Chloé Jo Davis, founder of GirlieGirl Army – and our fearless leader – was interviewed by Katie Couric in June 28th’s episode of Katie entitled “Overparenting,” however what she shared was far from “Over.”  Chloé & her husband interactive creative director Jeremy Davis were featured, alongside adorable clips of their beautiful vegan, breastfed, attachment parented, co-slept kids Panther Britain and Freedom Midnight.

Although Couric was exploring the effects of parenting “too much”, Chloé exemplified attachment parenting as the most natural, basic instinct of any parent wanting to give their children love, attention, and bonding.  Chloé explains that children desperately need this closeness, and that we are lacking in a society of “cry it out” parents who view their newborn and children’s natural requirements as an inconvenience.

Don’t know what attachment parenting is? She’ll explain.

If you missed it – you can watch a clip of it below;

    Woot woot… Killing it Chloe… That was fantastic… Xxx

  2. Viv says:

    Amazing interview. I nursed my children til both around 2.5 yrs old. I baby wore my kids, and shared the family bed. Now they’re 6 and 9… secured, happy, independent, adventurous. Kids grow up so quickly. Wouldn’t have done in any other way, for me, to love, nurture my children in their early formative years.

  3. Robin F. says:

    Interesting piece! I am a vegan mom of 2 awesome kids (ages 2 1/2 and 11 weeks) and I baby wear and breastfeed but the only thing I don’t do is cosleeping…Still paranoid about rolling over on the 11 week old but all parents do things differently and to their comfort level! But I always felt that putting my kid in an Ergo and breastfeeding were just things that all modern moms do. I have heard of attachment parenting but I never took the time to really think about it and actually say “yeah I do attachment parenting”. I live in a town (Charlottesville, VA) that if you are not rocking a sling or a baby carrier, you are kind of a square peg. Same goes for breastfeeding…It’s pretty common to see a mom breastfeeding in public even at a high end restaurant. Also I feel I live in an area where I have so much support and resources for being the kind of mom I want to be! So for Katie Couric to come across the way she did (she event went to UVA which is in my town!) in this interview makes me wonder what kind of mom she was. I would think for a woman of her prominence, she would be embracing this a little bit more! I give props to Chloe Jo Davis for not making it look so weird because all I saw was a normal mom telling people what she does in a normal day….Am I crazy for thinking that???

  4. FabFiveFreddy says:

    Chloé needs her own TV show!! I’d watch!! That family is too cool!

  5. Calypso says:

    She’s so amazing. Girl, you got ovaries!

  6. LionsandTigers says:

    Big props to Chloe and her family. In a time, especially in a city like NYC, when a lot moms look at you like you’re a serial killer if you breastfeed, you’ve followed your natural parenting instinct and given you’re children the best starting point they could ever have. Hats off, looking forward to being just like that one day. Thanks for the inspiration.

  7. Ingrid says:

    Yay, Chloe! Wonderful, easeful and graceful interview. Thank you! XO

  8. Tali says:

    This is amazing Chloe! you are so confidant and well spoken, I was giving you a “you go girl!” every time you spoke :)
    Thank you for being a positive example and role model for moms and moms to-be.
    xo-Tali

  9. Amazing Chloe!!!! Dr. Spock would have been so proud of you! You advocated beautifully for attachment parenting, your husband was also well-spoken, I love the way your responded to Katie concerning Alicia, and you looked gorgeous!!!!! You are a positive role model, indeed! One of “My Dream Girls For A Vegan Reality TV Show!” So glad I saw this, because I was unable to see it yesterday!

  10. Anne Peronne says:

    Wonderful interview. It was compelling to watch Chloe challenge Time magazine’s piece on breastfeeding as over sensationalized, but also note that it opened a conversation. I was glad to hear Chloe participate in that conversation in order to dispel rumors and provide clarity and insight. It’s inspiring to see a beautiful and illuminated vegan family have a national media platform to share their love and light with the world. Thank you Chloe for your bravery and hutzpah in reminding the world that breastfeeding is natural and certainly nothing to be ashamed of!
    xoxo <3 Anne

  11. Simone says:

    You look beautiful! xoxo

  12. gina says:

    yay, so glad i got to see this. you’re such a great spokesperson…really hope this opened some eyes and minds out there. you don’t have to train your baby to self soothe or cry it out, and can have amazing, independent children (and look gorgeous yourself!) xo

  13. Chloé, you are fabulous! Well-spoken, intelligent, gorgeous, and my, how you handled those questions! Color me duly impressed. Love you and your amazing family! xoxo

  14. Malaina says:

    Great interview! It really isn’t that far out! You know in your gut what is right. There will come a time when you leave for more than an hour, but you still have little littles. xox

  15. Ashlee says:

    two words: rocked it.

  16. Chloé says:

    So inspired and honored by all your comments.

  17. Kate says:

    This was awesome! The only bit I didn’t like was when Katie said ‘some people think you should stop breastfeeding when they start asking for it’. I would have said ‘don’t they ask for it the minute they are born by crying, nuzzling, crawling across our chest and latching on? Should we punish them for developing verbal skills?’

  18. Lori says:

    This is great! The only thing I find slightly problematic is the clarification that it is not common to see a seven year old nursing. The child in the photo is three, not seven, but even if he was seven that actually is not an uncommon age to find a child still nursing. It mostly happens in cross-nursing cultures that coincidentally also can be classified as “AP”.

  19. Charlene Jenkins says:

    I have 7 children- attachment parented them all- youngest is 18 and all of my children are independent, successful, and are still close to my husband and me and to each other. It makes for a strong family and strong adults! I have seen the long term effects of attachment parenting

  20. Jenni says:

    YAY! Love it! I breastfed until my son was 3, wore him until I couldn’t anymore, and had him in my bed until 4. He is SO independent now it’s ridiculous! Keep it up!

  21. Jessie says:

    Hey, thank you so much for giving such intellectual, easy to understand answers and being such a good face for attachment parenting.. you rock.

  23. Aurelia says:

    You–and your adorable family–were born for TV! I don’t have children but always knew, intuitively, that if I did, I would parent in the “attachment” style. It just makes sense. Why put a newborn–or a toddler–away in a crib in another room? Something doesn’t feel quite right about that. Thank you so much for sharing!

  24. Kirsti Gholson says:

    GREAT interview! You rocked it, for sure.

  26. Aviva says:

    love your website– but I think chewing your kids food is absolutely disgusting! Yuck… I also think this is pressure on moms in the other direction.. Breat milk is not necessarily the right choice. I bottle fed my children and they were healthier than the other children on their school. I detest guilt… in any direction

  27. Hiya- Can you believe I just watched this- amazing job!…and I would like you to be my mother…
    Peace-e
