  • We're pretty much attachment parents, not 100%. I wore my son most of the time, we're affectionate, breastfed, coslept, etc. He wasn't ALWAYS being held, however, got plenty of tummy time and floor play.

  • I'm a cross between free range and attachment. And I feel it's wonderful!

  • I think it came very naturally for me, well the parts I "follow". For example, I naturally wanted to co-sleep, watch my baby for signs of need rather than a schedule, and breastfeed. I will sometimes wear my babies when it would not be convenient to carry them or be able to pick them up all the time. And that is kind of where I fall off the "attachment parent" wagon...I spank, I am very strict with discipline, etc.

  • I love attachment parenting. It works so well for all of us and comes so naturally. :) It was also a huge help with our preemie, as having so much physical contact is incredibly good for their growth and development (check out kangaroo care, if you're interested in that).
