Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This comprehensive guide is a revised edition of a book that was originally published in 1983. Jones, author of Guide to Baby Products (Consumer Reports Bks., 1991. 3d ed.) offers advice on how to soothe a crying or colicky baby. She gives basic, down-to-earth advice as well as a wealth of information about colic, allergies, drug reactions, fussy babies, and so forth. Each chapter has useful charts with information on various problems, their descriptions, and possible solutions. Also included are tips and facts for new parents. A useful section offers 100 tips for parents with fussy babies. The last chapter discusses overcoming stress and depression. This is one of those books that every parent should have before a child is born. Highly recommended for public libraries.

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

Format: Paperback
This book was a god-send. I bought it after my baby was born, and wish I had gotten it before. I had a very difficult baby who had major dramas sleeping. This book offered lots of very helpful advice, and helped debunk some of the myths out there.
This book is a must read for any expectant parents.

It's too bad more parents don't know about this book. Where many parenting books seem light on details, _Crying Baby_ is packed with useful in-depth information. One of the most useful parts is the chart at the beginning of the book that describes different cries and what they might mean, and what you can do about it.

My wife has been devouring this book.

My advice: read this book BEFORE baby starts to cry

I searched everywhere to find help with my son and this book is where my search ended. Not even multiple doctors suggested food allergies in a breastfed baby. With the help of this book, I was able to discover an allergy to milk protein and adjust my diet to alleviate the problem. It also has wonderful advice on soothing.

Hang in there, the crying will stop! We had a colicky baby who cried for hours every night for six months. This book was a good book that offered hope for my sleepless wife.

The best solution--a baby swing! My parents gave us one and it worked.
