EC is consistent with Attachment Parenting because it:

14. Encourages the development of a trusting relationship with children through communication about a basic human need.

15. Reinforces use of a sling. Sling time increases parent/baby communication and leads to "success" with EC.

16. Fosters greater security in a baby: "Mommy and Daddy listen to what I am saying and respond to my needs."

17. Explains why a baby may not sleep through the night: she wakes when she needs to eliminate.

18. Provides an additional positive response to a crying baby: a parent can see if the baby's need to eliminate is causing her distress or discomfort.

19. Increases comfort of carrying a baby: there is less bulk than a diaper and it feels better for both caregiver and baby.
