    Same for my friends IRL majority use/used CIO or CC but I do see more APing online because as someone else said it's what I seek out.

    Default Parenting 'labels'

    Just because you don't see yourself as AP doesn't mean your not responsive, I'm not saying that at all. You don't like labels that's cool we don't need to use them but saying I am saying your not responsive because you don't call yourself AP is a bit mixed up.

    I hope that makes sense!
    No it does, and thanks for your response!

    I think some of us non-APs get a bit defensive when AP is described as being responsive, as it implies that we are not. But i get what you're saying. I agree CIO is totally unresponsive!

    I agree. I think people think I'm raising a spoilt brat by "giving in" to a 9 month old!
    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.
