Unfortunately, this was too far to the other extreme for me, but I do think it still has a lot to offer. If you are looking for a very concrete schedule with specific times and detailed instructions, then this is the perfect book for you.
At a time when I was still trying to learn about my baby, I found this to be extremely overwhelming to follow and after a few days After reading many books that focused on theory and lacked detailed directions, I thought this was exactly what I was looking for. At a time when I was still trying to learn about my baby, I found this to be extremely overwhelming to follow and after a few days of waking her for feedings, I learned that my baby objects to being woken up!
I also found that I spent more time stressing over what came next than enjoying time with my baby and I felt that she wasn't particularly supportive of breast feeding.
Please don't misunderstand me, she never frowns on it directly and there are entire sections dedicated to it, but since this style of parenting accounts for every detail, not knowing how much a baby has eaten doesn't quite fit with that model. Especially since a baby who wants to nurse longer than her time allots for throws off the rest of the schedule.
That last point has made a HUGE difference for me since knowing how much the baby has eaten takes the guess work out of middle of the night wakings i.
May 12, Merrita rated it it was amazing. I was beyond desperate, had not slept for longer than hrs in any 24hour period and had postnatal depression. The I was given advise from GP to give baby medication for colic. It was all to much. This book saved me and my relationship with my first born. My mother and mother in law loved this book. They cared for their own babies in a very similar way and it made sense to them. My second child was a completely different story. Dec 28, Ricki rated it really liked it.
I've read 7 books now on baby sleep, and here is what I have learned: Babies are different. Here are the more memorable books in order from easy to hard.
On the other end of the spectrum, 6 on this list assumes that your baby needs to be forced into to be a rigid, drill-sergeant schedule, to basically sleep-deprive them during the day so they will sleep 8 hours in I've read 7 books now on baby sleep, and here is what I have learned: On the other end of the spectrum, 6 on this list assumes that your baby needs to be forced into to be a rigid, drill-sergeant schedule, to basically sleep-deprive them during the day so they will sleep 8 hours in a row at night, for the sake of everyone's sanity.
Baby Sleep Book I have to put this one at 1 because it's obviously the first one on the spectrum.
Sears is famous for giving advice to co-sleep, demand feed, basically do whatever baby wants. But if that worked, I wouldn't need to read books to get our lives in order, so I didn't even bother reading this one. Secrets of the Baby Whisperer Best attitude, mostly good advice. I wish this had worked for us. Baby Wise How to set up a schedule and understand the shifting sleep needs of your growing baby.
Definitely read the book instead of just googling how to do it. Interesting to read the psychology of what to do and why. Contented Little Baby A rigid, probably somewhat arbitrary timetable. Great for twins, because if you don't keep a timetable they will not nap at the same times, and then your household is chaos. Jul 29, Deanne rated it liked it. The jury is still out for me on this book. I have a couple friends that swear by this book and their babies were sleeping from 7pm to 7am by nearly 12 weeks.
This was NOT the case for me. However, there were a couple tips that I found helpful.
Even though I was breastfeeding the author suggests introducing one bottle feed in the late evening that dad can do between weeks old. This definitely helped me get some much needed sleep early on. And now Archer can seamlessly go from a bottle to bre The jury is still out for me on this book.
And now Archer can seamlessly go from a bottle to breastfeeding without a problem. The other tip that helped me was to start the day at a specific time no matter what happens in the night. So when 7am hit, we were up and running and he would get his first feed even if it had been less than 3 hours since his previous one. That way we could keep our entire day on track and not have it adjusted according to how his night went.
Jan 09, Paul rated it it was ok Shelves: The book might be 50 pages shorter if the author cut out all of the sentences which contain the phrase, "if people followed my routines properly The routines, if they work, seem useful and my wife and I do plan on giving them a go, but even our doctor told us that we shouldn't stick to a strict feeding schedule.
I think there is some valuable information in this book for new parents, such as things you need to get before The book might be 50 pages shorter if the author cut out all of the sentences which contain the phrase, "if people followed my routines properly I think there is some valuable information in this book for new parents, such as things you need to get before your baby arrives, but you can also find this info for free anywhere on the internet.
The book can and needs to be shorter. Most of it just seems like filler.
Dec 27, May-Ling rated it did not like it Shelves: I'm excellent at logistics obsessed one might say and even i think this book this is far over the top. I picked up a few tips, but the idea of scheduling your child's life down to minute increments every day is so unreali i picked this up after seeing the author's methods referenced positively on a couple of baby message boards.
I picked up a few tips, but the idea of scheduling your child's life down to minute increments every day is so unrealistic its laughable. I found myself wondering when the parents can find time in her suggested schedule to shower, eat, go to the bathroom or do anything for themselves at all Dec 21, Vanessa rated it really liked it.
A friend gifted me this book as a baby shower gift and it was infinitely helpful to me. A lot of books said things like give the baby a dream feed but no one told me what a dream feed was or how to do it. Being an absolute novice, I loved this book as it walked me through turning the light on and at what time etc. As with anything, use it as a guide, not the Gospel. Oct 19, Shannon Scott rated it did not like it. This author preaches sleep training through controlled crying and self settling in babies.
Self settling is a skill an infant has to develop, it can't be taught. Learned helplessness can be taught through controlled crying. The Australian Association for Infant Mental Health have a position statement search on google outlining their concerns with controlled crying. Don't bother with this book - either your baby will sleep or they won't. May 26, Tricia rated it liked it.
Didn't think that a baby book would be my most controversial book choice of Don't really get the nazi nanny accusations. Personally found it a useful read. Although glad to be finished and back on to the world of fiction. Aug 25, Phil added it. This is a great book. Very strict in its approach which can be manipulated to suit the parent.
Used it for 2 out of 3 children and they have been very content. Mar 04, Victoria Rogowski rated it really liked it. This book receives a lot of unfair criticism. Like any non-fiction book, its contents should be taken with a grain of salt and supplemented with another book. Rather, the schedules should be taken as guidelines about how each day can be structured, including showing how self-care for moms is still possible to fit in to each day.
The author sets out to explain how just This book receives a lot of unfair criticism. The author sets out to explain how just minutes difference can affect an entire day, but never implies that you should be setting a timer to stick to it literally. Yes, some of the information is now outdated, which again is the case with any non-fiction book. I never got the impression that following these routines was somehow unloving, especially since the author explains how overhandling and overstimulating your baby is not in its best interest.
My only major criticism of this book was that it was redundant and could have benefited from a better editor. I often felt that I was reading new, heavy information only to realize sections contained the same times or tips previously mentioned. This made the book seem a lot more intense than I think it was. The book discusses both breast and bottle fed babies the whole way through until the breakdown for the routine and all it gives is how many minutes to be on the breast!
The book is a guide, a recommendation, advice and underlines that each baby is different. Of course you do not take every word written in there literally, which some readers seem to.
If it says 'drink large glass of water at 10am' it does not mean the routine falls apart if you do not drink that very second - that is there to remind you to drink water throughout the day, whenever - that s how i took it and as someone who regularly forgets to drink water I was glad that it was there. My baby started sleeping through the night from around 3months, it all happened gradually, gently and without drama.
All my other friends who are of the 'follow the lead of the baby' philosophy still wake up to 5 times a night to console their awake and screaming babies and toddlers and for most making the transition after a year of bad sleeping habits is very difficult and involves a lot of crying. So i advise everyone to start early and help their baby and themselves. Publisher Description.
