'Just reading Sleep has a calming effect...parents will feel supported and more confident...these feelings will be passed on to their baby, problem-free nights as a result!' - Dilys Daws, The Tavistock Clinic

Clinical research shows that half of all babies who have a sleep problem at one still have it at three. Based on proven methods and tools, Sleep offers guidelines that can be adapted for each particular parent and child, allowing the reader to become an expert on their own baby.

I was given this book by a friend of mine when I was pregnant and she said she had wished she had it when her son was a few weeks old.
I read it twice before my daughter was born and again once she had arrived - I admit in the early weeks I threw the book across the room a couple of times in frustration & tiredness! But I followed the advice - suddenly at 7 weeks old Emily did her "Core" night - down at 10pm and she didn't wake until 5.30am. I couldn't believe it and neither could my body - I was breast feeding at the time!
We did get caught out trying to keep Emily up for her 10pm feed as she would feed at 7pm and then be screaming again by 8pm, friends said it was colic but I searched the book again and realised she did want another feed even though she had just finished and then to go to bed please!
Bedtime just got earlier and earlier until finally Emily was saying; "Bedtime is 7pm Mum!". By 10 weeks Emily was going to bed at 7pm and waking at 7am - Thank you Beatrice and Lucy! My husband & I returned to eating and talking together of an evening and my daughter (who is now 1) actually says "Ba, Ba" when she has finished her milk and is ready to be put in her cot!
She sleeps for England day and night and I have no doubt that she is such a happy and contented child because she gets plenty of sleep and is confident to go to sleep all by herself.
Of course we have had some nightime interruptions with teeth/illness and it would be easy to give her a feed to get her back to sleep - but she knows and we know, that she is only fed when she's hungry!

We bought the book on recommendation from a friend. It uses a baby led approach to learning to sleep through the night. The core night chapter in particular is very useful. One of the biggest hints that it gave to us though is to trust your baby to be able to sleep. Taking that advice on board stopped us running to pick both our girls up at the first noise and waiting to see if they would settle by themself first. As a result our eldest slept through 10pm-7am from 7 weeks and the youngest by 8 weeks old. It is not a cry it out approach at all - I personally am not for that sort of parenting.

The technique in this book is incredibly simple and worked exactly as described for our baby - i cannot recommend it more highly. He is now just turning 1 year old and has been sleeping through the night since 5/6 weeks (not including when he is ill, teething etc), and I am very confident this would not have happened had I not read this book. We have so many friends with babies the same age who are still not sleeping through, and I firmly believe this is largely because the parents inadvertently trained them into this behavior, rather than it being 'just the way they are'

However, you have a limited window of opportunity to make this work. I think if your baby is already over 8/10 weeks old you are probably getting into the realms of having missed the window, therefore it is possibly not worth reading the book.

Also, I have been accused of 'forcing' my baby to sleep through using this book. This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard! How on earth anyone would go about 'forcing' a baby to go to sleep and stay asleep when they don't want to is beyond me. This is simply about creating the right conditions for your baby to sleep as he/she wants to do. There is absolutely nothing cruel about it.

After 1 year of sleepless nights (being up 3-6 hours nearly every night), I was only half way through reading this, when I tried implementing the suggestions and within 3 nights, and very little distress to all, my daughter slept through! Although it is far more useful to read before the baby arrives, it is still invaluable at any stage if you have a child who does not sleep. It gave me the confidence to believe that my daughter could sleep through the night and she did. It also has great advice when sleep becomes disrupted again due to teething/illness etc. I borrowed a copy with my first child, bought a second hand copy with my second daughter and have lent it out and recommended it to anyone and everyone. I am delighted to see it is back in print

its a thin straight forward book with feelings to get your job done. Your baby will start sleeping through the night by one and week if you follow the book. It is worth seeing before you try "Cry it out" method.
I personally feel "Cry" method is cruel. As baby is left in cot to cry .. come on he is just a baby he doesn't know what he supposed to do when the parents left him alone in dark room. how will he understand... are you expecting him to be so intelligent as an adult.

This book offers you to console your baby and tell him what he supposed to do in controlled crying. As if a baby daily gets a loly then one day you dont give because its a bad habit but leave the child cry is not good but you can console him and show him the other things than loly.. in the way child dont get distress and get to know that there are other things available than loly .. and happily settles.
