This also covers ages birth to teenager and I was surprised to see how much sleep older kids need and know that I will use this as a resource for a long time.
I especially remember the sentence after it talks about how more sleep causes more/better sleep and the phrase 'it's not logical, but it's biological' and keep that in mind whenever my daughter is cranky and I try to get her more sleep, and that usually works!
My oldest is now almost 6 years old and I have an almost 2 year old. I thought I was an expert at being a parent. Both my kids are VERY different and this book was extremely helpful for identifying what my youngest needed while still helping my oldest transition into starting school and adjusting to a sibling. I still use this!
I am not sure how I found this gem, but we were ever so glad we have it . If you are having trouble trying to figure out why your baby or infant isn't sleeping, how to get your him/her to sleep through the night--THIS BOOK IS IT. We followed his advise (which btw was on point every month) and we were all able to finally sleep.
This book is a must have because he shows you month by month how the baby's sleeping patterns change etc. I have recommended this books to dozens of new parents. Don't be afraid to try this methods, they truly work. My son started sleeping through the night at around 4-5 months thanks to this book. (Marc W) taught us to respect the baby's schedule and then he'll respect ours; when it comes to sleeping that is :). Guess what? We did and to this day at almost four years old he goes to sleep at the same time with a routine and he loves it.
There is light at the end of the tunnel, you are doing a great job parents :)
(Note: we had to get rid of the pacifier by month four because we figured out that when he dropped it- he'd wake up augh) Our son dropped that thing like 18 times a night and every time we had to get up to do put it back. He didn't sleep and neither did we.
