Hi again Sue,
So sorry to babble on and on, I just get so excited!! Oops! grin
Baby Wise is a brilliant book, so practical. I checked out on my local library website (since I actually happened to be on there at the moment I recieved your post) and it isn't available here. Mind you I think our collections are a little prehistoric. I also checked up a couple of websites for you and will include the links if it will let me. Angus & Robertson and Collins bookstores both come up with it in their data bases, but when I realised it was accessing them from the US, I decided to check e-bay. There are a few copies on there (also in US) so I included the direct link to them and the other is to a large Christian Bookstore called Word. I was comparing the prices and found that Word carries it much cheaper than the other retailers here. E-Bay looks as though it may be cheaper again so you can see what you think.
The full title of the book is 'On Becoming Baby Wise' and it is refered to as the 'Classic Reference Guide Utilised by over 1, 000, 000 Parents Worldwide. The joint authors are Gary Ezzo & Robert Bucknam.
I know just what you mean with your Mum, the best thing Icould suggest Sue is that if you read it and like what you read, ask her to read it also. I'm sure she already knows what sort of struggles you are having so hopefully she would be willing. If she did you'd probably find her much more willing to support you just because she'd have a better understanding. My Mum is also terrible for not being able to stand a baby crying etc. but she's so proud now of the way things have turned around.
There is definitely a light at the end of your tunnel Sue. I really hope this helps. The great thing about it is it takes all the guessing and guilty feelings out of it and gives you a plan to work with.
The links are as follows:
If you copy this link into your browser, it will take you directly to the correct e-bay search page.
Once you're on the home page, just do an all product search for Baby Wise and it should bring them up for you.
Sorry bout another essay, like I said, I just get a little excited. tongue
Let me know how you go and if I can do anything else.
