Read with caution
I enjoyed the book. I'm a teacher, nanny and mom and I agree with the author in many aspects but sometimes her decisions sounded insane to me. As all parenting books, it's very preachy. I don't care how many times she tries to save face but her book is as preachy as they come. I like a lot of aspects of what is called attachment parenting but I don't label myself. I'm a loving mother/caregiver trying to make my own well informed and intuitive decisions. I wish you'd take this book, or any parenting book/advice in that same light - get informed, reflect, take what you think works for you and your family and relax and have fun. Parents are making themselves crazy and making their kids crazy with all this anxiety.
Such a wonderful and empowering book on motherhood, parenthood and following your instincts. I love how she shows that all attachment parenting is not identical but equally valuable. While we may not do everything each chapter leaves something to be learned. Highly recommended.
Loved This Book!
By Momma of two little girls
This was a quick and enjoyable read! I identified with this book on so many levels, but ironically wasn't familiar with "attachment parenting" until I read this book.. I have just been doing what "comes natural" .. Which proves her point entirely, I guess. Would definitely recommend this book; lots of great info without any "preachiness"... Very impressed!
Be Open Minded and You will Enjoy
Beyond the Sling is smart and intriguing. No matter your preconceived notions about parenting or attachment parenting, you will surely take something away from this book. There is indeed something for all. This book challenges new parents to step out of conventional roles and comforts to establish deeper and meaningful relationships with their babies. Beyond the Sling has allowed me to throw a few more valuable tools in my parenting toolbox that happen to apply to my beliefs that I didn't even know we're options before! The author does her best to try and relate to people different from herself, I think she still comes off out of touch. The parents she describes that apparently live her lifestyle as well don't actually seem that different from her. I would have liked to see more of a dollar by dollar breakdown of how these people are making attachment parenting work. Unless you lived a simple life before, one would have some major work to do to get to the point of time she is at in her life. All in all this book is worth the read, it's quick and an excellent reference.
