I just read a book about it but it's pretty old. Does anyone practice this typy of parenting? I was always resisting sleeping with my baby but now I think it may be a good idea. I feel bad now that I never let my 3 year old in our bed when he was a baby. We were very ridid with him. Is it fair to change parenting styles with our new baby? He's 7 months now.Answer Question

I don't think it's wrong to change up styles. You live and learn. Do what you feel best about, that's all that really matters. With your first, you did what you thought was best. Now you think something else is best. Nothing wrong with that.

I think every family has to do what is best for them. For me I would not let my kids sleep with me all the time. If they had a bad dream or if they had trouble sleeping I would let them sleep with us although I always tried to put them in their own beds. If you are thinking of doing this I think you have to let both children sleep with you. If you let the 7 month old sleep with you and have the 3 year old in his own bed, I believe it will cause problems. To the 3 year old it will look like he is being left out of something with the family.
In the end you have to do what you feel is best noone can tell you what to do. For me it is not a parenting style I would choose.

Oh and yes I guess we do the attachment parenting. I didn't read a book or follow any guidelines. I like sleeping with my kids. Soon enough, they won't WANT to sleep with me period so I look on the bright side. My husband is also completely on board with it. When the parents aren't together on parenting I think that's where the trouble in marriages comes in at. To each their own and everyones experience is going to be different.

I consider myself AP. I didn't even know what AP was until I joined CM when my son was nearly 3yrs old. I was just doing what felt right for me and my child/family! Dr. Sears is a great source for more info.
