I wish I had read it before birth. I discovered this book and the importance of routine 6-7 weeks after giving birth and since starting a flexible 2 1/2 to 3h routine, I feel more relaxed, composed and so does my baby. He also now wakes and feeds at more predictable times during the day and at night. Also, he only wakes up twice at night for feeding instead if 3 times and hopefully will soon sleep through!

Bucknum probably studied physiology but doesn't seem to remember that it ought to apply to nursing mothers, and that child development applies to babies. If you follow the Christian (but not scriptural) based ideas of this book, you may see a FTT baby- one who has learned that no matter what s/he signals, her needs will rarely be met. This applies to feeding, sleep, cuddling, being carried, being talked to. (Ezzo says we aren't primitive people so our babies don't need a lot of holding or sling/snuggly use.) They also claim there is no "maternal instinct" but they do all they can to obscure the instinct we mothers know we have. The baby is viewed as a minor inconvenience but a "joy", (how, they don't explore) whereas the parents are the only truly important family members. This is the secular version of "Preparation for Parenting" a Christian program, repudiated by many churches. It doesn't work, and although Ezzo likes to think so, J! esus wasn't raised this way. Oh, it appears to work, if you want a baby who sleeps, plays and eats on cue, but is unable to determine his or her own bodily needs. Read the Sears new Christian parenting book instead, or any of their books if you aren't Christian, or Penelope Leach. (The religious affiliation is not revealed in Becoming Baby(un)wise.) There are too many good books to waste your money on this one. Bucknum often doesn't recommend this method to his patients- maybe he knows something he won't admit in print. :-/

This book was such a blessing for me and our family. It was recommended to me by friends of mine from church. Now I buy it for everyone I know having a baby. I think this book should be on the best seller list. I graduated with my bacherlors degree in Psychlogy with a focus on children. I also went through many classes and trainings about raising children and the Ezzo's are the best I have ever seen. I agree with most all they say. Baby Wise was like my bible during the first few months. I wouldn't have another child without it. My baby is such a blessing, and I can't wait to have another. The first question everyone asks when they see I have a baby is, "does he sleep throught he night?". He is now 5 months old and sleeps almost 10 hours a night in addition to 2 to 3 naps a day. Thank God for the Ezzo's.

I am a mother of 5. I used these methods with my first two babies, and had nothing but glowing reports about the success of our methods. I was excessively self-congratulatory about my superior mothering wisdom (but of course, feigned humility among those other mothers who were working so much harder than me--the poor dears).
By the time I was pregnant with my third, I realized something disturbing about myself. I had no compassion for my own children. I had listened to so much crying and done so much ignoring of my children's needs (because that is what this book requires for success) that I felt NOTHING when my children cried (even if they were injured). I had calloused my heart to their cries.
Yes, my first two babies slept through the night at an early age. Yes, they seemed easy going and happy during the day. I was even able to breastfeed them. But at what price? When I realized how these methods and ideas had hardened my mother's heart I was grieved.
With my third child I discovered sleeptight and Dr. Jeffrey Hull. His methods and ideas are much more compassionate and reasonable. These ideas helped my parent my third baby and she too slept well through the night without "crying it out." Most of all, though, I learned that good mothering is a whole lot of hard work. It requires a great deal of sacrifice and being sensitive to a babies needs. There are no easy formulas.

I am the mother of two, and expecting a third. With my first child I nursed on demand, and didn't get more than 2 hours straigt sleep for 6 months. (I finally resorted to breaking that habit, and my heart by letting my baby cry himself back to sleep for about 4 nights in a row.) He was thriving, in the 95th percentile for weight. With my second son I followed the Baby Wise guidelines (I came from a neighborhood of new moms who swore by it) and had a baby who slept through the night at 7 weeks. I never had to listen to him cry himself to sleep, it just happened. He was also much more content during daytime hours. He, too, was thriving, gaining a full pound his first week and four during the first month and always in the 90th percentile range. I'll be using the Baby Wise guidelines with our third. I am surprised that some readers think the authors are telling you to ignore your child. I never got that from reading this book. I understood them to say babies cry for different reasons, don't automatically assume it's hunger, and don't respond with a bottle or breast if hunger isn't what's bothering them. They also write of babies need to play and for companionship, and encourage you and other family members to fulfill these needs. If you want a book that helps you sleep through the night (which I believe is beneficial for baby and mom) by establishing a rather flexible routine, then Baby Wise is for you. If, however, you'd prefer to let your baby make all the demands, and are okay with an erratic schedule (and all the moodiness for baby, mom and dad) which can occur, then maybe this book is not for you.

