I hear attachment parenting a lot and it's, kind of, silly to think of what attachment parenting means. Our parents are not going to be attached and we have to teach them a technique called attachment parenting? How ridiculous is that? Of course you are going to be attached to your child. Attachment parenting came out of the extreme of the other side. People like Dr. Spock or Dr. Ferber, who said that you have to not pick up your baby, put your baby on a schedule and get your baby to sleep. Attachment parenting is simply organic parenting. You are attached to your baby. You should hold your baby. You should pick up your baby. You should be attached to your baby. You should love your baby. You should allow your baby to sleep in the same room with you because that is healthy. He doesn't have to sleep in the same bed, but he can sleep in the same room. Attachment parenting is simply, healthy parenting. Organic parenting. The parenting that people have done for billions of years.
