Twelve chapters cover feeding philosophies, monitoring baby's growth, establishing baby's routine, handling multiple births, and the ever-controversial chapter on when baby cries. The 52-week method involves four phases, beginning with "Stabilization" from birth to week 8. During weeks 9 through 15 ("Extended Night"), babies learn to sleep through the night. Ezzo and Bucknam attempt to teach the difference between a baby's many cries and advise parents on various responses to these cries. Critics dislike Ezzo's strong belief that "child-centered parenting" (feeding baby whenever it cries, sleeping with and "wearing" baby) fosters demanding, insecure toddlers. But for parents who are tired of being tired--or whose previous experience with child-centered parenting supports Ezzo's theory--it may be worth a read. --Liane Thomas --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
You know what the author of the book would say to that...I wasn't doing it right!
Our routine was sleep. eat. play. sleep. then eat. then play, then baby is tired and ready to sleep. then baby wakes and is ready to eat. and so on.
We are all parents and the book was developed to help parents recognize a childs needs and to help nurture them to be happier babies.
Get this at the library. Your kid will either sleep or it won't. No book will 'make' a baby sleep. If your baby cries, go pick it up for goodness sakes! Rock them, hug them. Read morePublished 13 hours ago by S. Fjestad
