A great book for parents of toddlers which covers many issues which are linked to sleep issues; also dealing with tantrums, advice on potty training and answers to many common health questions.
I have read many books about bringing up children and I have found some of them very regimental - talking about routines, giving set times for feeds and sleeps, and at x months they will be doing this, this and this. I quickly put these books back, not liking that they see children as 'robots' and not individuals. I found this book to be very different and friendly, offering advice to common issues, offering suggestions in a friendly manner and to issues that parents struggle with but are offered little advice - how to cope with changes to routine, e.g. when the clocks go forward or back, what to do when you go abroad and have a time difference. However, this book has been written in friendly, plain English, with case studies to demonstrate ideas or dilemmas. A tried and tested guide to many common issues - I recommend to all to give it a try.
This book would make a great gift for parents who have babies or toddlers as a great resource to have on the shelf for ideas when they have a new hurdle to cross or need a different viewpoint.
Thank you to Ebury for sending me the book to review.
