Not a cure-all, but some good ideas
on 2 April 2015
I've been following the advice from this book from the time my baby was three weeks old (now seven weeks). This consistently works to soothe my baby and make him fall asleep. However, it hasn't helped keep him asleep, which was our biggest problem (I'm not expecting a full night - but every 30 minutes is too much!).
I like the emphasis on safe sleep, and I think that it's so nice that he encourages you to hold your baby and nurse them to sleep without feeling guilty about creating bad sleep associations.
Although it hasn't totally worked for us, there is some really good advice in here and reading this book made me feel better when we were struggling. It's the best of the several sleep books I've read.
I also bought his white noise CD - I'm not sure if it helps my baby sleep, but I really enjoy not hearing our neighbour's TV! I'll keep using it even when we move the little one into his own room.
