Child Led Parenting: Our Main Philosophy for How We Parent

Before becoming a parent I think most people have ideas about how they want to do it. They might have a preference over breast or bottle, whether they want to co-sleep or not, and even as far as how they might want to enforce discipline. But throughout our entire journey thus far as parents, one thing has remained a strong constant. We’ve been as child led as possible. So this post is going to be a bit about my philosophy as a parent, and essentially my take on what child led parenting actually is. Child Led Parenting: Our Main Philosophy…

I’m going to talk about how attachment parenting can help with postnatal depression. What is Attachment Parenting?

Is Co-Sleeping Safe? – We Do It and We Love It

An article, posted on the Daily Mail, has stated that “three babies are accidentally dying every WEEK while sleeping in their parents’ bed with 141 fatalities in the past year alone.” With a damning, misleading headline like that, I thought I’d look at the question “is co-sleeping safe?” Is Co-Sleeping Safe? It’s very important to note how things are worded in this article when it comes to asking “Is co-sleeping safe?”. Take the following as an example: ‘The chance of sudden death goes up when bed-sharing if a parent smokes, has drunk alcohol or taken drugs or is very tired.” IF.…
