I do like the book; it just wasn't what he needed at that time. I do think it could be useful if he has issues when he's a bit older or possibly for a sibling, so I'm hanging on to it. If I use the technique more fully in the future, I'll update the review.
I just wanted to add that it is now almost a year later it is still working!! My son will be 3 at the beginning of July. He was never a good sleeper but now he can fall sleep on his own without us in the room! We have a bedtime routine of bath, read 3 stories (short board books), say a prayer, give hugs and kisses and then he climbs into bed and we play the floppy game with the cd. After the game ends, my husband and I leave the room and he listens to a story on the cd and falls asleep. My son is very happy and full of energy all the time so at bedtime he is still laughing and talking and jumping around when he gets into bed. But the floppy game relaxes him enough to start yawning and by the end of the story he's usually asleep. If not, and he calls us back, one of us will talk to him and he usually asks to hear the story again. If he hears the story a second time he is always asleep afterwards. We use it at nap time and bedtime. If he complains and says he doesn't want to go to bed or nap we just say Sorry but it's time for the floppy game and then start the CD right up. If he doesn't get quite right away we tell him he as to be quiet and listen to the lady so we will know what to do. He sleeps very well and even puts himself back to sleep on his own. Very rarely (maybe once every couple of months) he isn't able to go back to sleep on his own and calls us back to his room. All we have to do is talk to him a little and start the story for him and he's right back to sleep. This even worked once after a really bad dream. He woke screaming, cried in my arms for a couple of minutes. After we got him calmed and consoled, I asked if he wanted to lay down and hear the story again and he said yes and went right off to sleep. This book is a life saver for us and we will use it on our second son when he is old enough. I love the floppy game and tell parents about it all the time!
We have talked to our daughters pediatrician (my daughter is 6) and she now takes 3mg on Melatonin before bed time, some people do not produce enough, apparently my daughter is one of those people. She now falls asleep beautifully, and Melatonin is a vitamin, all natural so i feel good about giving this to my daughter, and not a drug. Good luck to all parents with kids with sleep issues, for the first time in 6 years my daughter is going to bed like an angle.
I also grew weary of the self aggrandizing. It was a 320-page InfoMercial on how wonderful and succesful it was. <groan>
This is a 'Tell Me What To Think' book, where everything is spoon fed, and everything is portrayed as being far simpler than it could possibly be in reality
Anybody want my copy... cheap?
