Creeping

I was creeping over on the bump.  Do people actually do attachment parenting?  It seems like a marriage ruining practice to me.  So weird.

    I was just looking at that too.  It doesn't seem beneficial (for mom, baby, or dad) to me at all.  Crazy.

    What is the logic?  If I'm sleeping I can just let it attach to my boob and keep sleeping?

    My friend was all about that (and cloth diapering) for a few months.  They NEVER let her cry it out, and consequently they were exhausted all the time. She said that she realized that they needed to stop because she almost got into an awful car accident on her way to work one morning.Seriously, if a kid is dry, recently fed, doesn't have a fever and is crying when you put them to bed, they'll be okay.  They just don't want to go to bed!

    The baby sleeps in the bed with the parents.  In some cases, they do it until 4 years old!

    I can't wait to sleep with a baby every single night. DH is going to sleep on the couch now that he gave me what I wanted.

    Here's what wikipedia says:Many attachment parents also choose to live a natural family living (NFL) lifestyle, such as natural childbirth, home birth, stay-at-home parenting, co-sleeping, breastfeeding, babywearing, homeschooling, unschooling, the anti-circumcision movement, natural health, cooperative movements, naturism and support of organic and local foods.What is unschooling?

    It looks like froofy parenting.  Grades are too mean to my baby!

    Gah, no thanks! My kids will be in their own rooms. No sleeping with us allowed, unless sick or scared on occasion.

    OMG, I was kidding about making DH sleep on the couch, but it actually happens, there's a whole post about it!

    Ac - I don't doubt it. Some parents are nuts. I do know that in many cultures, it is the norm though.

    No thanks. I've already been in a sexless marriage (well, nearly so) and there's no way I'm going to let that happen again.

    I lurked on that board once.  I was like I was reading a foreign language.  I just couldn't understand it.  And the whole idea seems asinine to me anyway.
    Holy Crap. We survived the first year!

    Do you think the kids eat without the parents knowing?  Just have a midnight snack of mom?

    There's a post on the Trouble in Paradise board on the Nest about a girl and her 'exclusively co-sleeping' infant.  She's complaining about her non-existent relationship with her DH after just one year of marriage.  Well, Duh, girl - get the baby out of your bed and out of your room and pay attention to your husband!

    Those people freak me out. We'll have a bassinet in our room for the first few weeks, but there's no way in hell I'm putting a baby in the bed with us every night. I've accidentally kicked my cat off the bed before, and something tells me the baby won't have similar reflexes. Plus, there's the whole sexy time thing. How exactly is that supposed to work?

    un-schooling is where you don't send the kid to traditional school or homeschool, but instead choose life lessons and experiences to teach the child.yeah...I can understand certain aspects of attachment parenting, but overall, it's an incredibly difficult way to raise to child in this day and age, esp. if you work. Pretty unrealistic. People think that they can raise perfect super-babies by doing x, y, and z but in the end they're gonna cry, be a brat, fuss, get sick and be a pissy teenager eventually.
