Product Description

Review

A godsend for tired parents everywhere. I highly recommend this book to the parents of infants and young children who have a problem sleeper on their hands (Howard Bennett, MD, author of WAKING UP DRY: A GUIDE TO HELP CHILDREN OVERCOME BEDWETTING)

GOOD NIGHT, SLEEP TIGHT is the first book of its kind to clearly explain why bedtime is such a challenge for so many kids and their parents, and to offer solutions that won't tortue anyone (Maura Rhodes, Senior Editor, PARENTING magazine)

Right after "Boy or girl?" the next question new parents often hear is "How's he sleeping" (after going through Kim West's painless, practical, and easy-to-implement program, they'll be able to honestly answer, "Like a baby"')

Armin Brott, author of EXPECTANT FATHER ('Parents and children alike should welcome this commonsense, family-friendly guide to childhood sleep from birth to age five . . . This book will teach parents to gently start to shape a baby's sleep in infancy, sparing them the months or even years of sl)

Book Description

A commonsense, family-friendly guide to newborn, baby and toddler sleep from birth to five years old from a highly experienced sleep specialist (known to her satisfied clients as The Sleep Lady). A book to help you put baby and toddler sleep problems behind you.

I bought this book because my 14-month-old twins had pretty much never slept through the night and I was reaching the end of my tether. They tended only to wake up once or twice each, but it would take 1-2 hours to get them back to sleep. Also they were no good at settling themselves to sleep, either at night or naptime. One in particular would not go into bed awake, he had to be nursed or rocked to sleep and then snuck into bed. I know that this habit was my fault, but as with most mums (especially of twins) I'd just been doing everything I could in the early months to get them to sleep.
I knew I had to do something, but couldn't bear the idea of letting them scream all night. I tried the No Cry Sleep Solution and found that, while sort of useful, it was a bit vague and didn't really help me that much. Finally I found this book, and it has been a miracle! It's a bit more assertive than the No Cry Sleep Solution, but you are very much involved in the process of the child learning to settle himself and don't just leave him to it as you would with 'cry it out' techniques.
One of the great things about this book is that it explains in a really understanding way why you will probably need to let your child cry a bit. For mothers like me who find it really painful, it encourages you to be brave and close that door, and not go running back in a few seconds later. I loved her analogy of being like the coach who needs to let the team get out on the pitch and play the game themselves, it made me realise that I needed to step back a bit and let them learn to help themselves sleep better.
This isn't specifically recommended by the book, but I decided to start with daytime nap training. I did this because (and I know it goes against all sleep training!

I had read a number of baby books before this but Kim offers useful practical techniques for gentler ways to get baby to sleep. My LO finally slept through about two weeks after implementing Kim's techniques :) It also offer advise for changes that may happen in LOs sleep up to school age but hopefully we won't need that!

I bought this mostly out of desepration, as our 11 month old has never been a good sleeper and we were reaching the end of our tether.

Prior to this I had also read 'The No-Cry Sleep Solution' as I am not a fan of Controlled Crying or leaving a child to 'Cry it Out'. That book also has some good suggestions, but I'd say this one takes a firmer approach, which may or may not work for you. This did mean I had something to compare it to. Neither book is perfect but they both helped me to a degree.

One of the things I noticed is that while there is a small section on 'sleep basics' it doesn't go into that much detail. The other book describes sleep cycles in much more detail. I personally think the more you know, the better equipped you are to tackle a situation.

What is helpful is that the author gives a general grounding in sleep and then refers you to the section of the book relating to your child's age, so you don't have to go through sections that are not relevant to you. She offers her sleep system, a way of getting your baby to fall asleep without needing their sleep crutch (though I would have liked more detail about how long you are supposed to stay in the room). I am currently trying it in a slightly adapted form, and it seems to be working.

She also provides case studies of people she has worked with and how she advised them to tackle their particular problem, often where the child's sleep issue was quite ingrained and complex. A great addition to the book as you may well find yourself familiar with that particular problem.

What the author hasn't offered in enough detail is explanations as to why a child may wake at the same time every night and what to do if they are simply inconsolable.

I was so pleased to have found this book. I had read many different books and tried many approaches, including the cry it out methods (Gina Ford, Ferber etc) and found none of them suited myself or my daughter. I found the crying very distressing (as, no doubt, did she) and she would eventually cry herself out only to wake a few hours later. This almost 3 year old had been waking every night and eventually fell into a routine of sleeping in our bed from whenever it was she woke in the middle of the night. From the first day of trying the book's techniques she has never slept in our bed again. Within 4 weeks of reading the book, I had her sleeping through the night 4 out of 5 nights. It was hard - the effort of settling her properly without giving in - and for a few nights I was more up than down and exhausted in the morning. I never thought I'd be able to do it (I think I just assumed she'd "grow out of it" and eventually just start sleeping through by herself) but this approach really helped me, and it never caused major stress or upset to my daughter. She is really proud of herself!

I found this book a great reference for when my little one was having trouble getting to sleep at night, she had always been a good sleeper but was going through a tough patch and this book helped us to sort it out in a week. The books chapters are in age specific which means you don't have to read the whole book to fine the information you need for your child.
