This book contains some useful information - for me it was especially beneficial to understand how the baby can become overtired and now I am trying to make sure my 6-week-old is getting plenty of sleep during the day. We haven't experienced colic/purple crying!
I took off a couple of stars as I really didn't like how the book is written. It presents average sleep/nap durations and frequencies and then offers routines based on these averages, not considering how wide the range of normal actually is and how each baby is different. If the baby isn't average, it's talked about as problematic. The author did point out that baby sleep is really only a problem if parents aren't coping well, but what's missing is more reassurance that broken sleep (and feeding to sleep!) is developmentally normal. Actually, sleeping through the night, i.e. for eight hours, isn't normal even for adults, but it's what fits around our work schedules.
I was also getting distracted with the many grammar and stylistic mistakes in the writing - the book could really use some editing!

Good read i recommend but...2017年7月19日に英国でレビュー済み
I enjoyed this book to sleep train my baby (currently on 3rd training day). It is a very good book, well described with many options BUT i would have liked to see more details on the actual sleep training. It is often mentioned "encourage to gp back to sleep if baby wakes too early" but no actuals advices on how to do that. Apart from that, i do recommend this book which covers very important topics linked to sleeping, such as eating. Also, i really likes the routines for feed and sleep based on baby's age. Overly, i would recommend this book.
We bought this after we had our lives transformed when we consulted with the author about our sons bottle aversion but that is another story... At 7 months our son never had the chance to self settle and we were expecting the worst, however, responsive settling proved effective and not as bad as we thought it would be making the transition (though if we let the little man get over tired things are rough!). The book lays out different methods, pros and cons and gives information on babies sleep in general.
Saved my life!2020年1月27日に英国でレビュー済み
This book has literally saved my life. My 5 month old baby had to be rocked for ages to only sleep in my arms for 30mins at a time. After doing some responsive settling for 5 days my baby now sleeps 12 hours at night plus 3 regular naps. The book gives you a better understanding about sleeping in general and if you are consistent the strategies cannot fail you.
