~*~ Introductions and Pictures ~*~

:wavehello: My name is Tracy and I'm a SAHM to my dd McKinley (9-7-99) and my ds Reece (9-5-01). I also have a son who is 20 yo Blum 3 (He was born 6 weeks preterm on my 20th birthday Blum 3 ) I've been married to my dh Rick for almost 7 years (Anniversary 1-18-97) and we've been together 11 years now. We had difficulty conceiving our first child. It took over 18 months and a lot of stress and fertility workups but was definitely worth the wait. We conceived Reece our first try :mrgreen:

I never knew the term AP Parenting existed way back with my first son. I realized years later that I indeed was an AP parent. I do not believe there is a certain criteria or set of rules that makes one AP or not. Being an AP parent, in my opinion, is listening to your instincts (or Mama-heart as I like to call it) and taking cues from your child. I hope this makes sense.

I have breastfed all three of my children and let them self-wean. My oldest son was a little over age 3, my dd was 14.5 months and my son Reece is still an avid breastfeeder. We use cloth diapers, do not vaccinate, and Reece is uncirc'd. (However, I do not believe that these things are necessary to be considered AP nor do I think that parents who do things differently than I do are wrong)

I look forward to getting to know all of you!

Update: wow, it has been a long time since I've read this thread. I see my pics are no longer working so I will post some more this weekend. As far as how things are going, Reece is still an avid breastfeeder, lol! He shows no signs of giving it up. I'm hoping he will in the next year.. sometime during his 4th year. I don't moderate the board anymore but I do lurk here and there. Nice to see the board still going strong!

Here's a recent picture :razz:

I'm Christa, married to Bill and our son Benjamin was born 3 weeks early on 7/17. When I first heard about AP I thought "naahhh... not me" but then I became a mommy. Wink It wasn't long before I decided cosleeping, babywearing, and other elements of AP were really the best thing for DS and me! (Actually the babywearing didn't work out as I hoped... I have no sling and he didn't like the Bjorn as a tiny baby because he couldn't see out of it!)

I was raised in a very un-AP household and as a result I love to snuggle my son and tell him how much I love him. Many aspects of parenting don't come easily to me simply because they're beyond my experience, but that doesn't mean I don't want to learn! I believe there is a happy medium between living in your child's world (like noticing the fascinating pattern of the ceiling fan blades on the white ceiling) and bringing him into your world (foregoing Barney songs for Billie Holliday).

Even though I sometimes have "issues" with how crazy my life has become, I truly believe that having a child has made me a whole person. I am the happiest I've ever been in my life and look forward to sharing my happiness with my boy and any future children we have. (Hopefully at least one more!)

Edited: A much better photo of us, about 12 hours after DS was born:

And my favorite photo of DS:

Looking forward to many more AP conversations here!

I’m Jessie (20) I’m a SAHM to Keelin (2 ½) and Cassidy (6 months). Oh yeah and I’m married to Adam (22) who is currently AD Marines. LOL When Adam comes back home we will resume efforts to conceive baby #3.

I’ve always AP parented though I feel as though I haven’t preformed my best on a few occasions. LOL I believe I pattern my parenting style after how my grandparents raised me. I was always treated as an equal and never talked down to. I think it made me a more productive and mature adult.

I delivered my girls into the world free of pain medicine. Both girls have been BF, unfortunately, Keelin and I only made it to 6 months before we were attacked by a case of Thrush that neither the doctor nor myself could treat, which caused her to wean herself. I refused to allow that to happen with Cassidy and now I’m looking forward to child lead weaning. Also, we use cloth diapers, co-sleep, and wear the girls.

Hi everyone! :wavehello: Thanks for reminding me about this board, Tracy! Whew, I've needed all your help on many occaisions and didn't even think to look here! What a me! LOL

I am a SAHM to my little monkey Jackson (Sept.8th, 01). I remember rolling my eyes :roll: when a friend of mine told me about AP long ago, before the Time of Children, back when I Had No Clue. I remember holding up a pillow while talking to that same friend while she bf her baby. Can you believe after being so naive, I bf my son until he weaned himself at 18 1/2 months? I find it hard to believe myself! HE actually told me my milk was "Gross!" the last time he nursed! That's my boy! LOL I used a sling with him, I bring him everywhere with me, dh and I co-slept with him until he moved into his own room last year and now I just lay down with him until he falls asleep and I'm back with him whenever he needs me during the night. I just don't "get" why we have to be their parents all day long then punch out at 8pm. :dontknow: It just doesn't come naturally to us in this house.

