Give Babywise a chance--it worked miracles for me!

I rated this book a 5 because it saved my sanity.  I have 5 kids, the youngest of which are twins.  This book was reccommended to me by my sister-in-law and friend after my third child was born.  My first two babies did not learn to sleep through the night on their own, until they were several months old.  Trying to work and be a mom with interrupted sleep is difficult.  I used the principles in this book with my third child and my set of twins, and had them sleeping through the night by eight and twelve weeks, respectively.  I agree that this method of sleep-training may not work for everyone; there is a lot of crying in the beginning to endure, but I whole-heartedly recommend this book to every new mom I encounter.  Having a set schedule for my twins' eating/sleeping/wake time was a life-saver for me, and I believe that is why my three youngest are great sleepers now.  I know that some moms won’t be able to tolerate the crying in the beginning; I admit it is difficult to get to week 8, but the payoffs are huge if it works.  I thought the author’s logic made sense, and I agree that child-centered homes are not how it is supposed to be.  I believe a child should be expected to fit to the family’s routine, and not vice versa.

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 …
