5.0 von 5 Sternen WONDERFUL TOOL FOR LOVING PARENTS
I guess I shouldn't be, but I have to admit I am surprised at how hostile some people are about this book, some stating that breastfeeding mothers using these concepts will never breasfeed beyond a year and others stating that Baby Wise parents follow instructions blindly. First of all, I am a breastfeeding mother, my baby is 6 1/2 months old and has never had a...

1.0 von 5 Sternen Before using this book, try a little experiment, 16. März 2000
Before you use BABYWISE, try an experiment on yourself Reviewer: heidiht from florida Try not to eat or drink anything - not even a sip of water - for at least 7 hours - that's basically the equivilent of a night's sleep, isn't it - and see how happy and comfortable YOU are. And you're a grown-up, not a little baby with a tummy the size of his tiny tiny fist. Babies learn only what they are taught, and if they are taught that babies should be ignored, that their needs, including hunger, should not be met, then they'll think that the feeling in their tummy, or the coldness of their tears on their cheeks (once they are a few weeks old and have tear ducts which allow them to cry real tears) are to be expected, then they will never ever learn that their parents are there to love and cherish and support them. My seven month old son sometimes sleeps for 5/6 hours straight, and sometimes, he wakes up every 90 minutes (especially when his gums hurt from teething) and when he does, I or his father go into his room to take care of him, and he loves us, and trusts us, and has already started walking, and is always very alert and perky during the day, except right before his naptimes, which happen at about the same time each day - we certainly can plan our lives around them. And he knows that we'll be there for him.

1.0 von 5 Sternen "As a mother comforts her child, so I will comfort you.", 26. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Isaiah 66:13
I find several serious dangers in this book. One of which is breastfeeding. As a breastfeeding mother and a health care provider, night breastfeeding is so important to a young newborn. A newborns stomach is much smaller than ours and needs frequent feedings to allow for proper nourishment, growth and development. Ridgid scheduled feedings may times cause growth retardation, emotional harm, failure to thrive(which many of "Ezzo's Babies" have been diagnosed with!) and countless other problems. Rigid scheduled feedings also affect the breastfeeding mother (engorgement, infections of the breast etc..) Anyone who claims this is good for the mother or baby is seriously medically mistaken. I could list you countless consequences that this "program" causes to the breastfeeding mother and child. As far as I am concerned this is not PRO-breastfeeding. Another concept I am concerned with is the "crying it out". How can you seriously think a 6 week old baby is manipulating you to hold him or feed him. It is impossible to love a child too much. Rocking, holding, touching, singing, contact with a baby is vital to thrive. Read the research and statistics on babies that are left in their beds to "cry it out", left untouched, not spoken to, not fed when they need food. You will find that these children have higher rates of SIDS, malnutrition and failure to thrive and I could go on and on. BEWARE of "programs" that are an all-inclusive, quick-fix, "IF you aren't doing it this way--IT is not God's way" As a mother--When my newborn cries, I feel it in my deepest parts. I feel an overwhelming motherly compassion. I know that when I cry out to my God, HE answers me everytime. Sometimes it is Yes, NO or wait---but He answers.
Just think about this--I know I need love as a person. I like to be cuddled and held by my husband....I like sleeping next to my husband!! When I am hungry---I eat. I don't look at my watch and say to myself, "No, you can't eat now, it is not time!" (especially breastfeeding--you need to eat often to supply vital nutrients) A newborn needs lots of care and it is selfish of the parents to deny him that. After All, that baby was in you for 9 mo feeling your constant care,touch, movement, closeness & comfort. No wonder why children die of failure to thrive from parents who abandon them by ignoring the only means of communication that baby has. I beg you mothers to follow your heart and not some man who claims this is "God's Way". YOUR BABY NEEDS YOU!

