    Hi Valerie– I just found your blog…am a second time mom with a 8 week old. I didn't find babywise with my first until she was 3 mos (is now 3 yrs) and am trying to implement now with my 8 week old, but am wavering in confidence. So happy to have found this! I'd love to see what your schedule looks like now–from what I gather, our infants are about the same age–and I'm struggling with keeping little one asleep for her whole nap. Recently deswaddled her–she was breaking free–so feel like we're experiencing that adjustment as well. Thanks! Maureen
