I went to the library and took out at least seven books about how to get my baby to sleep through the night, and this is by far the best book even though it is written by a layperson...if you take it with a grain of salt. I gave it four stars because of a few but important points that new mothers need to know about before following her plan which the author does not take into account. I also can't help but snort at " not impressed " buyers/readers who only give this book one star. Obviously the person giving this book one star has not read all the other books out there and then actually tried to follow the long and tedious advices found withing hundreds and hundreds of pages...

The Pros of this book:
1. It asks parents to put their relationship with their spouse/sanity/own need first. Then the babies. This is how a healthy child should be raised. Suzan stresses this point, and yes, it might offend parents that center their whole life around their child... so be forewarned.

2. It really is a short read, and is to the point. A sleep deprived mom who can't even remember where her left shoe is will be able to read this in one sitting

3. It outlines a schedule. It also teaches the parent how to get the baby on this or any other schedule that the parent decides to follow.

4. It works! I however feed my baby every 2-3 hours during the day, from 7 am to 7 pm only. The author should have mentioned this adjustment-if needed- and she does not.

Why schedule feeding and this book worked for me: My baby was in the 99th percentile for size when he was born and he was so hungry that i was feeding him every hour ( from start to start of the next feeding) ,and each feeding lasted 45 min, meaning that I had 15 minutes off every hour 24 hours a day.

Don't worry so much about pumping and measuring. This can work if you're breastfeeding. Trust your baby to tell you when they're full and when they're hungry. The important part is that you start to stretch out the time between feeding to give your child enough time to get hungry and eat a full meal.

I have used this book with all 3 of my children. Two were breastfed, and one was adopted and formula fed. I absolutely love how short it is. As a busy mom it is difficult to find time to sit down to read and digest a 250 page book with size 10 font. I can read through this in a day and set up a plan for my training. We used this with our first child when he was 9 months old. He was waking up multiple time every night and I was exhausted. It was a bit more difficult because he was older and stronger willed, but we were able to get him sleeping 12 hours a night and with a 2 hour nap. He was completely happy and content going to bed, it was absolutely beautiful. It was amazing to get sleep again, so I could be the best mom possible. My second child was adopted and we used bottles and formula. He did well with the steps and was sleeping 12 hours by 12 weeks. He is 2 1/2 and continues to sleep well. We have now used it with our 3rd. I breastfeed and decided not to follow the advice in the book and pump and bottle feed during training. She had a difficult time nursing when she was born and I didn't want to confuse her for this long stretch. I started on the 1st step, getting her to eat every 4 hours. She did very well stretching from 3 hours to 4, and to my surprise she automatically started eliminating her night feedings at 8 weeks old. She has been sleeping through the night for a couple of weeks now. I have to start working on the next step, but the book is continuing it work like a charm with her. Overall, I have been extremely happy with this book and it's suggestions. It doesn't condone crying it out, but it doesn't suggest that you go hush the baby at every peep. It is very practical and doable. I am not a person who does well without sleep, and this book has blessed my life tremendously.Read more ›

My daughter never slept. No naps. Tough nights. She was a miserable infant. I read many sleep books with minimal success...until this one. I started right at 3 months and within 10 days my baby was sleeping 12 hours. Her days were better, her nights were silent and now at a 1 1/2 years she is the best sleeper I've ever seen. My second baby just turned 3 months yesterday and slept 12 hours last night without a peep. This book is brilliant. Two things: 1) you have to have the discipline to follow through, or don't bother. 2) I don't recommend doing this with breastfeeding. I tried, and it didn't work at all. As soon as I switched to formula, it worked like a charm.

We started putting the theories in this book into practice when my son was twelve weeks old. It actually made things worse for us. Here's how: We began scheduling out my son's daytime feedings and pushing him to every four hours as the book suggests. Now he no longer goes to sleep when needed because he's hungry and uncomfortable. When feeding time comes he nurses just long enough to get comfortable (not full) and he totally crashses. He then sleeps for about an hour, wakes up and realizes he's hungry and is miserable. We put him off until time to eat and again he takes in just enough to get comfortable and again crashes. This continues all night and all day.

Before we started following the book my son was up two to three times per night and was a very happy, easy going baby who was able to put himself to sleep when laid down drowsy, yet awake. Now he's up four to five times per night and is in a perpetual overtired, cranky state, and is totally dependent on me and nursing to go to sleep. I'm going back to feeding on demand so we can again put him to bed while drowsy, but awake and he can learn again to put himself to sleep without depending on me.

The author's theories seem sound when you read this book, but when put into practice for us they've caused total chaos and unrest. Not recommended.

P.S. - My son is now 4 months and 3 weeks old and is sleeping from 7 pm until 7 a.m. every night, without forcing his feedings to every four hours as this book suggests is a necessity. This has come about by letting him feed on demand (about every three hours) and watching for his sleep signals to lay him down when he's awake, yet drowsy. He's learned to put himself to sleep and now when he wakes up at night he just "talks" himself back to sleep within just a few minutes - no tears, and no stress. This was a much better option for us and I honestly feel this book did nothing but delay his ability to sleep through the night.
