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 is a terrible book. It bills itself as the "least cry solution" and seems like it is a gentle approach to encouraging your child to settle herself to sleep. It is not. It advocates a controlled crying approach where you let your child cry (with regular check-ins) until she falls asleep. Philosophically, I don't have a problem with this approach if it works for your family. What I do object to is the fear-mongering in this book. It says that continuing a no-cry approach which hasn't worked yet "crosses the line from temporary frustration to unnecessary, intermittent neglect". They also say that failing to leave your baby to figure out sleep on her own is akin to completing her math homework. This manipulative clap-trap prays on parental anxiety. I know I fell victim to it as did many of my friends.

Of course, this approach did not work for our family. My daughter would cry for over two and a half hours before she collapsed in exhaustion. During the day our daughter cried hysterically every time my husband or I left the room, even if the other parent was still present. She also cried hysterically every time we tried to lay her down. Diaper changes were impossible. Our daughter didn't learn to settle herself to sleep. She learned to fear being alone and lying down. She was miserable and clingy. It took several days after we stopped this program for her to return to her sweet, smiley, self. I am embarrassed that we continued on with the program for several days and nights even though we knew it was causing everyone in our family terrible discomfort. We stuck with it because we were susceptible to the guilt laid out in this book. We wanted the best thing for our child, even if it was hard. Our friends had similar experiences.
