This book was a life saver for my husband, our baby and me! We thought we were so lucky when she slept through the night from two to six months. But then teething started and it was all over! In our desparation, we considered buying the Ferber or Mindell books since we had not heard of any others, but we couldn't bring ourselves to let our little one "cry it out". Then I came across this wonderful book. Dr. Sears confirmed my instincts. He let us know that it is okay to pick up our baby when she cries and explained why she cries at night. He said that it is okay to nurse your baby to sleep, which I was already doing contrary to current popular recommendations. Dr. Sears highly recommends sleeping with your baby, which helped all three of us sleep better. He writes a wonderful section for fathers as well.

I followed your advice and co-slept, breastfed and carried my baby in her sling. And now she's almost a year old and still waking up every hour or two all night - every night. While I love the concepts contained here, this book made me feel guilty for wanting more sleep. I love my baby, but I need some sleep, too. I found a book that Dr. Sears recommends called The No Cry Sleep Solution that takes the same compassionate, caring attitude, but adds actual solutions to help my baby sleep better. She's already sleeping 6 straight hours and I feel like a new woman!

I think a lot of the negative reviews came from parents who are unwilling to change their daily schedules to include their new additions into their families. Making a family shouldn't be just about scheduling time to have sex, then setting aside time 9 months later to have a baby, and going back to work once you're feeling *up-to-it* So what if you're tired? I stay at home and i'm tired too! Why wouldn't you want to cosleep if you're away from your baby all day? If you're so sick of your child you don't want to be around it at all why'd you have children in the first place??
RE: cosleeping having negative results i'll give you one, my 2 yr old couldn't fall asleep without my husband or I laying down with him. We moved him into his own bed (w/o ANY problems, no crying to sleep, no fussing about being in his room) and he falls asleep now w/o issues, we found out he started having a hard time falling asleep while we were there, but if we weren't there he'd get up and play. Now that he has his own room it's ok if he's awake for a little while reading or such, he can't make a mess. Other than that my now almost 3 yr old does everything by himself, he plays well alone, and he plays well with other children. He doesn't cling, he doesn't have troubles sleeping by himself, and he's just as emotionally stable (if not more so) than his crib slept friends. What I taught him from birth was that his needs and feelings were just as important to me as mine.
I learned to schedule time for myself around his nap and bedtimes, and with help from my husband (or friend) I found joy in knowing my son was safe because I could always see him, hear him, and feel him. And my husband loved it because working outside the home it was the only true cuddle/solo time he got with our son.
We're using it again with our newborn and it's the ONLY thing that gets us both sleep at night. I'd recommend this to anyone.

The second night after my baby was born, the nurses in the hospital brought him to me sometime after midnight because "they couldn't make him stop crying." They lay him next to me and he nursed and promptly fell sound asleep. The first night I got home, baby did the same thing -- he would scream if left in his basinet -- but would snuggle down and sleep quietly if lying next to me. Lying next to him and nursing him to sleep thus seemed the natural thing to do -- and it helped all of us get as much sleep as possible -- but I felt guilty and uncertain aoubt it until I read Dr. Sears' advice. Thank you, Dr. Sears, for recommending this approach to "nighttime parenting," and letting me know that this is how mothers around the world care for their babies during the night. I'm pleased to report that after three months, I naturally began transitioning baby to his basinet for longer and longer stretches. Now, he sleeps there all night, and joins my husband and me in bed in the morning when we wake up and it's time to nurse.

Those that rate this book poorly, have issue with sleeping with thier children. Mostly due to the lack of knowledge they have for this type of parenting. Or some sad intolerance or selfishness-either trained or advised by others "It is astounding how thousands of generations of knowledge and expereince can be wiped out by one generation of ignorance." I heard this quote resently, and it definaelty applies to anti-cosleepers!
CO-sleeping is natural and comfortable, fuss free, and overall a wonderful expereince. My first son, we stopped too soon, guilted by public opinion, and guilt over this simple pleasure. I have since gotten reinforcement for my attachment parenting habits, and I embrace my co-sleeping, and know now from expereince that it is the way to go. My first son would have slept about anywhere, so little was lost, but my second son, welll, I am glad I embrace this method. We sleep soundly, and share an intamacy. I am better rested, because I rarely wake fully to care for my infant. We come togther naturally to breastfeed, and continue to co-exist naturally in sleep. There is a wonderfully fulfilling feeling of contentment, parenting this way. I watch others who "container" parent. They are generally fussier babies, and in the end, as the children get older, the conections are rarely the same. Sometimes the differnces are subtle. Most times not. The benefits are there. If you bother to be a parent, bother to do what is right and comfortable. Dr. Sears, you are a champ!
