    This does not seem to be full book and page numbers don’t match those referred to on official moms on call app!
  • Don’t Buy This Book!

    By joleesmith
    I was really excited about reading this book because it had been recommended to me by a friend. However, I did not find help with anything that I needed at all. There is absolutely no information on how to get your baby to go to sleep at night, only information on what to do after nighttime feedings. They also have a schedule that is very unrealistic for working families. They also do not have any information on how to transition your child to their schedule. I’ve worked for the last month to get my baby to go to bed at the 10 o’clock hour instead of around 1 AM. So starting bedtime at 6:30 is absolutely impossible. I’m also not going to make my baby wait The recommended three hours in between feedings when she is hungry between 2 and 2 1/2 hours. Super bummed about this book. I wish I could get my $11 back.
  • This book is amazing!

    By Monkey Girl 74
    When you come home from the hospital you have no guidance other than instinct on when to feed, do naps etc. I felt like I was going insane trying to read my child’s mind from day one. This book is an essential guide to help parents get on a schedule that seemed to keep me ahead of my child’s crying. It’s amazing. Thank you so much for writing this book.
  • Full Book Doesn’t Download

    By Crytzer
    The entire book doesn’t download. For example, the author refers to a section titled “nap times” but I don’t have that chapter. I also have fewer pages than the description of the book says I should have.
  • Waste of money, no help, don’t buy

    By ganders25
    This “book” offers no troubleshooting and no real help. It assumes your baby will follow these guidelines and this schedule, but what happens when he/she does not? The other information is so basic, most new moms more than likely already have this knowledge. It is also quite old fashioned and some of the advice is actually not great at all. Lastly this is not a book. It’s a PDF marketed as a book. Don’t buy this!!!
  • Apple should Remove this book

    By Jsurda
    Scam artists selling a glorified PDF as a book. Impossible to read on iPhone. This is not an iBook. It is a PDF that they uploaded and Apple should not allow this. Terrible.
  • Coldest Approach to Parenting

    By Well Read Momma
    If you would prefer to parent your child like he/she is a pet, not a human, this book is for you. I was extremely disappointed in the content, particularly since it was recommended to me by a pediatrician. Some of the advice contradicts health and safety recommendations by the AAP, LLL, and your everyday parenting experience. I read about the authors thinking, since they proclaimed to be Christian, the approach would be warm and caring. It, sadly, is not. Very cold and rigid, particularly for a breastfeed baby. If I knew how to return the electronic copy, I would. It's complete junk.
  • It works

    By canwall
    I had one of the nurses visit my home with my first child. Everyone finally got some sleep with the nurses' foolproof swaddle technique. I've read all their books and they are easy to read, logical and effective. Best money I've ever spent on childcare tips and I recommend them to everyone.
  • Hard to read on phone

    By Kjohnsonvt
    This book is in a weird format. It's very hard to read on the iPhone. I have to keep zooming in and scrolling around. I've read hundreds of books on my phone and never had a problem until this one. Content is good but just one of many perspectives to consider. I never buy paper books any more but wish I had on this one because it's difficult to read.
  • Disappointing

    By ASHLEYANN loves country
    I was really excited about this book when I first read it and immediately started applying what I read with my 4 week old son. My baby did his longest stretch of sleep that night and I was raving about this book. However, in the days that followed my baby wasn't following the schedule that this book laid out. I tried and tried but my baby was out and I could not wake him up for a feeding for almost 45 minutes and threw of the schedule leaving me feeling like a failure! I'm disappointed because this book does not provide any troubleshooting for when your newborn is crying and rooting around at 2 hours but they are not supposed to eat for 3 hours, or when my baby wakes almost every hour one night crying and wants to eat. This book just provides very basic bullet points of what your baby should be doing. Well, I can read plenty of books that tell me what my baby should be doing, but what about when they don't do that despite your best efforts? First time mommies need a lot more guidance than bullet points!
