I agree with above...AP seems to manifest itself differently with each child's personality. If your DD can fall asleep alone, you may just want to allow her to do that. Maybe still have an intimate routine before naps and bedtime (book, song, cuddle and kiss) and then just lay her down. I may be wrong, so totally disregard the following if so, but I feel as though you may be wondering if she doesn't need you to fall asleep because she is not attached. Or, if she...
I left DD once for 24 hours when she was 10 months and still co-sleeping and nursing (I was a SAHM with her at the time). Prior, she was accustomed to taking the occasional bottle of EBM from DH, but not during the night. But she did take the bottle at night, slept with just DH, and otherwise did fine while I was away (was I maybe a little insulted? Yes! ). But, thinking back, I am fairly certain I knew she would be fine beforehand, just judging by her personality. I...
I wanted to reiterate this link, SO fantastic and an oft-overlooked issue in modern APing. http://www.hobomama.com/2009/03/pare...need-more.html My DH and I did an overnight away from my DD when she was 15 months. My sister (who actually lived with us and DD for the first 11 months of her life) and my mom stayed with DD. She was no longer BF very often and was fine being put to bed and co-sleeping with with them. I did a solo overnight away when DD was maybe 10...

Sigh...I miss NYC!

I've pumped in the car as well as in a bathroom stall (at train station) with a hand pump. Not pretty, but worked fine in a pinch.

Ah, I came here looking for something like this...outlets are the bane of my existence right now! Thanks!
At least 4 months here, I think. Might have been longer. ETA: And when we did DTD, it was defo more for DH than me! I probably could have gone longer

Every single one of them is going to tell you that you are doing something wrong. It is like following a checklist.

I also use backpack style, but I have a friend whose shoulders are sloped or narrow or something and the backpack style doesn't work very securely for...
