This daddy is obsessed!

Jason loves his little girl!!!! It is so cute to see them together and he takes such great care of her when I have school work or clinicals! It is so sad to be away from her but I know she is in the best hands so it makes it a little better/easier. He sends me so many pics too I love it!! Like the many faces of hazel pic! We are so blessed with our happy baby girl! She slept almost 8 hours the other night and I was so worried something was wrong- but she seems great- oh and how and when should I be doing a sleeping schedule?! I just bought baby wise and am starting to read it- any other suggestions for books or sleeping schedules?!

eeek! don't do babywise---- there are reports now about babies having failure to thrive because the parents aren't listening to the cues their babies are sending. call me later. love you dev!

Ditto Brittani. If you don't have it pick up The Baby Book by Dr. Sears. Some of his stuff is a little "out there" for me, but the general information is great and very comprehensive. She is still very little for a "schedule" and if you just watch her cues she will tell you when she is hungry and when she is sleepy. Your mama intuition is better than any book. :-)

I LOVE Babywise and trust me...Beckett is thriving and was sleeping through the night (11-12 hours) since 3 months. I started with Beckett at about a month and a half. The first month and a half he slept ALL the time. I love how Babywise has you switch the order of things and feed them, play with them and then put them to sleep. My sister used in on all of her kids too and the oldest one is 9 and they are all sweet, happy, well developed kids. I know quite a few other moms that used Babywise and loved it too. Obviously use your own judgement and definitely follow your baby's cues. Babywise tells you to do that but can also be a little strict. Use the principles and do what you are comfortable with. The basis of Babywise is awesome in my opinion! I'm so thankful I did it!

You are so lucky. Little mister is just sleeping 4 hours straight and I'm so sleep deprived. I'd kill for 8 hours! :)

I love Baby Wise. I am using it now with Kristoffer and its working out great. I would have to say it is a little strict for me but I definitely follow the principles and it seems to be working for us, we will have to just wait and see! Good luck and if you need anything let me know!

OLD ADVICE BUT WISE

FEED NEWBORNS DURING THE DAY
EVERY 2 1/2 TO 3 HOURS, IF YOU HAVE TO WAKE THEM, UNTIL THE LAST FEEDING OF THE NIGHT, AROUND 10PM TO 11PM. THEN DON'T WAKE THEM THEY WILL WAKE WHEN HUNGRY.BEING FULL DURING THE DAY THEY SLEEP BETTER DURING THE NIGHT. ALWAYS MADE SENSE TO ME, NO DIFFERENT THAN US. SAW IT WORK FOR MANY BABIES AND MOTHERS...............
