I have recently had my 3rd child and all have been brought up using the Gina Ford Contented Baby Book. I must admit I was sceptical of the routine before my first child was born, having no idea of how to bring up a child but as it was recommended by a friend I trust I decided to give it a go. The routines are structured (which suits me!) and I have nothing but good things to say about the book. My 3 children have all slept through the night from 6-7 weeks and are incredibly content during awake times. I am constantly being told how happy my kids are and friends cant believe how calm our house is in the evenings with all children tucked up and asleep by 7pm. This book would suit anyone who likes an organised life and believes routine and structure is fundamental for a childs development. I have since heard negative feedback on the books and stories that Gina Ford does not allow you to cuddle your babies. This is rubbish - my kids are cuddled and loved as much as any children and thrive on the fact that they get enough sleep! Gina should be knighted!
