Summary

Distinguished pediatrician Dr Robert Bucknam and co-author Gary Ezzo are two of the world's leading experts on infant management concepts. In this revised 6th 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 20 languages around the world. 

For over 25 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 29th year as a licensed pediatrician, Dr. Robert Bucknam 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.

Godsend for a first time mum

This audio book far exceeded my expectations! I have had no time to read up on parenting and with my due date fast approaching, I’ve been feeling exceptionally anxious about my lack of preparation. This book, I feel, covers all of the essential areas. I feel much better equipped. I’d almost go as far as to say confident :)

Great content but missing useful PDF download

I have heard great things about this book and the methodology; however, the unfortunate issue with listening to it rather than having a physical book is there are appendix and charts they reference that are hard to follow with the reader. It would have been helpful to have these available as a PDF download as a part of this purchase. The reader is pretty dry but then again the material isn't necessarily riveting so I suppose it fits. I would suggest buying the book in addition to the audiobook so that you can follow along better and have the charts they reference.

Great Resource

A great tool for parents in the chaotic times of welcoming new babies into their lives! Adults love routines, babies are no different. Babywise will help you achieve that routine.

Babywise is amazing!

Babywise is truly a gift to parents- or anyone with an infant in their care. My son was really struggling with falling asleep and staying asleep. When he was 5-6 months old, I thought that I was going to lose my mind. Someone suggested that I read Babywise, and as soon as I started implementing the routine that is so clearly explained in the book, we were on a great schedule within a couple of weeks. I was happier, he was happier, and we were both sleeping.

Great book for any parent!

This book was a life-saver for us and our three boys (now ages 7, 4, and 2). The routine was freeing for both my wife and I, as well as our newborns. It lays out a great guideline to help your baby sleep, which less face it- is good for everyone in the family. It brought sanity to our routine, and I would recommend it to anyone with a new baby in their life.

Computer voice is so horrible

Horrible computer voice. Can’t listen even 10min - falling asleep right away. Book should be good. Many friends recommended. But try different edition.

Confusing, terrible book

This book doesn’t help anyone at all. This book is basically a pile of vomit that spews very confusingly read and varied information. I can not believe this was published.
