I am a Newborn Care Specialist and this is one of those recommended for reading after our training. It is considered the standard book on sleep training and any sleep trainer worth hiring has read it.
I really like his candor and willingness to tell the truth about the importance of baby and child sleep and that it affects every area -- why are babies and children so irritable and fussy...well maybe they are not getting enough sleep. The idea that they can "make it up tomorrow night" is a false idea -- because tomorrow night will probably have another excuse for not getting them to bed or nap on time now.
It is so sad to go shopping at night and see young children (who are obviously dead tired) draped over a parent's arm sleeping...and I am wondering how much quality sleep is he really getting???!!! How is this affecting his health and well-being now and in the years to come???!!!
READ THIS BOOK -- It is the best!!!
Because friends spoke so highly of the sleep training strategies in this book I will probably try some of them when my baby is a little older, before I return to work.
