Personal experience with special needs children
I practice "gentle / attachment parenting" with my son including co-sleeping. As mentioned, my parenting style is gentle parenting! And if it suited you I would continue that with your precious lil ones! I´m all for hugs etc (once instigated by the child)

I go to play centres and parks spending as much playtime outside as I can! I fully support child led play and where possible follow their lead!

Having done years of childminding in younger years, being the eldest of 3 and an aunt down the way with 4 kids who were always together I have experience of that but also of being a mom! I cherish kids, always have and love their playful ways and how they figure things out!

Should you have any queries or questions, please don´t hesitate to contact me!
