Sleeping with your baby has been the norm for almost all cultures through almost all ages. Yet, in our modern world, the practice is fraught with questions and guilt. In Sleeping with Your Baby: A Parent's Guide to Cosleeping, a world-wide recognized cosleeping authority examines why simplistic recommendations against any and all forms of cosleeping are not only scientifically inappropriate, but dangerous and morally wrong. Walking readers through various ways to safely cosleep, whether bedsharing or not, this book provides the latest information on the potential scientific benefits of cosleeping. Complete with sections on minimizing hazards and risks, this book explains why and how to sleep with your baby.

A very short book looking at the many benefits of cosleeping and how to do it safely. I found the benefits sections well written and provocative, with many neat facts like no study has shown interrupted sleep is worse than uninterrupted. However, the section dealing with how to cosleep was extremely short. I felt this was the main promise of the book, and really all it did was give about 12 things to look for. I would have liked more information like sleeping positions, what to do if the baby is making noises, how to respond to a squirmy baby. None of this is in here, and I'm left to look up this information elsewhere. This book left me very motivated to cosleep, but I don't feel confident knowing how to. ( )
