Fantastic read!

This book is a must for new parents. In a world where everyone is trying to sell a sleep program, and babies are often left alone and crying for comfort, this book is such a breath of fresh air. It made me more confident in trusting my instincts and has made all of the difference in our home!

One of the best baby sleep books I've read

... and I've read quite a few.

This is a wonderful book. Well structured and covering all the significant topics concerning sleep for babies, this book should be the first book to read for any new parent.

Being so recently published, it speaks about the science and discoveries of our days.

Listening to the audio version has helped me countless times getting calm incredibly quickly in times of despair when the baby was crying, tired in my arms, not willing to sleep. In a really short time, my newly gained peace would be transferred to him too, and helped him get asleep so easy.

Thank you for your efforts of putting together all this valuable information and being a real friend to sleep deprived mothers.

Incredibly Helpful

As a nursing (new) mom I have often sought advice from La Leche League’s website because they are possibly one of, if not the most well-known and respected resource for breastfeeding online. I was pleased to find that not only had LLLI written a book specific to the connection between nursing and breastfeeding, but that it was available here on Audible (perfect for busy moms like me). It is especially helpful for anyone who likes to have research to back up the claims surrounding bed-sharing and it offers practical advice on how to bed-share safely. It has definitely changed my perspective on the topic. Great listen!

A must-read for new or tired parents

A very accessible overview of bedsharing and research. It has an angle, but provides useful counter-arguments to those promoting sleep training practices (including healthcare professionals).
