It very heavily encourages bed sharing, so if that's not something you're interested in, this book may get tiresome. It's also a La Leche League book, so breastfeeding is also very prominent. If you're looking for some encouragement as you take things easy with your child, this would be good for you. If you're looking for tips on how to sleep train or schedule sleep or anything more structured like that, look for something else.
After having my second child, I have heard way too much information on how to sleep train your children, getting them to sleep through the night, etc. I gave bed shared with both of my babies no problem, but I have always had sleep issues with my oldest. Community health nurses and doctors stress (and I mean STRESS) that babies should not sleep with their mothers, don't fall asleep while nursing, etc. There are so many rules, and as an exhausted mom, I was tired of it. I personally love sleeping with my kids, and I was tired of being lectured, especially when none of the lectures were working.
So finally, I got this book. It was the biggest, most heartfelt sense of relief to actually read that sleeping with your baby was not only okay, but really normal and healthy. I have felt a huge weight lift off my shoulders after reading this book. So if you are tired of being told what to do-and not do- when it comes to how you should and shouldn't nurse or sleep with your baby, like I was, this book is for you.
I will be sharing this as the best book on the topic. Finally a real book based on biology!!
