I keep seeing this claim being made and am not sure what to make of it. I do not know many people in real life who practice AP. Maybe people say this because they see it all over the Cafemom network?? What do you think?
My mom did some ap parenting before there was a name for it, I don't really like the term "attachment parenting" I think of it more as natural parenting, I mean AP isn't about breastfeeding/baby wearing/etc. The basics principles of AP are prepare for pregnancy, birth, and parenting, feed with love and respect (for SOME this means BF, but can and DOES happen with FF), respond with sensitivity, use nurturing touch, ensure safety, provide care and love, practice positive discipline, and strive for balance in personal and family life, I think ALL mothers (all good mothers anyways) do this, and what is right for one mother or family isn't right for another but just because it's different doesn't mean it's wrong.

But do you think that it is the trendy thing to do now?
I didn't realize that people thought this until recently. I always thought that people just do what works.
