Reviews - What do customers think about On Becoming Baby Wise: Book II (Parenting Your Pretoddler Five to Fifteen Months)?
Child Training Is Ok Folks Mar 23, 2007
It may not be your choice for how to raise your child, it may not be how your child responds... But folks, we are all different and one thing for certain, Christ taught us not to judge, lest we be judged... All families are different and there is NO NO NO ABUSE advocated in this book!
From a devout Dr. Sears, LLL, attachment parenting Mom--Reb Bradley and Rick Fugate are OK too. This is a method for a more structured family. It isn't for me, but as I say, I do advocate the Child Training Tips in Bradley's and Fugate's books, even for a far less structured mom.
Every family has a system... this may or may not be yours. It is an interesting and insightful read.
OKay, but not what I expected... Jan 10, 2007
I swore to all my new Mommy friends that this was THE sleep book for them. When my son hit 5 months, I thought it would be only natural to following along the Babywise method for continuing his excellent sleep habits. While the book does address sleep patterns in older babies, it was focused more on eating, discipline, play, and other topics. I was hoping for more of the continuum described. Oh well, it was only a few $$ so worth those.
Good Book Jan 9, 2007
As with any parenting books. Most of it is common sense, and the rest are simply tips/hints for improvement. Take what you want to use from this book, and incorporate it into your life. I think this was a VERY well written book and hit on all the points tht I was hoping. Good addendum to the first BabyWise. I would recommend this book - quick read and good pointers.
Helpful tool Dec 17, 2006
While my review for the first book in this series was excellent, I did not find this book quite as informative (you must remember that parenting is the beginning can be intimidating, so perhaps that's why the first book was more helpful). I would still recommend reading it, as there are certainly a few items that were useful.
Babies and Toddlers Well Mannered Great Book! Nov 14, 2006
Hi I am the mother of twin baby boys and I have shared my review in all the books that these authors have written.
This book has taught my babies to be so WELL mannered and even in their highchairs.
Typically, when you feed any young baby solids you get food thrown at you, on the floor, spitting up food hands in their hair and mostly all the jar food has gone to waste. My baby boys do none of the above!!! When we go out and I feed them, people are just amazed that they keep their hands to their side. I can place a plate on their tray and they don't even touch it. My boys were doing this starting at 4 months old. Yes, that young. This book teaches you highchair ediquette. How to get your baby to eat anything you give them etc. My babies don't have tantrums and they are so happy this book is another winner. Consistency is the key and you will be so impressed!
