PDXMomma, March 24, 2011 (view all comments by PDXMomma)
I read this book when I had my first child and found it to be completely unrealistic, and also detrimental to my milk supply. Beyond that, I recently found out that the American Academy of Pediatrics has come out AGAINST this book and its medically unsound advise. I took my copy off of my bookshelf and threw it into my recycling bin (after destroying it, lest it fall intact into the hands of yet another unsuspecting mother).

See excerpt from the AAP website:

'Babywise' advice linked to dehydration, failure to thrive
Matthew Aney M.D.

Expectant parents often fear the changes a new baby will bring, especially sleepless nights. What new parent wouldn't want a how-to book that promises their baby will be sleeping through the night by three to eight weeks?

One such book, On Becoming Babywise, has raised concern among pediatricians because it outlines an infant feeding program that has been associated with failure to thrive (FTT), poor milk supply failure, and involuntary early weaning. A Forsyth Medical Hospital Review Committee, in Winston-Salem N.C., has listed 11 areas in which the program is inadequately supported by conventional medical practice. The Child Abuse Prevention Council of Orange County, Calif., stated its concern after physicians called them with reports of dehydration, slow growth and development, and FTT associated with the program. And on Feb. 8, AAP District IV passed a resolution asking the Academy to investigate "Babywise," determine the extent of its effects on infant health and alert its members, other organizations and parents of its findings.

Great system for sleep, addresses the nursing in the night issue, goes month by month for developing children and their changing needs. The theory works, and is adaptable to each child's specific personality and needs. Saves stress and sleeplessness for mom! Read it while in the hospital having the baby, and you'll be glad!
