Designed for the very many parents of babies with sleeping difficulties, this is a practical, solution-focused and objective guide to helping your baby get the rest they need. It does not preach a particular approach, but rather gives parents the tools they need to find the solution that most suits them, whatever the difficulty confronting them. It draws on the very latest research and clinical expertise to address the needs of babies at each stage of early development, offering case studies, tips and helping parents to devise a 'sleep plan' with which they feel truly comfortable. It will address a variety of different special needs, from colic to night terrors in older toddlers, and will also provide welcome support for other carers and family members, from babysitters and childminders to grandparents and siblings. Written by a qualified health visitor and independent sleep expert with a proven track record, it will enable all parents to regain a sense of empowerment, motivation and emotional wellbeing and - even more importantly - help babies to get the rest they need, when they need it.
