Description Attachment parenting is an approach to parenting that is chiefly characterized by intensive contact between the child and the mother (Washington & Dunham, 2011). Most research based on this topic is about the impact of attachment parenting on the child. Interest has recently been expressed in what the parents who follow attachment parenting principles are like. The demographic characteristics of mothers of nine-month old children from the Czech Republic, who identified themselves as following the attachment parenting trend, will be presented. Information about feelings and attitudes of these mothers will be included along with the demographic characteristics. The demographic traits, the attitude to the expected child rated during pregnancy, the mother’s attitude to child rearing (IRA), the mother’s anxiety (GAD-7), the mother’s depression (PHQ-9), the mother-infant relationship (MABISC, PPBQ) and selected characteristics of child care (e.g. the frequency of carrying a child), will all be presented.
