Book Review: On Becoming Baby Wise: Book Two

I just finished reading On Becoming Baby Wise, Book Two: Parenting Your Pretoddler 5 to 15 months and thought it was great!  We are a baby wise family, getting Trigg on a schedule has worked great for us.  Trigg was sleeping through the night since 8 weeks and hasn't skipped a beat since.  We agree with the Baby Wise philosphy of parenting and as I said, it has worked great for us.We found book two to be very beneficial and informative as Trigg is starting to move into that pretoddler phase. 
The book starts with chapter 1 called "Back to the Basics" and they unpack the priority of marriage!  A healthy marriage is essential to the emotional health of children in the home.
They move on to the topic of Moral Foundations and stress how teaching your children self control from an early age will only benefit them and  you as your kids grow!  They also offer good tips on how to teach your children.
The book also addresses mealtime activities, highchair manners, waketime activites...all very helpful as we are getting to those stages!
They dedicate a chapter to discipline and being consistent in discipline.  The last chapter talks about naps and sleeptime.
They finish the book addressing language development, baby sign language and a few hints on potty training.
All and all, this book was very helpful and will be a good resource as Trigg continues to grow and learn!
