We’re at week four and these stories of real attachment parenting dads have taken off! People are loving dads getting the accolades they deserve. A great aspect of this series is the lovely stories that the wives have been writing about their significant others. Verbalizing or putting into writing appreciation for one another is such a great thing for each spouse to do for the other, but it is also inspiring and beneficial to be able to read the heartfelt stories of love. Overall, this series has been really positive, so thank you! We have received hundreds of submissions, so if you don’t see your real man of attachment parenting be sure to keep checking back in the following months.
The following submission is from Jake and Laura Kidd.
“wearing Sophia is as natural to me as breastfeeding is to you, I can see the positive affects of it all right in front of us…. this happy, content baby is the perfect advert for it all! Co-sleeping, bathing with her and carrying her is my way of bonding with our daughter, she is part of our family so I don’t see what the big deal is – of course I’m going to want her up here where I can see her, talk to her – show her my world…”
Jake gets home from work late afternoon on week days then after his cup of tea they go for a long walk round the village together, just the two of them. He has done that every day since she was born, whatever the weather – and she loves it. Now when he gets home she drags the sling off the couch or where ever it has been left and passes it to him before reaching up to be put in it.