As a Child Development professional (I'm a parent of two children, ages 4 mos and 2.5 years), my wife and I found the original Baby Wise to be a terrific source of parenting advice. The principles require diligence on the part of parents (diligence is requirement for any successful parent). If you love your child (and I'm sure you do!), you owe it to them to be a loving leader in your home. This book shows you how to be that loving leader from day one of your baby's life. As a Christian, it's interesting to note that the authors have a series entitled Growing Children God's Way which explains the biblical principles underlying the secularized Baby Wise book. My wife and I used the original edition of Baby Wise, and the areas we found confusing or thin were, happily enough, the very areas the authors revised in the current edition. My firstborn son took four months to sleep through the nights, but my daughter only 7 weeks! Oh, and BTW, if you don't like my credentials as a Child Development professional, my wife's credentials are better: she's a licensed clinical social worker with an MSW in the State of Florida.

This book was recommended to me by a pregnant friend while I was pregnant with my second child. With memories of sleepless nights and hectic, unpredicatable days from my first, I was open-minded and interested based upon my friend's description of the book. As I read this book, a sick, sinking feeling grew inside my heart. How could anybody a treat a infant this way? This book should be called "parent-centered" or "parent convenience training." I got through the first book and was appalled. I had purchased the follow-up book at the same time I bought this one, so I opened it to even worse advice and horrible recommended treatment of children (like, if your toddler is not potty-trained by 18 mos. they should be required to clean themselves up if they soil themselves! ). This guy is nuts and as far as these people that inflict this treatment on their children: "never underestimate the power of denial."

I have just finished reading this book. My first child is not due for another several months, so I have no working knowledge of the method. Like all the reading I have done so far, I am taking the advice with a grain of salt. However, I am very surprised to read several reviews attacking the book and the author for things I feel the book does not advocate in the first place. Not once did I ever get the impression that the idea is to ignore your child! The idea is to EVALUATE the nature of the distress before automatically offering the breast or the bottle. Appropriate response rather than automatic response is the idea. As for Failure to Thrive, several, several times the author recommends checking your baby's growth and development against the norm and proceeding accordingly. For a parent to do otherwise with any method would be ignorant and neglectful.
I had to LAUGH when I read the review claiming that the author says that babies are evil and manipulative! What? Where? The same reviewer sited studies in which infant monkees were left untouched in cages and hence died. While it is very true that neglect causes failure to thrive and serious developmental problems, I fail to see this fact's relevence to the book in question. The book frequently refers to parental cuddle time and even -gasp- recommends comforting your child when he cries. I'm not sure everyone is reading the same book! Or reading at all.
Lastly, I never had one impression or another about the author's religion. Living in the belt-buckle of the Bible Belt, I am warry of the Christian Right and other extreme religious groups. Not once did I feel uncomfortable or preached to. How could I, there was no sermon! Though I defend the book on these points, I have yet to be in a postition to review the method. I encourage all new parents like myself to educate themselves on a variety of parenting skills and to use good judgement in selecting the ones that seem right for your very individual and unique child.
I knew nothing of this method or the author before someone gave me Baby Wise, so I feel I can be fairly objective in my statements here. I had absolutely no preconcieved ideas or opinions.

