Any additional comments?

Babies are people, they come with their own personalities and ways of being in the world... When I was exhausted with a newborn who didn't sleep, I spent my precious time reading this book which solved exactly zero of my problems. I figured it out on my own eventually when we found something that worked for both of us.

Narrator ruins the book.

This content in this book may be good but I could not make it past the narrator. I recommend sampling before purchasing. (insert snoring sound)
