Forcing a baby to scream in a carrier it is the opposite of what AP is forcing your baby to comply for your benefits while completely ignoring what they are clearly telling you they dont like. There is nothing responsive about that way of parenting.
Im struggling with a baby who wants to be carried. Not worn. Not in the ergo, sling or wrap. Screams in the pram. Loses her head in the car till shes gasping for air. Only wants to be carried in MY arms (just me)
So my baby agrees - no need for devices. Lol. But omg I cant go out.without her being distressed
As for breast feeding. I need Three things. Left breast. Right breast. Baby. Done

I've had a PM and a few comments here saying 'you don't do AP, you never breast fed' after responding to AP threads. AP is just my natural parenting style, the label fitted later. It's not a check list thing at all.

I agree regarding your comment too - I actually had never even heard of AP before my first son was born. I was first introduced to the term several months after his birth and I realised that it was how I parented. I still don't really like labels, but it just happens to be what I do and the philosophy aligns with me perfectly

SAB, like me you have an older child and personally these things just weren't as out there when we had kids as they are now days.
Yes I had a carrier for DD but I also simply learnt to do things one handed as that was the done thing 9 years ago. I'm sure all these fancy things where available, they just simply weren't as available as they are now.
If I was to have another child now I'd feel so overwhelmed with all the things available cause with DD I just had the basics and it worked for us.
It wasn't until reading up on here about attachment parenting I realised its what I've always done with DD, to me it was simply being an in-tune mother and responding to my child's needs.

But oh how much easier life would have been if she went in something!
