About this item

Teaches parents about synchronized feedings so their baby will establish cycles for wake time and nighttime, giving both parent and child the rest they need.

Distinguished pediatrician Dr Robert Bucknam, M.D. and co-author Gary Ezzo are two of the world's leading experts on infant management concepts. In this revised 5th edition, they have updated their groundbreaking approach which has found favor with over six million parents in all 50 states and has been translated into 16 languages around the world. For over 20 years, On Becoming Babywise has been the de facto newborn parenting manual for naturally synchronizing your baby's feeding time, waketime and nighttime sleep cycles, so the whole family can sleep through the night. The authors demonstrate how order and stability are mutual allies of every newborn's metabolism and how parents can take advantage of these biological propensities. In particular, they note how an infant's body responds to the influences of parental routine or the lack thereof. Early chapters start with explorations of everyday aspects of infant management such as the three basic elements of daytime activities for newborns: feeding time, waketime, and naptime. Practical discussions then focus on broad and niche topics including feeding philosophies, baby sleep problems, baby scheduling challenges, nap routines, sleep training multiples, baby sleeping props, Colic and Reflux and many other dimensions which impact breast feeding schedules, bottle feeding tips and baby sleep training. Five resource Appendixes provide additional reference material: 1) Taking care of baby and mom 2) A timeline of what to expect and when 3) Baby Sleep Training Problems and Solutions 4) Monitoring Your Baby's Growth 5) Healthy Baby Growth Charts On Becoming Babywise is more than an infant-management concept. It is a mindset for successful parenthood. It can help any parent develop a plan that meets both the needs of a new baby and of the entire family. These principles have worked for millions of parents and, when applied with common sense to your unique situation, can work wonderfully for you too! Recommended by doctors across the country.

5.0 stars by JandLsMommy

This book is a life saver. It was recommended to me by a friend who's baby sleeps through the night. This book gives a realistic approach to baby sleep and feeding schedules. It outlines schedules at each age. The approach uses a combination of demand and schedule feeding which allows baby and parents to get much needed rest for all to stay healthy and happy!

This author is amazing.  And to know he has been a Pediatrician for 26 years gives me every vote of confidence.  Both our babies loved having the care and consistency of a routine that they could count on.  I see that 6 million homes are now enjoying these great methods in helping our infants.  I read the article on Babywisebooks.com (the babywise method) that displays beautifully how the leading 5 experts/doctors on these topics of feeding/sleeping have written books and how Babywise was first to the market with its principles back to 1984.  I am a believer and so are many of my friends.  It also helped me greatly to see that the AAP recommends feeding babies 8-12 times per day and the Babywise methods is exactly within that range.  Happy sleeping
