The book is easy to follow and has realistic ways of sorting problems out. Nothing is too far fetched or difficult to follow and you don't leave your child crying for hours!! This book is a must have for any parent who needs straightforward advice on helping your child to sleep.
We have gone from a child who was shy and had no confidence due to overtiredness to a bright and confident 4 year old who now goes to sleep at a decent time and wakes up 11 hours later rather than at 5.00 am with 3 or 4 wake up times in the night.
Excellent, Excellent, Excellent.
To be fair to the book, I did not read it cover to cover, and I an sure it does offer much needed support to many parents (as per the many positive reviews) - I just did not find it helpful. This may be because I have never been able to leave either of my babies to cry as per the Ferber technique, and was looking for a less upsetting solution for me and my babies. I have just re-read the other reviews of the book, and can't help but feel that I have missed something, but I don't think so.

The problem with our daughter not sleeping well has been pretty specific and we adapted the advice provided in the book to match it. She potty trained at night very quickly, as soon as she turned 3. As a result, she started waking at night and would ask to be taken to the loo. Over time the wakings became more frequent and included all sorts of random requests about rearranging her duvet, giving her more water etc. She also started having night terrors on occasion.
My husband and I were at loss as to what to do. After we read the book, we realised we have been pretty inconsistent in responding to our daughter's night calls. In a way we have indadvertedly conditioned her to expect our attention every time she stirred at night. In order to help her to sleep better, we decided to introduce the sleep fairy (as advised in the book), which would bring her a little present every night she improved on one thing we asked her to. To start with, we asked our daughter to come out of her room if she needed us, as we waited for her outside the door, instead of going in her room.Read more ›
