My daughter is over a year old now, but I wish I had read this book when she was a little baby - it would have saved me so much grief! I think in the end, I ended up pretty much following most of their advice on my own, but it would have been so much better to have known how to handle a baby like this from the start rather than through months of experimentation on my part. If you think your child might be "high-need", then they probably are & you should get this book!
