I read this book when my second child was born last fall. My first baby was a terrible sleeper, and I was determined not to go through that same nightly hell -- rocking, singing, walking, coddling for hours only for her to wake up when I finally placed her in the crib. So, with my son, I decided to be prepared. And Dr. Weissbluth's methods were amazing. Who knew that babies would actually like to go to sleep early? By watching my son's moods, I learned that he really needed more evening sleep, and two lengthy naps, one in mid-morning and another in early afternoon. Bedtime at 7:30 and he sleeps until 6:00 am! He's happy, energetic and bright. I'm truly convinced that if I had tried to go through the "crying to sleep" method again (my husband and I did attempt it with my first kid, but found it absolutely agonizing), we would have all had a miserable few months.
Now I know why the good doctor gets phone calls from all over the U.S. asking for advice. He is one of the leading pediatric sleep researchers in the country, and is frequently consulted by top parenting and child care magazines.
I'm so utterly devoted to this book, that I'm happy to announce Dr. Weissbluth will be updating the research in a new edition of HEALTHY SLEEP HABITS, HAPPY CHILD due out in 1999. Same life-changing concepts, but with additional testamonials from parents who've used this book so successfully in the past.
I am a Newborn Care Specialist and this is one of those recommended for reading after our training. It is considered the standard book on sleep training and any sleep trainer worth hiring has read it.
I really like his candor and willingness to tell the truth about the importance of baby and child sleep and that it affects every area -- why are babies and children so irritable and fussy...well maybe they are not getting enough sleep. The idea that they can "make it up tomorrow night" is a false idea -- because tomorrow night will probably have another excuse for not getting them to bed or nap on time now.
It is so sad to go shopping at night and see young children (who are obviously dead tired) draped over a parent's arm sleeping...and I am wondering how much quality sleep is he really getting???!!! How is this affecting his health and well-being now and in the years to come???!!!
READ THIS BOOK -- It is the best!!!
