"Sleep is probably the most misunderstood and confusing aspect of parenthood. Babies are supposed to sleep most of the time, aren't they? Well, some do, but an awful lot don't. Gina Ford's practical guide helps parents understand their children's sleep patterns and gives them invaulable advice on how to solve or avoid common problems. Starting on the first day at home after the birth, she advises new parents to disregard any advice to let the baby's habits rule the roost. By creating a structure of regular feeding, sleeping and playing times, parents can help their baby to find a rhythm that will be comfortable for all concerned. Among the questions this book answers are- How much sleep do babies need? What's the difference between a sleep and a nap? When can certain sleeps be dropped? ina Ford's blueprint for creating happy and rested babies and parents has been successfully applied over many years. "
