If you're expecting a baby or already have one, do yourself a favor and get this book. It's all about helping your baby to sleep and nap well and reliably, and who doesn't want that? It had tons of sample schedules and lots of troubleshooting tips (e.g. Why is my baby waking up 30min into his nap? Why is my baby hungry early?). Some hospitals specifically advise against this book, but their concerns seem to be about an earlier edition. This is not about strict scheduling, but about encouraging your baby to be consistent with his/her eating and sleeping routines. As adults, we eat and sleep at approximately the same times each day, so why wouldn't we encourage our infants to do the same? Seriously, this book brings some sanity back to the newborn days.
