I bought this book in Sept 2010 for my then ten week old son and have just come here to find the name for my sister in law who is struggling a little with her first newborn. Seeing the negative reviews i felt i had to say something. This book worked for me on day ten of implementing the plan and he has never looked back sleep wise, since. He'll be 3yo in June '13.
Yes the book does across a bit pro formula, but there is a whole section on breast feeding aswell. I think people are just a little bit shocked when the see a well written document
which says it's OK to formula feed. This was great for me as my milk didn't come in at all, we tried everything ( I mean it, you name it!) but it just didn't happen for me with my son. Alison makes you realize that this is OK. Her key philosophy is 'Happy Mum, Happy Baby.'
And thats how she also approaches sleeping, she gives you techniques to try if technique A doesn't work, she does offer alternatives.
It isn't strict routine based like some other books on the market. I know parents who swear by these books, but they are also the ones whos kids will only sleep at a certain time of day, in a certain environment and you never see them past 6.30pm in case it upsets the little ones routine.
The sensational baby sleep plan is a guide; we're all individuals and therefore will all parent differently. It's up to you how you wish to use this guide to aid a restful sleeping pattern for both of you as parents and your baby.
- it taught us how critically important it is to a baby's development that they're allowed to get good quantity and quality of sleep. It is all too easy as a new partent to put feeding, nappy changing, interaction and cuddles, and even our own selfish desire for contact with new babies before a baby's real and very important need to sleep
- that when a baby cries in the night, it is not always because they are hungry and must be fed, and it helped us to learn more quickly what our daughter actually needed and what different cries actually meant;
- within 9 weeks our baby daughter was sleeping through the night (yes THROUGH the night - 7pm to 7am) and 4 months on she hasn't once cried early in the night for food. In fact, by following Alison's guide, Anna (our daughter) never cries in the day because she is hungry as we know instinctively when she needs food and is showing signs of being hungry;
- our daughter is just a happy smiley little wonder, and I am convinced it is because Alison's guide has given us the confidence to let our baby get the sleep she needs, and not to rush and pick her up every time she meeps.
Now, onto the rebuffing...
In no way does Alison ever suggest that you ignore your baby's need to feed in the night in order to get it to sleep.Read more ›
- That routine is important for babies to feel content.
- That if you dive in and pick them up every time they cry rather than observing them first then it does them more harm than good - they don't learn to go back to sleep when they wake up between sleep cycles and don't learn to self-soothe.
- That life isn't perfect and sometimes the mother actually matters (I can say this as the husband) and needs rest rather than trying to be perfect in every way and having to completely submit to a parenting philosophy.
- That attachment parenting and co-sleeping is a nightmare for you and the baby (no-one gets good quality sleep).
I appreciated that it was a balanced book that did not blindly follow the status quo. I appreciated that it took a balanced view of breastfeeding for example. Most of the negative reviews for this book are from people who can't accept alternatives to breastfeeding even being discussed - this book says that 'breast is best' but goes on to accept that it is your choice and that breastfeeding doesn't work out for everyone.Read more ›
