If you have a positive pregnancy test start reading this book immediately! Then re-read it in the middle of your pregnancy, and then closer to your baby's birth. Why? - To make the ideas given in the book so natural that no one could confuse you with that popular "cry-it-out" parenting style! The book is written with a huge unconditional love to newborn babies. On each and every page you feel the author's encouragement, support, and expertise. The author gives options, shares her experience and the experience of other parents. Elizabeth Pantley helps to understand what is happening to a new baby from both, physiological and psychological point of view. She explains complex processes in an easy-to-read and easy-to-understand manner. Listen to your baby, observe her cues, experiment with all possible gentle ways to comfort your baby, and finally develop your own healthy sleeping pattern that works for your baby (and for you too!) Elizabeth Pantley is a unique author, I always recommend her books to young parents suffering from a severe sleep deprivation and confused by contradictive recommendations. This book is a must in young parents' library!

I received this electronically, a format I don't usually read. I looked at it once and through the day was 80 pages in! This is definitely a book I want to hold in hand and keep available to look at from time to time...I enjoyed the beautiful pictures of sweet newborns! I read it in almost one sitting at first - so much sensible information and support tuned into mom and baby and their needs. Since there are no booklets of directions enclosed when parents bring home baby, we usually need to go on our own instinct, plus we receive (often unwanted and unsupportive) advice from everywhere-including complete strangers! I agree with another reviewer who said it should be read before baby is born, and it would be helpful to know all of the information beforehand for sure! For whatever reason, I never would read past birth when I read books during my pregnancy (especially first time) so lost out on a lot that could have helped me. I feel I was probably one who inadvertently woke my first daughter or roused her out of a light sleep in her cycle, or at least was very quick to go to her every little breath or move... I work with supporting moms and babies, and rereading this book every few months will keep me refreshed and remembering all her sensible and useful ideas, information, and techniques. Elizabeth Pantley includes acceptance and support for different babies and different parenting styles, including breastfeeding, attachment parenting, and family sleeping, and leaves open to you to try one thing at a time, and keep to use what works for you and your baby and family. It is excellent that she presents in that way; there are no HAVE TOs or dire consequences that you should or shouldn't try an idea (unlike advice you may get elsewhere that seems to be saying-"my way is the only right way!") There isn't right and wrong; there is just baby and family getting their best sleep possible-if that happens it is YOUR right way for your baby and family. Many techniques are simple, maybe common sense, but having all of them organized and together in one place is quite an accomplishment that Elizabeth successfully compiled.
