Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not quite as expected I gave this book 3 stars just because it wasnt what id expected! Im a mother to 3 month old ebf twins and have been having alot of trouble sleeping at night, so this seemed like the perfect book for me...this book as all about AP and bed sharing (we bed share) but somehow managed to make me feel like ill be devoting my days and nights fully to my children (dont get me wrong here, I am against CIO or neglecting my childs cries and do believe that babies should feed on demand not schedule). So I just ended up feeling more burdened than before reading the book. On the other hand, it gives gr8 insight to bed sharing and sids if u were against it in the first place.
