Overview

Learn the secret to getting your baby to sleep through the night—so you can get the rest you need.

You’ve heard horror stories about babies who cry constantly, need to eat every two hours, and never learn to sleep through the night. And now, whenever you think about your soon-to-be-born bundle of joy, you can’t help wondering how you’re going to manage those two a.m. feedings and non-stop crying jags—and how you’re going to live your already-hectic life on little (or no) sleep.

Relax! If you follow the practical, real-life advice in The Contented Little Baby Book, your baby should be sleeping through the night at around six to ten weeks. You’ll learn why you shouldn’t follow the conventional “feed on demand” advice. You’ll understand why even older babies can benefit from sleeping and eating schedules. And soon you’ll have what every parent wants—a happy, healthy, contented little baby.

Drawing on twelve years of experience researching and studying the natural sleep rhythms and feeding patterns of young babies, one of Britain’s top maternity nurses shows you how to…

• Recognize the difference between hunger and tiredness

• Hear what your baby is really saying

• Establish a good feeding and sleeping pattern from day one

• Choose baby equipment and clothes

• Set up the nursery

• Deal with crying and colicky babies

• Wean baby from breast to bottle

• Introduce solid foods

    Awesome - BUY THIS BOOK!

    Mother of twins and started with Gina's schedule from day 1 and my kids are angels. They are almost 1 and sleep from 7pm - 7am (and have for months). Gina's schedules are the best. Stick to it - it really works!

    MUST HAVE IT

    I have been using this book for the past 10 years since I start to babysitt I always recommend this book to the families. Now I am a mom and my baby is eating and sleeping beautifully. The routines are incredible helpfult it tells you how to start everyday and the changes you should do as you baby gets older. It also informs you when your baby is ready for solids since every child is different. It gives you a list of foods that should be introduce first. Being a mom was never so easy. Sleepless nights forget about. Sleep like a baby knowing that you baby is sleeping too. I STRONGLY SUGGEST THIS BOOK FOR ALL MOMS. This book will make you want more babies.

    Best advice a new parent can get....

    A friend recommended this book to me before our first child was born. Being a new parent can be intimidating...this book really points out the small but important facts that help. I also have had my little girl sleeping through the night 'breast fed' since she was 2 months old. People do not believe me. The book gives a schedule to stick by and I did it and it works. I started the schedule as soon as we came home from the hospital. The book breaks it down from newborn to 1 month, 2 months, 3 months, and so on. It teaches you to adjust to the babies age and growing spurts...if you have a very hungry baby or a fussy baby. I recommend this book to everyone that is having a baby. I never was the tired mom who could not do anything--I got plenty of rest..Thanks to this book!

    Great Book!!!

    I have twins that weren't sleeping through the night. When they were 4 months old I bought this book and it changed my life. My twins are now 8 months old, and sleep 12 hours every night-uninterrupted!!! It's WONDERFUL!

    Best Gift ever received

    I am the third of my friends to use this book as a guide for raising my now 5 month old girl. We've used it since we got home from the hospital and people can't believe how well she sleeps. She was sleeping without a night feed since 3 months and has been sleeping 12 hours a night since. The schedule works exactly as the book outlines, which works out wonderfully with my demanding graduate school schedule. This book really works!!! Makes a great shower gift for mothers to be.

    Best Money I Have Ever Spent!

    I didn't get this book until my youngest son was 3 months old and in 3 days we were both sleeping through the night. He is now two and a half and is the best little sleeper. Nap time and bed time are never stressful for us. It is now my standard baby shower gift and I tell every pregnant woman I see to get it. To bad you have to order it from Barnes and Noble, they should definately keep this book in stock so that stressed out mom's who walk in have the benefit of immediate access to this 'Baby Bible'. A MUST HAVE FOR EVERY EXPECTING MOMMIE!!
