I will be gone for about a week. I am unsure if I will be able to check comments or not. I will answer questions as soon as I can. Have a great week!

    I LOVE This blog… I have learned so much in the last few days from it. Its completely different to read the book than to see it “in action” in your blog. I’ve figured out that she IS overtired, and I’ve been getting her to sleep in each 3 hour cycle. She has a really short window between tired enough and too tired (this sounds like it might be common from all the other posters) and I was missing it, but thanks to your nap cues post, I figured it out.Really, this is so great! I’ve also been keeping a log, which is really helpful. Thank you so much!One other question, I tried your communities about babywise, but the Maya’s mom one is closed. And I tried to post about BW on babycenter and got hammered!! I had no idea this was so controversial (and I don’t understand why), I can’t figure out how it could possibly cause “failure to thrive” and “death”! Seems dramatic… Aside from your Maya’s mom community, which is your next active one? I would like to share ideas (read: get ideas!!) from others doing this.Thanks again, you must be swamped with questions, I appreciate your time.

    Katie, I am so sorry I didn’t see your post earlier! I recently updated the online resources post. MM closed in September. Most of us moved over to Babycenter. We have a private group there so moms can post without being trashed on :)It is in the new Babycenter Community. The group is called Babywise.
