Very Happy

As a new mother of Twins, I found this book extremely helpful. I strongly disagree with reviewers who say his tone is condescending or judgmental, as I personally found him very tolerant of all parenting choices while still providing the facts that disprove them. I also don't see how people say he doesn't give options other than crying it out as he has offered a range of other options, though not in as much detail. My problem with this book is actually not the content as much as the organization and redundancy. A lot of the information is repeated throughout the book that you can easily find yourself wondering if you are relistening to a part that you have already finished. Funnily enough, this repetition is not utilized when most needed in age-specific chapters. Moreover, and this is not the author's problem but rather audible's format, you can't tell where to find the information you need because there's no chapter titles or subtitles, and the book chapters are further divided into two chapters in audio form. Tip for people who are in a hurry, listen to chapters 4, 7, and your baby's age specific chapter.

It worked for my baby!

This is a comprehensive sleep book, I was reluctant to sleep train my baby, who at 6 months slept in my arms. I listened to the entire book, applied the techniques and now my baby sleeps 12 hours in his crib. We are still working on good naps.
