This is a very detailed and research-based book about sleep. Not just infant's sleep, but also the sleep of the parents. This book covers much physiological discussion and strategies that can help with improving sleep. It starts with a very helpful myth-busting chapters to break apart 10 myths that are common when it comes to helping your infant sleep. I am a soon-to-be dad and am excited for this journey, this book is very encouraging and it help frames your perspective on not just merely look at the measurable and quantifiable part of the infant's sleep, but to look at it as a whole.
