Dr. William Sears prides himself on having two pediatrician sons to follow in his footsteps. It seems that Dr. Marc Weissbluth – author of Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child – can now also boast a pediatrician son, Dan.
Dan Weissbluth has recently started a blog of his own here on WordPress dealing with infant sleep and other issues, with frequent contributions from his father.
I have to admit that I have not used nor read Weissbluth’s book in full, only peeked at it using the “Look Inside” feature at Amazon. Some people claim his methods are harsher than Ferber, some the opposite; from what I understand, Weissbluth sets out several different methods varying from ‘cry’ to ‘no cry’, leaving the reader to choose the method which best suits their own temperament and that of their baby. The father/son duo are now soliciting questions and comments, however, so if you’ve tried any of the methods and have run into problems with them, or have any questions regarding the evidentiary basis for the method(s), this looks like a golden opportunity to ask.
