This book needs a good editor. It may have five-star content (won’t know till I try it), but I’d give it one star for the organization (hence the average 3 stars I’m listing). I don’t understand the raving reviews and frequent suggestions. I have a hard time understanding this book because the ordering of topics seems super scatterbrained.

Poorly written, poorly organized. Although this "parenting" book claims to be the perfect marriage of two extremes, its arguments and claims are extremes of their own. The only takeaway from this book that I will be implementing with our second child is the need to be more structured in our day when it comes to feeding and sleeping schedules, however, I will be very, very loosely interpreting Ezzo's idea of structure when applying it to our family.
On Becoming Babywise is a helpful book about creating a schedule for babies. I’m glad I read it and am looking forward to putting some of the ideas into practice. My only complaint is that it was a little repetitive, but I’m guessing I’ll appreciate that soon.
