    Did anyone watch this last night??
    I know this could turn into a massive argument/debate... thats not really what i want!

    I would like to know what you thought of the programme.
    And what you do to be an "attached parent"

    I agree with that!
    The woman who didn't use nappies with the babies, they had to guess when they needed to go!!
    With the poop on the floor! yuck!

    I couldn't do that - but i'm a free choice person....

    The sex with baby in the bed is wrong!!!

    There was a couple on last night that said they get asked how they do it lots and they said "we don't - we find other places"

    I intend on boobyfeeding but not until they're 6 or something, ouch teeth!! haha!!!

    Ok I will share my view, here's MY view:

    I bottle feed Rebecca, only because bf was agony, I knew I had to stop when I got blisters on my nips and they were bleeding. I haven't looked back, Rebecca has not suffered in any way thru being on the bottle. She is infact a thriving little girl who is on the 95th centile height and weight.

    That programme, well they are extremists, but parts of it made me sick, like bf a 5 year old, there is no need, it holds no nutritional value to them at tht age. I would never of BF Rebecca any longer than 9-12 months, a personal choice.

    As for humping whilst ur buba is in bed, minging, I feel bad when Rebecca is sleeping in her cot in my room! :shock:

    Attachment Parenting-again positives and negatives, surely these children aren't being taught independence and will grow up reliant on their parents? Just a view..... :!:

    Well done for trying boobyfeeding!
    I will be trying, but like you say it has no nutritional value past then!

    And how can they be independant when they're permanently attached to their mum & dad?

    I want to bf, and i intend on using re-usable nappies & wipes... and having a mai tai.

    I won't be the extremes that they showed last night... the pooping on the floor was just ewww!

    I think some parts of AP is good to do like carrying you baby, but not all the time. Id still like to use the pram for shopping lol.

    Im not sure about breast feeding, i dont know if i would really feel comfortable doing it even in my own home. I will see how i feel at the time when i need to decide but i think i will likely be going towards formula feeding (please dont shoot me lol)

    haha @ please don't shoot me....
    Everyone does it their own way.

    If i can't bf then i'll be hormonal and have a cry, but formula works too! :)

    I brought a silvercross pram i have every intention of using it sometimes!!! haha!!!

    lol, ive def every intention of using my trenton! Ill probably use the mei tai for if we go anywhere that doesnt have pram friendly busses or if we go up to the fields with Bruce.

    Dont know if i linked you but Joeyslings are now selling something called babylegs to go with the carriers. Theyre like leg warmers for babies, soo adorable!!

    The slings are good, but babies love nothing more than sitting in their buggy watching everthing and everyone as u walk along the street...It's all about learning for them, and I feel in a sling it's quite restrictive...

    Just my view ladies, not facts- love you's all! :lol:

    I wish Id used a sling earlier on but Ella is 21lbs npw and I have a bad back as it is!!!!!! Will definatly ger one for my next but not INSTEAD of a pram! :shock:

    I tried BF and only lasted 2 weeks I also had sore nipples that were bleeding, honestly they were so abd I thought they were gonan fall off---ouch! If I was sucessful with it prbably would have BF til about 6 months, but who knws until your in that situation maybe longer. But I definayl wouldnt do it to 5 years!!!!! about 12 months max.

    and the pooing thing.......dont even go there, that was just pointless and no long term bebefit to the child!

    Can completely understand not carrying ella!!
    And she loves her pram anyways, taking in all those sites!!

    Think what you said about the pooing thing is so true... the no long term benefit bit!! blergh!! May as well just tape the potty to the kids a*se!!!
