4.0 out of 5 stars Some good tips if desparate, 12 May 2009
This review is from: The Complete Sleep Guide For Contented Babies and Toddlers (Paperback)
I have read both this book and The Contented Toddler and think they are both well worth a read - especially of you have become as desparate as i was!

I have still yet to find advice on leaving a baby to cry for hours and neglect them. Her advice is give them 10 minutes or so to see if they settle themselves - advice which lots of people give ie. don't rush in at the first whimper!!!! Yes there are rountines to help you structure your day - ideas for times for meals and naps for different ages. Most people i know have the same-ish meal and sleep times so whats the problem?? Her routines are flexible and not set in stone and there are lots of case studies to show how she has helped various families and their different sleep associations.

My toddler is now sleeping through, having less early wakings and eating much better after taking her advice for a couple of week. We've waited 14 months for this :-) Perhaps a lot is common sense but when you are so sleep deprived it's good to take a step back and have a read to re-focus yourself.
