Why when is more important than how

Teaching your baby or toddler to sleep through the night can be a bewildering and frustrating experience. Should you let your child "cry it out" or follow a "no-cry" solution? Are you tired of endless hours of rocking your baby to sleep? Why won't your baby stay asleep? And why is last month's no-fail bedtime routinesuddenly useless?

The key to sleep success is not which approach you take; what really matters is when you use it. Because your baby is changing and developing, your sleep strategy should change too. Timing is everything. For example, the Ferber method may work well for a 6-month-old baby, but it is potentially disastrous for a9-month-old. Bed Timing walks you through the stages of childdevelopment, from birth to 4 years, and looks at their implications forchanging bedtime habits. Authoritative, sensible and packed with informativecase studies, Bed Timing is the essential companion for all parents.