3.0 von 5 Sternen good but read discerningly, 10. Januar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I would recommend this book to anyone who had read the attachment parenting materials and then tell them to take what is good and leave the rest. There are some very valuable principles here, namely that you do not have to kowtow to every whimper lest your child be scarred for life and the Ezzos also make the very valid point (one which I would like to underline for every one of those rabid APers) that it is entirely possible for your "instictive responses" to your child to come not from a place of health and givingness but from your own damaged and unfinished business in your OWN family of origin. I like the fact that the Ezzos encourage people to THINK whereas certain other parenting specialists are actually very anti-thinking about why you are responding in a fashion. Those who have trouble with any parenting materials usually tend to be those who think they are going to find a magic formula that they slavishly follow and that will bring them good kids. Anyone who would watch their kid waste away becasue some "expert" told them to before they go to a real live doctor has a serious problem. That goes for people who follow PREP and for people who are determined to breastfeed no matter what equally well...if your kid isnt thriving you'd better darn well find out why and do something about it instead of listening to some marginally trained parent counselor (whether they are with PREP or with LLLI, doesnt matter) tell you to "just keep on doing what you are doing and everything will be OK" I wish I could give this book higher marks because I do like a lot of the principles. If I was giving a new parent books I would give them the Ezzos (with a big disclaimer on them) Peggy Robins book, Help your child sleep thru the night by Ferber, and any and all of John Rosemonds books....to offset the touchy feely mumbo jumbo out there today....children need boundaries and lots of love. DOnt get the two out of balancd

2.0 von 5 Sternen Some good ideas, very rigid, not developmentally appropriate, 14. Juni 2000
I used Babywise and Babywise II for my infant and recommend it to my friends as a guideline. I warn my friends that it is rigid and assumes children are inherently inclined to be bad and must be trained otherwise. I vehemently disagree. Although I still recommend these books to get some good ideas on structure and routine, my number one parenting resource is Positive Discipline, by Jane Nelson, particularly the birth to three years book, as that is what applies to us now. Instead of demanding obedience through conditioning and wielding heavy authority, it explains how to truly teach your children in a loving and non-punitive way while still being firm. Where did we get the idea that to make children behave better they have to feel worse about their current behavior? I consider myself a pretty strict parent, as Babywise advocates, but providing my children with the same respect I demand for myself is of the upmost importance. Ezzo gives me the impression that the goal is to get the child to answer "how high?" when I say jump. Of course I want my children to be well behaved, but I feel this comes naturally through modeling respect, teaching through natural and logical consequences, and providing responsibility within the family unit. Ezzo may think that anything less than total control is permissive, but I argue that well-behaved children are taught kindly and firmly to see the consequences of their actions, not simply trained to obey. Although he says that the goal is ultimately self control of the child, I feel that it is arrived at through conditioning, like one would a dog, not real teaching and respect.

5.0 von 5 Sternen WONDERFUL TOOL FOR LOVING PARENTS, 27. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I guess I shouldn't be, but I have to admit I am surprised at how hostile some people are about this book, some stating that breastfeeding mothers using these concepts will never breasfeed beyond a year and others stating that Baby Wise parents follow instructions blindly. First of all, I am a breastfeeding mother, my baby is 6 1/2 months old and has never had a bottle. With the Baby Wise methods, breastfeeding has been such a joy and certainly never an inconvenience. Our baby is learning to use a cup and we will probably be able to skip the bottle. Our baby never could be considered undernourshid, in fact, he is VERY HEALTHY. Our schedule is absolutely perfect and our baby is so happy. He has been sleeping through the night since he was 11 weeks old has been sleeping for at least 10 hours a night since he was 3 1/2 months old. Naps are a snap. And there is nothing like having your child wake up happy, greeting you with a beautiful smile. There is no doubt in my mind that our baby knows he is loved very much. Secondly, the Baby Wise books DO NOT tell parents to follow instructions blindly. They state very clearly to use your own common sense. I believe that anyone who actually follows through with the methods along with their own common sense will see that it really works! The Baby Wise books have been such a blessing to our family. I am so glad they were written.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Best guide for me and my baby so far!!, 29. Mai 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I was shocked to read so many negative reviews. While I don't follow ALL of the books advice (hence 4 stars), my husband and I found that our baby responded VERY well to the sleeping and eating guidelines. After reading several parenting books including "what to expect", I still didn't know when my baby wanted to sleep or eat. The "on-demand" theory was NOT for me. Once I gave her a chance to follow this book's 3-hour eat, play, sleep guideline, she started sleeping through the night and I began understanding the signals she was giving me. Of five babies of the same age at our "play dates", Erica is the most pleasant and predictible. It makes it much easier for family who watches her for me once a month. My mother is amazed at how she fusses to let you know she wants a nap, she puts her down and she goes right to sleep then wakes up cooing and smiling. Getting her up from sleep or a nap is my favorite times of the day. My husband gave me the best compliment I've ever received when he said that it was me who gave my daughter the chance to be this wonderfully pleasant baby. I say this book helped me give her that chance. If you only take from the book the sleeping and eating guidelines, you've made a terrific investment in your baby's health and happiness as well as your own.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This book is a must for all parents!, 2. Januar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
It seems that most people who disagree with the contents of this book haven't actually put it into practice. I am the mother of 2 1/2 year-old boy/girl twins. They are as different as possible in looks and personality. Yet they have both responded well to the Babywise principles. We began using the book when they were 3 months old and as parents we were exhausted! More than two years later, we have happy, well rested children who are secure, content, growing and happy. I stay at home with them and I think that has a lot to do with using the book and the happiness of myself and my children. I had no guilt going into this mothering experience regarding time spent with my children, so I think that is why I was able to apply the strategies in the book knowing I was doing the best thing for my babies. As with all childcare advice, use what you feel is best. A parent should know their child better than anyone, use some things and not others. We are not rigid, when one of our children is sick, or we travel to a new place, we adjust as needed. Thanks to the Ezzo's for giving sound advice and confidence to parents. I highly recommend this book to anyone considering the job of parenting -- take this calling seriously and do the best for your children.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Popular among some parents; controversial among others, 20. September 1996
Von Ein Kunde
What parent doesn't want their baby to sleep through the night? The claims of the method contained in this easy-to-read book is that your infant will be sleeping through the night by six to eight weeks of age.
Impossible? Not according to the authors, who claim that every baby can and should sleep through the night by this age.

