"I have been successfully using On Becoming Babywise in my general Pediatric practice for the last several years. I have found it to be a very helpful resource for parents. I think any negative outcomes associated with this material is due to the misapplication of the principles."

A person I work with recommended this book to me. Much of the book is about basic parenting, which is fine, but probably is only helpful if your baby is under a few weeks old and you are a first time parent.
It’s not my style of parenting. My daughter is 4 months old and she still eats every 3 hours (medically necessary), even at night (and I work full time). I’ve adjusted. She is not a burden in my life as the book will make it seem. I know these baby snuggles and the way she sweetly holds my hand is limited and I will soak up every minute of it.
I feel like the techniques suggested can easily become neglectful learned helplessness all under the rouse of “self-soothing,” especially at a very young age.
The over-obsession with scheduling is unreasonable unless you’re a stay-at-home parent totally dedicated to it and rarely do anything to shake it up on the weekend. Not to mention how limiting nursing time to this degree can have detrimental effects to supply.
This book is constructed to give new parents anxiety and that they should worry about every variant in the baby’s schedule. The book compared the baby waking up early from a second nap to the anxiety you should feel if you’re on a radio show about to go live and your mics don’t work. This is not a situation that warrants anxiety. Relax. Enjoy parenthood. Don’t micromanage your baby. Enjoy their smiles and their drool all over everything from scootching around the living room.
Also, it should be mentioned that the studies used have extremely small sample sizes that would not be accepted under a medical discipline.
I was nervous this book wouldn't apply to breastfeeding babies but that is far from the truth. Give it a shot!
I believe these sleep books prey 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.

I was very focused on staying on schedule when we first started to get him into routine. But now at 5 months we can be a little flexible knowing that it won't affect his night time sleep (because let's face it, I love a full night's sleep).
These principles aren't for every parent. They worked for us and we have a very happy baby who falls asleep independently.
