A must for a gentle parenting approach to better sleep.
on 29 July 2014
Does exactly what it says on the tin. Managed to get our four month old co-sleeping baby into her own cot and sleeping through on her own, only waking for feeding (were previously she would wake every 45 mins, or every sleep cycle, or only go to sleep with a fight). We no longer have early evening meltdowns and very rarely have an over tired, whiney baby which we had a lot of previously. Since about 4.5 months my little girl will now self-settle in her cot at bedtime most nights. I have recommended this book to anyone and everyone who will listen if they ever mention problems with their little ones sleeping, but don't want to try the CIO/CC methods of sleep training.
This book gives useful tips and advice on techniques you can try to support your little one to sleep better, as well as arming you with information to help you understand your little one's sleep needs. It's has completely transformed our daily routine and restored my sanity. I would say it's the handbook for gentle parenting/AP to help little ones to sleep, it's not harsh in any way nor is it 'sleep training'. Written by a co-sleeping, breastfeeding mother of four.
