MOBI ↠ Healthy Sleep Habits Happy Child ¸ Marc Weissbluth

The perennial favorite for parents who want to get their kids to sleep with ease now in a completely revised and expanded fourth edition In this fully updated fourth edition Dr Marc Weissbluth one of the country's leading pediatricians overhauls his groundbreaking approach to solving and preventing your children's sleep problems from infancy through adolescence In Healthy Sleep Habits Happy Child he explains with authority and reassurance his step by step regime for instituting beneficial habits within the framework of your child's natural sleep cy This book was recommended to me by a good friend who had literally poured over every book she could find on the topic of sleep She sees it as the sleep bible Unfortunately I had a hard time with the book for several reasons 1 It's very dense with a small typeface note easy to read when you're exhausted and looking for a solution 2 It's totally unclear where in the book there's actual practical information on how to help your child sleep3 The author is strongly opinionated and has kind of a damning tone As a new parent it's hard to filter out other people's judgemental attitudes especially experts so I prefer information that's delivered in a softer tone At one point Weissbluth actually states something to the effect that children who get poor sleep are likely to be bratty and those brats are likely to become fat I'm going to hunt down the actual uote but that's the jist of it I get that he's emphatic and I agree that healthy sleep habits are incredibly important but there's a difference between beating a drum and beating a person over the head with it All the same the book is chock full of research and data that can help you develop a informed approach toward your child's sleep and Weissbluth does present some great concepts A friend of mine actually figured out what the program or plan was she winnowed it out from the rest of the book somehow She swears by it which I probably would too had I been able to get that far When I get the pared down version from her I'll post the important page numbers here

Marc Weissbluth ¸ Healthy Sleep Habits Happy Child BOOK

Healthy Sleep Habits Happy ChildCles Rewritten and reorganized to deliver information even efficiently this valuable sourcebook contains the latest research on the best course of action for sleep problems prevention and treatment common mistakes parents make trying to get their children to sleep different sleep needs for different temperaments stopping the crybaby syndrome nightmares bedwetting and ways to get your baby to fall asleep according to her internal clock naturally handling nap resistant kids and when to start sleep training why both night sleep and day sleep are impor This book is really flawed I can't get away from that If you're looking for a book of hints on getting your child to sleep this isn't it the title is misleading Weissbluth is over the top about insisting kids get enough uality sleep although that's arguably valuable in our overscheduled lives and there are dire warnings for kids who don't Sometimes the book is contradictory and it is poorly organizedSo why my rare 5 star rating? It is just full of good information about sleep development My fourth baby is an infant and remembering that now is when she will start staying up really late at night but at 6 weeks will be ready for an earlier bedtime is sanity saving Having an idea of when naps consolidate what's a reasonable bedtime and how to work through common challenges make my life easier If you're totally on board with Babywise or Dr Sears you will probably not love Weissbluth's advice but if you're middle of the road like me this has a ton of good information that is adaptable for different families without insisting on a moral path He is accepting of cry it out but if that's not your path then there is advice for the family bed What he is most insistent on is that children and their parents get the sleep they need If your method is not getting you baby good sleep he's pushing you to change it I would recommend parents not choose a day when they are desperate for sleep changes to read this Chapters have an action plan section but I find them confusing Read it to get a sense of how much and when your child needs sleep and be watching for those windows of change
