Do you suffer from sleep deprivation because.

Do you suffer from sleep deprivation because. Toddler Timmy refuses to nap and goes to bed only after five bedtime stories, three glasses of water, and the binkie that can never ever be washed. One expert says to let them scream themselves to sleep, another says the family bed is best, but the one thing everyone can all agree on is that nobody sleeps if the children don't.

When I was pregnant, I was amazed that there wasn't a book out there that warned women how difficult the path to procreation could be. So I wrote one myself, sent it out to a handful of publishers and was lucky enough to get it published! It became a hit and led to this series of Sucks books that help readers get through some of the sucky sides of life.

Do you suffer from sleep deprivation because...

Your baby only dozes off in your arms--rendering you unable to move? Your toddler refuses to nap and only goes to bed after five bedtime stories, three glasses of water, and the binkie that can never ever be washed? One expert tells you to let them scream themselves to sleep, while another says the family bed is best?

One thing's for sure: Nobody sleeps if the children don't. Amid all the conflicting advice, Bedtime Sucks is the only book to admit that trying to get your kid to sleep sure does suck!

Inside, authors Joanne Kimes and Kathleen Laccinole cover:

Good sleep habits that start in the womb; The Zen Commandments of getting the baby to sleep through the night; Why the hand that rocks the cradle is the one that's constantly exhausted; and Travel dos and don'ts, potty training troubles, how to juggle more than one sleepy child at a time, and more.

With the signature hilarity that has made the Sucks series a hit, Kimes and Laccinole tackle bedtime, naptime, and all the wakey-wake time on the way to a full night's sleep.

This book wasn't *bad*, but it didn't have any information I hadn't already gleaned from various online articles, and the sense of humor was very much not for me. A joke about how it's not fair that one's husband gets to sleep through the night is one thing, but it felt like the author was weaving a constant thread of resentment through every chapter, and that made it very unpleasant to read. (I can only imagine what it would have been like to read if I were a dad and not a mom!)

Also, the author suggests giving babies rice cereal so that they sleep longer; there's no evidence (aside from anecdata) that giving babies solids helps them sleep, and some evidence that very young babies might sleep worse (because their guts aren't ready for anything that isn't milk or a milk substitute.)

So I picked up Bedtime Sucks a number of months ago when I first realized I was pregnant. Now that I'm nearing my due date, I decided to start reading it, hoping for some tips that will make my first year with my first child go smoother than some say it will. Well, I'm pleasantly surprised at this lil book. First of all, it's pretty funny... you won't get bored reading it. There are a lot of pop culture references and funny scenarios that keep you smiling and reciting passages to your friends. Next, though it focuses on sleep, it has tips and pros and cons for many other things, not just bedtime. A lot of them tie into a successful sleep routine but, many are useful just on their own too.

Happy reading! :)

I am soon a mum to be .... I got this book from a friend for my baby shower.... It is the most unfunny, offensive, clueless and depressive book I ever read. It is not only a bunch of assumption based on possibly personal life experiences from either the author or her friends and not on actual studies. With a Master degree in Human Rights Law, I find the female author very much against the male population in relation to fatherhood (page 54 - "Why husbands should be destroyed"), or why the partner goes out for a pack of cigarette and never return... just because of the baby not sleeping or having difficulty to get to sleep? This is non sense ... Not to mention the chapter on "the life of a baby monitor", page 73... Is really correct that the author suggests to use the baby monitor to "spy" on your daughter (a son is never mentioned) to check if she behaves with the boyfriend or listen to her telephone conversation with her friends? Protect your child is one thing...spying on them is another...Are these type of "tips" a suggestion on how bad of a parent's job you have been doing so far as you were not able to build a trustworthy communication with your own child/teen? And why does the author simply refers in most of cases throughout the book to "her" as in "daughters" and not much about "sons"? Please, do yourself a favour....save your money and purchase another book .....

This book my husband's step dad bought me. I originally wasn't going to read it because we had mastered our bed time routine but I am so glad I did it is the best book. I am sad it took me so long to read it. But I am going out and buying a copy for every babyshower I go to. It is a must read for all moms.
