We started with "The Baby Book" by Dr. Sears, then tried, "The No-Cry Sleep Solution" and then "The Secrets of the Baby Whisperer." We were really at our wits' end. The major issue wasn't actually that our baby wasn't sleeping through, but that she was having a really hard time napping and she was crying like crazy every bedtime. We were trying not to let her cry but she was totally inconsolable, screaming right in our arms! We would be driving her in desperation to get her to go to sleep and sometimes she would still scream. It was heartbreaking.

Finally I got really desperate for a solution to my poor baby's anguish and looked online to see whether anyone in the sleep world was actually a PSYCHOLOGIST who specialized in sleep. Lo and behold, Jodi Mindell. She is truly an expert. Long story short, my baby now LOVES her crib. If we forget to put her down when it's time, she looks at us and says "Nigh night." She has no more negative associations with sleeping and she's a GREAT sleeper. 12-hour nights, plus usually 2 90-minute naps during the day at 13 months old. It took about 3 nights for bedtime to work (the longest she cried during that time was 20 minutes, which was already less than she cried when we'd tried to hold her or rock her to sleep!) and about 2 weeks or so for naptimes to get in gear.

The three hallmarks of Mindell's method are:
1. Reliable scheduling. For about a month our naptimes and bedtimes (and waking times) were literally to-the-minute. It worked. It actually even worked for me. I'm pregnant and I was able to set my own internal clock to take an afternoon nap when my baby does!

2. Routine, routine, routine. Bedtime and naptimes in our house now have an exact routine that is the same every single day.

I think I have read every book under the sun from Weisbluth's Healthy Sleep Habits Happy Child (way too militant) to Elizabeth Pantley's No Cry Sleep Solution (way too vague). Nothing really seemed to fit our needs. My daughter has always been a bad sleeper, usually up every 1-2 hours all night long. I consider myself an AP mom, we used to cosleep and breastfeed on demand. None of us were getting enough sleep and we were all miserable. I was very anti cry-it-out until finding this book. Yes, it does mean allowing your child to cry but it also recommends going in every 5 minutes to briefly comfort and reassure your child that she's not been abandonded. We started when she was about 9 months old and within 3 nights, my daughter was happily going to sleep in her crib for her first sleep stretch without so much as a peep. She did, however, still wake up throughout the night. Dr. Mindell says that 80% of kids will start going back to sleep on their own throughout the night within a couple weeks. Unfortunately, my daughter was in the 20% who don't. We would just bring her into bed with us once she woke up. After five months of this, we finally got up the nerve to sleep train for all her night wakings. The first two nights were pretty rough but things have been glorious since. Last night was the fourth night, she only woke up once and easily went back to sleep. I feel like a new woman and my daughter seems like a new kid. We're all much better rested.

Format: Paperback
I loved reading this book. Mindell's approach seemed so sensible! I loved the idea that you only had to let your baby cry ONE time per night, at bedtime (as opposed to every time he woke all night). One time a night didn't seem too awful. And she promised that babies would cry 45 minutes the first night, 1 hour the second and 20 minutes the third.

Well, it's night TEN, and my baby is still crying for an HOUR every night. I have followed her "basic bedtime method" TO THE LETTER, I am totally consistent every night, and I am just about to give up. She has no website, no place where I can go to ask questions or try to get some advice. I'm just adrift out at sea with nothing but the book to refer back to.

I will say again that I love the idea of this book, but it hasn't worked at all for me.

The negative reviews of this book are founded in the readers' errors. Dr. Mindell explains clearly why babies need to be able to put themselves to sleep, and gives the reader choices about how to do it. Nowhere in this book does it say that you have to make your baby cry or that you have to abandon him. You don't. She says that you can stay with your baby and pat him and verbally soothe him in his crib.

Further, she never says that vomiting is fun for kids, and her suggestion about hanging signs is in the paragraph about keeping a sense of humor. It really bothers me to see reviews that are flat-out lies.

Whether or not to let your child cry to sleep is one of the most controversial parenting subjects. I was completely against it until my son, at 7 months, had still not slept through the night in his crib. My husband and I felt completely broken by lack of sleep- it was absolutely debilitating to my family.

I bought the book and took the plunge, and the conclusion I've come to is this: letting my son cry as he learns a very important skill-- the ablility to go to sleep on his own-- is better than all the crying he does added up over a night due simply to night-waking and not being able to go back to sleep. At least this way, he will have a tool at the end of all the strife, instead of just being upset over lack of sleep.

We have done the method for 2 nights now. The first night he cried for 10 minutes. The second, which should be the worst, 37 minutes. We hope tonight will be better. Already he is waking less in the night and has already put himself back to sleep twice.

I hope this helps others who are contemplating buying the book.
