First Sentence
Sleep. A beautiful word, much on the minds of new parents because getting their infants to sleep is second only in importance to satisfying their needs for nourishment. Read the first page

this book was absolutely terrible! give my baby whiskey? NO Aug. 31 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
When I started reading this book, I intended to give it the benefit of the doubt, but when I got to the part where it said to put a few drops of whiskey in my baby's water bottle, I said, "FORGET IT!" I put the book down. I will never feed alcohol to my baby, nor should anyone. This book has some really erroneous thoughts to it. I realize the book is older, also, but it was scary to read that you should put your baby on his/her tummy to sleep. This book was full of bad information.

a rehash of the cry it out theme April 8 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Babies and children cry for a reason, and is their first formof communication. Ignoring their cries teaches them that they aren'timportant and no one is going to care for their needs. Many desperate parents grab books like this, follow it, and have their hearts broken- in order to sleep. Babies arent' programmed to sleep through the night, something that Dr Ferber, a detached segment of our society and many non creative authors seem to have forgotten. Read "Nighttime Parenting" by William and Martha Sears, and their book on SIDS for a good understanding of sleep in babies and children.
How to fill a book with nothing... Jan. 24 2011
By Earthnut - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Half the book isn't even about sleep and the part that is gives some basic advice for good sleep habits, and if you want help with sleep problems, her advice is to read the books Solve Your Child's Sleep Problems: New, Revised, and Expanded Edition, Secrets of the Baby Whisperer: How to Calm, Connect, and Communicate with Your Baby, or Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child. Save time and just get one of those instead.
Old outdated ideas Feb. 20 2006
By Reading - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book was written in 1991 and I think the ideas even predate that era. Many old ideas that no longer are recommended, some are even dangerous (whiskey as a sleep inducer, letting baby sleep on tummy.) If you want a cry-it-out sleep book go to Ferber, if you want a non-crying plan go to Pantley (No-Cry Sleep Solution)
