Praise

“an excellent attachment-parenting guide to regulating little ones’ sleep without making them ‘cry it out.’”
—Mothering Magazine
 
“Too often parenting books, especially those on infant sleep, give advice incongruent with child and parent’s needs. Helping Baby Sleep stands out with its positive approach to infant sleep. …The informal writing style makes even the scientific information easy to read.”
—Journal of Human Lactation, International Lactation Consultant Association (ILCA)
