This book saved our sanity!,
This review is from: The Complete Sleep Guide For Contented Babies and Toddlers (Paperback)
When my son was 6 months old, he was still waking up 3-4 times a night. Every time I put him back to bed, I couldn't get back to sleep myself, knowing that he was going to wake up again anyway...I couldn't think straight, I was so knackered. My health visitor couldn't help, my GP told me it was normal and I was beginning to feel really low.
One day a lady in the park recommended reading this book. I thought, why not, I have nothing to lose. Well, it was an eye-opening experience! After reading it - it made loads of sense - I went out and bought the Contented Little Baby Book too (I was warned off that book by loads of people, so I never touched it before 2 months ago!). That weekend I started putting him on the routines and used the advice from the sleep book and guess what? After a few nights, HE STARTED SLEEPING THROUGH THE NIGHT! I could hardly believe it the first night, but then it just continued. I feel so stupid for listening to all the negative comments about Gina Ford books, instead of reading them myself and making my own mind up. My darling baby boy is 10 months old now and he is an outrageously happy kid! We are seriously considering having some more children now...
If you are a new mum, struggling to cope with lack of sleep or simply someone who wants to understand their baby more, then I hugely recommend you to buy this no-nonsense sensible book. It is simply fantastic!

I am in the same position as you were only my baby is 8 months old. I am considering buying this book now out of desperation, as I too had previously ignored it due to comments I had heard from other Mums. One concern I have is, does Gina ford recommend leaving a baby to cry- that is my one worry.

No she does not recommend this, read the book and you will learn about her methods.

The write up for this book isn't very helpful. I'm just wondering if it has tips on how to get a child sleeping when going from a cot to a bed? Thank you in advance
