I was born 1978 and I nursed until I was 4-ish, and my first 2 years of nursing I shared mom with my brother. He was born in 1976 and nursed until he was 4-ish as well. We both weaned ourselves. We also coslept until we were big enough to wrestle over who got to sleep in the middle. My mom and dad were model attachment parenters, although mom says she didn't know of the actually philosophy of AP, but it was just what felt right to her. What a great mom and dad I have. So does AP work? I like to think we turned out well!! Although my bro and I have put my folks through the typical teenage hell, as well as other mental strains and anguish, my mom always says that she knows they did a good job and raised us right; and that she knows this when she sees how loving and nurturing my bro and I are with our own kids. (how was that for a run-on sentence!) Wow, now that I have written all that down and reread it, I want to call my mommy and say thanks for being so fabulous!
