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.
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)
I got this book during the desperation of the 4 month sleep regression... It's so well researched and helpful! I wish we would've listened to it before our baby came... Would've helped so much in the hard, first 6 weeks. Some other reviews say it's boring, but I find it fascinating. I'd rather listen to a sleep book based on science than on entertainment.
This guy is pretty proud of himself. Reads like an old-fashioned propaganda piece by a WASPy doctor who knows best. Book summary: morning nap, afternoon nap, and full night sleep. There are much better books out there that won't waste your time.
I have two children who sleep beautifully due to this program. It was a lifesaver when my first born was 2 mo old. I was exhausted and knew I needed a plan. I was nervous when my second child came along that I wouldn't have the same outcome with her because my son had done so well. She did better than he did because I was familiar with the program. Now, I am starting with my third, and am actually excited to get her on the program! Lifesaver for parent who like to sleep!
Use of reliable study citations.
The narrator was ok. Hard to do much with the material at hand.
I think the good doctor swallowed a copy of Dr. Spock, and tried to fancy it up. The coup de gras for me was when I looked up crib tents and found that they had been recalled as unsafe.
The narrator was very annoying, he would mimic a woman when he read a woman's quote. It was so monotone that I couldn't follow. I have listened to a lot of books getting ready for baby and this one I stopped and started a dozen times before I decided I should return it.
I don't have a recommendation, but this was not a good fit for him.
On another note, this book has come HIGHLY recommended and I may jut end up buying the book and reading it.
