After hearing a number of people recommend this book, i finally bought it and have almost finished it. A lot of it sounds like it makes good sense to me & it's definitely supportive of AP values so I was wondering what other reader's thoughts were on the book...how it helped their kid's particular temperament and how making the changes effected their family life. My one uncertainty is that she doesn't really address nursing issues (beyond infancy) so I'm not sure if I should implement her strategies and then try to nightwean OR if I should just nightwean first. For me, i think part of the reason we sleep so irregularly is because of the nursing...so fixing that might make it easier to get on a schedule. Right now, because i don't have to get up at any particular time, I sleep as long as I possibly can...but that usually means nursing non-stop from 6am or earlier until I can't stand it anymore. So I wonder do I just need to bite the bullet and get out of bed at 6am and start our day... but then, I think my DD just doesn't wake up happy if she doesn't wake up nursing. I need to break the cycle because neither of us are getting enough sleep, I'm just not sure which strategy to start with. My toddler's temperament is intense, sensitive and irregular.
