    Attachment parenting mums out there?

    Are there any attachment parenting mums out there, bed sharing, still breastfeeding on demand past 1 year and so child focused that you don't have time to socialize even when you are with other mums? Looking for some support/friendship from like-minded mums and AP playmates for my 13 month toddler.

    Hi there!
    I'm due June 1 with my first baby and am planning on doing attachment parenting.

    I didn't set out to follow attachment parenting, but sort of fell into what you describe naturally. My daughter is 15 months, would love to meet up sometime.

    Didn't really think of myself that way, but when you put it in those words then yes I do fit the profile. I co- sleep my 22 month old (Totally against CIO) and don't plan to stop anytime soon, breastfed till I was pregnant with our second but did it on demand for almost 14 months and no I haven't been out after 7 pm for the last 2 years almost.

    My super high need boy is 15m and I am a super tired AP mom. But I guess you just get used to it after a while. I was living in hell before he turned one but things have gotten better these days.

    ?'m still breastfeeding and co-sleeping with my 12.5 month old and would be happy to meet with others doing similar. But I do have a helper since 2 months ago and can get away for a few hours a day at the moment which makes things much easier.

    Wow, amazing! I am really happy to hear that I am not alone. I also did not set out to do AP but fell into it naturally like Nino. And like Geomum, I haven't been out past 7pm in 13 months and don't see it happening anytime soon. Do you all know other AP mums like yourselves? I have yet to meet a mum here who hasn't done some form of CIO (which I also would never do) and I'm the last one in my group who is still breastfeeding. I'd love to meet up with any or all of you. How is this Saturday (morning or early afternoon)??? If the weekend isn't good, how about Monday or Tuesday morning (Feb 1/2) or Wednesday afternoon (Feb 3)?

    Weekdays would be better for me. Also have not been out past 7pm yet for over a year and don't see how I can for the foreseeable future!

    Monday morning would be good for me. But where would we meet with the little ones? I'm in Kowloon, are you all on HK island?
