1. Excellent post, you describe very well the way we parent our little monkey too. Another thing I have found is that attachment parenting feels right to both myself and my husband, it really isn’t a choice we made. We’d have to actually make a conscious decision to parent a different way and it would be hard work!

  2. This is really beautiful! Helps me feel less crazy too~do everybody’s parents think they’re nuts? LOL! (((((HUGS))))) sandi

  3. Really nicely put! I go with my instincts in parenting a lot, too. And the more I learn about babies the more I understand why attachment is so important.


  4. Great! I totally believe that APing is just listening to your instincts.Thanks for the inspiration!

  5. I totally believe in breastfeeding, for all of the health and emotional benefits of it to both the baby and the mother. I just wish that it had worked out better for Sabrina and myself.

  6. I’m on the other side of attachment parenting. My children who were attached (though I didn’t know the term at the time) are now ages 37, 34, 30 & 28. I can say with a certainty that “it works!”. Although widely scattered, they are all friends with me and their sibs & they are all contributing to changing the world for the better.

  7. I want some of your backbone, girl! It’s so nice you fully believe in what you do.

  8. This sounds like a lovely proclamation….you should post it on your fridge as a reminder for all your family. Or maybe, I should post it one mine!! :)
    I love your conviction and echo your beliefs.

  9. What a great post, Amy! I agree wholeheartedly with everything you say and like you, despite not knowing it was labelled attachment parenting (maybe it’s an American phrase?) I simply followed my instincts with each of my babies. (I prefer parenting by instinct too!)

    I now have three VERY independent children who know that my husband and I are always there for them no matter what…

  10. i breastfed my children for quite a long time. i don’t regret it, other than having very saggy boobs now!

    i am very close to both of my children, and am glad that i followed my instincts.

    they are now 6 and 7 years old. it goes by very quickly.

  11. I love this! Thank you so much for posting it! This is a perfect reflection of how I parent and what I believe in for my children! Love your website!

  12. Thanks for shareing, we have the same style of parenting. Glad you put it in writing.
