SLEEP SOLUTIONS addresses one of the most vexing areas that any parent can face -- trying to get their baby to go to sleep easily and to sleep for longer periods as they get older. There's no such thing as a 'one-size-fits-all' theory and SLEEP SOLUTIONS will provide readers with information on and analysis of the many different approaches to ensuring every child gets a good night's sleep, from the controlled crying method popularised by Dr Richard Ferber and Gina Ford, through gentler methods such as fading, to the baby-led approach of co-sleeping. The book ways up the pros and cons of each, and most importantly helps parents to decide which method will best suit them and their child. With chapters on each phase of a baby's life until the age of two, this book is the only book a new parent should need.
