“Colic can be resolved in days, not weeks or months. Colic and Sleep Secrets is a groundbreaking step-by-step manual to help your baby sleep peacefully.”
Colic can be resolved in days, not weeks or months. Colic is intrinsically connected to sleeping and sleeping is a learned behavior. Responsive parenting enables parents to interpret the clear signals their baby gives. In Colic and Sleep Secrets, child nurse and midwife Alison Williams draws on 30 years of experience to teach you your baby’s non-verbal language. You will learn everything you need to know to prevent colic, including how to get feeding right, recognize tired signs and how to understand sleep cycles. Alison teaches you that your baby can learn great sleeping patterns (without the trauma of being left to scream it out) and gives you the expertise to deal with difficult days. Covering the first three months of your baby’s life, when sleeping and feeding patterns develop, Colic and Sleep Secrets is a groundbreaking step-by-step manual that gives you the invaluable knowledge and skill-base to prevent colic and to help your baby sleep peacefully.
