Great book that is based on scientific research and not on a person's personal opinion. Highly recommended.

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.

An interesting read about baby's sleep habits, but when I was looking for a book to help me with my 4 month old baby's sleep habits, this wasn't really it. It doesn't give any step-by-step methods, which is what I was looking for (and have found in The Sleep Easy Solution, although I won't know whether it works until after this weekend). It's also a bit confusing to read as it jumps around within the book and if you're already sleep deprived I have the feeling that all it will do is make you feel guilty about the fact that your child is being damaged by their sleep problems, without really helping you with a concete method of doing something about it.

I was so hoping that this book, coming from a more medical/scientific perspective, would help us to get our baby to sleep for 11-12 hours at night and take several long naps during the day. Our baby is a terrible sleeper at 9 months (and has been from birth), waking up to 6 times a night with short and erratic daytime naps.

I bought this book based on the numerous good reviews and I liked the idea of understanding the science of sleep (and addressing the underlying cause rather than the symptom), hoping that this would give us the tools to address the myriad problems with our baby's sleep (and chronic crankiness during the day).

As other reviewers have said, it is a large book (a tome) and although it is jam packed with scientific studies to back up all the information contained within as well as anecdotes from families who have successfully used Dr Weissbluth's techniques, I felt that it was badly organised with conflicting information. Just looking at the contents page will give you an idea of how complicated and overlapping the information is. Many of the chapters contain repetitive information and a lot of the information seems to be only applicable to very specific cases. I also found several contradictions in the advice given, such as the emphasis (via a little box on each page) that one should "never wake a sleeping baby" but this is later contradicted to say that in some instances it is important to wake a baby in order to ensure the routine is maintained.

However, some of the information is very useful such as the common assumption that putting your baby to sleep earlier will result in him waking earlier being disproved in detail.

Every new Mum should be given one of these free on the NHs when they become pregnant! Or so says my daughter in law! An absolutely amazing read, forthright and exceedingly helpful is how she describes itl. I purchased this for my daughter in law who was having difficulty establishing sleep patterns with her baby son. She soon realised that he was not getting enough sleep during the day, was becoming grizzly and having difficulty sleeping through the night. The hardest part was deciding the exact time that sleep was needed but with trial and error, she says this book has changed her life. She enthused so much about it that I purchased one for myself and have also found it a fascinating read. I wish I had known about this 40 years ago!!! If you are having problems with your child not sleeping then if you buy nothing else, buy this. It is worth every penny. Thankyou, thankyou Dr Weissbluth for your advice - it really works!!!
