|The "Sleep Bible"|
Naturally, one doesn't turn down advice like that. I bought a copy and went to town highlighting, tabbing, and dog-earing (and those of you who know my militant bibliophile ways understand that I NEVER do that). I followed all of Dr. Weissbluth's instructions and referenced and re-read constantly. His suggestions started to really jive around my daughter's 8th week (Note: This book is awesome for ANY parent - not just first timers and/or infant wranglers). I felt like I was taking back some of the control in my chaotic world. I know it sounds grand and excessive, but I SWEAR that book saved my life and sanity.
I no longer have my well-worn, scribbled-in and loved copy. I think it's on its 4th or 5th owner by now. But I have since purchased at least 10 more copies to hand out at baby showers. Dr. Weissbluth, do you have a punch card?
