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)
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.See all Product description

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 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!) my twins were still nursing to sleep in the evenings and I just couldn't bear to make an easy task really hard for myself. I figured I'd come to the nighttime training once we'd sorted out the naps, when they were a bit better at settling themselves. And it worked a treat! I had two really tough weeks, but even then I could see gradual improvement. And after that they both really started to get it. After about three weeks I could read them a story, put them in the cots and shut the door, at which they would pretty much always chat to each other for a few minutes and then go to sleep. And even better, now that they are getting good at settling themselves, their night wakings have really dropped off. We're about five weeks in now, and in the last two weeks I've had just one waking each. Also, they are often now staying awake after their evening feed, but I can put them in their cots awake and leave them chatting and they settle down to sleep within a few minutes. So it doesn't look like I'm even going to have to do the nighttime training. I never would have thought it could work so well and so quickly. If you're suffering from sleep deprivation and thinking about buying this book, do it now!
