The bottom line is this: no everyone is going to co-sleep, and that's fine! But even parents who are strictly against it might find themselves accidentally falling asleep with their baby, and this book teaches us how to make even those little accidental co-sleeps as safe as possible. We buy cabinet locks, door latches, and wall mounts for our furniture: this is basically like the only resource that tells you how to do this same kind of safety check for your sleep surfaces and beds, with a little boost of wisdom and story telling to keep it interesting!
What I couldn't swallow is the fact that I was doing all of the above things, and still waking up totally exhausted. Co-bedding safely, waking up to feed every 1-2 hours, laying next to my daughter while she grunted, groaned, thrashed, and flailed her arms about against me. I would wake up at 5 am feel like I wanted to sob. It just wasn't working, as much as I wanted it to. And I was about to go back to work, which I had no choice but to return to in order to keep my job. Naps were chaotic and she was so difficult to get to sleep unless I had her in a carrier, walking constantly, in the Arizona afternoon sun. Not very realistic.
What I really was looking for was a "somewhere in between" that I ultimately had to come to on my own. My baby is 3 months old and we do a combination, different on any given night: we do swaddle her (it does calm her down), lay her in her crib, slightly awake, with a pacifier, and we camp out by the crib until she falls asleep. She seems content and calm, and is used to this routine. After her first awakening, sometimes I feed her and put her back in the crib and sometimes I stumble into our bed together. Sometimes I take her back, and sometimes I don't. She is growing well and seems happy, secure, and rarely cries, even at night.
I'm sure the authors of this book would tell me that I'm doing all sorts of things wrong--the pacifier, starting in the crib, the swaddling, etc. but we are all getting more sleep now and I am able to mostly function at work the next day.
Cosleeping safely should be discussed more openly, and I think that if it had worked for us then I would still be doing it. But unfortunately, this book does not address any other options besides that, and is somewhat judgmental about those of us who choose a different route. Read with a grain of salt. It is well written but does not address parents who co-sleep and are STILL getting no sleep!
