What a great book. Every new parent should be givin this book at the hospital. Its so great to be told to go with your instinct instead of against it. I have recommend this book to all my friends and none have used the cry it out method after reading this book.
I liked this book and thought it was easy to read and helpful. When you have a young baby it's so hard to find the time to sit and read a book from cover to cover. This book was great cause I would flip to a page, find some tips and come back to it later.
I loved this book. The ideas and methods were gentle, loving and respectful to my baby's needs and feelings. It takes time to see results but the methods don't involve leaving my baby to cry by herself. I love the author's tone and attitude towards motherhood. Reading the book helped my baby become a better sleeper and me a more relaxed and happier Mummy.
After buying many self help books as a first time mum, this one has got to be the most practical, and enjoyable read I have purchased. It has helped me to think of new ways to help my little one sleep, without the crying(mum and baby). I would def recommend this book to anyone who has reached a dead end and needs a solution. A guilt free, practical, and flexible solution.
Very easy and quick to read with wonderful ideas to help baby and Mum sleep through the night. I'm not one for control crying ideas and this really encourages you to not let your baby cry and the ideas do actually work. We started to see results within a couple of nights and last night baby slept from 7.30pm to 5.15am, straight! That's a 1st in 14mnths. I only wish I'd purchased this book sooner.
