More than ever, new parents are bringing their babies into their beds, but ironically, many of these parents feel alone in doing so. With warmth and humor, Good Nights brings the family bed out of the closet, and gives expert answers to parents' common questions on everything from safety to sound sleep to sex. Good Nights also offers easy-to-tailor advice on when and how to move children into their own beds, and reasoned responses and snappy comebacks for critics. The authors build their case for the family bed on new scientific research, which has uncovered a wealth of advantages for babies who share their parents' bed. Among these benefits are possible protection from SIDS, and -- paradoxically -- more independence later in life. With its perfect blend of science and common sense, Good Nights is poised to become the new best friend and must-have accessory of all new parents.
