Attachment Parenting

Attachment parenting is something that focuses on the nurturing and evolving connection with parents. As the word ‘attachment’  defines attachment of a child towards the parents.

In other words we can say that it is a kind of philosophy that helps to promote attachment between parents and a child.

Origin of attachment parenting


The origin of attachment parenting is not new. It was first coined by American Pediatrician William Sears.

He coined this term in 1982. He believed that it is the most important part of the parenting that must happen in the upbringing of a child.

Attachment parenting is not that tough. It requires attention, love and caring between parents and their child. We are here to tell you seven main principle that will define attachment parenting in most simplest way.

1. Feed with love and respect

What is the best way to show your love and affection towards a new born baby? It is breastfeeding.

Brest feeding is the purest way, by which a mother shows her love and affection towards a child. Breast feeding is also considered as the optimal way to satisfy a child’s mental and physical needs.

This is one of the main reasons why breastfeeding is considered s the greatest of of attachment parenting.

2. Response with love and sensitivity

As a parent, your touch is something that will mean a lot to your child. There is no shadow of doubt in it.

As an innocent child, your baby doesn’t know the ins and outs of the world. Your touch is something that meet their needs of touch, affection, security and a feeling of belonging with their parents.

This is why there is no rocket science to figure out that, a child figure out their parents faster than anything else in the world.

4. Mutual feelings

Feeling is something that defines your relationship with anyone and in case of attachment parenting, it is a must thing.

How do your child knows that only mother will feed you? How do you your mother know that you are hungry, once you started crying?

It is because of the genetic and emotional feelings we share with our parents.

5. Night sleep

Parents are the one one which their kids rely. When a baby born, he/she doesn’t know what is day, what is night.

It is their parents who introduced them to this environment and to this ecosystem where everything works as a system.

Kids rely on their parents to take care of them in the dark, and to regulate their emotions.

6. Positive learning
