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!
