We were an AP (attachment parenting) family before I knew the term. We just did what felt right for us. I held Princess all the time. I sure wish I had known about slings and other wraps back then. It would have saved my arms and my back.
I occasionally received criticism for this choice. In fact, one day, a stranger told me that the reason Princess didn't crawl was because I held her too much. I wish I could have seen her a few months later, because Princess walked at 10 1/2 months.
We hadn't intended to co-sleep before Princess was born, but that is what we did from the moment she was born. Yes, she slept on me in the hospital. We should have skipped the crib purchase and spent the money on the glider/rocker.
Princess is 5 1/2 and we still co-sleep. We will continue until she is ready to move into her own room. It works well for us. I often turn to look at her and just watch her sleep, amazed at how beautiful she is and I feel so blessed that she is my daughter.
