From the Back Cover
A babys cries distress everyone within hearing distance. When the crying wont stop, despite rocking, bouncing, feeding and burping, parents experience agony and frustration-and, sometimes, anger and depression. In Crying Baby, Sleepless Nights, Sandy Jones soothes overwrought parents and helps them identify the source of their babys suffering. Writing with empathy for parent and child alike, Jones answers questions such as: What does my babys cry mean? Is my baby suffering from colic? Allergies? Is there something wrong with my milk? How can I ever get some rest?
A well-researched, sensitive, and practical book. -William Sears, M.D., author of The Baby Book and Nighttime Parenting
If sleeping like a baby seems like an ironic jest, you need this book. Mixing equal parts of sympathy for the crying baby and the hapless parents, Jones has made an excellent book even better. -Adrienne B. Lieberman, author of Giving Birth and Easing Labor Pain
This is a wonderful book and should be required reading for all pregnant women before the baby is born. -Lendon H. Smith, M.D., author of Feed Your Kids Right
"This book should certainly comfort new mothers with fussy babies. -Publishers Weekly
