On Becoming Baby Wise: Giving Your Infant the Gift of Nighttime Sleep by Gary EzzoThe infant management concepts presented in this book have found favor with over two million parents and twice as many contented babies. On Becoming Babywise brings hope to the tired and bewildered parents looking for an alternative to sleepless nights and fussy babies. The Babywise Parent Directed Feeding concept has enough structure to bring security and order to your babys world, yet enough flexibility to give mom freedom to respond to any need at any time. It teaches parents how to lovingly guide their babys day rather than be guided or enslaved to the infants unknown needs.
The information contained within On Becoming Babywise is loaded with success. Comprehensive breast-feeding follow-up surveys spanning three countries, of mothers using the PDF method verify that as a result of the PDF concepts, 88% breast-feed, compared to the national average of only 54% (from the National Center for Health Statistics). Of these breast-feeding mothers, 80% of them breast-feed exclusively without a formula complement. And while 70% of our mothers are still breast-feeding after six months, the national average encourage to follow demand feeding without any guidelines is only 20%. The mean average time of breast-feeding for PDF moms is 33 1/2 weeks, well above the national average. Over 50% of PDF mothers extend their breast-feeding toward and well into the first year.
Added to these statistics is another critical factor. The average breast-fed PDF baby sleeps continuously through night seven to eight hours between weeks seven and nine. Healthy sleep in infants is analogous to healthy growth and development. Find out for yourself why a world of parents and pediatricians utilize the concepts found in On Becoming Babywise.
MONTH 6 SCHEDULE
Babywise schedules used by real Babywise babies. This post gives sample schedule Babywise schedules for the sixth month. Baby is five months old at the beginning of this period and moves to 6 months old by the end. Sometimes she eats after only two hours in the evening since she is extending her day out right now. This is a temporary situation and it is fine with me for now. I find that preferable to having a fourth nap and eating at a 3 hour interval, and thus having a later bedtime.
Babywise schedule month 6: for baby around 6 months of age. For about half of the month, Caroline struggled to take the nap, but needed it as she was not taking long enough naps during the day, nor was she able to handle extended wake times. Halfway into the month, however, Caroline decided to refuse the catnap all together. The details of how we finally dropped the catnap can be found in that post. It was a struggle, but it was one that needed to happen. When looking at the schedule below, I have written out the new schedule for this month.

The book helped us to sleep train our children and to build this babywise 6 month schedule through 12 month schedule. Once we hit 6 months old with each baby I breathed a sigh of relief that we had made it to an easier season!

Life got much easier once she transitioned to this schedule as it at last shifted her to just two longer naps a day and she started sleeping them much more reliably! As I mentioned, she also ate meals approximately at regular meal time so it was much easier to be out for evening activities without disrupting the sleep needs in her baby schedule. Ellie also became increasingly distracted with getting her formula in from months old and therefore often ended up needing to drink it in her quiet bedroom right before naps and thus straying from the babywise eat-wake-sleep routine even further.
So I have been trying this since baby was 2 months old, it worked great so far! My daughter was sleeping thru the night since she was 3. Also this means that she had 6 feedings in a 24 hour period for almost 2. She is happy during the day, I just want her to go back to sleeping thru the night and I don't know if with me feeding her to sleep in the night for this past week I ruined all the hard work of the past months. So how do I go back? All the schedule that I see online babies go to sleep way earlier pm could this be the problem?
This post gives sample schedule Babywise schedules for the seventh month. Baby is six months old moving to 7 months old. Kaitlyn basically started to refuse to wake up and eat, so I consented and dropped it. Our schedule typically looks like this: —feed with solids— T prunes and 2 T of oatmeal mixed in —nap —feed with solids—4 T of pears OR peaches and 2 T of oatmeal mixed in and 2 T of green beans OR peas with 1 T oatmeal mixed in and some fruit —nap —feed —nap —solids—half a banana mixed with 2 T oatmeal OR T applesauce mixed with 2 T oatmeal and sweet potatoes T OR butternut squash T and some fruit —feed, then bedtime.
