I have very recently come across Attachement Parenting and I'm so relieved - it's everything I've been doing (or being trying to do) because its what feels intuitively right.
Annoyingly, up until now I've been fighting my natural instincts with a lot of things - so putting baby down on play mat, trying to stimulate her, feeling guilty for be sharing and generally carrying her all the time!
Now I've discovered baby wearing I've introduced the sling. Problem is my 12 week old daughter doesn't like it! She tolerates both the "flex" from mamas and papas an the bjorn fine if I'm out and about. Very occasionally she'll be okay at home, but only when I'm walking about. Mostly she struggles an thrashes in it. wont let me sit down with her, unless its specifically to play with her. she needs to be constantly walked. this is obviously tiring, but it means we cant eat as a couple at the same time. do i just need to accept this is how it is for now?
Part of me thinks I should persist, but I feel I'm not being sensitive to her needs to do this - I don't want to make her cry! Is it too late - have I missed the baby-wearing boat?
