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
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.

I do wish that the book was a little easier to navigate. I found myself wishing that I had some sort of guide or map to help me jump to different sections. Something that would be based on specific topics of interest, baby's age, or parents' "readiness". But that's my only critique. This book and its associated resources were just what I needed to get the results I wanted. Yay!
My friend (luckily) had already had high praise for the blog Troublesome Tots so I found myself at the Precious Little Sleep website. I devoured it! Alexis's voice was a life raft! I finally felt like I could get the rest I needed, not have to feel like I was a bad mom and teach my son a lifelong valuable skill.
Sleep Training wasn't easy but when it started to work my confidence as a mother bloomed. I had done something right! The ppd voice inside my head that was telling me I couldn't swing this whole motherhood thing drifted away. And we all slept! My son thrived! I started getting better and proudly went on to peach that I had used SLIP and it was the best parenting decision I've ever made.
So thank you Precious Little Sleep family. You saved this mom!
This book is so comprehensive and offers so many tips and tricks and methods for getting your baby to sleep. It's real life advice and goes over literally every question I've ever had about how to get a baby to sleep.
Alexis knows what she's talking about and this book is so easy to read and implement!
