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!
