Advance praise for Sweet Sleep
 
“Chock-full of advice and information . . . The editors smartly break the information into digestible bits organized by topics and age ranges. And for any parent desperate for an uninterrupted few hours of sleep, the advice is worth the read. Sweet Sleep includes extensive information on creating a safe sleep space, helping children learn to sleep on their own and defusing criticism of your family’s choices. . . . This book is nothing but supportive of whatever your choices are about nursing and sleeping.”BookPage

“An essential guide for parents . . . detailed, practical advice on bed sharing and breast-feeding, with basic guidelines for safe bed sharing outlined in seven steps.”Publishers Weekly

This is a good resource for parents who are reluctant to follow all the rules that so many "sleep experts" are yelling at us these days. The conflicting and strict advice that kept getting thrown my way started to get to me, so I checked this book out. It was a good antidote to all the "musts"... i.e. "you must get your kid to fall asleep on their own!", "You child must learn to self-soothe!" "Your child must not sleep in your arms or be breastfed to sleep, or be allowed any sleep props!".

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.

This is a wonderful book about bedsharing, period. If you meet the criteria for bedsharing then I highly recommend it. For me though, it was extremely disappointing and made me feel like a terrible mother, because I take medication and am not a candidate for safe bedsharing. I was hoping for some support and an antidote to the barrage of terrible "cry it out" advice out there, but sadly most of the book does not apply to me.

I bought this book after it was recommended in "Today's Parent". It stresses bed-sharing and breastfeeding throughout, so if you are uninterested in either this book is not for you.
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 was leary as a new mom to start co-sleeping or bed sharing with my newborn baby but the benefits of bed sharing made me look further into it than what "officials" were saying. I'm very happy I read this book. It's very well researched and they lay out the safe sleep guidelines very clearly and simply. I feel much more confident about my decision to share my bed with my baby. I'm getting sleep and my son is getting well-deserved mommy time. I feel that it has made breastfeeding even simpler.

I started to cry during the introduction of this book. Finally, a book that was talking to me as a parent, that said what I needed to know as a breastfeeding mom, and gave me a real view of what breastfeeding looks like and sleep near and close to our babies.

I will be sharing this as the best book on the topic. Finally a real book based on biology!!