I've always let him lead me to where he wants to go. We're not pushovers, we just don't push! Hey, I like that saying. LOL

I hope to get to know all of you a little better. I know I'll be coming here more often for advice and whatnot because I sure know that while AP is the right way for us, it's not always the easy way and I, for one, need a lot of shoulders to lean on at times! WinkLol Or just ears to whine into from now and then! LOL! Lol

Anyhoo, here we are:

Hi, I'm Sara, this is my family (taken in October at my SIL's wedding, I was 20 weeks pregnant):

Elizabeth will be 2 in May. My DH is an emergency room physician (ie wierd schedule) and I am a stay at home mom. I have a master's degree in biochemistry and worked as a biochemist in the field of medical research up until I got pregnant (about 10 years). We're expecting a son, Francis Lloyd, on February 29th.

And here's Francis in his current location (although I'm even bigger now and still have 7 weeks to go :shock: ):

I didn't know we were attachment parents until I read a Dr. Sears book (although we didn't sling Elizabeth, we held her all the time). I have already purchased slings for both DH and I for when Francis is born and he's totally on board.

Hi all. What beautiful Families you all have. I am Samantha a 27 year old stay at home mom to 1 DD Coral who is 17 months. I have been maried to my DH James for 3 1/2 years. I am originaly from Vancover B.C. but moved to Calgary at age 22. I am an Early Childhood Educator and I specialized in Special Needs and Abused Children. We decided when we had Coral that I was going to stay at home. I guess one could say I am pretty "crunchy". I co-sleep, cloth diaper, Exstended Bfeed with child lead weaning, I wear my babies, recycle everything and use alot of natural products. I don't think one needs to do any of these things to be AP, I just think that AP stands for just that, being an attached parent who listens to there Child's needs and follows there leed. Here is a picture of my family at X-Mass, Coral is Small, DH is Large and I am X-Large. The lady who is Medium in the picture is Coral's Great Aunt. Thanks for letting me share Smile

Hi everyone! I am Missy, SAHM to Jacob (6), Savannah (4), Zachary (2 1/2) and Emileigh (10 days). I am a proud AP mommie. We co-sleep, I LOVE LOVE LOVE My sling, I breastfeed, and I follow the cues of my baby. There is no SCHEDULE in my house..HA HA! We are from Texas and are sooo ready for some cooler weather Wink This will be my last baby so I am a bit sad over that. I will be having surgery on 2/4 to get my tubes tied. *sigh*

Guess that is it for now! I will post a pic of me as soon as I get a decent one..LOL! There are some in my gallery of me though if you'd like to take a look, otherwise here are some pics of my kids!

I am Christy Biggrin I am 29 (soon to be 30). SAHM to 4 kiddos. Quisha (10), Jayson (8 ), Cauner (5), & Jorja (9 months). Quisha is my step-daughter, so I didn't get her till she was 4. But I had Jayson when I was 21. I wore him a lot -- it just made it easier to go places ;). I didn't bf him -- I was in the military and had such odd hours. I was a computer operator and worked crazy hours and wasn't sure about pumping -- had no one to go to about all that stuff. So I just skipped it all together. So when Cauner was born I was all for trying to bf. Unfortunately Cauner was not on board with my plan Sad He outright refused to latch. Again, I had no support even the LLL in town was of no help :? I was so frustrated -- I totally wish PO had been around then. So we tried for 4 weeks and gave up. It broke my heart. So needless to say with one failed attempt under my belt -- I was more insistent to be successful to bf Jorja. Well this time I was successful -- but I guess still being a bit ignorant about it all -- we weaned at 2 months. Jorja was eating non-stop and it would take an hour to feed. So every hour to hour and half she would eat and then when she did it took an hour to do. I totally felt drained and was not getting anything done around the house. It was a beautiful bonding time and I don't regret trying -- I just wish I could have kept at it. But with 4 kids (I was also watching my 2 yo niece at the time) running around wanting to play with mom (Aunt Christy) -- and she's stuck in the chair -- again :roll: -- I felt like I was failing them too.
*sigh* Sorry this wasn't suppose to turn into a novel.

Anyway, while I was pg with Jorja I wanted to look into getting a sling. This is when I stumbled onto the words AP. Now I don't do everything by the book. We use sposies, we no longer co-sleep. Well I sleep with her when she gets up at night -- we snuggle on the couch -- love, love, love her nightly feedings Biggrin I just realized that I was being more *in tune* to her needs and responding as opposed to CIO (which we do on rare occassions, but more often than not if she needs to cry, I just hold her.)

