Review

A godsend for tired parents everywhere. I highly recommend this book to the parents of infants and young children who have a problem sleeper on their hands (Howard Bennett, MD, author of WAKING UP DRY: A GUIDE TO HELP CHILDREN OVERCOME BEDWETTING)

GOOD NIGHT, SLEEP TIGHT is the first book of its kind to clearly explain why bedtime is such a challenge for so many kids and their parents, and to offer solutions that won't tortue anyone (Maura Rhodes, Senior Editor, PARENTING magazine)

Right after "Boy or girl?" the next question new parents often hear is "How's he sleeping" (after going through Kim West's painless, practical, and easy-to-implement program, they'll be able to honestly answer, "Like a baby"‘)

Armin Brott, author of EXPECTANT FATHER ('Parents and children alike should welcome this commonsense, family-friendly guide to childhood sleep from birth to age five . . . This book will teach parents to gently start to shape a baby's sleep in infancy, sparing them the months or even years of sl)

Book Description

A commonsense, family-friendly guide to newborn, baby and toddler sleep from birth to five years old from a highly experienced sleep specialist (known to her satisfied clients as The Sleep Lady). A book to help you put baby and toddler sleep problems behind you.

Seriously, if your a sleep deprived new mum, this book is the last thing you need. Overly thick, heavy, wordy, long. If you're turning to a sleep help book, it usually means you're desperate and exhausted. This book is just too much.

Might be ok if you're pregnant and on maternity leave before your first child (i.e. When you have time on your hands). Otherwise give this a miss and buy a different book, there are others that are shorter, more concise and to the point... and also help you get your child to sleep.

I had read a number of baby books before this but Kim offers useful practical techniques for gentler ways to get baby to sleep. My LO finally slept through about two weeks after implementing Kim's techniques :) It also offer advise for changes that may happen in LOs sleep up to school age but hopefully we won't need that!

Just controlled crying except you sit in the room and listen to the torture of them crying instead of outside the room. Waste of time.

I highly recommend this book for parents who are thinking there must be some solution other than 'cry it out' or picking them up constantly. I really felt that I was supporting my son and giving him security without making him overly dependent on me. The advice in the book really works. I trained my son at around 4-5 months using this method and he became an excellent sleeper, very rarely waking through the night. I could put him down and just leave the room and he would happily go to sleep on his own. We got off track when I went back to work, with my son wanting me in his room until he fell asleep, meaning I would be stuck in his room for hours, so I decided to follow this method again. I established a new bedtime routine and followed the 'sleep lady shuffle' and within a week and a half, he is back to falling asleep within a half hour of being put in bed, without needing me in the room. I really can't recommend it enough!

I bought this book because my 14-month-old twins had pretty much never slept through the night and I was reaching the end of my tether. They tended only to wake up once or twice each, but it would take 1-2 hours to get them back to sleep. Also they were no good at settling themselves to sleep, either at night or naptime. One in particular would not go into bed awake, he had to be nursed or rocked to sleep and then snuck into bed. I know that this habit was my fault, but as with most mums (especially of twins) I'd just been doing everything I could in the early months to get them to sleep.
I knew I had to do something, but couldn't bear the idea of letting them scream all night. I tried the No Cry Sleep Solution and found that, while sort of useful, it was a bit vague and didn't really help me that much. Finally I found this book, and it has been a miracle! It's a bit more assertive than the No Cry Sleep Solution, but you are very much involved in the process of the child learning to settle himself and don't just leave him to it as you would with 'cry it out' techniques.
One of the great things about this book is that it explains in a really understanding way why you will probably need to let your child cry a bit. For mothers like me who find it really painful, it encourages you to be brave and close that door, and not go running back in a few seconds later. I loved her analogy of being like the coach who needs to let the team get out on the pitch and play the game themselves, it made me realise that I needed to step back a bit and let them learn to help themselves sleep better.
This isn't specifically recommended by the book, but I decided to start with daytime nap training. I did this because (and I know it goes against all sleep training!

In all honesty i shouldn't have read this as I don't really agree with any sort of parenting manuals prefering to use my instinct but my babies falling asleep was getting to me as he was screaming in my arms anyway so i thought i might as well try something. It does work don't get me wrong but it was short lived and it stopped me listening to my instincts which i personally think caused more problems - but i do think it would be useful for some parents that like more guidance which is why i rated it as 3 stars rather than the 1/2 stars i would have given for our experience... It is useful for rough ideas of how your baby should be sleeping (no of naps, bed, feeding etc) but my little one was outside of all these guidelines by this book so i prefer to stick with my instinct. I will read the first stage before i have my second for tips but i will trust my instinct more

Well I followed it to the letter and I still have twins that cry hysterically at night.. Separation anxiety was dealt with, I thought, using the sleep lady shuffle technique but the next day they reverted back to hysteria even if I stayed in the room. Don't upset yourself by thinking you should be able to solve problems using this book. I just wasted time and emotional energy on techniques that failed and made me feel even worse about my hysterical babies.
