Follow the spirit not the letter of the law!!,

This review is from: The New Contented Little Baby Book (Paperback)
We didn't think that we would have peaceful evenings from 7pm to 7am until we read this book. Yes some of its tone sounds like something from the 1920's but the ideas are sound - that a baby of one or two months old needs to sleep every two hours, that a room should be dark to sleep in, that the baby shouldn't associate being rocked or driven to sleep and should get used to settling itself. All these have a sound basis in basic psychology. Our son is now 10 months old and slept through the night from about three months. We used the principles in the book but adapted some of the routines and we're glad we did!
