It is very general, so don't buy this book if you want to know what to do and when to do it with your baby, its all about trusting your instinct and going with what feels right.
The secret is that there are no magic answers, there are suggestions in this book that may help but my baby cried a lot, even though we co-slept and he was 'worn'.
I don't agree with everything in it. We don't let our son cry it out but he usually cries a bit before he goes to sleep because he's tired. There's a big difference between that and leaving him to scream until he collapses to sleep. As with all books take from it what is useful to you.
If you are going to buy a baby book I'd urge you to buy this one and avoid The Baby Whisperer et al like the plague they are likely to make you feel a failure and make you and your baby cry even more.
When I was pregnant I was nervous about what to do and how. I bought a baby book by a different author, misled by the title into thinking it would teach me how to make my child happy. I remember my husband commenting on my contorted facial expressions when I read about bizarre rituals where the day was broken into 20 minute slots dictating how long I bath my baby, how much milk I should express and when, when I eat my breakfast, and specifically what I must eat.
Unsurprisingly it turned out the author of that book had never had children. It went in the bin, so no one else could read it.
Baby Calm is the delightful antidote (written by a mother of four) and I so wish it had been published 6 years earlier!
Every parent should read this book if they want sensible advise on how to deal with becoming a parent and the needs of a newborn, while maintaining their own calm and sanity,
If you're going to be a parent, you need this.
