    Post Attachment Parenting and Dads

    Yep, it's me again

    I've decided to collate some information relating to DADS and attachment parenting. I think many aspects of parenting can often be seen as something which just the mother is strongly involved in, when in fact the father plays a huge role as well - even in terms of breastfeeding. Whether you're an AP Dad, an expecting Dad who is interested in AP, a Mum wanting to share info with your other half, or even just curious, come and have a browse through these articles Feel free to add more to the thread.

    Co-sleeping with baby: attachment parenting for Dads (I particularly love the tip this author gives to avoid being kicked in the 'family jewels' while co-sleeping LOL)

    Co-sleeping (article from a male POV - Dr William Sears)

    Fathers and AP

    The chemistry of attachment (this is a very interesting article which examines how hormones play a role in the bonding process of both women AND men. I have read many articles focusing on the role of hormones in women, so it was fascinating to read how males release Oxytocin etc as well to assist in the bonding process).

    AP Fathering (Dr Sears resource)

    Dads can help breastfeed too

He is a wonderful father and I believe this has made his parenting journey blossom (although he would hate the word 'blossom' being used about him lol)
    I find it surprising too. FOB adores wearing both of the boys
