I found this book very encouraging and informative.
L. Watson
I suspect that the authors got a bit too caught up in their conclusion about infant psychological development to actually try it.
Christine
This book is a great addendum to any book on sleep.

I loved this book. I held it in my hands. I read it outloud. I almost learned it by heart. I ordered it for my kindle. I recommend it to all the new mothers, before their baby starts having sleep problems. Most of the sleep training solutions don't take the time to explore how the baby thinks or feels or what he experiences. You have to read it so you can understand better what you are dealing with. Timing is important!

What I appreciate about this book is that 1) It's a quick read for parents, it has lots of charts to refer to, and it's organized for quick reference; 2) It provides an overview of the most popular ideas for teaching babies to sleep, and it does so within a few pages (I wish I would have found this resource before devoting so much time reading different books on this subject); and 3) It provides a summary of the different stages babies go through and how they can affect their sleep.

This book doesn't advocate any one way to teach your baby to sleep; it provides information to know when your efforts will be more successful or unsuccessful. It helps you understand your baby.

I personally lean toward Elizabeth Pantley's No Cry Sleep Solution, and I've referred to this book repeatedly as my baby's sleep habits have changed. My baby would sleep great for three months and then suddenly things would change. Whenever I became bewildered, I referred to the book for a refresher on what my baby was going through developmentally. Sure enough, it described her to a T, and gave me hope that things would change, and sure enough they did, per the book's description. I found this book very encouraging and informative.

Format: Paperback
I had high hopes for this book, as it came recommended on a blog site I really respect. But I never managed to finish it - although I tried multiple times. The organization of the book is so confusing and the conclusions - contrary to the statements on the cover - so unscientific, that I just couldn't make myself keep reading.

Positives:
Interesting, if rather simplistic, overview of infant and toddler psychological development. Maybe I'll use the first chapter as a reference book in the future.

Negatives;
Poorly organized. Extremely limited number of chapters and topics appear to blend into one another. Makes for confusing reading.

Conclusions on appropriate times for sleep training are only very lightly based on science. No studies are mentioned, simply the authors' assumption that in a period of significant development, sleep training is a bad idea. This conclusion appears based on their feelings and beliefs about child raising. For example, technically, their ideas show that ages 2.5-4 months is a good time. Except that after making that statement, they spend the rest of section telling why you probably wouldn't want to anyway, with helpful statements like, 'You've lasted this long, you can last a little longer.' (Pg. 140) Reading the chapter through, it appears the only age group in which the authors don't see anything overwhelmingly negative about sleep training is 3 years!

Although they describe the different types of sleep training, when they discuss the pros and cons at the different ages, they default back to CIO.

We successfully sleep-trained our daughter at 4 weeks without anything like CIO. At this age, gentle solutions like nap- and bedtime rituals and light schedules really work wonders.

The author has a PhD and it comes across in the style of the book. Nonetheless this is a guided tour through the development stages of babies' brains, with a particular focus on when is the best time to do sleep training. As an example, the months when your little one is very "clingy" and suffering from "separation anxiety" is a really bad time for sleep training.
Highly recommended both for sleep training and as a general introduction to infant development.

The sleep info is very helpful and I liked that it summarizes the different sleep training approaches. I have used the info for so much more than sleep though. It helped figure out when to start with potty training, when to ditch the pacifier, and most recently what to expect developmentally and emotionally from my three year old when new baby arrived.

I have a 4 month old. After reading this book we know when to start the training process. This book makes so much sense with information that is backed by research and studies. I'm excited to see this work to help our baby sleep...and me!

I like this book because it tells you what stages babies go through and when is an appropriate time to start letting them sleep alone. I don't like this book because it is hard to find the time to read it.
