I love this book!

I recommend this book to everyone I meet. It really helped me to stop listening to others about how to raise my little girl and just do what felt right to me. It's OK to sleep with your baby and to carry them around all day.

Must read for new moms!

This book helped me understand why there is no such thing as crying it out. My son is a now a healthy confident 4 year old. When he's around other children his age & older it's obvious why the principles in this book work.
