As a new mama, things aren’t always as we imagined they would be.

I don’t know about you, but I thought I would have this magical intuition about what my baby wanted and needed. Guess what? No such luck.

I knew I loved my baby and wanted to care for him, but I was overwhelmed and at a loss when it came to knowing what he needed and when.

This is why Babywise was so helpful to me and gave me the confidence I needed as a new mama.

1) It Gives You A Guide

First of all, it was a guide for me. You can read more about the Babywise method –> HERE, but for the sake of this post I’ll just touch on it briefly.

Essentially, Babywise advocates for getting your baby into an eat, wake, sleep routine starting around 2 weeks of age. Because of this routine, it helped me tremendously as far as knowing what my baby needed and when.

Depending on the time of the day and where in the EWS (eat, wake, sleep) cycle we were in, I could much better figure out what he needed. If it was near nap time, I knew he was fussy because he likely needed to sleep. If it was near feeding time, then he most probably needed feeding.

It took a lot of the guesswork out of things and meant I could preempt his needs before they even arose.

2) You Know Their Needs Are Met

Because Babywise gave me a guide it also gave me the confidence that my baby’s needs were being met. If we had been through the EWS cycle and he was still fussy, I knew something else had to be at play.

It could be gas, overstimulation, etc, but I knew that his tummy was full and that he was well-rested. A well-fed baby lends itself to a well-rested baby and vice versa.

3) You Can Think Straight

For many parents, the big drawcard to using Babywise is the claims it makes about helping babies sleep through the night. Understandably so, because who loves to be sleep deprived?

Now, Babywise never advocates leaving babies to be hungry or neglected. However, the routine they encourage, as well as the healthy sleep habits do tend to mean that babies learn to sleep through the night sooner.

For me, this helped my confidence as a mother tremendously. I don’t think straight when I’m not getting much sleep. I also struggle if I don’t get a break from the day now and then.

I’m not into motherhood martyrs who believe that you sacrifice every inch of yourself for your children. Simple logic shows that if you do that you have nothing left to give them.

Because of Babywise, I have been able to develop a healthy routine (See –> THIS POST) so that I can be the best version of myself for the sake of my husband and children.
