From Publishers Weekly

May 21, 2012 – Popular pediatrician Karp (The Happiest Baby on the Block) points out that 60% 80% of parents say their kids have sleep problems. These make life all the more difficult for sleep-deprived parents who may get less than six hours of sleep per night and desperately grapple with conflicting bedtime advice from parenting experts and others. Karp lays a number of myths to rest in his latest book, including the idea that babies, who have shorter sleep cycles than adults, can t learn better sleep habits before three months of age. In fact, he gets right to work giving parents tips and tools to help their newborns develop good sleeping patterns, and then moves on to older babies and toddlers. Among the keys to Karp s sleep solutions are using womblike white noise, swaddling, and waking baby for a dream sleep before putting him down (in his own crib, co-sleeper, or bassinet rather than bed-sharing until he is at least four months old to help prevent SIDS). Karp does not recommend the crying it out method (arguing that the approach has a bad effect on an infant s sense of trust and security) except when all other measures fail. For older kids, he presents a humorously labeled twinkle interruptus tactic, in which the parents teach their child patience stretching. Exhausted parents will warmly welcome Karp s encouraging tone and innovative, think-outside-the-crib solutions.
