Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"For me she was an absolute godsend."  —Kate Winslet

Library Journal
Hungry, tired, and bored? There is a reason your baby cries, but deciphering it can be tricky. British child expert Ford (The Contented Little Baby Book) here delivers a brief (librarians will hate the 5½" × 5½" size) title on soothing methods for the most common causes of crying. As in her other books, Ford sticks to rigid schedules (the reason she is so often criticized), but those rigid schedules are often exactly what your pediatrician recommends (feed an infant every three hours). Then again, sometimes they aren't (limit daytime sleep to no more than five hours). Ultimately, parents who are struggling with a crying baby will be grateful for Ford's exacting routines and methods, as they leave little room for arguing over what to do. In the end, the baby will, in all likelihood, be just fine.—Julianne J. Smith, "Parenting Short Takes," BookSmack! 8/19/10
