Attachment Parenting, created and popularized by Dr. William Sears, firmly believes in the benefits of co-sleeping. The main idea behind the concept is that the more bonded a child is, the more secure they feel. Attachment Parenting International (API) is a non-profit organization founded on Dr. Sears's theories that has created "8 Principles of Parenting" that include babywearing, co-sleeping, breastfeeding, and gentle discipline — definitely a child-centered, responsive approach.
