I wish this product would have worked for us. I stuck it in the shower at night and by morning it had fallen. I put it back up on the wall, shaved one leg, and it fell off as soon as I started shaving the next leg. I wasn't putting my weight on it. It wouldn't even stick up for a few hours with nobody touching it. I cleaned the tile, used rubbing alcohol, and tried getting the suction cup wet before applying it to the wall. I believe it is because of the type of tile in our shower - travertine. This is a textured tile. If your shower is the average tile or fiberglass, or even glass, this product will probably work well, according to the other reviewers. If you have any texture to the wall/tile, you will have problems. Again, I wish this would have worked. Now I'll have to get a foot rest that will glue or be drilled into the tiled wall....Read more
I bought this car seat after reading about it in Parents Magazine. I should have gone with my hunch - that it is too new (I could barely find it) and no one had reviewed it yet. The base is huge, but without it the carseat is lopsided. My 29 month old daughter is tall (37") with a long torso and skinny. I struggle with this every day now. At first she fit it perfectly. Now that she has grown a little, I can barely lock the bottom buckle. It seems to not give enough depth, that is, there is not enough room from the back of the seat to the buckle. This is, of course, on the last of the adjustments. She only weighs 28 lbs, so the booster is a long way away. We will have to buy another car seat since we have had the seat for over 3 months (like I said, it fit when we got it). Beware! If you have a tall child, you may want to check out another one better suited for tall children....Read more
I, also, don't understand the fuss about this book. I have two children, one 2 years old and the other 3 1/2 months, sleeping through the night. My friends are STILL dealing with their toddlers waking up at night. I highly recommend this book. Yes, there is a bit of crying. Yes, it is hard to hear your child cry for 5-10 minutes (seems like an eternity). Remember that it is the short run. They will never remember, and unless you are completely neglecting your child for the other 1400 minutes of the day, their needs will be met. I can assure you that Gary Ezzo does not state that you must never hold your child or give him/her love. Quite the opposite, actually. The only time he suggest not holding your baby is when it is sleep time. Babies need their space, too. Nap time may be the only time they get to be alone without too much visual stimulation.
As for the reviewers who claim to have tried the method and it failed? I would guess that they didn't try it for more than one week. It takes 6-8 weeks for a baby to have the ability to sleep 8 hours straight. For those babies who wait until they are 13-14 weeks, they usually start sleeping for 9-10 hours when they begin to sleep through the night.
The idea is simple, as another reviewer stated. I, myself, prefer to know exactly when I can make that trip to the grocery store, rather than feeding on demand. I would also prefer to have a child who is able to put himself to sleep later on in life rather than a midnight guest week after week.
