4.0 out of 5 stars the bits I used have been a real help, 13 Dec 2006
This review is from: Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child: A step-by-step programme for a good night's sleep (Paperback)
I have read the other reviews and can't really comment on whether it would have been helpful to me with an infant deciding how to sleep train, as I didn't come across this book until I had two pre-schoolers, and wanted to know about their sleep needs and why they woke early.

For me the useful parts were the information about bedtimes, spotting the signs of first stages of sleepiness, how we often put children down later than they need because we don't read their signs, and what effects an earlier bed time can have. Like another reviewer I also had ditched the nap for my youngest when I read it, and also felt a bit bad. We didn't consider reinstating it because it would have been too disruptive, but we did opt to make up some sleep at night.

So we did try the theory of bringing the bedtime forward, rather sceptically, and it worked for us, although it is logistically very difficult and still requires a lot of things to fit round their bedtime, but it has paid off in other ways.

I didn't find the format very user friendly in many ways, and I don't know if the ideas would work for everyone, it certainly isn't a book of tips, as another reviewer said. But I did find it the best overall source of information on children and sleep and has widened my understanding enormously. I'm very glad I came across it.
