A day in the life of Elizabeth

This is what a typical day looks like for Elizabeth:

8:00am- wake up

8:00-10:00am- breakfast and playtime

10:00-12:00am- nap

12:00-2:00pm- lunch and playtime

2:00-4:00pm-nap

4:00-8:00pm- snack, playtime, dinner bath

8:00pm-bedtime.

This is what Elizabeth's day has looked like since she was 12 weeks! The only thing difference is that she used to take a 45 minute cat-nap from 6:00-6:45pm. We are so thankful for such a delightful baby and for the wisdom of friends to help us apply Babywise. It has made things such a breeze for us. I highly recommend this book and would be glad to help if anyone feels overwhelmed or uncertain.

I had my doubts about Babywise but after seeing it work with Elizabeth I believe it works but you have to use your motherly common sense when applying all techniques and Melissa did a great job of that by knowing her babies needs and wants..your a great mom and I am proud of you...your a great dad to jon love you both

We did Babywise with Malaki too. It's nice to see how it does work when paired with flexible and loving parents. And it makes me feel much less weird to hear that someone else used it successfully. (ha)
