propaganda for attachment parenting
I saw an interview with what I would term a "fundamentalist" attachment parenting devotee. In the interview she went through the baby store and gave all the baby items names like 'mommy substitute' - pacifier, 'lazy mommy' - swing...and the one referred to in this photo...'the baby prison.' She was of the opinion that a baby should be with you all the time, in your bed sleeping with you or on you hip in a sling. I am not saying that this point of view is wrong. Different strokes for different folks and all that, but in our family we quite enjoy the 'baby prison!'
