Not sure what this 'Attachment Parenting' thing is?
Before I gave birth to my baby girl I had never heard of Attachment Parenting. I just knew, after her birth, that the way I wanted to raise her, the way that felt natural and 'right' was not the way others were telling me to raise her. I think one day I googled 'holding your baby' or something similar and came upon a series of AP links.

A light went off, a smile came to my face. I thought, 'I am not alone. I am not wrong. There are others that think and feel as I do.' It was a big moment for me, seeing the way I felt coming out of the mouths of others.
Here are the 8 Principles of Attachment Parenting, as listed from API (Attachment Parenting International) click on them for the full explanation:

  1. Prepare for Pregnancy, Birth, and Parenting 
  2. Feed with Love and Respect 
  3. Respond with Sensitivity 
  4. Use Nurturing Touch 
  5. Ensure Safe Sleep, Physically and Emotionally 
  6. Provide Consistent and Loving Care 
  7. Practice Positive Discipline 
  8. Strive for Balance in Personal and Family Life



This is a very good link to the Attachment Parenting International Blog; API Speaks, which explains a lot more and includes informative links to articles/blogs by parents and experts alike that pratice and/or encourage APing.


Anyone else have a good link I should be posting here that explains the dynamics of APing? Send me a message on my profile (or just post it here, if you would rather) and I will put it up here!

Hi Everyone! Just joined MBC today. I don't really consider myself an AP follower, but I do a lot of AP things! I'm definitely not perfect at it, but I like it.

I just posted something on my blog called "Obnoxious Comments and Clever Responses: Breastfeeding Edition." It goes over ten of the most rude comments commonly directed at breastfeeding moms and offers some clever ways to respond. Check it out here: http://mommyhoodnextright.blogspot.com/2010/06/obnoxious-comments-a...

Be sure to leave the obnoxious comments that you have received, along with their responses!

I look forward to hearing from you all!

-Jessica a.k.a Nya's mom
