As always, Dr. Sears (aka attachment parenting “guru”) wrote a very informative & enjoyable book! Very different from the Ferber & Ezzo philosophies…Sears is more of a “gently to sleep” advocate. This book is a keeper! All parents face these issues of sleep with their children…here’s a book that gives you an alternative to the heart-wrenching “cry it out” method. Sears instead tells how to make bedtimes less stressful for all while keeping focused on the most import thing…the well-being of your child. I highly recommend this book to all, but especially to new parents (like me!) It’s so nice to know there are alternatives to the “Babywise” techniques, for those of us who feel we need a different way.
