Dr. W's advice that young infants need to nap every 2-3 hours works so well that our daycare provider borrowed the book to deal with a child whose parents said he didn't need naps at eight months old. (This little boy demanded to be held all day and fussed even while being held.) Now the little boys naps along with our daughter. And our daycare provider has become the consultant to other daycare providers in the area. She's bought her own copy of the book and believes it works. So do we.
We are so thankful someone gave us this gift. Otherwise we would have done as so many couples do and just hauled our daughter around with us as we lived our actives lives, allowing her to catnap in the car or stroller when she had a chance.
Every few months we pull the book out to see what stage we are likely to face next and what Dr. W. recommends. He hasn't been wrong yet. Plus, since our baby sleeps so much, her immunities remain strong and she has only had two colds since beginning full-time daycare in September.
Now this is our gift of choice for our friends. It is our gift to their baby and to them. Well rested parents make for happy parents!
However, I did learn some interesting facts about sleep patterns in babies and children which helped me implement a better nap routine. Eventually my son did sleep through and learned to self soothe, but it was more down to my instincts than this book! Not sure I would recommend it, but I would lend it to friends and family for a different perspective on sleep training.
It is an excellent book to learn about the basics of sleep (adult & child), what sleeping patterns to expect according to the baby's age and how to help your child to sleep well.
