I have three books that I want to share with others. I have copied the product descriptions from AMAZON. My own words are in green.

"A Christian guide to the practical, moral, marital and spiritual challenges of infertility. There's good news for couples who have been diagnosed as infertile; more than half of them will eventually conceive a child. One in six Americans of childbearing age experiences infertility problems-typically causing stress, sexual difficulties, marital discord, and a disturbing uncertainty about the future. This book focuses on building an attitude of hope and optimism."

This book was given to me by my sister about 3 years ago. I've been there and I want to pass that encouragement on to others. It was very uplifting.

"There are two schools of thought for encouraging babies to sleep through the night: the hotly debated Ferber technique of letting the baby "cry it out," or the grin-and-bear-it solution of getting up from dusk to dawn as often as necessary. If you don't believe in letting your baby cry it out, but desperately want to sleep, there is now a third option, presented in Elizabeth Pantley's sanity-saving book The No-Cry Sleep Solution. Pantley's successful solution has been tested and proven effective by scores of mothers and their babies from across the United States, Canada, and Europe. Based on her research, Pantley's guide provides you with effective strategies to overcoming naptime and nighttime problems. The No-Cry Sleep Solution offers clearly explained, step-by-step ideas that steer your little ones toward a good night's sleep--all with no crying."

I don't want to say this too loud because I may jinx it and some people might want to cuff me across the head, but (I'll say it very softly....) except for the first three months we have never had any major problems with Samuel sleeping. He goes to bed at 7 p.m. and we don't hear a peep out of him until 7 a.m. the next morning. Sorry. Anyway, I do understand that lack of sleep can drive you batty (the first three months was a killer...), so I thought I'd pass this great information on too.

"On Becoming Babywise brings hope to the tired and bewildered parents looking for an alternative to sleepless nights and fussy babies. The Babywise Parent Directed Feeding concept has enough structure to bring security and order to your baby's world, yet enough flexibility to give mom freedom to respond to any need at any time. It teaches parents how to lovingly guide their baby's day rather than be guided or enslaved to the infant's unknown needs. Healthy sleep in infants is analogous to healthy growth and development. Find out for yourself why a world of parents and pediatricians utilize the concepts found in On Becoming Babywise."

This was loaded with great information. I have other books in this series and really like them. I'm reading On Becoming Toddlerwise right now. This one has a few things highlighted in it.

Let me know if you are interested in one, two or all three of these books. If there are a lot of interested parties, I'll pick a comment randomly.
