    26 year Pediatrician and father of four - Dr. Robert Bucknam, M.D. says:
    "Change! It seems to be a way of life for parents. In our rapidly expanding, knowledge based society where technology changes everyday, new innovations impact life styles and the way people learn. Parenting curriculums, once designed to cover large blocks of developmental time are less effective today than years gone by. Precision teaching with concise thoughts for specific age ranges seems to be the way of educational life. Our newest curriculum reflects these changes. The communication and dissemination of early childhood principles are easily and naturally divided into four developmental stages, starting at birth and going to thirty-six months. Each stage represents new growth transitions requiring parents to accommodate the changes taking place as their child's grows. Our early childhood curriculum now include:
    Stage One: Birth to 5 months-- On Becoming Babywise
    Stage Two: 5 to 12 months -- On Becoming Babywise 11
    Stage Three: 12 - 18 months -- On Becoming Pretoddlerwise
    Stage Four: 18 - 36 months -- On Becoming Toddlerwise
    Stage Five: 36 - 84 months -- On Becoming Childwise
    We continue this series where Babywise 11 left off. During the next 180 days, the newly emerging walking, talking, exploring, child begins a developmental metamorphosis from babyhood to toddlerhood."

    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

    BOOK REVIEWS:

    "From a pediatrician's perspective, this is a sigh of welcome relief for sleepless, weary parents."
    DAVID BLANK, M.D., LONGMONT, CO

    "Since being introduced to the principles of Babywise, I have been convinced of its effectiveness in establishing sleep patterns and in decreasing the frequency of problems associated with infant feeding."
    CRAIG LLOYD, M.D., BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA

    "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 s