Anyway, that is me. My kiddos are in my siggy. But here is one from Christmas:

Hi! I am Jessica I am married to my dh Todd. We have 2 sons, Joseph who is 3 and Trent who is 4.5mos old. I have recently been introduced to the term AP. I never knew that is what we were...I just thought it was good parenting. We believe that if you listen to your child and assist them with their needs they will be happier. I only bf'ed both ds's for 2wks...regretfully. I was unable to wear Joseph much he was a very large baby and was very independant. He never needed to co-sleep much since he slept through the night from 3wks on. We rocked him or layed with him everynight until he fell asleep until he was 2...and still let him in our bed or lay with him in his bed (whichever he desires) when he needs us. I cloth diapered joseph...but use sposies with Trent.
Trent is a much needier baby and I wear him on occasion, co-sleep when he wants (he definately lets me know).
Dh and I have some different values between us on raising kids which causes a rift in things...I don't believe much in spanking, I strongly believe in child led toilet-teaching, and really identifying between my 3yo's *needs* and *wants*....I fulfill all of his needs but not his "wants"...such as I want to eat cake for lunch. DH fulfills needs and wants and beleives a spank is sometimes necessary. We make it work and do the best we can. I know we can do better and each day we strive to. I strongly believe that it is important to raise our children as happy, secure, loved individuals.
I am glad to have found this board and hope to get to know you all better Smile

I am in a bit of a rush and will post pics soon I promise Smile

Hi, I'm Brandi (24) married to Matt who is ADAF. I'm new to the world of ap. I started my parenting journey very much traditional but found that all it was doing was making me a stressed out, frustrated mom with a stressed our, frustrated daughter. Now that I have made some changes things are running much more smoothly now. I baby wear in a variety of carriers, I have one in the car, in the house and one that stays in the stroller. I'm breastfeeding Bethany and we kind of co sleep-if she wakes at night to eat I just latch her on and go back to sleep. I listen to the cue's the girls send me and have found our house is full of harmony now, it's quite amazing when I think about it.

Here are some pics of Ainsley

Hi, I'm Bridget (31) and I just wandered my way onto this board. I'm not very crunchy (what's the opposite? smooth? Smile ) but I guess I am AP. "I have a little shadow / who goes in and out with me" (Sean, 10 months old) and he is working on sleeping without CIO... right now in fact.

Hello,
I am Laurie

This is my dh, Luc

We are proud AP parents to Elissa (2 and 5 months), it is a silly pic, but it is the most recent

We found AP out honestly be accident, Elissa was a high needs baby and our doctor recommended us to Dr. Sears books. We breastfed on demand until she self-weaned at 7 months, we co-sleep, we believe in gentle discipline and responding to her cues. Elissa nd I have a very special bond, she is my velcro baby, and her and dh are becoming mor and more conected everyday!

Hello everyone! I'm Melissa (26) Married for 6 years and have a 6 yr old son, Nevin. We are currently TTC # 2. Let me start out by saying what adorable kids you all have!! We AP with DS a little. At that time I had never heard of AP. We did co-sleeping (still do..lol), breastfed for only 4 weeks Sad , didnt have a sling...so let's just say we did co-sleeping...LOL. I think that from what I've heard and read that AP is the best way to go. We are definitly going to do that with the next one. I'm not sure how to upload pictues to a post or message board yet. I'l try to figure it out though. But until then there is a pic of my little boy in my sig. I'ts nice to meet everyone! Biggrin

Little late on this maybe? But I wanted to post an intro so no one was wondering who the heck I was when I started posting! LOL!
My name is KD and I just turned 27. I am the lucky mama to two great kids- Haylee (soon to be nine) and Carter (My 3yo dare devil).
I guess my laundry list would be: BFing and EBFing, co-sleeping, baby & toddler wearing, gentle parenting, home schooling (more like unschooling) and cloth diapering (well not any longer - we have a big boy now! LOL!) I also find I am more crunchy now than ever- organic and natural living when I can. I am also on a path for peace (hard one for me with my past but I am trying).
I wasn't always AP though. When my daughter was born I was young (barely) 18 and single. I did what I knew and didn't question. By the time I had my son I just knew better and followed my heart. I question everything now.
My kids are well behaved sweet kids who love to just be kids! I love APing!
We are also TTC a third child and we are in the process of becoming foster parents when we are ready (done the training but now we need to finish our home study). I am hoping to have one more bio baby and then foster adopt one or two more. But nothing is set in stone and I have learned to never make plans when it comes to kids (I was only going to have two BAH!!)!
I hope to get to know you mamas!

What is AP parenting? It sounds interesting (from the posts I've read), but I'm not sure what it is exactly.

Hi there ~ sorry it took so long to get a response to you ... Might be better to start a new thread but AP parenting, the basic concept is meeting your babies needs, ie: things like not letting the baby CIO for hours on end ..

