Q & As

Rated 3 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by great book...take it with a pinch of salt! I used this book with my son and was fortunate I didn't need to do controlled crying and to be honest I probably wouldn't of anyway but as per other reveiws (including Gina herself) use this as a guidline to fit around you which I did and follow it with a pinch of salt and it worked, not saying it works for every child or parent....I personally don't think Gina is trying to "tell you what to do" like some mention, its a guidline, I think if you don't like it then fine don't read it but I thought it worked and my son is now 3.5 yrs and is an amazing sleeper as was always a calm and contented baby and has helped many other parents I know, it hasnt made me a bad parent its just helped me! 21 August 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not for the gentle parent If you want your little one to be content, then don't buy this. It's not for those wanting to use a gentle parenting technique. Go with your instincts and your baby's needs, not someone else's rules. 03 August 2014
