Anyone see it today?? Thought? I was impressed! Nobody said anything too clueless and most of the myths of AP were dispelled. I loved the older lady in the audience who talked about nursing her daughter till she was 4 1/2. Overall, I was happy with the way they portrayed AP.

Is there a way to see it if it was missed? I'm curious to watch it now...

His website page shows the recent Time magazine article about AP. Was that a focus of the show?

Someone mentioned not liking what he had to say about cosleeping/SIDS.  What was the focus on that? I am looking for the show, but haven't found it yet.

i don't know how/where to see it online, sorry. 


they did speak to jamie-lynne (cover model for Time) and she was able to get a few good words in about how she felt the photo they chose for the cover wasn't a good portrayal of child led weaning or even how the rest of the photo shoot was. 


they did talk about co-sleeping but no one said anything too negative, and Dr. Jay Gordon and Mayim Bialik (author of Beyond the Sling) were able to talk about he benefits of safe cosleeping without any backlash or disagreeing comments from audience members etc. 


the ONLY "expert" there to give the "other" side of the debate (if you can call it a debate) was a child physiologist, but even she didn't say anything too negative about AP. she just said there wasn't evidence that kids raised with AP turn out less independent or "harmed" in any way from that parenting style.
