In this story, a mother of two shares some of her success with Babywise.
Our family loves Babywise because it helps us by having the right priorities in our family - our babies are not the center but merely part and a wonderful addition to our family. Our first child had silent acid reflux, did not sleep through the night until he was 4.5 months old, and struggled with more than one hour long naps. However, with God's grace and kindness, we plowed through the difficulties, had Carter on a schedule and have seen unbeliveable fruit from benefiting from Babywise. The schedule was such a blessing while my husband underwent a bone marrow transplant when our son was one year old. I knew when he would eat, play, and sleep and was able to leave him with friends and family members with confidence because he was predictable! At 22 months old, he now sleeps 11 hours at night and takes one 2-3 hour nap in the day in his new toddler bed - thank you Babywise!
Our 3.5 month old daughter is a completely different story, almost an "angel baby" as BabyWhisperer refers. She slept through the night at 6 weeks and today sleeps from 8:30 p.m. - 7 a.m. She's working on a combination 3-4 hour schedule, seemingly able to go 4 hours without needing to stretch her (completely opposite of our little boy). God was kind to bless us with a sleeping, healthy, happy child. I now know what Babywise means when it says that onlookers comment on such a happy baby, and they wonder why she is so happy; our family knows why - it's God's kindness along with Babywise!
Thank you for your diligence in posting on your blog. It is such a blessing for our family, such a great resource for our friends, and an encouragement to continue on during the difficult days. Thanks again!
