Beatrice Hollyer wrote Sleep in collaboration with Lucy Smith, a health visitor with years of hands-on experience whom she first met when her own daughter was ten days old: 'Like a fairy godmother, she made my wish for a soundly sleeping baby come true.' Hollyer and Smith provide clear, sensible and effective advice on how to achieve peaceful, problem-free nights, from the first days of infancy throughout childhood.
