A Gentle Sleep Solution
The reading of this book was clear and easy to understand, with a nice pace and tone of voice that didn’t lend itself to be patronizing.
In regards to the content this is a handy book for new parents or those looking for a gentle sleep approach. This book is very much written in response to the sleep training approach, particularly the controversial “Save Our Sleep”. I appreciated many of the concepts explored and the variety of topics covered from breastfeeding to sleeping arrangements to the impact of foods on your baby and your own self care as a mother. What is most helpful is a consistent approach which encourages you to view life from the perspective of a newborn baby which really helped me understand why my baby behaves the way they do and how to respond.
If you are offended by mentions of breastfeeding as best or cosleeping as a good option this might not be your kind of book.
My biggest dislike of this book is really that I had already read a number of articles by Pinky McKay available for free through her website and Facebook page and reheard a lot of the same information in the book, so in that way it wouldn’t quite be worth the purchase if you’re happy to hunt down the articles yourself.
I ended up feeling encouraged in this book and reaffirmed as a mother so I guess in that way it was successful.

No helpful advice in this book!
After having my first child who demand fed hourly and didn't sleep longer than 1.5hour stints until 5 months old, I sought advice in this book to help with my second baby.
This book gave no helpful advice to help mothers who have terrible sleepers and also suggests unsafe sleeping habitats like co-sleeping. The advice in this book is to simply love your child and enjoy them and who cares if they don't sleep - I already know to love my babies and I definitely enjoyed the cuddles with my first child who never slept, but it doesn't really help mothers at their wits end who haven't slept longer than 2 hours in a row for 5 months.
Oh and it was really annoying how she kept on saying controlled crying was bad - yes I know that - which is why I sought advice from books to help my child sleep - but simply saying "don't do controlled crying and let you child sleep in bed with you" isn't a solution. I agree that controlled crying shouldn't be used for babies (we didn't do it until I think our first child was 12 months old) but this book offers no practical solutions!
