5.0 out of 5 stars Every new parent should buy this!, 1 Feb. 2007
This review is from: Solve Your Child's Sleep Problems (Paperback)
My wife and I are good parents. We think that because mostly we have a contented daughter who is good natured and sleeps really well... mostly.

Imagine the shock and bewilderment when after 21 months of blissful sleep our daughter had a cold, the MMR jab and frightening stormy weather one night all happening at once and her sleep was sent off balance. The next 6 weeks got progressively worse - need a light on, wake up at 2, 4 and then 6. Cry for up to 2 hours when put down. Arghhhh! (and some people would be happy if it was only _that_ bad).

Really our sleep episode wasn't that bad but in comparison to the bliss we had before it was a nightmare. We ended up being fractious and tired and frustrated and not knowing quite how long this 'phase she is going through' would last.

I read around and put my faith in this book. I like to have someone giving me some structure when I think I have tried everything else. Richard Ferber is a genius. Like all good books, when you read this one you think "I already know that" but it helps you to work out what it is that you could do differently.

So 2 evenings reading the important bits (the book even tells you which bits you NEED to read and which you can skip) and 4 days after putting this into practice we are back to a blissful routine. Bed at 7, wake up at 7!

Thank you Richard Ferber.
