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!

Having read nearly every book on sleep I thought I knew it all! I was wrong...though I knew about sleep cycles, I hadn't realised just how accurately it can be used to judge my baby's readiness for sleep. I found the simplicity of the 90 minute concept very useful and it works! Over time I have managed to observe the natural pattern my baby's sleep falls into and now have a routine that fits him rather than stressing to force him into the nap times 'given' by other books. I feel confident knowing when my baby is sleepy and since he can already self soothe, it is so much easier now knowing I can put him down 90/180/270 minutes after waking (depending on the wakeful interval for the time of the day) and that he WILL sleep. I came across the book when my baby was 6 months old...I wish i'd known and started it earlier.

We started using the NAPS plan when our son was about 8 weeks old. I had read this book whilst pregnant and thought it made a lot of sense, however didn't get round to using it until a bit later. Our son was to begin with a 'colicky'/fussy baby who cried at night/in the evenings and wouldn't sleep for hours in this period, sometimes from 6pm until about 2am.
By 8 weeks I read some parts of the book again and felt that our son was perhaps just overtired, and also realised that he was averaging about 10 hours sleep in every 24 hr period, as opposed to the 'normal' range of 14-17. So, I read through the NAPS plan again for the appropriate stage and started to get him napping more during the day to see if that would help.
Within two weeks, our son now naps during the day totalling about 4/5 hours, and has now started to go to bed at 7:30 and sleeps until about 8am with one feed during the night. His sleep is always going to be on the lower end of the scale, coming to about 13/14 hours, but it's a big change and is making such a difference.
I feel that this plan has helped our family in many ways. It's helped me become more sensitive to his sleep signals, more in tune with his needs (whereas before I wouldn't understand why he was crying, I now know that 9 times out of 10 it's because he's tired), as well as helping him wind down in the evenings to the extent of getting to an early bedtime before 12 weeks, something which has really helped us stay sane!
One thing I will say is that I was so fixated on getting him to have enough sleep and to stay asleep once he started napping, that I put quite a bit of pressure on myself to keep him asleep. Babies however have other ideas! Now I am more relaxed and trust that he will now nap as long as he needs to, and if that's only for 30 mins then that's OK.
I hope this review helps other stressed out mums and dads looking for help with getting their baby to sleep. Good luck and hope it works for you.

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!!
