Written by Dr. Robert Bucknam and Gary Ezzo, this introduction to the Babywise series is a manual for the anti-attachment style of parenting. The author himself states, "Not everything works for every baby, but the general guidelines have worked for us more than once. The more willing you are to strictly follow this book, the more apt you are to get results sooner, but everyone has their own approach."
While these techniques are miracle-solution for some parents that use them, there is a whole other group of parents that think that Baby Wise, Toddler Wise and the like are all emotionally damaging to your child.
Personally, I think that there is a bit of truth to the thinking that parents can coax their children into a schedule most times. However, I do not think that this, or any child rearing book, is the solution to parenting your child. You need to do what works for you and for your child.
Baby Wise could, not should, be one place to gather ideas and theories on sleeping, feeding and playing, but should be taken in small doses and only as you and your family deem appropriate.
