Text ↠ Healthy Sleep Habits Happy Child Ó Marc Weissbluth

A revolutionary program to ensure healthy happy sleep for a child both at night and during eually important daytime naps He o I give this one two stars not because the ideas were bad The concepts are fairly sound and it is helping me get my 3 month on a napping schedule that will help him grow and be happy I've already seen significant improvement in his mood I give it two stars because the book repeats itself over and over and over It needs a good editorial scrub It's as if someone felt it should be a certain number of pages so they kept stretching the material It's very redundant and honestly could be boiled down to perhaps three chapters Chapter 1 Why children need sleep and the data that backs it upChapter 2 Suggested sleep schedules by age Chapter 3 How to deal with difficult babies and other sleep issues I will say however I do not follow the cry it out advice If he cries I respond That's just my style of parenting Instead we focus on1 Not letting him get overtired Babies can only handle about 15 to 2 hours before they get tired 2 Encouraging longer naps during the day This was a revelation that goes against common sense and has really helped him sleep better overall3 Getting him to bed at a regular time I feel like the book helped me understand the importance of structure The concepts are helping us develop good habits for the future It may not be for every parent but it's working for us so far Even if the organization of the book is horrible

Healthy Sleep Habits Happy ChildThe child care classic is now totally revised and updated as Dr Weissbluth a leading researcher on sleep and children promotes I really love this book – though I notice I almost always hear negative reviews and comments about him which is a huge shame People think of him as having a cry it out stance and of being anti attachment parenting but this couldn't be further from the truth What is great is that he doesn't have one philosophy or think there is one method of doing things He gives many different sleep strategies that include no crying some crying and cry it out and he tells you which strategy is likely to work for which type of kid He also has no issue with co sleeping – he thinks you have to find whatever sleeping situation works best for your family The best part is he provides data and scientific evidence on sleeping so you really understand the process of how it works and why it's important and how much sleep your child needs He's so open minded and tries to provide information for so many different situations like if a parent has many support resources or very few because he recognizes that each family and child are different – but this is exactly why he is so misunderstood and why the book is so hard to read Because he presents you with so many possible scenarios But believe me it's well worth it We ended up doing a mixture of things he suggested until we found what worked Some of the things he said we ignored but some we really took to heart In the end what comes through to me about this doctor is that he deeply cares about mothers and their babies and recognizes the many challenges that face them But instead of trying to gloss over those challenges or act like they wouldn't be there if only you had the RIGHT parenting philosophy he paints a realistic picture of them he acknowledges that some husbands aren't supportive or that some parents don't have outside family to rely on and he gives advice on what to do in light of those situations not how to fix the impossible
