Attachment Parenting – Worth Considering?

I’m on a roll with the parenting posts at the moment and finding it really nice, after two years, to reflect on our personal experience and “style” as parents. Luckily both hubby and I are on the same wavelength with our parenting style and outlook (well so far, so good anyways. So this week I thought I’d talk about something that some of you may have heard of, but some of you may not…attachment parenting.

Attachment Parenting – what is it?

I won’t go into it in great depth, but you can read a good synopsis here, but in a nutshell it’s a method of parenting that promotes a strong bond between parent and child, empathetic response and physical closeness and touch. All those lovely things.

As with everything on my parenting journey, I never set out thinking “ooh I’m going to practice a bit of attachment parenting today”…nope, I just sort of winged-it, worked out what felt right for us as a family and went with what came naturally. It’s only when I was recommended a book to read about attachment parenting, that I realised I related to the method and was indeed utilising it naturally. I mean anything that states “…mothers [are] advised to raise their infants according to their own common sense and with plenty of physical contact” is just fine by me!

For me and hubby actually, we’re both tactile, touchy-feely, cuddly, affectionate people. It made sense that we’d be like this with Flo and our responses to her needs, would be led from that. So when she cries, we cuddle and comfort her, when she’s upset, we kiss her and let her know we’re there, when she’s poorly, we snuggle up and co-sleep, spooning. I love it and she loves it.Continue reading

5 Simple Ways to Renovate Your Bathroom on a Budget

With our recent home renovation project, we ended up with 3 bathrooms to renovate, fit-out and decorate. Our focus was obviously the main family bathroom, which the bulk of the budget went on, so we had to be clever with the other two bathrooms and look at ways to make them amazing, on a budget. I did a lot of research of products and techniques to bring our 2nd and 3rd bathrooms in without breaking the bank…
