Format: Paperback
This book has nearly driven me to ditraction. It's harsh, not always accurate (3 separate health visitors and my doctor have all told me in the strictest terms that it is normal for a baby under six months to wake for a night feed once per night- Tracy Hogg writes as though any baby over three months still waking during the night has clearly not been parented correctly) and is very badly written- I found the sections confusing and not logical at all.

HOWEVER, the shush pat method works. It tooks us ages to perfect it and get it right for us- again, the style of writing is confusing. The EASY routine makes sense too but your baby might not do it exactly as the author describes.

BUT be really careful with this book- I have found it to be like a sentence around my neck at times- Tracy Hogg's answer to everything is that we must have done some accidental parenting.. I hate this term- it's unhelpful, judgmental and horribly smug. I teach children and see "accidental parenting" all the time so I understand what she means, yet the accusatory tone is unhelpful and completely misjudged- especially when you are sleep deprived and trying to do your best for your little bundle.

In summary- cotains some really good ideas, but the best thing would be take what you need.. then toss it onto the fire and go and enjoy your baby!

This book was recommended by a friend. I was sceptical at first as my baby was not a sleeper. 4 weeks later and my little boy sleeps regularly throughout the day and 11 hours at night!! It was a EASY!! (Apologies for the pun!)
I would recommend this book but advise you allow some flexibility to suit the needs of your baby

This book is quite repetitive of the other books she has written so I'm not sure it was worth paying money to buy it as well as her first book and the problem solver book. I haven't found much new to take from it that I can try to help my baby go through the night.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My baby slept through the night from the age of 7 weeks, which was great. However, after painful teething and a bad cold, she stopped sleeping altogether. She wouldn't nap or sleep in her cot for longer than 40 minutes and would only sleep if I rocked her and held her. I bought 3 books on sleeping and chose this one as it seemed a happy medium between letting her "cry it out" and the really soft approach. I also used to watch the Baby Whisperer on TV. The techniques in this book worked immediately and my baby slept 12 hours the first night! She has napped and slept ever since - 6 weeks now. I would recommend it to anyone!

13 of 18 people found the following review helpful A Kid's Review on 7 Oct. 2010
Format: Paperback
I stopped reading this after about one third of the way through because some of the information was out of date e.g. the author recommends swaddling babies after 3 months, for as long as is tolerated. This is not in accordance with current UK medical advice. Babies can overheat if swaddled after 3 months.
Also, I didn't approve of her unhelpful harsh terminology e.g. "accidental parenting" which she describes as the "complete opposite of patient and conscious parenting". This sounds fair enough, but her "accidental parenting" includes any parent who has EVER rocked their baby to sleep, got up with their baby at 5am etc. I can't think of any parent who hasn't done some of the activities on her list, but nearly every parent I know still manages to be patient and conscious.
The statements about parents who have "broken the bonds of trust" with their baby and instructions to sit on the floor all night next to the baby (sleeping on a pillow on the floor) is particularly harsh and unrealistic.
However, her E(at).A(ctivity)S(leep).Y(ou) plan was a simple and sensible idea.

Tracy Hogg's books are all great. I'd definitely recommend this book to anoyone, not only first time parents. My 4 months old daughter is still breastfed and sleep throught the night in her own room. Something I couldn't imagine when she was only few weeks old. Thanks Tracy!

Format: Paperback
Sleep training isn't suitable for babies under 6 months. It is perfectly normal for them to wake through the night and the fact that some woman has written a book implying that it is anything but ordinary is appalling. No well informed health care professional would point you towards this book as the advice is awful. My heart goes out to the poor young babies that have been put through this by first time parents who don't know any better! The author should be ashamed of herself.
