A bible for anyone with a baby,
By A Customer
This review is from: Contented Little Baby Book (Paperback)
My daughter was 4 weeks old when the mother of an extremely contented baby gave me this book. At first glance of the routines I thought that there was no way that I could stick to them. However, after yet another night of rocking my colicky baby for hours before she fell asleep due to exhaustion, I decided to give it a go. It took another week before she started sleeping through from 10.30 until 7 and the colic disappeared.
I would like to add that the book can't be followed to the exact word e.g. my daughter is now 13 weeks and still needs over 4 hours sleep during the day as apposed to 3 and 1/4 hours as suggested by Gina Ford and still sleeps from 7 'til 7.
Despite being a first time mum I feel so confident because when the baby does cry I know what she's crying for and can quickly settle her down.
This book should be used as a guide when getting your baby into a routine as all babies are not the same. However, if you also follow your instincts you will soon have a baby who goes to bed at night because she wants to and wakes up with a beautiful smile because she knows that there's no need to cry, it's 7 o'clock and you'll be in to get her any minute!
