I'm not 100% AP, but I have been lurking for awhile and really like what I read on this board.

My name is Kim(31), DH is Andrew(37), and we have one daughter Gabriella who is 14 months. I was not able to breastfeed due to getting large cysts on my breasts that tend to get infected and I don't baby wear, but we do co-sleep a lot of nights, or she sleeps in our room in her playpen next to the bed. We did baby led weaning, we don't CIO, and I am a firm believer in gentle discipline. I hope you don't mind me being here, I look forward to posting and getting to know everyone!

Welcome! I'm Nicole, and my DD is Eleanor. Are you from the November 2011 DDC? Your name looks familiar... I didn't post there too much, but Eleanor was born in Nov 2011.

Welcome!!! Gentle discipline is huge and probably one of the biggest things that define AP to me personally (as my DD gets older especially). Just trying to bond with your child and treat them gently, in whatever way best works for you.

Very glad you are here! I think you can be AP even if you don't do some AP things. Mostly it's about a mindset. Like even though you didn't breastfeed, I bet you still fed with love. That's AP. And even though you didn't baby wear, I bet you had lots of contact and cuddles with your kid. That's AP, too! <3 Please stick around!
Thank you Jaidynsmum for the beautiful siggy!
