The best book I've ever bought. We were not going to put our son on a routine however on demand feeding was causing our 2 month old son to wake every 2hrs at night and sleep 4hr during the day. At 5 months he was sleeping 7pm to 7am with the dream feed and a few weeks later we dropped the dream feed and now at nearly 8 months he sleeps 7pm to 7am without any trouble at all every single night. He sends himself to sleep and there is no procedure at bedtime to get him to sleep. It's bottle and place in cot and leave to his own devices, we don't hear or see him again till 7am. A fantastic book, Jo really does know what she is talking about and the additions to it of what issues real parents have had and how Jo would solve them are great.

I Only found this book when my daughter was 10 weeks old, before the book I fed on demand and had no routine in place. I had a very unsettled baby who would not sleep unless she was on me. She cryed alot during the day and night. Bed time was awful and it would take forever to get her to sleep, there was alway tears along the way.

I did not believe in routine and teaching babys to sleep until I got to the point where I could no longer go on and something had to give. Thats when I come across Jo Tantums book and I thought, I'll give anything a go. IO was not really expecting it to do what she claims.

Once I started with her book I implemented her routine and It was amazing!
My baby changed over night. (literally) She become much more settled, happier and did not cry even a third of the amount she did before. I could now take her out and about with out worrying she could kick off at any time and I would have to leave.

I implemented the sleep advise (to get baby to bed with out fuss) and I have to be honest the first night it took 2 hours with lots of tears from both sides, it was grueling and the hardest part of the routine. The second night it took 45 minuets. The third night it took 10 minuets. The fourth night I bathed, fed and put baby in her cot and she went off to sleep no problem, no fuss, no crying, not even getting her to sleep on me first, just straight in to the cot and off to sleep she went.

After that my baby went from waking every 3 hour to waking every 4/5 hour.
It has gradually got longer and longer. My baby is now 6 month and sleeps 7am to 7pm some time until 8am if im lucky. Jo Tantum does claim to get the babys sleep 7am to 7pm before six month, but My baby is a small baby and I think thats whys it has taken a bit longer.

Format: Paperback
I read this excellent book when I was pregnant with my twins and found its down-to-earth, reassuring tone and approach very empowering. It is full of very useful advice. It made me feel that I would be able to cope when they arrived, and I did (without that armies of help that everyone assumes you need with twins). The other reviewers are right: it does work. My husband and I have never really suffered from the terrible sleep deprivation that everyone warned us about, thanks to the fact that early on we implemented its advice and our babies soon learned to fall asleep by themselves, which meant we had an acceptable stretch of sleep at night that got longer and longer as time went by. We've never had to wait for things to 'fall into place', as is sometimes the case with babies, as we were following a plan of action that would lead (we hoped) to their sleeping through the night. They now sleep happily from 7pm to 7am!

This book was recommended by friends.
You're so used to doing whatever it takes to get the little one to calm down but if you follow the guidelines, I mean really follow and adapt it, you'll soon be relieved at how much time you have back to yourself again.
