Even though you can sum up what you have to do in a page, the rest of the book is just a really interesting read - the stuff about sleep theory and body clocks talks to my inner geek.
Well, I thought I would try it. Day 1 I managed to get my baby to nap around 4 hours during the day by putting him down in anticipation of the 90 min window. Day 1 night he slept for three 4 hours chunks which is good for him...but Day 2 I also managed good naps during the day and last night he slept from 7pm to 4am!!!! So in 2 days we have success! We also haven't had a fussy period in the evenings like we usually do.
Its just a relief to know that it wasn't teething (husband's theory), the need for solids (grandma's theory), that my breastmilk is crap (granny's theory); it was just that the poor mite was knackered!
Thank you Dr Moore!
Over time (she is now 4 months) her natural sleep rhythms are more defined and she is now napping every 2 hours of wake time.
I think it's good to use 2 hour rule of thumb with babies but to be honest - if they don't want to sleep, they won't!
The plan is common sense when you realise they need to nap every 90 minutes - you don't really need to buy this book unless you are interested in the scientific background.
Night times vary , we're down to two night feeds now instead of four and she happily sleeps in until 7am.
A natural way at helping your baby sleep.
