A well-written, sensible book that can be read in small chunks. Perfect for when you have a new baby. Ms Jackson is an advocate for attachment parenting and very pro-breastfeeding, bed-sharing and baby-wearing, all things I'm keen on. It's a reassuring read - Ms Jackson keeps reminding you that you know your baby best and therefore shouldn't allow 'baby experts' to undermine you. Unfortunately, I left one chapter feeling put down because my baby sleeps in his own cot in a nursery (at the age of 4 months). A lot of what Ms Jackson says is anecdotal (drawn from observations of babyhood in other cultures and times) but when you have a new baby sometimes you need to be reminded of common sense!
Overall, this is a quick, easy read but it's not going to add much if you've already read some attachment parenting books. As an introduction to this topic, it's a good buy. I've not been put off Ms Jackson and plan to buy her 'Three In a Bed' in future.
