A revolutionary program to ensure healthy happy sleep for a child both at night and during eually important daytime naps He o This book is really flawed I can't get away from that If you're looking for a book of hints on getting your child to sleep this isn't it the title is misleading Weissbluth is over the top about insisting kids get enough uality sleep although that's arguably valuable in our overscheduled lives and there are dire warnings for kids who don't Sometimes the book is contradictory and it is poorly organizedSo why my rare 5 star rating It is just full of good information about sleep development My fourth baby is an infant and remembering that now is when she will start staying up really late at night but at 6 weeks will be ready for an earlier bedtime is sanity saving Having an idea of when naps consolidate what's a reasonable bedtime and how to work through common challenges make my life easier If you're totally on board with Babywise or Dr Sears you will probably not love Weissbluth's advice but if you're middle of the road like me this has a ton of good information that is adaptable for different families without insisting on a moral path He is accepting of cry it out but if that's not your path then there is advice for the family bed What he is most insistent on is that children and their parents get the sleep they need If your method is not getting you baby good sleep he's pushing you to change it I would recommend parents not choose a day when they are desperate for sleep changes to read this Chapters have an action plan section but I find them confusing Read it to get a sense of how much and when your child needs sleep and be watching for those windows of change
