Giveaway – win a copy of ‘Sweet Sleep’

Breastfeeding is something I feel passionate about, and something I write about frequently. You can read some of my breastfeeding posts here. So when Pinter & Martin got in touch about one of their new books from La Leche League International, I knew it would be right up our street.

Sweet Sleep book review and giveaway

Sweet Sleep really appeals to my parenting style. It describes itself as an organic, natural book from a group of well informed researchers and writers who are willing to speak up on behalf of bed sharing for breastfeeding families. Full of tips and helpful hints about how to understand and respond to what your baby needs at night time and nap time, it’s something of a bible for breastfeeding mums and their families.

We have all seen the backlash that somebody gets when they dare to mention breastfeeding, bed sharing or ‘too much’ cuddling on social media. It always starts a debate, and so many fantastic parents have been led to doubt their abilities, their parenting methods and their baby’s needs. The last one really gets me – as if there is a thing as ‘too much’ cuddling?! People who believe this will spoil babies are so very wrong. 

Sweet Sleep is a gentle, encouraging book full of everything you need to know to follow the natural parenting style you desire. It contains everything from the emotional causes of crying and the sleep cycles of your baby to safe bed sharing practice and coping after a C section. All practical, valuable advice from real people who have been there before, backed up with professional research.

If you fancy winning a cope of Sweet Sleep for yourself, then enter my giveaway now.

    Don’t let them fall asleep in your arms – let them fall asleep in their cot or pram, otherwise they won’t learn how to get themselves back to sleep if they wake.

    A good bedtime routine works, but I found when mine were small and woke for night time feeds, only do what is necessary, dont speak or encourage smiles, keep feeds at night as bland and as boring as possible, any stimulation helps baby to think it might be playtime!

    I used never allow my lo in the bed during the night. But since she turned 8 no I relaxed this rule and feed on my side in bed twice a night. Everyone gets more sleep and its what works for us.
