BFBN Week (Babywise Myths): Babywise Works For You, Not the Other Way Around

One of the things I LOVE LOVE LOVE about Babywise mamas, is that they are open-minded and generally not judgmental of other parenting styles! Every encounter that I’ve had with EVERY Babywise mom has been the same in this aspect. They are loving their schedules, but are supportive of parents that want to use feed on demand strategies. Most are very aware of the fact that Babywise isn’t for everyone, and are ok with that. Some Babywise parents use cry it out, others do not. Some breastfeed, others do not. We all have a common link, however- Babywise. We all help each other succeed by helping other moms figure out how Babywise can work for them! Today, Natasha is talking about just that!

Natasha writes:

“Many people who think of babywise immediately think of hyperscheduling or cry it out or whatever.  And while babywise does incorporate a schedule and encourages you to allow your baby to learn how to self-soothe, what it’s NOT doing is demanding you stick to a rigid schedule or let your baby cry for hours and hours and hours.  Babywise provides the skeleton for structure; it’s a parenting tool.”
