I am very much an attachment parent (because it works best for us) but there are times you need a little break to do normal things without a crying baby who requires your constant 100% attention.

Crying with another responsible person for a short amount of time will not harm your child.

It's nice that it fits some people's personality to do otherwise.

but happy momma will eventually equal happy baby. You have to do what's right for your family and not worry about other people who choose to go a different route.
