Midwives dont like this book as it can give parents unrealistic expectations of what they can achieve. My midwife saw the book and referred to Gina as nazi-nanny saying that she'd seen too many new mums in tears because they felt they were failing to do what the book said was possible for everyone. I know quite a few families who've thrived on the structure and the kids are happy and well balanced - but it doesnt suit everyone... so read it - but dont beat yourself up if your little one doesnt fall in to the routine - or if like me you simply find it too stressful to follow yourself! My little boy is a happy soul and also goes to bed without a fuss at 7... so there are lots of different approaches that can work.
