Well Worth the read!
We have been using this book for our newborn and have seen great improvements day by day, sure there are some iffy or touchy subjects but take some of the advice put in to play in your household and things will be great!
Worked for us!
This is a great book. I love how it focuses on baby as a part of the family unit, and not the center of the universe! It’s full of great information about baby’s feeding and sleep needs and how babies thrive on a flexible schedule. […] I don’t have one bad thing to say about this book. It’s definitely worth a read.
