    Sorry for venting, But I am also making sure I subscribe to this thread
    If it helps,all three of my bubbas (and soon to be 4),have all been c.sections..
    All breast feed for 18months,they all had Reflux so thank god for the hug a bub as i wore them every where and i also co slept with them all!!! Actually most nights still sleep with my 2.5 year old!

    I am also a big fan of baby wearing, co-sleeping, and I BF DS3 for 12 months.

    These things are about trying to be in tune with your baby and giving them what they need. Being an attentive and loving parent and caesarean birth are not mutually exclusive.

    Yep I agree with lamb jam!! I had two elective c sections and didn't breastfeed also , both due to personal issues . However I spend half the night sleeping on the couch with my two babies or in their rooms with them , ( can't risk co sleeping as I have two cats that sleep on the bed, I won't lock them out of what's been their bedroom for eight years !!) , wore my 17 months old 24/7 as i do now with my 3 month old and in all other ways regarding my responsiveness , beliefs , how I raise my babies etc would probaly fall under the attachment parent category mind you I didn't bf or have a vb . ..... and I actually hate even writing that sentence as I hate labels for the way you parent it is just silly but I really just didn't know another way to get across what I was trying to say which is that having a c section by choice , or for whatever reason in no way shape or form has any bearing on the way you parent / bond and develop attachment with your children !!

    Of course you can still do all those other things while still having a c section !!

    Good luck ! Xoxo

    It's been playing on my mind that someone might misinterpret what I wrote above, so just to clarify... I don't mean to say that "attachment patenting" is the only way to be in tune with your baby or fulfill their needs; simply that things like baby-wearing and co-sleeping are some people's way of achieving those goals. Of course there are other, equally valid and loving ways too.

    Phew, I feel better now.
