Hi everyone! I found out about this website from a post on another message board, so I surfed around and I love this place!

I have a 10 month old sweet baby boy and an awesome fiance who works very hard so I can stay home with our son. We are both 20.

I'm a breastfeeder and new to cloth diapering. I was'nt even aware of attachment parenting until I had my son. I had never even changed another child's diaper. I kept my distance from children in general because I was told I could never have one due to endometriosis. I'm so in love with my son and being a mother, and I really feel attachment parenting is more suited for us than conventional parenting.

Looking forward to meeting all of you!

Hi - welcome to Mothering! I'd never heard of attachment parenting either before I had kids, but since I've had my kiddos (I have 4), it is definitely the way to go!

A repost of this is what drew me to this site! I hate that for them, those people are just close minded bigots. Grr..
