I like the fact that this book talks to real mothers about real sleep problems and gives real, practical solutions. Ann Douglas writes like your older sister or best friend would talk to you, gently and with humour.
Sleep Solutions is well researched and covers all the popular methods for sleep teaching. It does not advocate one method over another and encourages you to find what works for your family. The resources at the back of the book are also excellent.
