My Best Birth Supports This Emotional Life Campaign

This Emotional Life , airing January 4 – 6, 2010, is a two-year outreach campaign examining the science behind our emotions. Spearheaded by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen's Vulcan Productions, the project includes a three-part, nationally broadcast series on PBS in early 2010, a dynamic and content-rich website, a national outreach campaign, and educational toolkits created to support two topics within this series we felt required additional action- military families and early childhood attachment. The attachment toolkit is designed to help parents develop the skills necessary for interaction during a child’s first year of life. Research shows that early childhood attachment is the single most preventative measure to support the mental health of another human being. We are working with communities throughout the country to help launch a very exciting viral Pay it Forward campaign that promotes awareness of early childhood attachment.

This is great, I hope am not too late to TiVo this series. I have been questioning traditional parenting since the day my baby was born in my bed and my instincts told me she should stay there with me each night. I never once thought I would raise my child in the attachment parenting manner and I didn't even know there was a name to it. All I knew is that I was listening to my heart and my child's ways of communicating and responding in a way that made us both feel good about ourselves. Since learning that I was practicing attachment parenting I starting reading up and seeing the benefits. Now all of those traditional parents around me may think I'm spoiling or coddling my daughter, I know in my heart I am doing what is best for her. I hope this series sheds some light for those naysayers. Thanks.
I was unable to have my baby to sleep in my bed, I was too scared to roll on top of him, slap him in my sleep or such, I'm a heavy sleeper and move a lot in bed so the idea of having the baby in bed with me was really scary to me, since 16 months and now that he is 18 months I love to have him to sleep with us after the first morning feed, he wakes up in his bed, daddy gets him and brings him to our bed where I feed him, then we go back to sleep all together, it is not always but sometimes as some other times he wakes up very late and therefore is no longer sleepy afterwards so we are all up.
