Another MUST READ from Dr. Bill and Martha Sears,
By A Customer
This review is from: Night-time Parenting (Plume) (Mass Market Paperback)
I don't know what I would have done without the great books from Dr. Bill and Martha Sears. I knew what I felt was the right way to parent by listening to my "mother's intuition", but I was also hearing a lot of conflicting advice. I was constantly being told not to nurse my 6-month old daughter to sleep, not to let her sleep in our bedroom, and not to feed her at night. After reading this book from Dr. Bill, I not only let my daughter sleep in my room, she is now in the bed with me. We both sleep so much better, since she can nurse without either of us waking up. It is a perfect scenario for today's busy lifestyle. Even as a stay-at-home mom, sometimes I don't get the private bonding time that I would like, so night time is our special time to cuddle together. She knows that her father and I are always there for her - not just when it is convenient for us. I have also started finding MANY people who share sleep with their children, and I feel much more confident about my mothering skills. I can't imagine my daughter being stuck in a room by herself alone, and Iam so thankful that I read this book from Dr. Sears. What a gift to bond with your child at night.
