Dubief's book is as no-nonsense yet funny and compassionate as the blog that led to it. It's the most thorough book on baby sleep out there that relies heavily on the evidence, doesn't force advice on parents or patronize them, and, above all, doesn't pile on the guilt. Dubief speaks with an authority borne of experience and relying heavily on the most current scientific research -- without the bias of cherrypicking studies found in so many other baby sleep books. With super-short, digestible sections and lists galore, the book is specially formatted for the reduced cognitive abilities of the most sleep-deprived zombie-parents. And since almost no new parent can read a book cover-to-cover, a quick guide even suggests what to read first based on the reader's situation. Dubief's anecdotes reassure parents that they're not alone but that hope exists for a (quasi-)normal life again. Her upbeat, understanding tone never speaks over parents' heads or down to them. In short, she gets it. And for that, every reader will be grateful. -- Tara Haelle, coauthor of The Informed Parent: A Science-Based Resource for Your Child's First Four Years
In the pages of this book, Alexis Dubief becomes the friend that we all wish we had to guide us through the mysterious world of infant sleep. Her advice is grounded in science and bolstered by her experience working with many families, but it s also practical and empathetic, and best of all, FUNNY. She s created an indispensable guide that is a pleasure to read, even or especially for sleep-deprived parents. --Alice Callahan, PhD, author of The Science of Mom
This is a book I will recommend to every parent I work with. Precious Little Sleep captures Alexis s common sense approach to sleep, along with her delicious sense of humor, compassion and straight talk to help any parent who is looking to begin their parenting journey with a plan for supporting their child s healthy sleeping habits and for parents already in the soup when it comes to baby and sleep. It is a book long overdue and is sure to bring comfort, to parents longing for answers and solutions concerning kids and sleep. --Vicki Hoefle, author of Duct Tape Parenting
If you have a baby, you need to laugh and you need to sleep. Maybe in that order. Precious Little Sleep gives you seriously large doses of both. Alexis Dubief's hilarious, no-nonsense approach to baby sleep pretty much saved my life. --Tracy Cutchlow, author of Zero to Five: 70 Essential Parenting Tips Based on Science
About the Author
Alexis Dubief gave birth to her first child in 2006 and quickly realized that sleep – or a lack thereof – was suddenly the bane of her existence. Yet no book, website, or community seemed to have ready answers. Figuring that “this shouldn’t be so hard,” she spent the next five years researching and analyzing infant and child sleep. Combining scientific evidence with insights gleaned from working with thousands of families, she founded the Precious Little Sleep blog/podcast in 2011. In just a few short years, this passion project meant to demystify baby sleep blossomed into a popular online destination for sleep-starved parents from all over the world, garnering millions of hits annually and inspiring a loyal following. Dubief holds a Master of Finance and an MBA from the University of Colorado. A trail runner and Spartan racer, she writes and rabble rouses near Burlington, VT, with her husband and their two boys who are growing up faster than she would like.
