Halfway through this BFBN week! So far we have had a couple great posts dispelling some common babywise myths! Today we have two more posts to check out.
Natasha from let’s be brave talking about how babywise works for you. She 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.” This is so true. I really think babywise provides suggestions and a guideline to follow. Implementation is totally up to each individual parent. You can read the rest of her post here: Babywise works for you (not the other way around)
Shea from The Moses Home has a post about how schedules actually allow for flexibility and don’t keep us rigid. I like how she notes, “When you have your basic day to day living schedule working well for you and baby, baby knows what to expect for his day. There is a sweet, real security created that the baby learns to trust.” I know I feel more secure when I know what to expect from my day. It just makes sense that kids feel the same. Check out what Shea has to say here: How schedules keep us flexible, not rigid
