Summary

Research shows that "normal" infant sleep is not what most experts claim it is. In fact, many of today's sleep "problems" with young babies and children predominantly occur in the developed world. 

In Why Your Baby's Sleep Matters, renowned gentle parenting expert Sarah Ockwell-Smith demonstrates how nurturing babies at night helps their brain development, and covers the topics every parent of a new baby will need to know about, including naps, SIDS, night weaning, and coping with your own exhaustion - and even dealing with advice and criticism from others.

So reassuring

This book has given me so much confidence in what I instinctively do with my son (bed share and feed to sleep) and has helped me to ignore the raised eyebrows and unsolicited advice I get when people find out that’s what I do. I also stopped tracking his sleep and feeds on an app which I did for a few weeks (advised to do so by a friend) and my stress levels dropped dramatically. I now can calmly accept that my baby knows what he needs and I feel so much happier when I do everything I can to meet those needs, as does he! He wakes up every morning with such a big smile and it is utterly joyful. I highly recommend this book
