Format: Paperback
This has been the most helpful book I have read on the subject of child sleeping patterns and I wish I had read it before our baby was born, because as a previous reviewer has pointed out, there are issues with layout, repetition and consistency. One needs time to digest and understand the book and it can indeed be difficult to follow if one is already sleep deprived. For example, key recommendations highlighted in boxes on some pages, such as "Never wake a sleeping baby", are qualified in the body of the text (wake a sleeping baby if to let her sleep would interfere with that child's daily sleeping pattern): this can be initially confusing and we often had to read the same chapter a number of times in order to appreciate the subleties of the advice and the nuances for our own child. I didn't expect a "one size fits all" solution, however, so a certain complexity to the book seems understandable.

Such difficulties aside, we relied heavily on the book at months 3 to 4 and it helped us to understand the reasons for the changes to our baby's sleeping patterns and the importance of helping her learn to get to sleep by herself. From being woken every 2 hours throughout the night and our daughter being unable to nap for longer than 40 minute periods during the day (and consequently behaving as if she had attention deficit disorder and being generally a bit miserable when she was awake), we now at 8 months have (and have had since 4 months) a happy, relaxed baby who sleeps 11 or 12 hours at night and naps well and easily during the day: this has been literally life-changing and marriage saving.

I have read the other reviews and can't really comment on whether it would have been helpful to me with an infant deciding how to sleep train, as I didn't come across this book until I had two pre-schoolers, and wanted to know about their sleep needs and why they woke early.

For me the useful parts were the information about bedtimes, spotting the signs of first stages of sleepiness, how we often put children down later than they need because we don't read their signs, and what effects an earlier bed time can have. Like another reviewer I also had ditched the nap for my youngest when I read it, and also felt a bit bad. We didn't consider reinstating it because it would have been too disruptive, but we did opt to make up some sleep at night.

So we did try the theory of bringing the bedtime forward, rather sceptically, and it worked for us, although it is logistically very difficult and still requires a lot of things to fit round their bedtime, but it has paid off in other ways.

I didn't find the format very user friendly in many ways, and I don't know if the ideas would work for everyone, it certainly isn't a book of tips, as another reviewer said. But I did find it the best overall source of information on children and sleep and has widened my understanding enormously. I'm very glad I came across it.

the advice is great and it DOES work. however when you have a screaming child to see too and are sleep deprived the first 250 pages are not worth reading as it is just the science behind sleep, very fascinating and helps you understand why sleep is so important. there is a lot of 'conflicting' advice such as 'never wake a sleeping baby' but then goes on to say 'wake the child so not to interfere with the next nap' and 'wake child to get them into the correct routine', the original advice is aimed at not waking for own pleasure such as going out for lunch or shopping but that isn't made clear until near the end so it seams conflicting when reading that chapter. that aside this book is great a bit scatty the way it is put together but that isn't the authors fault.
i was also concerned that it would just have one type of sleep solution and if it didn't work id have to buy a new book however this book looks at all temperament of children and has a solution for each 'type' of child and also a sleep correction that is good for the parent such as 'no cry' 'cry a little' and 'cry it out'
MY experience
my baby is 4 months old and WE had created bad habits as he was diagnosed with reflux at 4 weeks and we started rocking bouncing to help soothe his pain but now hes 4 month and the reflux is under control we needed to stop the bad habits as he was getting up 8 times a night at 4 months i look like a zombie. i put all my effort into putting the routine in order, it took 24 hours to get him sorted yes 24 hours :) he went from 2 half hour naps in the day and getting up 8 times a night to having 2 2 hours naps in the day with a small 20 min nap late afternoon and going to bed settling himself to sleep and sleeping from 5pm till 6am only getting up twice for feeds then settling himself back to sleep.

This book is a little difficult to follow at times, but I think this is mainly an issue with the layout. It's certainly a bit difficult to tackle when you're bleary eyed with sleep deprivation. However, I think it's worth persevering as Weissbluth's advice does work. This book helped us with our eldest son through all the usual sleep issues such as early waking, nap transitions, etc. It's now proving very helpful and reassuring through our youngest's extreme colic.