The secret, according to the authors, is putting the baby on their feeding schedule. Forget demand feeding--this book will detail the alleged horrors of a poor baby who was demand fed. You will discover that every ill he suffers is linked to demand feeding.

The Babywise baby, on the other hand, is content, happy, thriving, developmentally superior, and near perfect.

Skeptical? So are many parents. So are many doctors. Don't look for footnotes of medical resources to back up the authors' claims; the advice contained in this book flies in the face of much of the current medical advice. Many lactation professionals consider this a recipe for potential breastfeeding disaster.
In newsgroups, books by Gary Ezzo seem to engender heated debate and much controversy.

Judging by the sort of discussion this book generates, either you'll hate it or you'll love it.

1.0 von 5 Sternen My own instincts were screaming at me to close the book, 30. Juli 1998
Von Ein Kunde
I had to force myself to finish reading these books in hopes that I would learn something valuable. Unfortunately, there was very little I agreed with in either book. I am a first time mother and I struggle many nights with sleep deprivation and irrational frustration at my beautiful daughter that I, of course, love with all my heart. However, I am so happy that I had the confidence to trust my instincts and provide her comfort and love whenever she needed it --- whether the sun was up or not. In addition, the instructions to force your child to keep his/her hands under the high chair tray to prevent playing with food made me cringe. I cherish the time I spend with my daughter as she discovers, not only the taste, but the texture and consistency of new foods. It takes less than 5 minutes to clean up afterward -- wouldn't you spend that much time cleaning up after your own meal? I may consider some of the guidelines in this book and modify them for use when they ap! ply -- however, I hope readers remember the recommendations in these books are only one avenue and if you feel, as I did, that they are WRONG, please trust your own instincts as a parent.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Dr. Spock must be rolling in his grave., 16. September 1998
As a new parent I am all for raising a morally balanced child. However, this book is more on how to raising a controlled robot, not a free thinking individual. I agree that children need limits, but they also need to be allowed to explore their world.
The most important thing a child needs is love. In reading this book, not once do I recall that being mentioned. The book goes on to say that things such as seperation anxiety and developing an attachment to a "cozy" either don't exsist or are not desirable things. I hate to inform the authors but both things are developmental milestones of a happy healthy child, not a problem to be avoided. Also, I think the authors need to read up on the value of breastfeeding. Schedules are wonderful, but they don't take in account an individuals needs or moods. Sometimes you are just not hungry or tired on someone elses schedule.
I still think that Dr. Spock was right "trust yourself...you know more than you think" This book is all that Dr. Spock was trying to avoid. He wanted people to enjoy their children, not feel the need to schedule everything.
