I just realized that in my post last night I included baby wise in the title... why, might you ask- because I was planning on mentioning it!
Opps, I guess I figured my post was getting so long already that I would break it up instead.
Maybe my post on baby wise is premature, I am only through 1/4 of the book, but I guess it has been so helpful already that I feel its time to talk, talk, talk about it.
On Becoming Baby Wise: Giving Your Infant the Gift of Nighttime Sleep
by: Gary Ezzo and Robert Bucknam
I am so thankful for all that I am learning already! I really think that I would have been lost with out this helpful resource.... and extremely fatigued and exhausted by the sounds of it.
There were multiple families that strongly encouraged that we read this book, one family of 9 kids shared their experience. They did demand feeding with their first 3 kids, and then read this book - practicing the baby wise method of feeding and said that their next 6 kids were all sleeping through the night my 9-10 weeks old! wow, I here some pretty intense stories of being awake all night with baby for YEARS! No sirreee bob! not me... God willing.
Hallelujah!! Bring on the baby wise method! :o)
You know, I guess this book has helped so many people, because the other day at work a man came in looking to leave some information on advertising with us for our owners. Through some small talk (because that is what salesmen do...) he found out that I was pregnant. Immediately... i am talking, IMMEDIATELY he grabbed a paper and proceeded to tell me that I "GOTTA READ THIS BOOK - SAVED MY WIFE'S LIFE"
I guess with their first child, the daughter would crying from 10pm to 6 am - mom had no sleep and by month 5, she was going crazy. No sleep what so ever. But it was a totally different story with their son this time around, he said that Baby Wise had there baby sleeping through the night at 2 months old too!
Well, that is proof enough for me, I really trust the families at my church that have earnestly suggested that I read it. They have beautiful and wonder kids - and after 9, I am SURE they know what they are talking about :o)
If you are expecting, or will be again in the future - check it out, it has been really good and informative read so far!
