5.0 out of 5 stars Attachment Parenting is a wonderful way of life, September 22, 2000
This review is from: Attachment Parenting: Instinctive Care for Your Baby and Young Child (Paperback)
I wish every expectant parent would read Katie's book. I can't remember how old our son was when we discovered that there was a name for the method of parenting that my husband and I had adopted. We just "knew" not to let him cry himself to sleep, to share sleep with him, to let him breastfeed as he needed to, to hold him and wear him and love him 24 hours a day.
And then I discovered Katie's book and she reinforced all of our instincts! Whenever I have doubts (sometimes put upon me by society), all I have to do is re-read certain chapters or pages and it all comes clear to me again: my husband and I are the experts when it comes to our son. We should and will follow our instincts.
Yes, before reading this book, we had all the mainstream purchases: crib, swing, baby bucket, baby bouncer seat, stroller. And we did use those items a few times, but not to the extreme that we've seen other parents, leaving baby alone for long periods of time. Our son has grown into a happy and healthy toddler and we owe a lot of it to being so Attached!

Sad irony is that I just read about the author's own son's lifelong drug addiction and current battle to stay alive because of it. Perhaps this "attachment parenting" is not the best way to approach parenting after all.
