5.0 out of 5 stars Good Nights Good Advice, 28 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Good Nights: The Happy Parents' Guide to the Family Bed (and a Peaceful Night's Sleep!) (Kindle Edition)
This book was recommended to me by a sleep consultant who knew that I was having issues with my son's continuing need to breastfeed through the night at 18 months, but who also knew that I didn't want to stop having him in bed with me. The book is a lovely, encouraging read and although slightly too optimistic in parts (having your children in your bed actually IMPROVES your sex life? Really??) it provides heart-felt support for those co-sleeping or thinking about it. What Dr Gordon does is to show you that you are right if you enjoy sleeping with your baby and that this will not make them needier or spoil them and that, fundamentally, it is your decision and if done safely, is a wonderful thing.
I had started to move my son into his cot when he first fell asleep in the evening, feeling that at 18 months, he "should" be becoming more independent as a sleeper, but after reading this book, I have totally abandoned this and now have him in my bed from the start and we are all sleeping much better. I have even given up on the idea of night weaning as I feel justified and encouraged by the book to make my own choices and not to feel that my son "should" or "needs to" move out just because it's not very British to sleep with your children.

If you are thinking of co-sleeping and you are looking for support to tell you that this is ok, this is the book.

Snuggle up!
