Did you have any tendencies of AP when you were younger?
like if you babysat for someone else?
I remember after Serina, my cousin was a baby, I used to baby sit her ALL the time..
and when she was very young i remember my aunt going out and telling me that if serina woke up i had to just let her CIO (i was about 10 or 11?)
I never did let serina CIO, I always went and gave her a paci and settled her down
It broke my heart hearing her cry all alone so no way i'd sit and let her do that!

Since I had my first baby at 16, yes I was AP as a teenager.
I did babysit my cousins when I was younger probably around 12 years old. And now that I think about it I was AP with them too. I co-slept with them when I had them overnight and I treated them as I do my own now.
Even now when I babysit on weekends I do AP with her as well. It's just my nature I guess.
