Top pick for a doula and artist!
Reviewed in the United States on September 15, 2016
I used this with my second child, both of whom have been every-two-hours night nursers until they were two. I only let them go that long because I am a lazy breastfeeder and it was easier to nurse than wake up and hear them throw a fit in the middle of the night. I read it every night for a week and practiced the phrase used in the book, with a substitution of "milkies." He seemed to get it as a newly 2-yr-old, but was not pleased. Two months later, he puts himself back to sleep (still in our bed) and wakes up at the buttcrack of dawn, as 5 or 6...but at least it's light out!!
The only thing I would change is the flow of some of the wording...just a page or two feels a bit awkward. I love the illustrations...I have an art & design background and that part is highly important to me in childrens' books! I wouldn't recommend a book unless it was also visually appealing & I will sometimes reject library books if they don't have good illustrations. So the fact that I paid for this is something. ;-) I'm also a doula and I am adding it to my client lending library because it's so helpful! Top pick!
