After 18 months of waking at least every 2 hours in the night, I had to do something! I had tried other books, but didn't seem to get on with them. This however, explains the science behind sleep and goes into everything, so you are reassured that your baby/child can sleep or helps you get the right help if not. Once I understood the science and how sleep works, it all made complete sense. After 3 nights she was going to sleep alone in her cot, without crying. After 4 nights, she slept the whole night through. 2 months later, on the whole sleeps through the night and has a nap during the day in her cot. This was unheard of, as she would just scream and head-butt the cot constantly. I love this book and if I need to recommend it, I will do 100%! Great service. Came very quickly, which is what I needed!!

This is a great comprehensive book with solutions to a whole host of sleep problems for infants & children all ages. At 6 months we tried the progressive waiting approach outlined in this book to break my baby's association with falling asleep in our arms. The progressive waiting approach famously dubbed
cry it out' suggests you leave your baby to cry for progressively longer periods starting at 3min working up to 20min. If like us you know your child is only waking because they don't know how to fall asleep without you then this is a effective way to solve this problem. This was the solution for us and she went to sleeping through on the second night & it sorting out her naps (taking 1.5-2hr naps instead of 30-45min) by the 3rd day. Our experience is below if you're interested
Our baby used to cry in our arms as we walked around for 20min to get her to sleep then we would wait another 20min for her to enter into a deep sleep & put her down. This worked quite well until around 5months when after an initial 4hr stretch she would wake within an hr of putting her down & this would go on all night! In hindsight i know that in between sleep cycles she would see the environment in which she fallen asleep had changed & this would wake her fully. She would then cry because she was tired & didn't know how to fall back to sleep without us. (Like teaching a child how to ride a bike without stabilisers you have to just let go & show them they can do it without you.) We first tried some 'no cry' alternatives shh pat /rocking until almost asleep etc our presence seemed to only aggravate /stimulate her & hinder sleep. Then reluctantly we tried this & now everyone is better off.The longest she cried was 30min.

Absolutely fantastic, I had my doubts about using this method but I was desperate and after reassurances that it would only be temporary and the results would justify the means I gave it a go. He used to wake every 2-3 hours at 6 months old!! Every night we saw a massive improvement in him going to sleep without having to rely on me rocking him or nursing him to sleep. By the 3rd night he no longer cried - just a bit of a whinge. Naps were harder for us but he got there by the time a week had passed. Now he goes to sleep after talking to his teddy and blankie for a bit and a little wrestle with them! Life changer.

Contrary to popular belief, it's not like you're abandoning them all night. You return to offer reassurance. My baby boy is so much happier and well rested now he knows how to fall asleep and return to sleep by himself after waking a little.

I was very pessimistic about whether Dr Ferber's sleep training would work after reading many reviews which were for and against his recommendations. However I decided to give it a go. My daughter needed to be cuddled to sleep every night by me and would not let her Dad put her to bed. She was starting to be more and more demanding so something needed to change. We decided to start on a Friday night and I prepared myself for the worst. I put my daughter in her cot and she started screaming, I then did the first check at 3 mins which made her scream more, 2 mins later she was sick! We cleaned it all up then started all overe again. This time the crying didn't seem so bad and 35 mins later she was fast asleep! I felt like the cruelest mother letting her cry and making her sick but wanted to see it through. She slept through the night and then next morning gave me plenty of cuddles and smiles. On the 2nd night she cried as I put her in the cot again but 2 mins later was fast asleep. On the 3rd night there were no tears at all and she let me put her in the cot without a fight, rolled over and went to sleep! I tried this on her day time nap too on the 3rd day and she let me leave her in her cot to go to sleep by herself. AMAZING! This truely did work. Although I felt awful on the first night it didn't take long at all for her to re-learn how to go to sleep by herself. Give Dr Ferber's sleep training a go if you think it will help!

I read this from cover to cover before we decided to try it with our daughter. She just turned 5 months and sleeps pretty well but relies on a dummy. We followed Ferber's advice and reduced use of the dummy for daytime use for a week before attempting removing it at night. I'd worked myself up that it would be really hard but the first night we put her to bed tired as suggested and without the dummy, and then did the 3 min check - and she was asleep by 5 mins in!! I thought it was luck and she was just very tired but it has been the same every night and she is sleeping much better through the night - just one feed and self settling if she wakes. Huge improvement as we were previously waking sometimes 20 times a night to reinsert the dummy. Would definitely recommend but do read the whole book and make sure you're treating the right sleep problem in the right way.
