Pros: helpful information, empowering, educating
Cons: puts down other choices
I found this book used. It is very helpful. I never intended to co sleep, but found that it worked best for me, and I was glad for the information this book provided. However, as my toddler got older, and I needed my own sleep back, I changed my method. It was a tough 2-day transition, but then it was over and we all sleep excellently now. I attribute our good sleep to BOTH methods: learning to sleep at a young age, learning to sleep on her own at an older age. My one criticism for this book is that it puts down other methods so strongly that if you find you need to change you may feel guilty about it because of the book. You have to do what works best for your family, and mothers don't need any more guilt.
