Attachment parenting and me

28th August 2014

If I had to conform to a ‘style’ of parenting, I think I’d have to side with the so-called “attachment parenting” style.

Babywearing fail

10th May 2014

I am not a fan of prams and pushchairs. For this reason, I am quite glad D never liked them either – we had a very good babywearing experience with him.

E however… At first I thought it was the carrier. E is a big girl and her legs are a bit too big to fit nicely in our carrier, so I adjusted it as much as I could but to no avail. I haven’t tried her in any other carriers because I don’t have any, but as a general rule she doesn’t mind being in the pram so… that’s what we do :( This (selfishly) annoys me for many reasons, but the biggest thing I dislike is that she is not close to me. She is definitely not like D who required constant contact – still does, in fact; she is happy to be put down, amuses herself and is generally not fussed about much.

Don’t know how people who use prams daily do it – then again, theirs are probably not as bulky and convoluted (read: cheap) as mine :P
