A friend passed a copy of Babywise to me. She used their theories with all three of her kids successfully and they are great kids that seem to be well adjusted. Anyone have any opinions on this parenting style?? I was reading some comments on it online but they seemed really harsh. I think it sounds like a reasonable plan. Also- with this parenting style do the newborns start out in their nursery instead of in a bassinet in with mom & dad?

I used babywise but modified it to fit my daughter. I used the schedule pretty religiously and my baby was sleeping through the night at nine weeks. She was in a ba__sinet in our room until she was 4 weeks. I think that you have to take all the advice out there and take bits and pieces of this and that to fit you and your baby. My baby had colic and I used other techniques to sooth her but I stuck to the schedule.

Thanks for your opinion Jen- I think it sounded like it made sense. I just don't understand how you transition your baby from the ba__sinet in your bedroom to their crib in the nursery?

You should ask in the 'infant care'. I've seen people talk about it there.
