I've never written a review before but feel I have to after reading this book. The concept is very simple - if your baby sleeps well during the day they will sleep well at night. All very well unless you are like me and have a baby that at 5 months just never naps (and then wakes every 2 hours throughout the night). So where the book is helpful is it explains that every 90 mins you have a window of opportunity to get your baby to sleep. If you miss it you have a tired baby who wants to sleep but can't and you need to wait another 90 mins.

Even though you can sum up what you have to do in a page, the rest of the book is just a really interesting read - the stuff about sleep theory and body clocks talks to my inner geek.

Well, I thought I would try it. Day 1 I managed to get my baby to nap around 4 hours during the day by putting him down in anticipation of the 90 min window. Day 1 night he slept for three 4 hours chunks which is good for him...but Day 2 I also managed good naps during the day and last night he slept from 7pm to 4am!!!! So in 2 days we have success! We also haven't had a fussy period in the evenings like we usually do.

Its just a relief to know that it wasn't teething (husband's theory), the need for solids (grandma's theory), that my breastmilk is crap (granny's theory); it was just that the poor mite was knackered!

Thank you Dr Moore!

I just wanted to add my thoughts as this book is definitely in my top 5 baby books. I got it a while ago (my baby is now 5 months old) and tried to implement the strategy and had some success, but reading other books and listening to other peoples advice confused everything and things got out of control!!
My baby is very energetic, intense and alert and was being extremely grumpy and tired sometimes immediately after a nap. He would only nap for 5 mins at a time when I started the program.. it was really frustrating and totally all-consuming.

I have recently gone back to doing this program (which is simply putting your baby down for a nap the best way you know how 90 mins after they have been awake) and have re-confirmed that Yes! my baby does need to go to sleep this soon after being awake, and this will lengthen with age. His temperament has improved dramatically and he is now mostly a smiley happy intense baby!

It does involve totally dedicating your life around ensuring that your baby sleeps when he needs to (its amazing how quickly an hour and a half passes by) and Im finding I just cant go along to baby groups etc, but I have accepted this as often he would just cry when I got there anyway or be the star of the show at the baby class and become a total nightmare as soon as we got home and he realised he was knakkered!!

I would recommend this book to all parents; it is very interesting and science rather than opinion or "experience" based, there is no finger wagging going on and you dont feel like a failure whilst reading it (so many other books have made me feel terrible). It is quick to read, practical and to the point.
Last week my baby had a day where he was just lying in his cot happily at nap time and I realised he could go for longer and indeed he had extended his awake time to 3 hours... so I am seeing a light at the end of the tunnel.
Good luck!!

My little daughter is 3.5 months and although I knew about the 90 Minute Baby cycle, I realised that I never followed it hundred percent. My daughter is a cat napper and only used to do 45 Minute naps. She also started waking more during the night since she turned 3 months. After taking some minutes to read the book from Polly Moore, I decided to start the sleeping program with my daughter the next day. And I have to say, I saw an improvement the first day. Very important is that you stick to it and take some days off any meetings etc. in order to get this program started. I love this book and it is compact and tells you all you need to know. It is not too long either and gets straight to the point. I can only recommend this book to anyone with babies, toddlers or even older children. Good purchase.

I haven't read all of the book but if I only take from it that my baby will wind down after 90 minutes, or multiples of 90 minutes after waking, it will be enough. Just armed with this info I have been able to estimate better when my baby will need a sleep. It means I can turn to her Dad and say she's been awake 2 and a half hours we've got about 15 minutes b4 we need to head home. It also means that if she misses that window I am better prepared knowing she is likely to get cranky by such and such a time. I downloaded it to my kindle on iPad which meant I was able to read it in the dark too!

I can not recommend this book enough, it is far better than tracy Hogg or Sears or contented baby book because it is simple.I was at my wits end before buying this . Like many new mums, I was trying to get my baby to sleep and he just would not want to. Screaming and kicking, my 7 weeks-old was getting more and more exhausted by the day, relying on too little day-time sleep . He could easily go 10 hours without anything more than a 10 minutes nap.
When I read this book (it is very quick, nice and short and to the point, perfect for busy new mums who just want to spend their time looking at their baby)everything statred to make sense.
My baby now sleeps really well during the day and at nights. He is calm and contented because we respect his rhythm. He does not need to cry because his needs are met. I explained the 90 minutes principle to everybody who looks after him and they all enjoyed having him because he would not fuss. when he was 12 weeks-old we started putting him in his cot 15 minutes before his time at night, staying with him till he was asleep: we did this for 3 days and now, we do not even need to soothe him to sleep.
I have recommended the method to absolutely EVERYBODY i know. it is the best thing ever, it is very simple and it REALLY WORKS for EVERYBODY!You can not go wrong with it because it is so simple.
