Whilst I don't practice all of the methods discussed in this book I think it's a natural, calm, gentle approach to newborn care and sleep. I also read Gina Ford's "The New Contented Little Baby Book" which I refer to as an 'extreme right wing' approach to newborn care. This on the other hand leans more to the left - a more natural and gentle approach that reminds the reader that every baby is different and a one size fits all 'routine' is not going to be the solution for every baby and babies wi ...more

Extremely highly recommended to all parents. If I could give 10 stars, I would.

The quickest parenting book I have ever read, not because it is light in content but because I was so hungry to read all of it and apply it to my world. At the time, I was struggling hard with my first child's sleep. I was at odds with the standard infant sleep advice that tells me I have to let my baby cry at some point, that I should never cosleep, never feed to sleep, and never feed on demand. Even the most gentle
I was perhaps looking for some more concrete solutions, but instead Pinky gave me permission to go with my instincts. She re-affirmed there is no perfect solution. Every baby and every situation is different. An encouragement that we are on the right track.

The first night baby and I were home from hospital, just 3 weeks ago, she wouldn't let me put her down so I held her the entire night. I felt like a failure - what bad habits was I forming? Was it dangerous to hold her when I might fall asleep myself? What about SIDS? That's when I remembered this book that a friend had gifted to me while pregnant and it was just the chill the hell out message I needed. It somehow gave me permission to enjoy the small moments like when my baby sleeps on me. It s ...more
Wonderful, I'm not doing anything wrong, my baby is normal and doesn't sleep much.

Few babies sleep all night. It's a fact! If you read this book, you'll read the stats on babies that sleep through the night, and you will be surprised. The lie that babies are supposed to sleep alone in their cots 12-hours has been propagated everywhere. This book set me free from the misconceptions I'd been carrying around. I wish that I'd read it during the pregnancy, it would have saved me so much heart ache.
This book advocates a gentle, intuitive approach to sleep and I felt very reassured about what I am doing. It also helped me to realise that what my baby does is perfectly normal and there's nothing wrong with the fact that he doesn't yet sleep through the night.

I can not recommend this book (or any of Pinky's) any higher, she brings years of personal experience of loving and care, and provides gentle parenting ideas which are just lovely, and practical.
Whilst there was No direct advice on how to get my baby to not get up at 4am it was still a very worthwhile read. If recommend it to all new parents.

Great validation for the parents who know instinctively there has to be a better way other than sleep training
The contents did not match the title, very vague advice and no "simple sleep solutions".
Bek Grubb
