The teacher at a new mom's class recommended this book and it is a lifesaver.

Great book, easy reading straight to the point without all the extra stuff that makes you lose interest in what you are reading.

This is a wonderful resource for parents who want to work out bedtime issues in a way that is consistent with their own values and needs. Rather than pushing a single approach, Ms. Huntley guides parents to think about options and to choose a bedtime strategy that fits for their family and for their baby. Out of all of the current resources for families regarding infant sleep issues, this is the one that I recommend most highly!

What I lked best about this book was that, no matter what your "philosophy" or special situation, it's got supportive, helpful advice to get you past the immediate problem. Even "living with it" is offered as a constructive decision rather than as a failure, a surrender. It's so user-friendly and realistic. I've recommended it to other parents of special-needs kids, even though it isn't specifically directed at us, because it's flexible enough to fit our lives, too.

By 4 months I expected my baby to be sleeping more than 2 hours at a stretch, but that was not happening. It was becoming obvious that all three of us needed more sleep. The teacher at a new mom's class recommended this book and it is a lifesaver. My husband and I agreed that we did not want to
"Just let him cry it out" but we also agreed that we did not want a permanent family bed. While we did not mind bringing our son into bed with us during the night we wanted him to nap and start out the night sleeping in his crib, hopefully for more than two hours. This book offers several choices to sleep training and does not make you feel like a bad parent if you modify a method to fit your needs. By the fifth night of following one of the methods our son was putting himself to sleep for 4-6 hours for the first time at night, in his crib. And all this with limited crying on all our parts!! He even is beginning to put himself to sleep for naps in his crib too. Both my husband and I feel we have seen a vast improvement in a very short period of time. It's hard to believe, but it really does work. IF YOU ARE A TIRED PARENT, BUY THIS BOOK!!!!!

Format: Paperback
I am a developmental psychologist and I teach a workshop on "Bedtime Challenges" at a university child development center. This is my number one reccomended book in that class. Too many authors of child-rearing books on a variety of topics urge a one-size-fits-all approach. The value in this book is the realization that both children and parents are different. They have different temperaments, needs, family values, etc. that have to be considered in developing a sleep strategy. I agree with the previous reviewer who said you might look for more depth in another book, but AFTER you review the options in this one. And truth be told, many parents will not need that. My one complaint is that the book (like so many) gives somewhat short shrift to the sleep problems of toddlers. Once children are in a real bed, EVERYTHING changes. Good luck to anyone who buys this book. Sleep problems are the most common, frustrating and perhaps the most difficult to address behavior problem in typically developing kids. But relief always comes eventually.... eventually they just grow up ;)

Format: Paperback
It is short and doesn't give in-depth information of specific problems...But...it is a very good starting place. If you are not sure where to go and what styles of "sleep training" you are wanting to try. It also lists other books to look into for more in-depth information on the specific issues covered. I also liked the simple but informative questionnaires that help you see what exactly is wrong, what you may be doing wrong, and where to begin.

This is a really great book. I purchased it to understand better about how to help my 6 mo old sleep through the night. I learned more about sleep patterns and what to expect or not expect from different kids at different ages which was extremely helpful. I like how the author gives different perspectives on the main approaches to improving healthy sleep habits and gave tools for parents to systematically track whichever approach they try. I also work with families that have children with challenging behaviors and sleep issues is often a hot topic so I am able to use this book as a reference for those families who need help.
