The Walrus - - CONTRIBUTORS’ NOTES -

“The Busi­ness of Bed­time,” p. 34 “As a par­ent, you’re thrown into not know­ing what to do or how to han­dle a cry­ing in­fant. It’s trau­ma­tiz­ing, you never re­cover from it, and no one pre­pares you. That’s why prod­ucts that are meant to help ba­bies sleep sell so well: ev­ery­one is look­ing to solve this gi­ant ques­tion. There’s an idea in Western so­ci­ety that sleep­less­ness in ba­bies is a prob­lem that needs fix­ing, but the rea­son ba­bies don’t sleep is be­cause they’re ba­bies.” David Sax’s lat­est book, The Re­venge of Ana­log, was pub­lished in 2016.
