we also have the baby book by sears which i also find extraordinary. i feel this book is more of a book i read cover to cover and will go back to, while the other book i use for reference when certain questions arise. both are wonderful and i highly highly recommend them especially if you are attachment parenting.
My one complaint, however, is that there really needs to be more practical information on making Co-sleeping work. I'd like to see a book with more information on the daily ins and outs of co-sleeping and especially dealing with special situations. We've been extremely happy with our sleep arrangement and with the way our daughter is turning out, but I would love to see something offering us more "hands on" support and advice for our Co-sleeping arrangement. [For example, what can we do to ease things when a sibling comes along?]
Birth Book, etc.) I practice co-sleeping and attachment
parenting. I bought this book because my 6 month old twins
were causing my family to be severely sleep deprived.
Unfortunately, if you are already familiar with the writing
of the Sears', you won't find anything particularly new
here. It isn't that I *disagree* wht the principles in the
book, just that I thought it should go further. The "same
old" advice in the other Sears' books wasn't working for
us -- our family was falling apart. I wanted an alternative
to Ferber (which I also bought). This book continued to
say what the Baby Book said: your kids will sleep well if
they sleep with you, nightime nursing is the simplest
way to keep your kid happy at night, etc. Maybe all this
works for singletons, but not twins. I'd love to find a
book that gives really *practical* advice that still supports
the Attachment Parenting philosophy I believe in!
(Here's an example of unhelpful advice: In response to a
question about "My kid is too squirmy and keeps me up",
Dr. Sears responds that this is a result of the kid having
started in a crib and later moving to co-sleeping, and
that if you give him time, he'll adjust. This was not
helpful to us, who co-slept from the start, and had
given the kids PLENTY of time, and they were still disrupting
PS: The good news is that eventually, without any helpful
advice from any books, we managed to survive the sleep
situation, and at 2 years old, we have a much more livable
sleep situation while still practicing AP!
