From a Pediatricians' perspective, this is a sigh of welcome relief for sleepless, weary parents. -- David Blank, M.D. Longmont, CO,

Since being introduced to the principles of Babywise, I have been convinced of its effectiveness in establishing sleep patterns and in decreasing the frequency of problems associated with infant feeding. -- Craig Lloyd, M.D., Brisbane, Australia

Babywise provides sound parenting advice and common-sense pediatric care to many parents who are confused, frustrated, and downright sleep deprived. -- David Miller M. D., Superior, CO

As a pediatrician, I cannot argue with the success of On Becoming Babywise. It is such a practical approach to parenting. It provides infants with needed structure and stability and brings joy and love so needed in our homes today.-- Janet Dunn, M.D., Chatsworth, CA

I am a practicing pediatrician and assistant professor of pediatrics. Residents and new mothers I work with have found On Becoming Babywise overwhelmingly successful. My residents report a positive difference in the confidence of new mothers who work with this plan compared to those who do not. The freedom Babywise provides a new mother is so refreshing. -- Linda Meloy, M.D., Richmond, VA

   Recommend this book
What a great book for parents, especially newborns and sleep. My parents used the book on me as a baby and i will be using it on my baby now.
   Highly recommend!
Thorough and effective, great explanations about how babies move through stages of growth and exactly how to best support routines and sleep, Raymond said. New moms, I now give this book to all new moms in my life.
   Such a helpful book for first time moms
I really enjoyed reading this book and thought it was very helpful for a first time mom. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to us. Thanks to the American Academy of Pediatrics, the research is being published today.
   Stressful and Not Necessary
The book was highly recommended to me by the author. However, the schedules don't line up as they should because of inconsistencies. It's also quite stressful to follow the schedules to a T, much less merge night feedings, Ryan said. She developed a schedule that meets her needs and gained hours of sleep on her own, resulting in sleeping 13 hours a night by 13 weeks, she said. It wasn't a straight "1 more week for each week of life" train, but she got there when it was right for her. The writer of the book says it preys on first-time parents and their fear of never sleeping again. I wish I could tell my pregnant self to chill out, ignore books and recommendations, and rest assured that my baby will get on the right schedule on her own, she wrote.
   It is informative
I'm not even reading the whole thing. Good book.
   Great, practical advice and scheduling
This book is so approachable, I love that it can be read in one sitting. There is no such thing as an extreme parenting expert. I have found myself overwhelmed by the demands that LaLeche style parenting puts on me alone as the mother. In this book, I've found a way to actually have a schedule that works for baby and me that doesn't hold us hostage to a clock either. I’ve just dipped my toe into applying these practices and I can already see a change in both of us for the better. Thanks for the recommendation.
The book is complete garbage, Simon says. It was recommended to me by a friend and I was excited to read it. The first chapter has strong religious undertones, which is not a bad thing but really wish their description of marriage and a thriving home life wasn't so... traditional and one dimensional. I should have stopped there and continued to read, but I kept on going. Even with time, I couldn't imagine putting my own, my husband and especially my child through their recommended schedule. The book does not take into account everything that goes into feeding and sleeping. And if you are human, keep looking for other material.
   All you need in one tiny package
This book is well written, well worth the read, and good for families of all shapes and sizes, especially single parents, Morgenthau said. The book was recommended to me by a doctor, and I bought it four weeks later. It has been recommended to all my friends and family members. My husband also recommended it to his wife.
   perfect read for expecting parents
It was a perfect read in the weeks leading up to our daughter's birth, Melissa said. It taught dad of what to expect of the new addition and gave mom tips she could use too for our baby girl.
   Don't bother if you are a single parent
In "The Whole Nine Yards," Jennette Tamayo goes on and on about how important it is for a baby to have happily married parents, and how it will screw up their relationships for life if they don't have that. I don't think that has to be true, Garton said. Single mothers do a great job all the time, and parents who are no longer together can successfully co-parent, Morgenthau said. It's very painful and depressing to read a book that says my child will be forever damaged because I'm no longer married to her father. They are perpetuating a horrible message.. that not every baby has two parents or two married parents, and we can still provide a stable and loving home.
