem grow & they learn to be independent .. Kids who dont get proper attention are the ones who tend to either be super clingly (since they never get it, they are trying to express their need for love/touch)..
