The Parent's Guide to Getting your Child to Sleep at Just the Right AgeBook - 2010
A newborn typically deprives parents of 400 to 750 hours of sleep in the first year of its life. Many mothers and fathers wrestle with the overwhelming number of sleep-training methods offered to them, from the 'cry-it-out' techniques to the gentler 'no-cry' approaches. But there are no scientific studies that prove one method is superior to any other. Lewis and Granic, however, have uncovered astonishing research and crucial information about sleep-training babies: the most critical factor is when you start the process. Timing is everything. "Bedtiming" walks you through the stages of your child's development up to the age of four, revealing the windows during which sleep-training is most effective -- and when it stands the least chance of success. Filled with practical advice on the top five sleep-training methods and instructions for dealing with sleep setbacks, "Bedtiming" is a simple, sensible and reassuring guide to help your child -- and yourself -- get to sleep.
