Clear, easy to follow, sound advice.
I wish we were given this when our baby was born. Even more I wish every parent who was told to let their baby cry it out (I was, many times) read this and told those "advisers" how wrong they are.
Beautiful book that will change my family life.

What did you like best about The Gentle Sleep Book? What did you like least?
There is some good information in this book, especially on babies and newborns. Information we wish we had for our first daughter and had figured out by our second.
There really isn't much content for 2 -4 year old despite saying "and Pre-schoolers". Which was why I had purchased it, so pretty disappointed. Lot of repeating. The last third seems as much self praise (or at least replied letters on how good the advice was, which filled a lot of time and wasn't useful) as actual advice. Started fast forwarding towards this point.
There seems to be differences between US pediatric practices verses UK pediatric practices, so how do you know what's best? And honestly the one thing she drills on is "go with your instincts and not what people are telling you". I agree with this concept.
I thoroughly enjoyed The Gentle Sleep Book by Sarah Ockwell-Smith. There's so much great info in there. It's well presented. As a Mum to two young children, I prefer to parent along the lines of attachment parenting and so this book was perfect for me.
I found the narrator to be a little robotic, though, so it was slightly off-putting at first, but I got over it!

Good useful book with gentle and useful advise. Really enjoined listening to the reader's voice.
