Baby Wise? What is it?

I saw this on Facebook on someone page where their baby wasn't sleeping good. Is it a book or what?

  • Yea, it's an infant training method. "eat play sleep"... You're supposed to do those thing in order on a certain schedule to prevent baby from eating to often or fall asleep eating. It also involves CIO, if I'm not mistaken. It's been linked to failure to thrive, especially in breastfed infants.

  • Wow... I need to proofread. Just pretend I used the right "too" and put S's where they belong and "ing" where it belongs.

  • It's controversial. People either hate it or love it. You get lots of comments on this website about it. I used the method with my kids and it worked. But, you have to make your own decision about what if right for you and your family.

  • It's a parenting philosophy, which includes feeding, sleeping, etc. I used it for all 5 of my kids. They all slept at least 8 hours/night by 2 months, and 12 hours/night by 6 months. They are all healthy, happy, well adjusted kids.
