Even though you can sum up what you have to do in a page, the rest of the book is just a really interesting read - the stuff about sleep theory and body clocks talks to my inner geek.
Well, I thought I would try it. Day 1 I managed to get my baby to nap around 4 hours during the day by putting him down in anticipation of the 90 min window. Day 1 night he slept for three 4 hours chunks which is good for him...but Day 2 I also managed good naps during the day and last night he slept from 7pm to 4am!!!! So in 2 days we have success! We also haven't had a fussy period in the evenings like we usually do.
Its just a relief to know that it wasn't teething (husband's theory), the need for solids (grandma's theory), that my breastmilk is crap (granny's theory); it was just that the poor mite was knackered!
Thank you Dr Moore!
My baby is very energetic, intense and alert and was being extremely grumpy and tired sometimes immediately after a nap. He would only nap for 5 mins at a time when I started the program.. it was really frustrating and totally all-consuming.
I have recently gone back to doing this program (which is simply putting your baby down for a nap the best way you know how 90 mins after they have been awake) and have re-confirmed that Yes! my baby does need to go to sleep this soon after being awake, and this will lengthen with age. His temperament has improved dramatically and he is now mostly a smiley happy intense baby!
It does involve totally dedicating your life around ensuring that your baby sleeps when he needs to (its amazing how quickly an hour and a half passes by) and Im finding I just cant go along to baby groups etc, but I have accepted this as often he would just cry when I got there anyway or be the star of the show at the baby class and become a total nightmare as soon as we got home and he realised he was knakkered!!
I would recommend this book to all parents; it is very interesting and science rather than opinion or "experience" based, there is no finger wagging going on and you dont feel like a failure whilst reading it (so many other books have made me feel terrible). It is quick to read, practical and to the point.
Last week my baby had a day where he was just lying in his cot happily at nap time and I realised he could go for longer and indeed he had extended his awake time to 3 hours... so I am seeing a light at the end of the tunnel.
When I read this book (it is very quick, nice and short and to the point, perfect for busy new mums who just want to spend their time looking at their baby)everything statred to make sense.
My baby now sleeps really well during the day and at nights. He is calm and contented because we respect his rhythm. He does not need to cry because his needs are met. I explained the 90 minutes principle to everybody who looks after him and they all enjoyed having him because he would not fuss. when he was 12 weeks-old we started putting him in his cot 15 minutes before his time at night, staying with him till he was asleep: we did this for 3 days and now, we do not even need to soothe him to sleep.
I have recommended the method to absolutely EVERYBODY i know. it is the best thing ever, it is very simple and it REALLY WORKS for EVERYBODY!You can not go wrong with it because it is so simple.
