"Babies' secure attachment to their parents is the foundation of lifelong health. And responsive care is what leads to a secure attachment. Unfortunately, various "experts" continue to tell parents to not respond to their babies, especially at night. The cry-it-out method is highly stressful for parents and babies, potentially harms their relationship and the security of the attachment, and is completely unnecessary.
When parents ask about sleep training, I'm happy that I can recommend an alternative: a book that allows everyone to get the sleep they need without resorting to cry-it-out. Thank you, Elizabeth Pantley, for The No-Cry Sleep Solution for Newborns. It's just what we need."

If you feel strongly, as I do, that human newborns should betreated gently, their needs respected, and their parents supported, you willfind much to like in this book. Newborn infant sleep is hugely variable inpatterning and duration, while sleep patterns develop differently for eachbaby. In this book you will find helpful strategies for supporting your baby'snatural sleep behaviour and coping with the sleeplessness that goes with theterritory of having a new baby.
This book will be a key resource for parents of new babies, andfor those who seek to support them."

"As a general pediatrician in practice for 35 years, I found"The No-Cry Sleep Solution for Newborns" a very welcome addition to the "No-CrySolution" series. Ever since I discovered her first book, Pantley's advice hasbeen my "go-to" for parents who struggle with sleep, discipline and eatingissues.
With her latest book, Ms. Pantley provides parents ofnewborns with a game plan to establishing healthy routines to try to preventproblems. She avoids the dramatic and traumatic changes to routines that oftenkeep parents from trying to solve problems and in fact, make things worse. The bonus is that, this advice might prevent anumber of other issues. The results are that you have happier, more flexibleinfants and, yes, happier, calmer parents who can actually enjoy their newbabies.
I am seriously thinking about providing this book to all newparents."
