Kingsley: 7-2-14 Attachment

I have never been so confronted with confusing, conflicting advice as I am now, with our two month old in what seems like a permanent attached stronghold, hanging from my breast. Don’t get me wrong, I am completely at ease with Kingsley clinging onto me by his gummy latch, and want nothing more than to nurture a close emotional bond with our baby. So what is best practice for providing only goodness for baby?

We really have no idea, truth be told, but as parents, Erroll and I have ditched all the theories and practices of child rearing for our very own brand of love-giving. I am completely and utterly devoted to the cutest little human on God’s green Earth and am one with Erroll who feels the same on the following ways of bringing up baby:

  • Breastfeed King with love, and as he demands it; not when its convenient for me;
  • Respond to the boy’s cries with sensitivity; all he’s doing is trying to communicate;
  • Nurture with a sensitive touch: massages, baths, baby wearing too;
  • Co-sleep in the family bed, all together snugly: Erroll, Alice and baby in the middle;
  • Reach balance in family, work and social lives, including doing something for ourselves a individuals every day!
  • Keep the spark alight, as husband and wife. King will know we love each other soon enough.
