I have never thought of it in this way, and I love this point Natasha from Let's Be Brave brings up. I often say, "Let Your Schedule Serve You, You Don't Serve Your Schedule." This is the same idea. You are not a slave to the program. You are the parent in the "Parent Directed Feeding" program. That means you are the master. The boss. The head-honcho. Not the peon.
" Babywise provides the skeleton for structure; it's a parenting tool. It doesn't get to make demands of you or dictate exactly how you sleep train your baby. That's all you, mama. What it can do for you, however, is add support, structure, and a framework for getting your child on a schedule. "
Natahsa has such a unique perspective because she is a foster parent who has used Babywise with all of her children. She shares that Babywise has never failed her even though she has never had a child from day one of life. Go read the whole thing today! I super love it.
