I often joke that my parenting choices are based in laziness. Why do I breastfeed? I'm too lazy to bottle-feed or express regularly or prepare the milk or whatnot. Why do I do baby-led weaning? I'm too lazy to puree foods or spoon-feed. Why do I co-sleep? I'm too lazy to get up to breastfeed.
Of course, it's not true that I do these things out of laziness. Breastfeeding isn't always less work than bottle-feeding, I imagine, since I'm always the one doing the feeding (though I have no experience with not breastfeeding, so I could be wrong). But even if these things are less work (and I maintain that BLW and co-sleeping are less work), that's not why I chose them. I chose them because they work best for us, and because I feel they are the right choices for us. And of course Attachment Parenting in general isn't necessarily easy, but then, I don't expect parenting to be easy. I do what I do because it works for us and I enjoy it (for the most part). That's not to say there aren't days when I get frustrated, or when it isn't hard, I do and it is. The main point, though, is that it's what works for us.
