I also went thru that first year feeling like a horrible mom when it came to sleep, something pretty darn basic I thought.
Obviously since I don't have the new kiddo in hand quite yet to try it out on I had to settle on just reading over the info, but let me tell you..... HALLELUJAH!
This book is great, and again, I'm not saying that because they sent me one, I have told companies thanks but no thanks before.
Also included is a soundtrack with is crucial to settling the little one. I haven't a clue how to describe some of the sounds to you short of what they use to label them! Environmental sounds (thing gurgling and swooshing), white noises, and some good old fashion classical music.
They use a combination of SMS, Security- from swaddeling or an object of comfort, M- movement, and S-the Sounds for Silence CD.
What I found the most beneficial part of the book was not just how the information was presented, its laid out very simply, very easy to read, quite nice since the days of laying around reading are long gone, but that there was not a condescending tone in the least.
I have bought other infant care, toddler care, sleep issue books and honestly, most of them made me feel even worse. This book really is a breath of fresh air. And I'm so excited to get to give one away to a lucky reader!
For those of you who are interested in the program, you can get it thru their website oKidokie or on Amazon. Really this is a baby book worth getting.
And really, even if you aren't in the baby stage any longer, don't have kids or damn you, your kids already sleep thru the night, but you know someone who is having a baby or just had a baby this would make a fantastic gift so you can still enter. I'm cool like that.
