Parenting is a 24/7 job, and it can get pretty lonely at 3:00 a.m., especially if you're the kind of parent who can't bear to let your child cry himself to sleep. That's why The "Lull-a-Baby Sleep Plan "is so wonderful. Dr. Cathryn Tobin not only has a gentle, caring approach to your baby, but also has great empathy for what you're going through. New parents can help their infant learn healthy sleep habits from the get-go, and those who've missed the early window of opportunity can backtrack and solve bedtime battles with an older child. Drawing on her years of experience as a midwife, a pediatrician, and a mom, Dr. Tobin illustrates her techniques with a wide variety of sleep problems. This is one book that should be in every parent's library. --Mary Mohler, Editor-at-Large, "Parents" magazine
"Cathryn Tobin gives new parents the encouragement and inspiration to develop the skills they need to help their children sleep. Anyone who has struggled to put a child to bed, night after night, will appreciate the honest, direct and practical approach Tobin uses. As a parent of four children and senior editor at "ePregnancy," I know that sleep is one of the toughest issues new parents face. Kudos for a terrific road-map to a good night's sleep for all kids - and their parents." -- Julia Rosien, Senior Editor, "ePregnancy" Magazine.
Weclome to the Land of Nod: Dr. Tobin teaches us how to recognize and read our kids' cues so we can help them - and us! - get a better nights' sleep.
Her down-to-earth approach is also refreshing. A great read for parents, new and 'old'! -- Kathryn Dorrell, Life Editor, "Canadian Living Magazine
"The best way I've ever seen to help new parents get more sleep. --Dr Henry Solow, Chief of Medicine, Markham Stouffville Hospital
I thought the first night would be the worse! I was so excited when my three-month-old daughter, Paige, fell asleep on her own that I called Dr C's office and left her this message, You were right about Paige being able to fall asleep on her own. But you were wrong when you said it would take about twenty minutes---it only took ten! --Camille
This really works! Dr. C's advice completely changed my life and I have passed it on to others who feel the same way! --Lisa T.
I'm pretty born again about the "Lull-a-Baby Sleep Plan." I followed the 7 day plan and even though I was exhausted, I didn't give up. It wasn't easy for me to listen to my baby fuss, but I never felt like I was deserting her. Thankfully, Cali began to sleep for longer stretches before the week was up. --Stephanie, I knew what I was doing wasn't working, but I didn't know how to make things right.
"a wonderful book . . . If Dr. Tobin can't be your pediatrician, read her book!"--Jack Canfield, coauthor of "Chicken Soup for the Mother's Soul"
