The Newborn Sleep Book
"For many growing families, newborn sleep is the holy grail--much-discussed, highly sought after, and frustratingly out of reach. This book is the first and only guide to present a simple, attainable sleep program for newborns shortly after coming home from the hospital. Developed by two veteran pediatricians, the Jassey Way boasts a more than 90 percent success rate for babies one month old or younger, with feedings every four hours during the day, satisfying the baby's nutritional needs on a 24-hour basis. With clear guidance and real-life stories, The Newborn Sleep Book presents detailed advice for both breastfed and formula-fed babies, dispelling widely held misconceptions about the frequency of feedings, "crying it out," and other essential topics. The book also offers tips and tricks to create an environment that fosters sleep, including swaddling, the use of pacifiers, lighting, the effects of sounds, and more. Safe, proven, and straightforward, the Jassey Way offers the fastest path to a sound night's sleep--for babies and their parents"-- Provided by publisher "The first and only proven, safe plan for a sound night's sleep for newborns-and parents. Here is the first and only guide to lay out a detailed sleep program for newborns-as early as the first few weeks of life. Developed and refined by two successful pediatricians, the "Jassey Way" boasts a more than 90% success rate of getting children to sleep through the night prior to their one month birthday. A safe and proven technique, the Jassey Way uses a feeding schedule that allows newborns (and their parents) a full night's sleep at a younger age than other sleep training techniques"-- Provided by publisher

Do not bother with this book. This book needs to come off the shelves. It is incredibly naïve and biologically negative to attempt to sleep train a newborn. Newborns require not only food, but parents presence (safety) 24/7. If you want to sleep train your newborn, maybe you shouldn't have had a baby. Tired? Suck it up. This book could potentially have a negative affect on a whole generation of children. Not feeding at night will lead to failure to thrive and emotional problems later in life.
