They're sisters, moms of girls, and business partners, but when it comes to parenting styles, are Kim Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian on the same page?

Both of the Keeping Up with the Kardashians stars have been in the news lately—Kourtney, to promote the clothing line Kardashian Kids, and Kim, because of that Vogue cover with Kanye West—and both have talked about the things they do as parents.

As Us Weekly reports, Kourtney told Redbook magazine that she's a proponent of Attachment Parenting. "It's what came naturally to me; I didn't plan it," she told Redbook. "When I had Mason, I just felt really attached to him and wanted to bring him everywhere. He ended up sleeping with me, and I breastfed for 14 months." She continued, "I'm sure all the family thinks I'm insane for having them in the bed and breastfeeding for a long time, but whatever."

Kim, meanwhile, told Vogue that she likes to play dress-up with baby North West. "I take pictures of her all the time and dress her up ... I put Kanye's big chains around her, and I put a little Louis bag and some Jordans, and I was like, 'What up, Daddy?'"

Kourtney talked openly at a promotional event about how she alters Mason's old clothes for Penelope so she can wear them, which seems a far cry from North West's already famous collection of designer duds. (I can't imagine that Kourtney's kids don't have the same access to adorable designer baby gear, but I admire her sense of thriftiness. Or her interest in recycling. Or whatever reason she has for putting her kid in hand-me-downs like the rest of us.)

I'm sure that Kim is an involved, loving mom, and I know that one funny little anecdote in Vogue does not define a parenting style. But the more I read about Kourtney, the more I relate to her as a mom and actually, dare I admit, kind of admire the way she's raising her kids amidst the craziness (er, kraziness) of Hollywood fame. What about you?

Quick tip for all you parents all out there: My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>>>SleepBaby .org<<<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! Sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link. >>SleepBaby .org<< Best of luck to you and your family! :)
