Parenting is an ever evolving journey that comes in many forms, where one method that works for a family is not necessarily something that will be effective in another. There are many types of parenting style – from Helicopter and Authoritative to Permissive and Involved.
Then comes Attachment Parenting – a style where parents have been doing it naturally for as long as humans have existed. It’s an approach to raising infants with the aim to promote a close relationship between the baby and its parents by methods such as feeding on demand and letting the baby sleep with its parents.
Regardless of your parenting approach, it is of utmost importance for the method to fit your family values – as long as it feels right for you and your children. We got into action and summarised a list of items that attachment parents will love:
> The First Years Close and Secure Infant Sleeper
This gives baby a soft little “nest” of his own while keeping him close by. You can feed, soothe, monitor and bond throughout the night with the reassurance that your little one is snug, secure and safe – thanks to the Airflow design that allows air to circulate around baby. It is easily portable too for on-the-go convenience.
Welcoming baby gently into the world, the best-selling Cocoonababy provides him with a comforting, womb-like space to make the transition to the outside world as smooth as possible. The semi-foetal position, in which baby is as if contained and in a slightly curved posture, soothes and reassures him. Place baby in the Cocoonababy inside a side cot and sweet dreams you go.
> Ergobaby Four Position 360 Carrier
This carrier is the only carrier you’ll ever need – from nurturing newborn face to face cuddles, progressing to outward connections and exploring the world together. With four carry positions, you can put baby facing you, at the back, hip and outward-facing front carry. The seat width adjusts easily to comfortably transition baby, allowing breastfeeding on the go.
> Akarana Tauawhi Baby Hipseat Carrier
Keep baby close to you while you’re running the errands. The EVA foam padded belt ensures comfort for the wearer while the seat is designed to be tilted 45 degree. Baby can sleep cosily listening to your heartbeat, away from prying eyes with a covered sleeping hood.
> Baba Sling
Designed by a Mum, a Baba Sling allows you to carry in 5 different positions. It’s easy to put on and take off, and comfortable for both parents and babies. Your little one will stay snug throughout the day as they are cradled softly in the cotton hammock of the sling. Perfect for discreet breastfeeding too.
> Ergobaby Natural Curve Nursing Pillow
The Ergobaby Natural Curve Nursing Pillow gives you the enduring support you need to relax, nurse comfortably and bond with baby. It is made from solid foam with a unique contour to help properly position baby tummy-to-tummy at a good height that saves you from slouching. Firm and ergonomically structured, it maintains its shape over time for lasting support.
> Bebe Au Lait Nursing Cover
The one-size-fits-all Bebe au Lait Nursing Cover helps maintain privacy and comfort while nursing on the go. This breastfeeding cover has a patented Rigiflex open neckline which allows proper air flow, and mum and baby to maintain eye contact during breastfeeding. The neck strap is secure and adjustable to hold the cover in place, so you can breastfeed with confidence no matter where you are.
> Skip Hop Zoo Placemat
This fold-and-go placemat for babies and kids is the go-anywhere mealtime solution, with a non-slip surface and built-in loop closure. Just roll the mat up, fold it in half, then wrap the loop around so it won’t unfold in your bag. Made of food-grade, satin-touch silicone, it also has a raised edge to catch spills.
> The First Years Spill Proof Cup
Perfect at home and for when you’re on the road, these cups are durable enough to use over and over, yet affordable enough. With the vibrant colours your child will love, you’ll love the snap-on, valve-free, spill-proof, interchangeable lids that are easy to clean.
> Beaba Training Bib
A bib is a must as it gets really messy when baby learns how to self-feed, especially during the early stages of baby-led weaning. The pocket catches food that falls off the spoon therefore reducing mess. Made of flexible material with wipe-clean surface, it has a soft-tie ribbon and is suitable from 6 months.
