This is a great comprehensive book with solutions to a whole host of sleep problems for infants & children all ages. At 6 months we tried the progressive waiting approach outlined in this book to break my baby's association with falling asleep in our arms. The progressive waiting approach famously dubbed
cry it out' suggests you leave your baby to cry for progressively longer periods starting at 3min working up to 20min. If like us you know your child is only waking because they don't know how to fall asleep without you then this is a effective way to solve this problem. This was the solution for us and she went to sleeping through on the second night & it sorting out her naps (taking 1.5-2hr naps instead of 30-45min) by the 3rd day. Our experience is below if you're interested
Our baby used to cry in our arms as we walked around for 20min to get her to sleep then we would wait another 20min for her to enter into a deep sleep & put her down. This worked quite well until around 5months when after an initial 4hr stretch she would wake within an hr of putting her down & this would go on all night! In hindsight i know that in between sleep cycles she would see the environment in which she fallen asleep had changed & this would wake her fully. She would then cry because she was tired & didn't know how to fall back to sleep without us. (Like teaching a child how to ride a bike without stabilisers you have to just let go & show them they can do it without you.) We first tried some 'no cry' alternatives shh pat /rocking until almost asleep etc our presence seemed to only aggravate /stimulate her & hinder sleep. Then reluctantly we tried this & now everyone is better off.The longest she cried was 30min.

It took 3 days, but it worked!!! But 5 days later he has regressed a bit so i am having to implement it again. The reason i havent given it 5star is because this is a very lengthy book. It can be hard to get the info you want, and i dont have the time to read the whole book. So i do feel that there are gaps in my knowledge and could be missing something i should be doing.

I was very pessimistic about whether Dr Ferber's sleep training would work after reading many reviews which were for and against his recommendations. However I decided to give it a go. My daughter needed to be cuddled to sleep every night by me and would not let her Dad put her to bed. She was starting to be more and more demanding so something needed to change. We decided to start on a Friday night and I prepared myself for the worst. I put my daughter in her cot and she started screaming, I then did the first check at 3 mins which made her scream more, 2 mins later she was sick! We cleaned it all up then started all overe again. This time the crying didn't seem so bad and 35 mins later she was fast asleep! I felt like the cruelest mother letting her cry and making her sick but wanted to see it through. She slept through the night and then next morning gave me plenty of cuddles and smiles. On the 2nd night she cried as I put her in the cot again but 2 mins later was fast asleep. On the 3rd night there were no tears at all and she let me put her in the cot without a fight, rolled over and went to sleep! I tried this on her day time nap too on the 3rd day and she let me leave her in her cot to go to sleep by herself. AMAZING! This truely did work. Although I felt awful on the first night it didn't take long at all for her to re-learn how to go to sleep by herself. Give Dr Ferber's sleep training a go if you think it will help!

This method actually works. And it's not leaving a child to cry incessantly. The controlled crying intervals start off as little as 1 minute. You just have to be consistent, which we haven't always been! Our now 10 month old daughter previously used to have great trouble resettling herself to sleep. Despite us not being consistent in using the method, she's been sleeping much better after we started using this method. The book also contains lots of case studies of similar situations so you don't feel like you're the only one suffering and that there's a way out!

Wish I'd bought this book sooner! Purchased when baby was 8 months old and never slept well. Half of what I read I had unfortunately had to figure out the hard way for myself so I knew that part was correct which made it easier for me to believe the other half would be true. After reading the relevant chapters (you don't have to read the whole book all at once) suddenly the sleep problems seemed obvious as did the solutions! Brilliant book, they should give a copy to ever first time parent!!!

It seems to have good ideas and the process is well described. However, I still have to plucked up the courage to implement it.

I listened to all of the horror stories about how cruel controlled crying was and wishing to be an 'attachment parent' and a loving mother who didn't want to cause my baby any unnecessary upset I spent a whole year feeling exhausted, tearful and in fact a terrible mother who wasn't able to settle my own baby for a whole night.

On his first birthday, I realised I could neither physically or mentally spend another year like this and, above all else, my baby needed the sleep he wasn't getting to thrive and develop, so I bought this, downloaded it and steeled myself for feeling wretched.

I was overwhelmingly surprised and very, very pleased to find a book written by someone who wanted to help children achieve the healthy sleeping patterns they need.

I put the techniques into practice that very night and, yes, my heart tugged when my baby started crying but I knew this was best for him; for both of us!

My baby is 22 months old now and has been sleeping through the night from that first week.

I wish I'd bought this book 9 months earlier!
