If you only read one book..., September 10, 2003
Reviewer: Sarah G Kochan from Chicago, IL United States
After getting tons of advice from different parents, I read this book and began to apply his methods and believe it or not, it really works. People told me not to let my baby sleep alot in the afternoon so she would "sleep good at night" and that could not be further from the truth.

I would not say that my baby is "colicky", but she can be very fussy when she is over tired and that can be very trying on a new parent. She is a much happier baby and we're enjoying the heck out of her now thanks to Dr. Weissbluth. I can't wait to read his other books.


I wish I had this 3 years ago, September 5, 2003
Reviewer: A reader from chicago suburbs
At this moment three years ago I was in the middle of a special kind of hell. I had a baby who simply would not stop screaming, who was impossible to get to sleep, and who I spent the entire day rocking, holding, carrying. I had Weissbluth's "Healthy Sleep Habits" which is a very good book, but it was hard for me to figure out exactly what to do with my colicky, fussy child. I thought I was either an idiot or completely insane because I could not for the life of me recognize his "drowsy cues" - well, as I have gleaned from this new book, colicky babies often don't exhibit them or they are incredibly difficult to recognize.

This book perfectly addresses everything we were going through. If I had had this book, I would have been less worried that things were going to go on this way forever. I also would have had a very clear plan of action for sleeping ("Healthy" does go over these things, but for me it was not clear and simple enough for my sleep-deprived, colic-crazed brain). At the time I had Sears's "Fussy Baby Book" and basically it said, "this is the way your child is, you need to learn to deal with it." Not very comforting, and also not very accurate. Once my child was older, and I understood Weissbluth's sleep concepts better and my kid wasn't chronically overtired (from months of colic) he was no longer a "high-needs child."

Some people blast Weissbluth as that cruel "cry it out guy" but please read this book before you jump to that conclusion. He encourages you to respond to your baby, not leave them to scream from day one. He is a huge fan of breastfeeding. His approach is humane and child centered, but unlike Sears, it is also practical and does take into account what a parent needs in order to be an effective parent.

A must read for parents of colicky babies, August 26, 2003
Reviewer: Victoria Ginn from Chicago, IL USA
This is a must read for all parents whose babies are colicky or extremely fussy. Dr. Weissbluth offers effective, sound advice that produces results. As a mother of an extremely colicky baby, it was a welcoming relief to find a book that directly addresses my issues, such as ways to soothe the crying, facts and fiction about colic, and how I can start healthy sleep habits even now.

Dr. Weissbluth provided encouragement which eased the emotional rollercoaster of having a colicky baby. I pick this book up at least every other day for continuous support. I highly recommend this book. It has helped me, my husband and our baby TREMENDOUSLY.
