5 Must-have Items for Homeschooling and Attachment Parenting at the Same Time

5 must haves for attachment parenting and homeschooling

As most of you have probably noticed, my husband and I attachment parent. If you do to and want some ideas for how to navigate an attached baby and homeschooling at the same time, this vlog post is for you!



If you just want the short of it, here is my condensed list (if you want the reasons why, you'll have to watch the video! 😉 ) (some of the following are affiliate links)

  1. Baby Hammock (such as the ones made by Special Delivery)
  2. Baby Monitor (but not for the reason you think!)
  3. A good nursing pillow (such as My Brest Friend)
  4. A comfortable baby carrier that properly positions the baby (such as a Mei Tai- I like the ones made by Baby Hawk)
  5. Lapdesks for your older kiddos (this is the inexpensive Lap Tray we have)

That's it friends! Be sure to come back next week when I start my 31 Days of Bellies, Birth and Babies from a Doula's Perspective series for the entire month off October!

    I would love to hear more about being a doula. That is something I am very interested about, but do not know where to start. I am a homeschooling mom of three as well, and I wonder if I could be a doula and still “do it all”. Any advice would be appreciated. God Bless.

      Honestly, I would recommend that you become a childbirth teacher while you still have littles and save the doula work for when they are older. I am currently unable to take clients because I simply can’t be on call while I still have a nursing toddler and I need to be able to homeschool my kids. It is much easier to be able to actually schedule classes that you are teaching than having to leave in the middle of the night for who knows how long! I hope to be able to get back into the doula side of things when my kids are older.

      I use our baby monitor every day, but our room is also in a part of the house that I can’t hear very well so it is pretty essential when she is sleeping.
