Using This Blog

This blog is intended to be a quick reference to find answers to questions you encounter while implementing Babywise, Toddlerwise, Childwise, etc. Over the years, it has grown to include all general parenting advice, so you can find answers to most things you encounter with your little one.

I know it is a daunting experience to come upon a blog like this that has been in operation for a while. I have tried to make finding answers as easy as possible for you.

Blog Index

Showing Blog Index Button

    You can get to the index at the top of any page by clicking the link under the main banner.

    The blog index is a document I update with a list of everything published on this blog. It is in alphabetical order by topic. Posts are grouped together in categories so you can quickly find what you are looking for. 

    The index would be huge if every article were listed on one page. I have been putting each category onto its own page and then further categorize. Many articles are listed under more than one category because it logically fits in more than one category. To get to the index you want, just click on the link that says “Index: INSERT TOPIC HERE.” Let’s visit the Baby Whisperer Index. You can see how valuable sub-categories are:

Blog Labels

Another way to navigate through the blog is via blog label. Blog labels are on the right side of the page. They are in alphabetical order by topic. Each topic shows you how many posts are written about the topic. Once you click on the link, you will see all of the posts written under that topic. For topics that have a lot of posts, be sure to click ‘Older Posts’ at the bottom of the page to see more.

Index By Age
In April of 2010, I started adding indexes by age groups. You can click the Index By Age link at the top of any page. From there, you can see all posts for that age group. I think this is especially helpful for parents of Newborns.

Finally, you can search for what you are looking for. At the very top left, you can search through blogger.

If you have a question or problem that is not addressed, simply ask it in the form of a comment on any post. I will respond directly to your comment on the same post. Please do try to find your answer in the many posts I have written before you ask a question. I spend hours answering questions. I am happy to answer them, but the more questions there are, the longer it takes to answer them, which means the longer the wait time before people receive answers. 90% of the answers I give are simply references to posts I have written, so you can more than likely find the answer to your question in this blog if you look.

If you are here to debate, please see my debate policy.

The current wait time for me to answer a question is listed at the top of the blog in my welcome message. If I haven’t answered it within that time frame, I most likely was not notified of it. If so, simply comment again (on the same post) saying you posted a question.

Please feel free to leave your own experiences and advice on the subject of the post also. The more the merrier.

You can subscribe to receive email notifications of posts by entering your email address on the right. Another option is to become a follower of the blog, which is also to the right. You can also follow via facebook. On Facebook, I let you know of polls on the blog as well as remind of giveaways. There is also a nice community of parents who give each other support there. AND you can follow me on Twitter. On Twitter, I mostly share good thoughts. Enjoy!
