|Babywise recommends a parent-directed feeding schedule of 8-10 feedings a day for newborns, which contrasts with the American Academy of Pediatrics' recommendations that nursing mothers be encouraged to have 8-12 breastfeedings a day [...] Babywise [...] [notes] that by the 13th week the baby will have only 4 to 7 feedings a day and between 4 and 6 months of age, the book calls for babies to have 4 to 6 feedings a day.|
Summary? Your baby has the devil in it. If you pick up or feed or let the baby sleep any way BUT the way the book says you are going straight to hell and damning your child's soul. Oh and it'll be an insufferable brat. That was my take on it, anyway.
And letting a baby cry is comparable to Christ suffering on the Cross -- it is necessary for salvation.
I skimmed it at the bookstore for curiousity and read something like this...
nursing a child on demand (esp. past one year of age) relates to adulthood obesity since the child isn't learning to "control" their hunger.
I just lauged outloud at how absurb that is.
