This book gave me a very easy, supportive, step by step guide to helping me get my baby to sleep.
I highly recommend this book - being the skeptic that I was - I have to say it really just need to follow exactly what the book says and it will work!!!
W. Clyman
She helped guide me, day by day, though the timing of the naps in order to get the best results, and it helped me feel much more confident though the process.

My 9-month-old daughter had never slept more than 4 hours at a time before we read this book. She would wake up several times a night, sometimes every hour! We tried other methods, but they didn't work. Finally, we decided to try a new method, and after pouring over every book in the parenting section of the bookstore, I decided that this one seemed like the one for me. I liked how the authors were very sensitive to parents who, like myself, were resistant to letting babies cry. We were prepared for the worst, and figured that we would have a terrible week ahead of us, maybe longer. The first night, she fell asleep after 30 minutes and only woke up once during the night. The second night, it took her 17 minutes and she never woke up. Last night (the third night), she fell asleep after 7 minutes and slept for 12 hours straight! We were amazed, and refreshed, since we'd gotten the first full-night of sleep that we've had in 9 months! It also works wonders for naps. We are now like a new family, with a happy, rested baby, and parents who are not exhausted all of the time. By the way, I have never written a review of anything before, so for me to be writing this is a REALLY big deal! Try this if you are a desperate parent, it really does work, and FAST! If it works for our baby, it will work for yours.

*** Note: After posting my review, I noticed that several new reviewers refer to this method as "lazy parenting", and seem to be of the opinion that this method is the worst thing for your baby. This may be true for them, but I just have to respond by saying that my baby is much happier now that we have been doing this method for a week- when I put her down at night, she is smiling, and does not cry at all, but just rolls over and goes to sleep for 12 hours.

I have literally read what seems to be every "baby sleep" book on the market. I was at my wits end as to how to get my 7 month old (20 lbs) baby to sleep through the night. I knew she could do it, but I didn't know how to do it.

We tried to let her cry it out, since it seemed like everyone I talked to had done it. But after a few days and hours of crying, I knew it wasn't working. And it was hard on everyone. Then came this book. After I read it I knew it was for us.

Our 7 month old woke up 2x per night for 8-9oz of milk each feeding. She never woke up for 1-2oz or just to be cuddled. She ate 1/2 of her daily milk intake between the hours of 9pm and 7am. So, I felt like CIO was starving her. This book helps you to wean your baby off of their feedings. We started with the weaning on the first night, decreasing her normal bottle size by 1 oz. One night she cried (whimpered) for 45 minutes. Then went back to sleep. Another night (the night that the 2nd feeding was dropped to 0 oz), she whined off and on for 3 hours. That was the only hard night that we had, thankfully. She wasn't hungry, but was so used to waking up for food that I think she got mad that things were changing. Each night we decreased her food by 1 oz per bottle. And during the day she miraculously ate a little bit more each day. I couldn't believe it. We tried to "pump her full of food" during the day before, but she wouldn't eat!

Now, 1 week later, we are all sleeping peacefully. For the past 3 nights, she has slept 12 hours without waking up once. She eats ALL of her needed milk during the day. Even writing this, I can't believe that it actually worked. She wakes up happy, eats well, and we are all better rested. I'm so glad that I chose this method.

This book is an easy, quick read and the program works. I've read several other baby sleep books, both cry and no-cry, and I think this book offers the simplest plan to follow with the least crying possible. It also provides lots of advice for special situations (teething, travel, illness, etc...) If you'd like to hear about my results, keep reading.

First, a little about my baby. Our son slept in a co-sleeper until he outgrew it at eight weeks. We moved him to a crib and he routinely slept from 6:30pm to 1am when he woke for a feeding. He would then sleep until four or five am when I would take him into our bed for another feeding a few more hours sleep. When he got to about three and a half months old he started waking every hour or two, every night. At first I thought it was sleep regression and I hoped it would pass. It didn't, and by the time he was four months old, I was sleeping with my son every night and taking every nap with him during the day. This went on for three and a half months, until we started sleep training last weekend.

Second, a little about me. I was DETERMINED not to let my baby cry. I'm an admirer of Dr. Sears and mostly agree with the fundamentals of attachment parenting. I did read Elizabeth Pantley's book and Tracy Hogg's book. I did try both their methods, but my son seemed confused and frustrated by their methods. I had accepted the possibility that I would have to sleep with my baby until he learned to sleep on his own, however long that would take. Then one night I had a realization, my son was crying EVERY night, multiple times per night. The few hours he would sleep in his crib, he would cry just about every hour.
