I think attachment parenting is pretty creepy

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
It's just TOO much.

I mean, don't get me wrong, all kids should be loved and shown affection, but this whole "attachment parenting" seems to be a little twisted to me. These women have got to have some sort of issues somewhere with affection. To have to go THAT far to ensure your kid is loved. Or are you trying to find ways to avoid spending intimate time with ur SO?

And if you are going to practice this, I hope dearly that you don't have a son! There's nothing more irritating to me than a mommys boy who was obviously coddled way too much. I like my men to be MEN so most women do. As time goes by, these boys are more and more wimpy.

If your child can drink from a cup and eat the same dinner as you, why is he still on breast milk? Would you judge me if you saw my 4,5,6 yr old in public with a bottle full of formula?

We aren't kangaroos, let them be independent!

I think SOME of the attachment parenting I have seen is creepy, but not all of it. And I do not believe that children need every need met immediately and that they cannot not be told "wait a minute" once they are a certain age. Infants should be attended to as soon as possible (but at the same time there were times mine had to wait, mostly when I was in the middle of using the bathroom) but once they reach a certain ahe there is nothing wrong with them learning patience. Like I said SOME of what people call attachment parenting (and I don't know if you would even really call it that) I find odd and not beneficial, but definitely not all.....

Formula from a bottle is inferior to breast milk from the breast and canny be compared to each other. So creepy to raise children the way nature intended. *rolls eyes*

No need. I just choose to educate myself. Instead of bowing down maybe you should do the same.

I never said it made your parenting inferior. I'm sorry you can't breastfeed. It doesn't change the fact that breast milk is far superior than formula.
