Insert: The Sleep Lady Shuffle.
First of all, the book is an easy, quick read. I love that she has it broken down by age, so you don’t have to read the entire book. You can just flip to the sections that pertain to you. Exhausted moms struggling with comprehension, much less finding the time to read, this is for you! She tells you exactly what to do, how to do it, and any questions I had, I found in the book.
Second, the Shuffle was super effective super quick for us. Honestly, the first night was horrible (as the Sleep Lady warns you). My son cried like I had never heard him cry before. BUT! I was able to sit right next to him, pick him up to comfort him, talk to him and pat him if he needed it. The second night was better. The third night he was down in 15 minutes with no crying, just fussing. And he woke up—-wait for it—-ONCE!!!!! Never done that in his life. One wake up = one happy momma. Granted, night four he learned how to stand and cruise around in his crib, so that made things a bit more difficult. But to this day, two months after training, he wakes up twice a night most nights, once on really good nights. And he probably could go through the night with just one wakening, but I’m satisfied and haven’t pushed him to drop the second feeding. 😊
Ladies, and gentlemen if you’re reading this, this is well worth the money and time and effort. Push through the hard parts, be consistent, reclaim your nights and wake up to a happier baby and a happier you!
The book features chapters with sleep tips separated by the age of the child you are working with. While we ended up using "timed checks" as opposed to the "sleep lady shuffle," (our son wouldn't fall asleep if we were in the room), this book gave us the encouragement to keep going. We only had one rough night. Life since sleep coaching has been a dream!
Now here's the deal- the book is just okay. Lots of details, editing is only so-so, nice to have on hand to flip through for a quick question... but really the meat of the sleep lady's plan can be found for free online and through her amazing YouTube Q+A videos. If you are new to sleep lady, I recommend watching the videos first to see if this is your style, then purchasing the book of you have further questions.
Book: 3 stars
Method: 5 stars
Also, with any sleep training method you end up having to retrain any time something happens in the child's life, like a vacation or a move or a change of schools, etc. This is not a permanent solution, do not expect miracles.
Written in a very simple, easy to understand way.

The basic problem in night wakening is that you can't always wait for an hour or two and do so for 4-6 nights... or even 14... We sleep in same room with child and this affects both parents and it isn't best method in small apartments. But I hope it will be worth of trying.
