    Loved Babywise, but this book is ridiculous!

    I really got a lot out of Babywise - my daughter was sleeping through the nite at 5 weeks. And now that she's almost 14 months, I thought it natural to buy Toddlerwise. Even after reading the negative reviews on other websites, I still wanted to read the book to make my own judgment. But the only new information I learned was in one chapter that's not even written by Ezzo. And I got nothing out of that chapter - maybe some parents would be able to tell their toddler to sit on a blanket and play with a specific toy ('Provide a few toys but instruct your toddler to stay on the blanket until Mommy says its time to get off.' p.45), but my daughter wouldn't be able to sit still for a minute! And I feel it's criminal to restrict any child to a blanket for a set time with a timer - let alone a toddler! I'm all for structure and routine, and we have a fairly structured day at home. But the sample daily routine that is offered seems so micro-managed, I'm not sure how any parent would have time to do anything else but manage their child's playtime! Here's the example from p.61 (paraphrased): '7am - Get children up & dressed, breakfast 8am - Free Play Time 9:30am - Structured Play Time 10am - Blanket Time 10:30am - Structured Time with Mom 11:30am - Structured Time with Siblings 12pm - Lunch, clean up, read books until nap 1pm - Nap 3pm - Gym Class 4pm - Structured Play Time with Siblings 4:30pm - Blanket Time 5pm - Video Time 5:30pm - Dinner, clean up, etc (Mom&Dad - Couch Time) 6:30pm - Family Time with Dad & Mom 7pm - Time with Dad 7:30pm - Bedtime.' This example is a simplified version - it's more complicated because the 2 siblings are sometimes doing different things. I chose to paraphrase just one of the siblings' schedules here. I would highly suggest not buying this book - it's a waste of money. Most of the negative comments on other webistes are warranted - I couldn't imagine ever treating my daughter the way that Ezzo suggests in this book. Even after using the Babywise method, I still feel that using the ideologies in this book border on neglect! Please don't do such a dis-service to your children!

    A Must-Read! Stay at Home mom to two wonderful boys

    After following the advice from Babywise, I borrowed Toddlerwise from a friend. Our 2 1/2 year old slept 12 hours a night by the time he was just three months old. He thrives on routine, and I am always getting comments on how well behaved he is. We've used the same methods with our second son, now 4 months old. It's amazing! The results from the advice in these books are well-behaved, thriving children. Our household runs so smoothly. It takes work and dedication, but it's a worth-while investment for your children. Toddlerwise is as useful as Babywise. I would recommend this book to any parent with preschool children.

    A MUST HAVE FOR ALL MOMS OF TODDLERS

    THE WISDOM IN THIS BOOK IS RIGHT ON. IF YOU FOLLOW THE ADVICE RIGHT FROM THE START, YOU WILL HAVE A WELL BEHAVED AND WELL ADJUSTED CHILD. I ALLOWED MYSELF TO LET GO OF SOME OF THE BASIC PRINCIPLES AND NOW I AM IN THE PROCESS OF 'RETRAINING' MY DAUGHTER, BUT MAKING GREAT PROGRESS. BE PATIENT WITH YOUR CHILD: YOU WILL BE AMAZED BY WHAT YOUR TODDLER IS CAPABLE OF!

    This guy is nuts. Studies have been done on how babies being raised on his principles get to "failure to thrive." Many hospitals tell new parents NOT to follow Ezzo's advice. He is not a medical professional, but based his ideas on Jesus's cries not being answered on the cross. In fact, he's been kicked out of his own church for the harmful crap he preaches. Stay far away!

    My bible!!

    As a first time Mom I was ovewhelmed by all of the opposing info available regarding having a baby. I also became a step mother to two additional girls at the same time. Talk about confusion!! My saving grace was this series of books. Our youngest, my first, is the sweetest, most well mannered, healthiest eater and sleeper I have ever known a child to be, and I used to nanny!! I attribute most of my success to the first two babywise books. I call them my bible. The only advice ever I give an expectant mother is to invest the small amount of time and money it costs to aquire the info in these books. I look forward to the rest of the series which I happen to be purchasing today since it now includes potty training, toddler, child, and pre-teen. Wonderful books make wonderful kids!!!

    amazing- did it again

    Baby Wise has been a wonderful teaching tool, and this is no different. Our child was sleeping thru the night at 9 weeks, only by following the principles of this series. I look forward to the additional titles as she grows.
