Gary Ezzo publishes parenting books known as "Babywise" and "Growing Kids God's Way" that promote child abuse/neglect and babies suffer emotionally and physically from what he teaches in his books - even death. EZZO DESERVES TO BE BANNED!!!

I personally believe the Ezzo method is dangerous to infants! Its unnatural to force an infant to sleep thru the night from such a young age. Unfortunately babies don't always "act" in ways we wish they would. I also believe in putting baby to bed awake, but don't believe that things can be black and white. Every baby is different. If considering babywise please look at this site I have listed above for all the facts. The World Health Organization (WHO) does not recommend this form of parenting as there have been too many cases of failure to thrive and dehydration in infants admitted to hospital whose parents have used the baby wise method.


The fact that they've been under church discipline and under investigation in numerous churches and organizations, either warn against the Ezzo teaching or strongly discourage people from listening to them, INCLUDING THE AMERICAN ACADEMY OF PEDIATRICS.
Please help ban this horrible propaganda.

In my opinion, trying to force someone to eat, play and sleep on a schedule is manipulation of the worst kind. The more helpless the subject of the manipulation, the greater the potential trauma to that individual. Since babies are trying to double their weight in about five months and the infant stomach is about the size of a golf ball, it should be obvious that frequent feeding on the baby's cues is critical. Furthermore, the baby only has about one-fourth of its full brain capacity at birth and grows another 25 percent in the first six months. By one year, the brain is two-thirds developed, and by three years it's up to about 80 percent of adult size. This is a one-time opportunity when the proper amount and kind of nutrients, stroking and touching and carrying the baby actually are building the permanent structure of the neurons. Research shows that any starvation at this time can permanently damage the child.
