Like every parent, I instantly became obsessed with my child the minute she was born. After nine months of being convinced I was going to parent "the French way," I melted into a pile of goo as soon as I laid eyes on my daughter, and a lot of the things I wound up doing (and still do) would likely fall into the "attachment parent" category -- something I barely heard of before she was born. Nursing was no walk in the park for me, and we stopped co-sleeping after I brought her into my bed one night and woke up to see that the sheet had crept up over her head (and that we both slept better in separate spaces), but most other things I did could probably be classified as AP. I wore her pretty much everywhere we went; there was never a television on in the house; and I basically just sat and stared at her when she was awake.
But now that I have a running, bouncing, mess-making toddler who can't be left alone for a minute, I'm all ... I could have gotten so much done when she was immobile!
