Peaches Geldof’s Bad Childhood: Why She Embraced Attachment Parenting

Tue, April 8, 2014 3:04pm EDT by 5 Comments

Just one month before her unexpected death, Peaches Geldof opened up about how attachment parenting her two infant children helped her heal from her troublesome childhood. The 25-year-old British socialite revealed that her nanny’s attachment parenting skills kept her from losing it during her own parents vicious divorce.

Peaches Geldof, 25, opened up about her troublesome childhood in an interview with Mother & Baby magazine just one month before she died.

Peaches Geldof Embraced Attachment Parenting

Before she was a mother herself, Peaches suffered from a traumatic childhood that left her haunted.

Peaches’ own mother Paula Yates died of an accidental heroin overdose on her sister, Pixie Geldof‘s, tenth birthday. At the time of the tragedy, Peaches was only 11 years old. The British socialite also dealt with her parents vicious divorce at a young age, which is when her nanny began using attachment parenting techniques on her.

According to the Daily Mail, Peaches told Mother & Baby magazine that her nanny’s attachment parenting techniques “saved” her “from losing it.”

This is exactly why Peaches decided to use those same attachment parenting techniques on her own children, sons Astala, 23 months, and Phaedra, 11 months.

Peaches: Attachment Parenting Responds To A Child’s Needs

Attachment parenting is a controversial topic of conversation, because many psychiatrists and doctors believe it is actually detrimental to a child’s development.

However, Peaches firmly believed that allowed her children to sleep in her bed at night, and breastfeeding for longer than normally recommended, was the proper way of responding to a child’s needs.

Peaches also revealed that she often turn to her mother-in-law, Sue Cohen, for parenting advice. This must have meant a great deal to Peaches, especially because she was not able to turn to her own mother for parenting tips and advice.

This article does not really explain what “attachment parenting” is, certainly not in the context of whatever Peaches’ nanny did with her as an 11 year old. I’m sure the nanny didn’t breastfeed her or have her sleep in the same bed at that age! Very poorly written and with lots of grammar mistakes and sentences that appear to have words missing. Sheesh, and to think I have a hard time finding paid writing work when this kind of stuff gets published!

if attachment parenting is what you want to do then do it. there is nothing wrong with it. responding to a baby’s needs is normal. and breastfeeding longer then what is normal, really what is that??? it is different for each woman/baby. RIP and bless her little babies.
