Format: Paperback
This book is based on the recognition that all children need to sleep long, uninterrupted nights. It is different from all other books about children's sleeping patterns on the market - because Wahlgren starts out by asking why children and babies wake up at night. Her answer is that they fear for their safety. They are not doing it out of spite, or because children should somehow need their sleep less than we adults do. No, they wake up because they suffer from survival anxiety.

Consequently, with Wahlgren's method, once a child is older than 4 months and healthy, it can learn to sleep the whole night in just over a week, if it is calmly reassured. And calmly reassured does not equal consoled nor comforted. It means that a child's cries are to be seen as anxious questions, and answered as such. Accordingly, once the child is properly reassured that someone is looking out for his interests and standing guard for him, he can sleep soundly, go back to sleep by himself should he wake up, go to bed happy and wake up happy in the morning.

This book contains a very concrete, hands-on do-it-yourself guide adapted for children of different ages, as well as a toolbox describing the moves you use to reassure your child that his safety is guaranteed. Furthermore, it contains a question-and-answer section detailing remedies for setbacks that parents sometimes encounter, and numerous stories of happy families where the children's sleeping patterns have been changed completely with the help of the Swedish edition of this book.

So, buy it, read it, apply what it teaches you - and then, sleep tight!

Format: Paperback
If you are thinking of buying a copy of A Good Night's Sleep, I warmly recommend that you do so. It has lifted our family from the depths of despair to the pinnacle of delight.

Day or night, our son had never slept more than 45 minutes at a stretch. He was always tired and whimpering. He clung to us constantly, ate badly and had dark circles under his eyes. When he was eight months old, I stumbled across GNS quite by chance. It lit a fire in my gut. This was just what we had been looking for all these months. I couldn't put it down. How we had ended up in our current predicament became abundantly clear. We were ready to roll, and we got down to business.

To cut a long story short, our son went from waking up 10-20 times a night to sleeping 12 hours at a stretch. He eats like a trooper, explores the world, and is all smiles and laughs. We have a child who enjoys his surroundings and lives life to the max. Finally, I can enjoy being a mother. My son and I wake up rested in the morning with a smile on our lips. Every day is filled with joy, laughter and human interaction. Just how it should be in all families.

The book is written in an accessible style, which makes the message easy to grasp. It is not just an instruction manual that tells you how to get your child to sleep. It also provides you with a deeper understanding of why the techniques work, why children wake up at night, and how you can help your child sleep soundly and securely.

Because the book provides you with an attitude and not just a set of instructions, the right course of action becomes obvious. When you find yourself having to confront unforeseen situations, you know what to do to convey a sense of security to your little baby.

Format: Paperback
I will just copy what another dad says in the book, because it says it all!
"Until he was four months old, Allen slept unusually well at night and we were beginning to think that things were going to stay that way. Of course, that was when the problems started. To cut a long story short, we didn't sleep a whole night for more than four months. He would wake up five to ten times a night. We would feed him, rock him, bring him to our bed, put him back in his own...

We were feeling the strain to say the least. This affected not only us, but also our five-year-old daughter and of course our work. We contacted our local children's clinic, where we spoke to a nurse who was very understanding, but she couldn't help us. We called paediatrics at our local hospital, but they had no advice to give us either. We spoke to a child psychologist, who I'm sure suspected we were not caring for our son properly. No one could help us.

Quite by chance, I wandered onto Anna Wahlgren's homepage when I was surfing and looking for parents who had problems similar to ours. I immediately got the feeling that this was some kind of turning point. I read about the cure and the wolf analogy, and I thought, Good Lord, here is someone who has actually pondered over WHY children wake up at night, not just how you get them to go to sleep.

We bought A Good Night's Sleep a couple of days later, and the more we read, the more convinced we were that this was the common sense advice that we had sought but failed to find from the so-called experts.

Almost two weeks ago, we started the cure. The first night was hard going. But from the second night on, we noticed a huge difference, and on the fourth night, Allen slept continuously from eight in the evening to five in the morning.
