This book has been a true blessing. We ordered it when our baby girl was 3 weeks old, and she is now 3 months old. The tips and strategies are so helpful. Both my husband and I love the way this book is written to appeal to both mom and dad. We were clueless on how to get our new baby to sleep, and stay asleep. After reading this book, and implementing the ideas that Sears puts forward, our baby girl finally naps during the day, and she sleeps 9-10 hours at night. This book is not a miracle worker, it HAS been hard work and perseverance from our side. But just knowing WHAT to do, thanks to Sears, has saved us many tears and sleepless nights. I highly recommend this book to any new parent who doesn't believe in the "cry it out" approach.
