I am so glad I had it. Imagine doing that to a tiny, helpless creature? When its so easy to do it with gentle love. One person found this helpful. First I'll say that I am a great respecter of Dr.
Fleiss and his work - I've found him incredibly helpful in my career as a mommy. But this book was a big disappointment. I have 2 children [a toddler and a preschooler] who are very poor sleepers. I bought this book hoping for some help in getting them to sleep better. It was useless to me, unfortunately. This book contains a great explanation of how babies and children [and even grown ups] sleep. It is very supportive of the 'family bed' or 'co-sleeping' and very 'attachment parenting' oriented. This would be a wonderful book for an expecting or brand new mother who doesn't know what to expect concerning how her baby will sleep.
Sweet Dreams: A Pediatrician's Secrets for Baby's Good Night's Sleep
But if you already have a child who has a sleep problem, you will find very little of practical use here. Fleiss promises to tell you how to get your child to sleep in a healthy way, but what he offers are very simplistic, common sense ideas that any half way intelligent parent would probably be using anyway. For those of us already doing all these common sense things, there is nothing else suggested.
Fleiss assumes that any parent who does these things will have a child who sleeps blissfully all night [or as much as is age appropriate]. This simply isn't true in many cases. He also includes some more strange things - for example, he tries to build a case that circumcision causing nightwaking. First of all, there is no research that actually supports this. Second of all, my daughter and my intact son are both horrible sleepers. So this really isn't helpful at all. He also maintains that non-flammable polyester causes cancer and so does television.
One thing I found particularly odd was the section on co-sleeping where he suggests just explaining sex to your children [because they can handle it at any age, no matter how young] and the kids will probably just leave the room when they see mom and dad start getting 'affectionate'. Not in my house anyway I think I'll allow my babies and preschoolers to hold on to their innocence a bit longer, thanks.
Overall, I did not find this book useful. She offers concrete ideas and solutions that are completely lacking here. I was looking for a book with objective information on how to get an infant to sleep through the night.
I was looking for a book with comparisons of the different methods available. Instead this book promotes a liberal parenting style rather discussing solutions to sleep issues, ie. Very disappointed in the amount of useful information provided. It seems there are two types of people when it comes to raising children. The first group eats lots of whole grains, worries about their child's aura and the alignment of their chakras. The second group works, pays taxes, and tries to live their lives.
If you're in the chakra crowd you'll love this book. The down to earth crowd like me found this book only fit for starting a fire.

If you want guilt about circumcision buy this book. If you want real help try something else. While I utilize attachment parenting for my two children, I have not reached the level of fanaticism that Dr. This isn't really a book with a clear method for helping your child to sleep through the night, but a series of reasons that may or may not be why your child cannot sleep soundly.
He then gives suggestions such as not artificially heating your home, but using a heavier comforter and warmer pajamas to keep nasal passages from drying out Convenient for those of us who live in areas where the temperature can reach below zero in the winter.
Another suggestion is that you conclude all daily activities by nightfall and avoid using artificial light so that you can work with your internal clock in setting a bedtime.
Fine if you want to go to bed at 5: I'm not saying that there aren't any usable ideas here, it just seems as if there isn't any middle ground for compromising on any of his suggestions.

Aug 25, phoenix rated it did not like it Shelves: Sep 30, Heather rated it it was amazing. Fleiss is pro-breast, anti-circumcision and pro-cosleeping. Yes, these are his opinions on the subjects If you already have your mind made up and disagree with Dr. Fleiss on these issues, you probably will not like this book and will not find it useful.
I read it when I was pregnant with my 1st son. At the time, Dr. At the time, I was planning to breastfeed and to not circumcise. But I was against cosleeping. However, the more I read, the more I understood the history and benefits of cosleeping. Breastfeeding and cosleeping fit perfectly and naturally together. The section discussing how circumcision disrupts mood and sleep patterns was especially informative.
I am very glad I read this book. It turned out to be one of the best 'parent-advice' books I've read so far. May 06, Jennifer rated it it was ok Shelves: This book seems a bit outdated, even though the copyright is He also seems very much set on what the right way is like have to wear pajamas to bed, have to keep room clean, etc.

The worst part is that he tends to quote research saying things like he has read "all" the relevant research, and it's usually not good to be absolute. He also goes into great detail about the different stages of sleep, but in very different terms than I've read elsewhere, and the book doesn't seem very well orga This book seems a bit outdated, even though the copyright is He also goes into great detail about the different stages of sleep, but in very different terms than I've read elsewhere, and the book doesn't seem very well organized.
I think he provides some useful info, but nothing dramatic, and nothing that you can't get elsewhere and better. May 22, Ronni rated it did not like it Shelves: Leonardo DiCaprio's endorsement was the best part!
