Distinguished pediatrician Dr Robert Bucknam, M.D. and co-author Gary Ezzo are two of the world's leading experts on infant management concepts. In this revised 5th edition, they have updated their groundbreaking approach which has found favor with over six million parents in all 50 states and has been translated into 16 languages around the world.  For over 20 years, On Becoming Babywise has been the de facto newborn parenting manual for naturally synchronizing your baby's feeding time, waketime and nighttime sleep cycles, so the whole family can sleep through the night.  In his 26th year as a licensed Pediatrician, Dr. Robert Bucknam, M.D. along with co-author Gary Ezzo,  demonstrate how order and stability are mutual allies of every newborn's metabolism and how parents can take advantage of these biological propensities. In particular, they note how an infant's body responds to the influences of parental routine or the lack thereof.  Early chapters start with explorations of everyday aspects of infant management such as the three basic elements of daytime activities for newborns: feeding time, waketime, and naptime. Practical discussions then focus on broad and niche topics including feeding philosophies, baby sleep problems, baby scheduling challenges, nap routines, sleep training multiples, baby sleeping props, Colic and Reflux and many other dimensions which impact breast feeding schedules, bottle feeding tips and baby sleep training.  Five resource Appendixes provide additional reference material:  1) Taking care of baby and mom  2) A timeline of what to expect and when  3) Baby Sleep Training Problems and Solutions  4) Monitoring Your Baby's Growth  5) Healthy Baby Growth Charts  On Becoming Babywise is more than an infant-management concept. It is a mindset for successful parenthood. It can help any parent develop a plan that meets both the needs of a new baby and of the entire family. These principles have worked for millions of parents and, when applied with common sense to your unique situation, can work wonderfully for you too! Recommended by doctors across the country."As a mom, I parented both ways.  As a certified lactation educator, I know how discouraging it is to feed a baby around the clock with no apparent advantage and how fatigue will affect her milk supply.  I also know how discouraging the first eighteen months of parenting can be without a plan.  I know, because with my first child, I did everything the opposite of what is taught in this book.  Before my second baby was born, I was introduced to the Babywise concepts.  Applying these principles revolutionized my thinking.  Instead of being in baby bondage, I was liberated to be the mother God wanted me to be.  I have consistently used this series with the women I counsel.   These mothers have met with tremendous success, whether bottle or breastfeeding."                        -- Barbara Philips, R.N., C.L.E.  Los Angeles, California

Summary

Distinguished pediatrician Dr Robert Bucknam, M.D. and co-author Gary Ezzo are two of the world's leading experts on infant management concepts. In this revised 5th edition, they have updated their groundbreaking approach which has found favor with over six million parents in all 50 states and has been translated into 16 languages around the world. 

For over 20 years, On Becoming Babywise has been the de facto newborn parenting manual for naturally synchronizing your baby's feeding time, waketime and nighttime sleep cycles, so the whole family can sleep through the night. 

In his 26th year as a licensed Pediatrician, Dr. Robert Bucknam, M.D. along with co-author Gary Ezzo,  demonstrate how order and stability are mutual allies of every newborn's metabolism and how parents can take advantage of these biological propensities. In particular, they note how an infant's body responds to the influences of parental routine or the lack thereof. 

Early chapters start with explorations of everyday aspects of infant management such as the three basic elements of daytime activities for newborns: feeding time, waketime, and naptime.

Practical discussions then focus on broad and niche topics including feeding philosophies, baby sleep problems, baby scheduling challenges, nap routines, sleep training multiples, baby sleeping props, Colic and Reflux and many other dimensions which impact breast feeding schedules, bottle feeding tips and baby sleep training. 

Five resource Appendixes provide additional reference material: 

1) Taking care of baby and mom 
2) A timeline of what to expect and when 
3) Baby Sleep Training Problems and Solutions 
4) Monitoring Your Baby's Growth 
5) Healthy Baby Growth Charts 

On Becoming Babywise is more than an infant-management concept. It is a mindset for successful parenthood. It can help any parent develop a plan that meets both the needs of a new baby and of the entire family. These principles have worked for millions of parents and, when applied with common sense to your unique situation, can work wonderfully for you too!

"As a mom, I parented both ways.  As a certified lactation educator, I know how discouraging it is to feed a baby around the clock with no apparent advantage and how fatigue will affect her milk supply.  I also know how discouraging the first eighteen months of parenting can be without a plan.  I know, because with my first child, I did everything the opposite of what is taught in this book.  Before my second baby was born, I was introduced to the Babywise concepts.  Applying these principles revolutionized my thinking.  Instead of being in baby bondage, I was liberated to be the mother God wanted me to be.  I have consistently used this series with the women I counsel.   These mothers have met with tremendous success, whether bottle or breastfeeding."                       -- Barbara Philips, R.N., C.L.E.  Los Angeles, California"From a pediatrician's perspective, this is a sigh of welcome relief for sleepless, weary parents."          -- DAVID BLANK, M.D. of LONGMONT, CO  "My introduction to On Becoming Babywise came over 20 years ago when a discerning member in my practice noticed my frustration with the growing numbers of fatigued mothers, fussy babies, and their sleep nights.  I was handed a set of audio tapes of this series.  Being profoundly impressed with the insightfulness and relevance  of the content, I began applying the principles in my practice. Word of mouth among our community has helped our practice grow exponentially.                  -Dr. Jim Pearson, M.D.   Johnson City, Tennessee "I am a practicing pediatrician and assistant professor of pediatrics.  Residents and new mothers I work with have found On Becoming Babywise overwhelmingly successful.  My residents report a positive difference in the confidence of new mothers who work with this plan compared to those who do not.  The freedom Babywise provides a new mother is so refreshing.   My parents become baby-wise with Babywise."                   - Dr. Linda Meloy, M.D.   Richmond, Virginia "I have been successfully using On Becoming Babywise in my general Pediatric practice for the last several years.  I have found it to be a very helpful resource for parents.  I think any negative outcomes associated with this material is due to the misapplication of the principles." - Dr. Thomas Gill, M.D., Pediatrician,  Johnson City,Tennessee"Babywise provides sound parenting advise and common sense pediatric care to many parents who are confused, frustrated, and downright sleep deprived.  As a pediatrician and father of four, my wife and I routinely receive positive feedback regarding our children's behavior and sleep habits.  Parents feel confident and relaxed when they have a plan and a goal for their infant and family.  Once a family has found success with the principles of Babywise, they pass along their satisfaction to every new parent they meet.  Simply put, "It works!"                                               -  Dr. David M. Miller, M.D.    Superior, Colorado "My introduction to On Becoming Babywise came over 20 years ago when a discerning member in my practice noticed my frustration with the growing numbers of fatigued mothers, fussy babies, and their sleep nights.  I was handed a set of audio tapes of this series.  Being profoundly impressed with the insightfulness and relevance  of the content, I began applying the principles in my practice.  The change was dramatic, as I watched the incidence of colicky babies, sleep-disturbed and frustrated parents drop precipitously. Word of mouth among our community has helped our practice grow exponentially.  I cannot imagine any pediatrician that has come in contact with this resource not making it apart of their practice."                                              -Dr. Jim Pearson, M.D.      Johnson City, Tennessee "As a pediatrician, I cannot argue with the success of On Becoming Babywise.  It is such a practical approach to parenting.  It provides infants with needed structure and stability and brings the joy and love so needed in our homes today.  The effects of not using On Becoming Babywise show up very quickly.  That is why I have made these principles a priority of discussion in every well-child care visit.  Parents constantly tell me, "It changed our lives."                                                          -- Dr. Janet Dunn, M.D.   Chatsworth, California
