Baby wise is a parenting technique...the only one that American academy of pediatrics has ever taken a stand against. Read up on it sure....there are many other techniques that are less...controversial..
Babywise is a way of raising a baby on a schedule, ignoring the baby when its not "time" to do specific things...like cuddle, play or sometimes even feed. Babies as young as newborns are made to wait for attention, left to cry it out so they can "learn" they are not the center of attention in the family.
IMO a mom who strictly follows babywise is abusing her child. Especially if breastfeeding and especially if ignoring hunger cues..yeah babywise says to feed when theya re hungry but also says it shouldn't be for 2-3 hours and they should nruse for set amounts of time too, which leads to malnourishment and bad supply.
Babies should be the center of the family in the beginning, theya re helpless with no way to communicate.
