BUT ap does not stand for "absolutely perfect" it's not the be all, end all, is all. It's just one way of looking at things. And within that there is a scale, some would say that using a pram and cot is "not ap" (though anyone who thinks so and put their baby in a car seat hasn't thought that one through )
And I think APing as a point of discussion is much more inclusive than exclusive. But let's say posted a question in the AP section "my baby isn't sleeping etc etc etc" you are going to get an answer that might suit what you are looking for. I stumbled upon ap looking for ways to get jasper to sleep that didn't involve putting him down and walking away.
Which is totally fine. It's not AP = good. Not ap = bad.
And I agree a lot with AP ideals, but I'm not sure I "am ap" because I do time outs with my older child (as in put him in a spot for X number of minutes no matter what because this works for us) and I do try controlled crying/comfort with my baby, and I have actually started baby in daycare when I don't "need" to knowing full well she will hate it.
So I don't think I can title myself AP. But I certainly like the principles of ap.
