I love this concept from Katrina at Mama's Organized Chaos. Babywise is all about learning the ideal schedule! Would it be awesome to have a baby sleep until 8 AM each day? Yes! And some babies do! There are others, however, who wake up at 7 no matter what. My oldest was (and is) like that. Mamas with big dreams of sleeping in have to hang that dream up and go with the ideal schedule for their individual baby. Why? Because that is what Babywise is. Babywise is learning about your individual baby and going with what is best for him/her.

The ladies of the BFBN will be discussing these myths this week, also. Here is the schedule:
