This book is a lifesaver for parents that have tried to soothe their crying babies at night, only to feel as if they're making it worse. This book is a lifesaver for parents looking to help gently reassure their babies without arousing them and getting them more upset. This book is a lifesaver for parents wanting to understand the natural sleep patterns of humans and how they can be disrupted or improved.
I urge people who think they know Ferber's techniques to actually read the book. It is a far cry (no pun intended) from what some would expect. It is one of the most loving, easy to understand books on infant and children sleep that's available, and I have read many. Ferber puts it in very easy-to-understand terms that respect both the parents and the child and their need for quality rest and how to achieve that in various ways, none of which include coldly allowing a baby to scream and turning a deaf ear. He even reminds parents many times throughout the book that they might be unrealistic about their expectations and what to actually expect at different ages.
Both of our children cried dramatically LESS when using Ferber because after just a few days of "sleep training", they were able to nap with more success and for a longer period of time, and their nighttime rest was uneventful and refreshing. They woke up happier than before and their moods throughout the day and evening were much calmer because they weren't over-tired. With our son it took a little longer and we had to modify the plan as we saw fit, but we saw wonderful results with both of our children and both have very different personalities and sleep needs.
If you're on the fence about this book, order it, and read it. Not only will it be a manual to get you through those crazy infant months, but it can be carried along and utilized much longer than you might expect.
This book and it's methodology won't be for everyone, but it should be respected and truly read before you decide it's not for your family.
And for those of you out there with your first baby, scared to death you'll never sleep again and wondering what in the world you need to do... take a breath. It gets better. We've all been right there with you, and we're holding your hand. Keep going & keep the coffee brewing.
