All three books are published in paperback by Lion Hudson. See more details on each book below.


Sleep Solutions by Rachel Waddilove.  Published in paperback by Lion Hudson
£8.99

One issue dominates the lives of many new parents…sleep. Why won’t their baby sleep? What is the best     position to put him down in, and is  swaddling the answer? Are monitors – or even dummies – a good idea? What about the mother’s need for sleep – or the father’s, and the rest of the family? And how does the situation change when the baby is older, say three to six months, or coming up for a year? What are the sleep needs of a toddler, or an older child? And how should parents manage when the whole routine is thrown into the air, because the baby is teething, or has been ill?

In this accessible and practical book, Rachel Waddilove gives the answers. In a clear, no-nonsense and straightforward way, she shows parents how to take back control. Babies need to sleep: adults need to sleep as well. Her advice will ensure peaceful nights for the entire family.

When I was a brand new mother, I was overwhelmed! Rachel has a calmness, and knowledge about babies and children, that not only helped me soothe and ease the journey for me son, but also for me! Her tips and advice are invaluable.

"I had battled with Olivia (8 months) waking up in the night since we had dropped the 10pm feed two months earlier, but one conversation with Rachel changed all that. Rachel is very confident and informed whilst being very warm and understanding – in one call she gave me the strength to try some controlled crying on my own. She gave me her home and mobile number for support but with her encouragement I tried it and Olivia only took about 20 minutes to settle herself! One call with Rachel is all it took - she is a wonderful lady and I haven’t even met her!!"
Anna
