What is so bad about BabyWise? I have not seen it- but I used the Ezzo’s ‘Parenting Newborns’ twenty years ago and found it not nearly as strict as some things my mom had been told to do when she was bottle feeding me and my sibs 50 years ago. Obviously couples need to work with their doctors to be sure a baby is gaining weight whatever approach one takes.

I’m with Mike on BabyWise.

Michael can be a guest blogger on my blog so that he can answer the questions. I’m not doing it if Michael’s not doing it. :-)
