Thanks for the advice.

My current plan when the baby arrives is to have a general schedule, but be as flexible as possible in regards to her personality, baby cues and growth spurts, etc. I believe that it is my decision as a parent to be the one to decide on what philosophy fits my DH and my needs (and most importantly, our baby's). The best advice that I got from a girlfriend recently, was if something is not working for you, don't feel like a failure, just try something else. But, it is still my decision on what I would like to try first. I like to have a plan, but I am generally flexible in changing that plan if it is not working. I don't think it will be much different for me with parenting.
