"I borrowed this book from the first LLL meeting I attended when my baby was just two weeks old. Another mother who had read it was leaning over me and strongly recommended it. The book is very well written, giving lots of solid evidence-based advice on the safe ways of bed sharing and co-sleeping. It also has mountains of information and advice around every issue imaginable around babies' sleep and breastfeeding. This book is a treasure. There is no danger of regretting its purchase - treat yourself and your baby to it!"
"I loved this; it's the book that would have saved me the most anxiety as a new mother. Going to my local LLL group showed me that sharing sleep with a baby was normal for many families, but this book gives you the evidence-based information and confidence to make your own sleep choices. It has the same reassuring and gently humorous tone as The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding (it shares some of the same authors) and is packed with tips and stories from real mothers as well as up to date research. I was going to donate my copy to my LLL group, but I can't bear to part with it!"
"This is a really empowering, well researched book on safe bedsharing for breastfeeding families. It's friendly and accessible yet you know what you reading is based on really solid research into mothers bedsharing with their breastfed babies."
"Great book full of excellent common sense suggestions and lots of references to research. I wish it had been available when our little one was younger. I will be recommending this to all my pregnant friends."
