Fantastic book for first or second time parents, 3 July 2006
I totally loved this book. As a second time parent, it gave me valuable, gentle guidance on setting sleep routines, feeding times and controlled crying. Rachel speaks a lot of common sense and promotes a more traditional, loving approach then other books. She favours plenty of walks for babies, sleeping outside wrapped up rather then in darkened nurseries and prayers at bedtime.
Her approach is gentler then other books, but she still recognises that babies thrive on routine, need to feel loved and that parents do not need to feel bullied and pressured into following ideas they may not be comfortable with.
Anyone who follows her approach will have a happy, thriving baby and relaxed confident parents.
