Far too restrictive!, 8 Aug. 2006
Luckily enough, this book was not available when my first child was born, just being a new parent was daunting enough without trying to follow GF's restrictive routine to the letter. By the time child no 2 came along, I was confident enough to be able to only broadly follow the routines in the book. Nowhere does she mention how you are supposed to manage to fit your life and other children in around her routines! The baby's routine is paramount and to hell with the fact that your older children need to go to school when the baby is supposed to be napping or that your dentist appt clashes with the regimented feeding time. I just don't see how this routine can be made to work and think you could very easily make yourself very upset, anxious and even ill trying to do so.
