Try not to feel inadequate if it's not all logistical. I mean, how do you wash your hair, complete the housework, and carry home the groceries with an 18lb baby in a sling? The point is not to get bogged down with the practicalities, as they work out differently for every individual, but to embrace the spirit of the book.
Books like this have helped me to feel proud about bringing my 20 month old into bed for a night feed. Whereas 'normal' baby manuals can generate a sense of failure in our type of parents.
Babies need closeness, and here you will find lots of help in protecting your baby's closeness to you.
I only wish I hd read it before giving birth.
It covers a lot of ground and I especially liked the quotes from real parents on how they dealt with the issues. In each section of the book, there is a very useful list of sources (web sites, books, periodicals, shops, newgroups, email lists, etc) where you can find further information on that topic.
Everyone should be made aware that this type of parenting is a realistic option. This book would make a fabulous gift to a new parent or parent-to-be.
Apart from being the single most comprehensive guide to attachment parenting, it is one of the few general childcare books that discusses the concerns of the entire family - mother, father, grandparents and all. Babies do not grow up in a vacuum, and _Attachment Parenting_ recognizes that and addresses many of the questions of the people who together form a baby's world.
It is also remarkable for the quality and quantity of the outside resources it recommends (websites, books, catalogues, mailing lists, real life support groups, etc.).
The style is clear and accessible, the numerous quotes from real parents as well as parenting experts are enlightening, and the issues this book raises are timely and relevant. I can't think of a better general resource for any new parent.
