Attachment Parenting

Dr. Sears

Attachment parenting is a philosophy which promotes strong emotional bonds between parents and their infants.  Dr William Sears, an American paediatrician coined this term over 25 years ago. 

Together with his wife Martha Sears, a registered nurse, they raised 8 children using this philosophy and have gone on to write and co-write 40 plus books, many educating parents on the philosophy.  

3 of the Sears children have also gone on to become paediatricians and two are currently working in practice with their father.

What does it mean to be attached to your child?  Could it be that you have naturally developed an ‘attached’ style of parenting and want to know what to say to the critics around you?  Or are you wanting to develop this parenting style and would like to learn more about it’s benefits?  Many of the books by The Sears Family will lead you in the right direction. 

This is an approach based on responsive parenting whereby you take your cues from your baby.  As with any approach it is important to see it as an approach and not just a set of rules to follow.

Dr. Sears notes that there are 7 attachment tools, known as the Baby B’s:

  • Birth Bonding
  • Breastfeeding
  • Baby wearing
  • Bedding close to Baby
  • Belief in the language value of your baby’s cry
  • Beware of baby trainers
  • Balance

The Sears Family have written books for their parenting library and books for their children's library.  My son loves the potty book they have written for children and can really relate to the pictures as there is a baby being breastfed like he was and one who is sleeping in their parents bed as he does sometimes too.  See books from both the parenting library and the children's library below.

attachment parenting The Vaccine Book: Making the Right Decisionfor Your Child (Sears Parenting Library)

The Vaccine Book is very readable. Dr. Sears writes in language a layperson like me can easily understand.He goes through each of the 12 standard vaccine choices and answers the same questions for each vaccine-preventable disease: Is it common? Is it serious? Is it treatable? When is the vaccine given? How is the vaccine made? What ingredients are in the final solution?
