Should be given by the NHS to all new parents!,
This review is from: Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child: A step-by-step programme for a good night's sleep (Paperback)
This book has been utterly invaluable to me as a new mum as it goes into detail about your babies sleep rhythms and what to expect month by month. Unlike some of the other parenting books out there he uses real scientific research. For example, he states there is no benefit to the 'dream feed' as advocated by Gina Ford ( and countless other 'experts'). As soon as we stopped waking our 3 month old son for this feed within 2 nights he dropped his night feed at 3am and slept through to 7am - and this is with an early bedtime of 6.30pm!
The bad reviews of this book are negative about the cry it out solution. However, if you follow this book from the start and don't teach your child bad sleep habits then there's nothing to cry about anyway. Just a happy, contented baby and a happy mum.
