I was wondering if any of you have heard of the book babywise. It's a book that is supposed to set your baby up on a schedule and help them sleep through the night. I was at my brother's baseball game today and one of the moms recommended it because at 8 weeks, her son was sleeping through the night and is on a tight schedule now. I was intrigued because Kylie wakes up every 3 hours or so throughout the night (which I know is normal and totally does not bother me! I know she will sleep through the night when she's ready, just got me curious.)
Well I was looking online and it is totally not for me. At all. She made it sound like such a good thing and it might have worked well for her, but it's not something I want to do for DD.
What is the Babywise method? The Babywise method indicates you shouldfeed on schedule
every 3-4 hours (depending on age) rather than on demand from the first day of your baby’s birth. It is also routine-based that indicates that you should eat-play-sleep, in that order, every time. This means that your baby wakes up, you feed him, your baby plays, then goes to sleep and repeat this all day long. The book outlines how long between feedings at various ages and indicates your baby should sleep through the night
from an early age (around 8 to 12 weeks, for the most part).
I am NOT okay with not feeding her when she's hungry.. Anyone else hear about this method or used it?
