This book is a complete godsend for tired parents and children alike! Its gentle and compassionate approach is based on a thorough understanding of the body's sleep needs and children's developmental phases. The flow charts and case studies set out really practical, easy to implement strategies which give sleep-deprived families hope at last. The Millpond approach is non-prescriptive and this book offers lots of choices for parents to match their own goals and parenting styles. I would heartily recommend it for anyone already experiencing problems with sleep or to set up good sleep habits proactively.
This baby and child sleep guide is the perfect combination of accessible science, Mandy's years of experience and a mother's warmth. I love the way things fall into place with Mandy's clear and thorough explanations.
