Just going by my mothers group out of 10, 2 had dream babies that sleep wonderfully, 6 have/are doing some training involving CC and myself and another are more natural parenting
I was reading about AP last night on here as well and it also occured to me that the description matched much of the way I parent... and it left me thinking, isn't this pretty much the way we all do it, give or take a few things? While I coudn't bf, I definitely soothe bubs and never allow her to cry beyond maybe 20 seconds.. I usually bring her into bed with me half way through the night and she sleeps with us after her feed. In 6 months I have never been away from her or had her babysat, but I never even thought about it, it's just the way things are. I too did not know that if you did things a certain way you were XYZ type of parent.
I just do what FEELS RIGHT/NATURAL for US. Don't we all?
Honestly in my opinion, these labels are stupid, made up rubbish.

Thanks I'm glad I got what I was trying to say across, I'm not very good at it sometimes!
