The Baby Sleep Project: A Nordic Inspired Step-by-Step Program

by Laura Andersson

The updated version of the stereotypical mother hasn’t made the family life of modern women any easier. These days, you are supposed to bring up well-balanced and well-behaved children, fed on nothing but organic food in a harmonious and beautifully decorated home, run marathons, travel to distant parts of the globe and actively maintain an up-to-date blog telling everyone about it. Time is lamentably tight. Perhaps this is why sleeping is no more than a footnote in the lives of many modern people.

This book is a blend of personal testimonies from all over the world with simple, uncomplicated tips, collected together by a Finnish mother who decided she’s had enough of sleep deprivation and terrible nights. Laura is a parent like any other, except that she decided to do something about those sleepless nights that arose with her first child and that she absolutely did not want to live through the second time around – and this fact is the strength of the book – no academic theories, no celebrity paediatricians - finally, an author who speaks “the readers’” language!

She set this up as a personal project, where she applied all the practical tips she learned from other families’ experiences, and developed a method with a Nordic inspired twist – a practical example is having the babies taking a nap outside doors in sub-zero temperatures – which makes wonders every time!

The book also gives an insight into a good share of cultural curiosities, like the fact that some Finnish babies still start their early life sleeping in a cardboard box…

All the adventures and misadventures of this experience is depicted with warmth, humour and great openness. Above of all, her story is straightforward and practical – no complicated theories or heart-breaking methods.

Millions of parents experience the problem of restless babies, and the stories from around the world makes it easy to see how the problem of sleepless children is beyond a small family dilemma. It’s a theme that connects us all together. The book is written in a conversational tone and the audience falls into the category of modern, urban parents with not that much previous experience of baby care.
