Attachment Parenting

It’s hard to know what our parenting style will be like after baby is born. I’m sure it will develop some quirks of its own and be very unique to us and our family. But, in the meantime, I’m beginning to think we’ll follow something close to the Attachment Parenting model.

Attachment Parenting can most easily be described by the interactions and activities between parents and baby, Dr. Sears lists them by B’s for easy memorizing

  • Birth bonding
  • Breastfeeding
  • Babywearing
  • Bedding close to baby
  • Belief in the language value of your baby’s cry
  • Beware of baby trainers
  • Balance

    I think it's great that you are thinking about your parenting style! There is a lot that you'll discover & learn when the baby gets here, too but having that foundation is important.I fall somewhere in the middle on everything. I had a natural labor & wanted my daughter given to me immediately after birth. I am breastfeeding & plan to until she is at least a year old. We planned on her sleeping in our room with us, but she didn't go for it. Wouldn't sleep unless she was in her own room. She also didn't want to be worn in a sling. It was like she didn't want to be confined. Now I have like 5 slings that I never use. We also did a pattern & routine with her after 6 weeks & it really helped her eat well & helped me keep my supply up & my baby blues down & now my daughter is rarely fussy & sleeps great! We figured out what worked for her.So I found that I had to mix up different parenting styles to find what worked best with our family & with my daughter!! Sounds like you're on a great track! You have to find what works for your family!
