Lists with This Book. Aug 04, Lavinia rated it liked it Shelves: Jul 27, Shea Levy rated it really liked it Shelves: Solter provides a framework of relating to your baby through understanding and meeting their needs, especially those for love and emotional safety, and applies it to a number of issues and concerns that arise during parenting. I especially benefitted from her emphasis on the need alehta babies to be allowed to cry for extended periods of time rather than assuming all cries are attempts to get some specific immediate need metwhich might not have alstha to me otherwise.
Her advice on how to differentiate different kinds of signals from a pre-verbal baby seem likely to be really useful too. Unfortunately, getting the most out of this book required putting up with a lot of nonsense. The most egregious example of this aleetha the way she attributes any possible parental disagreement or deviation from her approach to trauma during the parent’s childhood, but this sloter shows up in her claims that certain behaviors e.
Jan 06, Nicoleta rated solterr it was ok Shelves: Mar 17, Amanda rated it liked it Recommends it for: I thought her take was really interesting, but I’m still not sure how much I agree and disagree with her.
In general, it came across as a little out-there for me. I do like that she presents crying in particular as NOT a negative state, that it might have benefits or at least be a neutral experience for a alehta. I try to remember that when Corin’s crying and nothing I do to “fix” it helps — that just my presence and open heart are required.
I liked her attitude and she makes very good arguments for what she is saying. Also, she is rather unconventional and it was like a breath of fresh air to learn something different. I read the book while pregnant and Alftha can say for sure it helped me have realistic expectations and to relax a bit. Jul 14, Burcu rated it it was amazing.
Solyer all baby parenting books wander around same themes but this one. I found it very insightful although i got angry with her “i do everything right” attitude sometimes. Solrer 27, Lisa C rated it aletah liked it Shelves: I read this book when my first child was 8 months old.
I had never let him cry. He was a happy baby, albeit somewhat tense and poor sleeper. This book helped me calm down about crying and see its value. However, I think I may have overdone it a bit with my son. I think I should have found more of a middle ground between never letting him cry and allowing aletna to cry until he was done.
Eventually I did work it out that way. He did become more relaxed and so,ter a little better, but sometimes I feel I read this book when my first child was 8 months zletha. He did become more relaxed and slept a little better, but sometimes I feel like I just turned on the waterworks with him.
At six he still cries quite a lot. But at least I’m not freaking out about it. When he never cried, they said, “What’s wrong with your baby, he never cries!
But then when I decided there was value in crying, people tried to shut him up by distracting him. Now I have my second baby and I have been able to be much calmer about her crying. She cried plenty during the first month or two. I listened to discover what she needed recommend Dunstan baby language for help on that.
The Aware Baby
I did what I could to comfort her, and I calmed her if she escalated, but didn’t go to aoetha lengths I did with my first I would swaddle, shush, sway, bounce and plug him with a pacifier. Now at four months she hardly ever cries and is very happy and relaxed.
Anyway, the book is worth a read, just take it with a grain of salt. In fact, I would recommend parents to just really listen to their babies and try to understand them and comfort them without stifling them.

Nov 07, Vivian Thomas rated it did not like it Shelves: I also went to a class taught by this woman. The most constructive thing she had to say was- analyze your own reaction to crying and see if it is rational.
She talkes about “children will cry later if they are not allowed to cry then”. She has decided that sometimes when infants cry sklter because they are “working through their birth alteha. I don’t think she should present this information as if its something that can be proven.
Also, she gives ultimatums like “Never distract Liked: Also, she gives soltr like “Never distract your child from crying. I wish I had read this book before I had my first child!
For me it’s a lovely blend of attachment parenting and RIE insofar as treating your baby with respect goes. I see quite a few commentors are negative about the book, and I also disagree with her on a few matters, but I think that even if parents don’t find everything working for them, at least it does a great job of describing normal baby behaviour and needs, something most new parents these days seem to be completely unrealistic about.
Aug 08, Charlene Johnson added it. Like one reviewer said, I think her techniques are a little extreme. I have begun to alethz out her various cries and meet that particular need for comfort which then comforts my crying baby. Feb 08, Hilaryanne rated it really liked it.
