Re: babywise

Is this the one that promotes the eat/play/sleep routine? If so, I did read some of that book. I wish I had read more, but I was so dang tired with our first DS that I couldn't make myself get through it all. But I did think it had a lot of great points and every day I log on here and read all the threads about 2 year olds still waking multiple times a night, I am so thankful that I helped DS learn to sleep properly as an infant.

I know what you mean.. and I loved babywise. I realized I'd made soooo many mistakes with dd1 when I read it before having dd2.. dd2 was sooo much happier when I understood about awake times. But babywise is a topic like circumcision and vaccination that quickly goes downhill around here! lol!

Not to sound dumb here but what is baby wise?!

I wouldn't start a fire with that book. You should google Ezzo. He has no medical training, and the aap have spoken out against his methods and linked them to failure to thrive. I would look into Dr Jay Gordon or someone reputable. I am in no way bashing your parenting decisions, but I hope that you will at least check into Babywise a bit more. There are definitely better options out there. I wish the best, and I mean no offense.

Its also Babywise! They are kind of similar in a lot of ways! Baby Whisperer says you should never let a baby cry alone though, but that crying is ok.

Yikes! I just googled the book, supposedly, his publisher even dropped him because they realized the method was dangerous, and now he self publishes. *smh*

......you should see what my posts look like BEFORE auto correct.

Re: babywise

I've read a little bit about that, and it sounds so extremely cruel. I nurse on demand and respond to my child's needs.

If he has reflux, letting him cry at all, especially laying down will increase reflux thus causing more crying and pain. Wearing DS3 helped a lot because he was most comfortable being upright.
