The book is a little hard to navigate, but there is some really helpful information in here. I cannot emphasize enough how important it is for parents to start early to help their child learn to sleep well. Weissbluth is over-the-top about insisting kids get enough quality sleep although that’s arguably valuable in our overscheduled sldep and there are dire bu for kids who don’t.
