Dr Green has always been the common sense guide and makes you laugh when you most need to. But his ideas are neither dictatorial or silly. Mostly based on oodles of common sense and years of experience. Some passages are seen as a little old fashioned now to some...like advising you to stock up on tins and easy foods for once the baby is born on the assumption that your partner/husband is helpless around the house. Some readers sadly still do have this sort of partner but thankfully food delivery to the home is more advanced nowadays. These small details don't detract from his wisdom and sense of humour. His best advice is for the eternally crying baby and toddler. It seems harsh but it works and ultimately it is for the good of both child and parent that they sleep. Everyone I know who has used the method found it worked well and in only about 2-3 nights!
Enjoy, he made me laugh a lot when I needed perspective.

this is a great book which gives down-to-earth practical advice to new parents. It is often alternative in it's views and really refreshing. Would definately recommend!

Bought this for my daughter. Even though she googles everything she still finds this book to be her "bible". She refers to it all the time for tips and answers. Great reference point. Buy one.