Someone gave me the Babywise book and before I read it I came to this site to read some of the reviews on it. After reading them I came to the conclusion I would have to read the book just to see what all the controversy is about. Since reading it I have realized that the people that are against it didn't want to like the book and the methods in the first place. They consistantly put down the author as being a tyrant and bordering on be an abuser of babies. They took just about everything he said and twisted it into what they wanted to hear to justify their cosleeping, constantly holding and making the baby the center of their family rather than an equal part. All I can say is the author constantly says to monitor your baby, your milk supply to make sure he is getting enough to eat and know your baby's crys. He never said let your baby cry and cry and cry. He said using his methods you will be able to tell what kind of a cry it is and when to respond as necessary. He also said it is fine to go in and comfort your baby. He also stated no one should use the clock as a soul source of when to feed your baby. He made suggestions for different situations. He even said, God forbid, that you are the parent and the decision is yours on how you want to handle situations that arise.
So I will say I read the book with an open mind and I found it very compassionate towards infants, towards families and especially towards the importance of the two parents' relationship.
And on the comment many people made about, "if an ederly person were treated this way...." to that I say read the book again because I didn't hear any abuse going on. If a ederly person were truly known and monitored, the way Ezzo suggests monitoring infants, they'd probably have better care than the nursing homes are currently providing.
So to those of you thinking about using this method take in all the reviews you'd like but read the book and use your own common sense.

My husband's advice about any book on advice is to use what you like and disregard what you don't like. This is what I've had to do with this book. I got this book because a friend of mine said it changed her life. That, of course, peaked my curiosity, on top of the fact that her 17-month old knows sign language. Unfortunately, upon reading the book, that's where my fascination with Parent-Directed Feeding ended. My daughter is soon-to-be 8 months old. I am still solely breast-feeding on a 3-hr. schedule during the day and one feeding at night. She is a very content and happy baby and I'm forever getting compliments because of her. Ezzo leads you to believe that if you don't follow his plan you will have a miserable, cranky child who will be avoided by friends and family. That was insulting. Now, I don't believe that Ezzo is promoting child abuse but I also don't believe in allowing babies, most especially newborns, to cry it out. The idea that babies cry because they are letting off emotional stress sounds as ludicrous to me as attachment parenting does to him. There is a way to put a child in bed without him being completely awake or completely asleep that satisfies both parent and child. A few minutes of winding down, rocking and singing to a baby is not detrimental. He may whimper initially when you put him down, but that is much nicer than howling for an hour, which Ezzo supports. I suppose if you can tolerate it and/ or if your baby goes down and responds well to this kind of parenting, go for it! My baby likes her pacifier when she takes a nap and goes to bed at night and she has since she was a week old. Ezzo calls a pacifier a sleep prop that should be done away with, especially at her age. Aside from dental concerns, I don't see how a pacifier is any different from a blanket which many PDFers' kids use. (PDF-Parent Directed Feeding) I don't see what's so wrong in granting a child what comforts him if it s not potentially dangerous, life-threatening or beyond reason. I like the idea of a flexible routine: sleep, feed, and wake time and I commend Ezzo for not being a clock watcher; however the idea that having a baby is simply like passing the baton in a relay race (there's no stopping, you just keep on running) seems absurd. A baby changes one's life whether we like it or not. Getting back into a routine takes time. If more mothers rested and relaxed like they were supposed to the first several months, it might lessen the frenzy to get into a schedule. I don't mean to ignore the working mother, but in her case for the most part, a caregiver dictates the schedule of the baby during the day; and as for mothers with other children, in a child-sensitive household, each child is, in turn, taught to be parent-sensitive. In my opinion, the fear that a child will usurp his parent's authority if his biological clock is not regulated asap by the parent is an extreme attempt to counter permissive parenting. For a more baby-sensitive (versus baby-centered, as Ezzo calls attachment parenting) ,approach to parenting, specifically Christian parenting, I would recommend books by William and Martha Sears who not only have years of clinical experience, but are the proud parents of eight children. Beware, though, Ezzo attacks this type of parenting, and yet both Sears and Ezzo claim to be Christians. The call is ultimatly yours but I would suggest reading both views to get a balanced perspective. Most of all, I would be confident as a parent to use whatever methods feel right to you and your child to raise them to be happy, well-adjusted and respectful.
