Attachment Parenting, Extended Nursing and Unschooling

Posted: Updated:

Mayim Bialik is not your typical Hollywood TV star.  She may be the only "celebrity" who speaks out in favor of attachment parenting.  AP is known for a back-to-nature style of parenting — "baby-wearing" and "co-sleeping" and literally meeting your infant's needs by being attached them as much as humanly possible.

She's still nursing her 3 1/2 year old, though she recently blogged about weaning him from the three-to-four feedings he was having every night.   When I ask her how people react she says: "I know it's unusual, but when you surround yourself with other women who are intelligent, educated, loving, have incredible children who they nursed well past three and a half, I can see that I don't get to say what's right for someone else."
