  • dr ferber book review
Dr. Ferber's book is the object of much debate as it is perceived as the book that advocates a "cry it out method" for managing infant sleep however, having read this book, this view not accurate.  I personally don't subscribe to the method, but I found the book useful for other reasons.

I believe parents will benefit from reading this book for several reasons. As a Home CEO™, we need to be knowledgeable parents and this book offers a foundation of knowledge and research on infant sleep that any parent will benefit from, whether or not we choose to implement a process "to the tee" or make our own variations to suit our particular families.

First, the author has a wealth of knowledge and the book has a stronger research base that is not matched in most other infant sleep books. Dr. Ferber is a Harvard professor, medical doctor and Director of Pediatric Sleep Disorders and the Children's Hospital of Boston and has over 20 years experience researching child sleep, so by reading this book, you get the advantage of a compilation of 20 years of scientific research (as opposed to anecdotes, one-off experiences etc).

This book offers the best scientific overview of sleep phases and the anatomy of sleep. Having a solid understanding of this will help you understand your child. One of the insights in the book is that no child sleeps through the night - even ones that we believe are. Instead they all wake several times a night due to sleep rhythms and the only difference is that some children are secure enough to put themselves back to sleep and others are unable to for various reasons.

Secondly, the book offers solutions for sleeping through the night that are balanced and based on years of research. The sleep training approach is not radical, as many purport. Instead it clearly indicates that sleep training should not be done prior to 3-4 months of age and only when certain conditions (medical, feeding requirements, etc) are first met. The sleep training methods have flexibility in their implementation, which allows parents to be as responsive to their children as they feel is necessary based on their child and their circumstances.

The book also provides several chapters on various toddler and older child sleep problems including nightmares, night terrors, bed wetting, etc. that make this a good reference book to have in your library as your child grows.
