The average baby sleeps between 10 and 16 hours a day according to Parenting Magazine. But, for any parent who has raised a child, it is well known that these hours can come at nearly any time, with the least likely time being during the middle of the night. Coaxing and comforting a baby to sleep through the night is one of the earliest and daunting tasks that young parents face and can lead to raised stress and tension levels and a whole slew of problems for both you and your baby. The tips in this book are designed to provide every parent with the knowledge they need to help their baby feel more comfortable in their crib and start sleeping through the night not only for the first time, but consistently for the foreseeable future. You will learn exactly how much sleep your baby needs and what traditional definitions of sleep have to say about children under the age of two, including how they sleep and what they need in their sleep. You will learn the rules of infant and baby sleep and how they may not fit into your traditional notions of slumber and why it is necessary to think carefully before taking any additional measures. The necessary tools you need for helping your baby sleep through the night, including the right music, the right food, the right bedding, and the right amount of attention. You will learn when it is best to leave your baby to themselves and when they need you late at night, and what kinds of sleep disturbing habits they and you might be performing that is keeping them from sleeping comfortably. Experts in child psychology, pediatrics, and sleep have been interviewed and provided their experiences in the book to help all new parents deal with the trials and tribulations of a baby who will not sleep through the night. You will learn how certain developmental factors can affect sleep and what situations, however small, can disrupt sleep entirely. You will learn when it is not your fault and when you don t deserve blame and how things might change when your baby becomes a toddler.

Do you want to raise a well-behaved, happy child but feel that common forms of discipline used today, which focus on rewarding, excluding or punishing children, don't work for your family? In The Gentle Discipline Book, Sarah Ockwell-Smith debunks many commonly held beliefs about punishment and motivation, and provides an alternative approach that will empower you to discipline your child in an effective way and with respect. Gentle discipline is not about mollycoddling your child or being a pushover - it means understanding your child, having realistic expectations of them, and responding to their misbehaviour appropriately. It focuses on teaching and learning, not punishment or rewarding. In her trademark practical style, Sarah offers solutions for coping with the most common discipline challenges, including: - whining and sulking - aggressive and destructive behaviour - not listening and refusal to do things - rudeness and backchat - sibling rivalry - lying - swearing - low self-esteem and a lack of self-confidence The advice is appropriate to a wide range of ages, from toddler to teenager, and, if you have been using more traditional form of discipline, it will give you the tools - and the confidence - to change to a more mindful approach.

Parenting trends come and go. Gentle parenting is different - it isn't a label for a precise set of rules but a method of parenting that embraces the needs of parent and child, while being mindful of current science and child psychology. It means parenting with empathy, respect, understanding - and boundaries. In The Gentle Parenting Book, Sarah Ockwell-Smith provides a trustworthy combination of what-to-expect information and gentle-parenting solutions to the most common challenges faced by parents with young children. Sarah addresses a wide variety of topics, including coping with a crying baby, introducing solid foods and creating healthy eating habits, potty training, starting nursery and school, sibling rivalry, tantrums, whining and sulking, aggressive behaviour and much more. And for those parents who have previously used a more authoritarian style of parenting, there's plenty of advice - and reassurance - on making the transition to a gentler approach. For many, gentle parenting comes as a relief because it chimes with their deepest instincts about the best way to raise their children.