A gentle way of parenting I guess one would say, each person will have their own deffinition to what AP parenting is though Smile

Welcome :wavehello: to our board!!! If you have more questions, please feel free to ask away!! Might be best to start a new thread though Smile

Wow! This thread was started sooo long ago, but I'm going to go ahead and introduce myself and post some piccies anyway :-D!

My name is Liz and my DBF is Ray. We just had our first little girl, Willow, on April 26th! All during my pregnancy, I read about AP and thought it made perfect sense. I wasn't sure how capable I would be, having never been a mother before, but I have found it totally natural. Unfortunately, I am a working mom. I just returned back to work (part time) in the afternoons, so I have Willow in the mornings and Ray has her in the afternoons. So far it's working great.

I'm sure as Willow grows and her needs change, I will be asking lots and lots of questions. I hope that's ok ;-)!

Anyway, here's some pics of us:

Wow, I had never even heard of attachment parenting until I stumbled upon this board, but it is exactly what I do. He never liked the sling (he is a very big boy and I think it cramped him a bit), but he loves the Snugli. He naps with me during the day, and sleeps with us after his first feeding of the night. When I am not with him he sleeps in his bassinet, but I pick him up as soon as he starts to wake up.

This is one of my all-time favourite pics of Jonathan...he was about 6 months old:

Hello everybody! Smile Thought I'd introduce myself.

I'm Alicia and I have one son, Benjamin who was born 9/14/04. Like a lot of you, I kind of just fell into AP because it just felt like the right thing to do. I also think a lot of it stems from the fact that I had some major medical problems after Benjamin was born ~ I had 4 severe hemorrages in 2 weeks and ultimately ended up with a hysterectomy when he was a month old because they could not stop the bleeding. So I think knowing that he will be our only child makes me embrace AP even more. We co-sleep, BF (and plan to let him decide when he's ready to wean) and he spends a lot of his day at home or out in his sling or Snugli. I look forward to hanging out here and getting to know everybody better!

Ingrid, I love that picture of Jonathan with his "I'm a breast man" shirt! Where did you get it??

Hello all! I keep finding new boards to join, it seems. I'm 21 (22 on Christmas day) and gave birth to my first child, my DS Quentin, on Nov. 22. I'm very interested in the AP way, as varied as it can be. DS, DH Luke, and I are currently co-sleeping, and I intend to BF exclusively for 6 months, if at all possible, and continue on from there as long as Quinn is interested. We don't cloth diaper, I have enough trouble with disposables, LOL. But from what I know about AP (which honestly isn't much), it meshes with what feels right in my heart. I look forward to getting to know you all and discussing AP with you.

Hooray! Welcome, Joley! I have found that all the moms on this board are very accepting. They don't make you feel funny just because you choose to not do EVERY single AP thing! I'm expecting my first on 01/31/05, although I have the feeling now that he'll be born on Superbowl Sunday (just in time to reorganize my football-obsessed DH's day!).

I've been posting; but thought I would introduce myself.

I am Tammy (28), married to Jeremie (29). We've been married for 9 1/2 years. I was young when Sydney was born, so I didn't bf. But we did cosleep until she was 4. I bf and coslept with all of the other girls that came later. I have never found a sling that works for me; but I use a snugli all the time. I have made my own baby food with Emma. I never have used cio. We use gentle discipline.

I have been a sahm since sydney was born. i went back to school this fall to major in education. We really need the money and insurance so that dh can start his own business full time.

We want to add to our family in a few years. not sure if it will be biological or through adoption. we are very interested in adopting a special needs child. Maybe both Biggrin

here are my girls

I really did not know this exsisted! Wow, I'll start frequenting this board more often.
My name is Angie and my little one is Clara (really Jeanne Claire). My DH is Jamie (he's an environmental scientist).
We are cosleepers most of the time, but her crib is attatched to my bed so even when she's in it we're together. We are also all about being close and usually at home we're skin to skin. And YES, I plan to let Clara breastfeed till she falls off!!! People complain I never put Clara down and she's gonna be spoiled, so I call her my rotten apple for fun. I don't care if she does get "spoiled", whatever that really means. She'll always know she's safe in Mommy and Daddy's arms and that is so important to me.
It is also very important that we use all environmentally safe products and natural foods. DH is a vegetarian (though he does eat seafood) and I will be again(at least for a while) as soon as Lent starts. I will not give Clara any meat until she's old enough to decide she wants to try it. I want her to be as loving and gentle as possible and it's imperative she treats God's creatures with compassion.
So I guess we're a co-sleeping, breastfeeding, tree-hugging, sling-wearing family. Woohoo!
