Both my wife and I were recommended to read this book by a few people, we had no idea what to expect regarding routines with our first bub. I understand the importance of a routine and we had previously discussed it prior to reading this book. I think some points in the book need to be taken very objectively, I am not sure you can apply all the information in this book to every child. Some points seem very out of place, others seem unnecessarily forceful. A lot of the routine largely depends on the individual child.
Again some really good information, but I don't know the entire book can be used as gospel.
