But, for any parent who has raised a child, it is well known that these hours can come at nearly any time, with the least likely time being during the middle of the night. Coaxing and comforting a baby to sleep through the night is one of the earliest and daunting tasks that young parents face and can lead to raised stress and tension levels and a whole slew of problems for both you and your baby. The tips in this book are designed to provide every parent with the knowledge they need to help their baby feel more comfortable in their crib and start sleeping through the night not only for the first time, but consistently for the foreseeable future. You will learn exactly how much sleep your baby needs and what traditional definitions of sleep have to say about children under the age of two, including how they sleep and what they need in their sleep. You will learn the rules of infant and baby sleep and how they may not fit into your traditional notions of slumber and why it is necessary to think carefully before taking any additional measures. The necessary tools you need for helping your baby sleep through the night, including the right music, the right food, the right bedding, and the right amount of attention. You will learn when it is best to leave your baby to themselves and when they need you late at night, and what kinds of sleep disturbing habits they and you might be performing that is keeping them from sleeping comfortably. Experts in child psychology, pediatrics, and sleep have been interviewed and provided their experiences in the book to help all new parents deal with the trials and tribulations of a baby who will not sleep through the night. You will learn how certain developmental factors can affect sleep and what situations, however small, can disrupt sleep entirely.

Babies need care and attention for almost all aspects during his or her infant age. This is because they are still too young to manage their own life and they are still incapable of taking care of themselves such as feed themselves, bathe themselves, etc. Since babies cannot communicate to their parents verbally as to what their likes and dislikes are, what ails them, what makes them happy, etc.; parents must be ultra sensitive to their babies' needs as well as be knowledgeable about the things that are best for their babies while they are on their infant age. With this, parents should always know the right food to feed their babies and how to give them proper hygiene. Along with this, parents must also ensure that their babies get enough sleep that they need.
