My husband found this book and bought it. I'd also seen it but wasn't impressed with reviews. Anyway, I started reading through it and became greatly encouraged by the authors assessments and advice regarding sleep around my baby's age (10 months at the time). I felt validated in my bed sharing philosophy and also felt like it helped to normalize what we were going through. A lot of websites that want you to buy (literally) into sleep training will pathologize your child's sleep when it isn't pathological! Sure enough, after employing some gentle sleep recommendations from this book, and trusting our mama/papa instincts, we saw results. For us, it was key to cut the night nursing as it was getting out of hand (3-4 times a night at 10 months!). I mean, I wanted to be one of these breastfeeding all night and day mamas but I couldn't function at my new job on the sleep I was getting. Anyway if you need some encouragement and some gentle suggestions then this book is for you. After reading I felt like I knew what to do the whole time and I was now able to listen to those instincts more effectively.
We implemented a lot of new skills and routines which helped us get our baby to bed at an earlier time, but he continued waking 5-10 + times per night. I also found it difficult to write out the sleep plan as she leaves a lot of blanks expecting you to fill them in. The whole point of getting the book was so that I could have someone spell it out for me step by step, yet she expects you to fill in all the blanks in the sleep plan...
We definitely hit a plateau, we have gotten baby’s sleep on more of a routine schedule, we also managed to get him to sleep in the crib more(not without tears and a lot of picking up and putting back down over and over again) but he does not sleep much more in the end, nor does he wake any less than before. He also still wakes up crying every time he wakes up, and still can not fall asleep on his own.
I’m disappointed, I so wanted this to work, but after 2 months of trying, we need to move on to something else.
The must have been thinking if another book, cause this ain't cry it out.
It is also a very easy-to-read book. I was over half way through it before I knew it and I didn't expect to find time to read without falling asleep. I am totally in love with this book.
After just the first few chapters, I started implimenting a routine and a regular naptime based on his cues and it was almost instant that my 10 1/2 month old son started going to sleep without a fight. Now we are working on sleeping for longer stretches. The methods in this book are so stress free! I know we will make our goals with the help of the No-Cry Sleep solutions.
