I got this book when my baby was approx 2 months old, I got it after reading Gina Ford after finding that her methods were too rigid and lacking in compassion for my tastes. This one's 'clever', she seems so nice! It targets the fears of vulnerable parents. Telling new mums that they are creating demanding babies and that not having a strict routine would cause all sorts of problems can really knock your self esteem. Nice tactics. Like any good advertising this book makes you feel pretty inadequate. Quite quickly into reading the book I began to realise that we too were 'accidentally parenting' our baby. The debate about cry it out, put down pick up wasn't on my radar when I read this either, I had friends who had babies who slept very well and who were using these books so I thought they must 'work'. So in an effort not to be such a useless failure and to get back some 'control' I tried very hard to get our baby onto Hogg's EASY routine, but it was extremely distressing for my little-one and for me. We struggled on for a few more days but I just couldn't bear it anymore. My little-one not surprisingly wanted to be rocked and soothed to sleep. She wanted my arms, she wanted her mummy. This book doesn't really look at the needs of the baby (mummy!), just on the wants of parents (routine!). I went back to trusting my intuition *and* swimming against a strong tide of opposition. I have since done my research and know that Hogg and Ford's techniques do indeed work; but at a price. Glad I only tried for a few days, genuinely heartbroken for trying at all!
There is also conflicting information in here - the baby has a limited size tummy but 'tank' it up before bed so that it sleeps through. Then there is the example schedule - baby goes 12 hours overnight without a nappy change (can you imagine having your wee hanging around you for 12 hours? euch) and Mum gets to have her evening meal but there is no time given to prepare it - or to have lunch or breakfast meals!
There are a few useful tips and advice (eg wind, reflux, colic) but I am glad I borrowed this from the library and didn't pay for it.
