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.

Wish I'd bought this book sooner! Purchased when baby was 8 months old and never slept well. Half of what I read I had unfortunately had to figure out the hard way for myself so I knew that part was correct which made it easier for me to believe the other half would be true. After reading the relevant chapters (you don't have to read the whole book all at once) suddenly the sleep problems seemed obvious as did the solutions! Brilliant book, they should give a copy to ever first time parent!!!

It took 3 days, but it worked!!! But 5 days later he has regressed a bit so i am having to implement it again. The reason i havent given it 5star is because this is a very lengthy book. It can be hard to get the info you want, and i dont have the time to read the whole book. So i do feel that there are gaps in my knowledge and could be missing something i should be doing.

Dr Ferber I love you! My 4 month old baby was waking 5-6 times a night and refused to nap. I read this book and within 2 weeks my baby naps 4.5 hours a day and last night slept 10 hours without waking! It's given me my life back. I didn't even do the whole 'cry it out' thing. Reading the book helped me to understand the problems and address them. Putting my baby on a schedule helped a lot. I recommend this to the sleep deprived parents of Britain.

I bought this book because my 4 month old son was not giving up nighttime feedings on his own. By the time I finished reading it I realized our biggest problem was not the nighttime feedings itself but his whole day nighy schedule, or rather lack of.
I implemented a sleep and eat schedule with the guidelines of the book and he gave up the night feedings practically on his own with no need for much else action (a few nights more difficult than the rest).
Now he sleeps at predicted times and through the night, and goes to sleep on his own when we put him in his crib.
To all parents who think the cry it out method goes against attachment methods, I would explain that a child needs to learn how to sleep on his own! A basic need in life! If a 18 year old does not know how to cook, would you call it attachment if he needs you for every meal 4 times a day? Independence is harder for parents sometimes. Teaching my child to sleep on his own is giving him a skill and independence while loving him and being there for him for everything else.

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!!

I listened to all of the horror stories about how cruel controlled crying was and wishing to be an 'attachment parent' and a loving mother who didn't want to cause my baby any unnecessary upset I spent a whole year feeling exhausted, tearful and in fact a terrible mother who wasn't able to settle my own baby for a whole night.

On his first birthday, I realised I could neither physically or mentally spend another year like this and, above all else, my baby needed the sleep he wasn't getting to thrive and develop, so I bought this, downloaded it and steeled myself for feeling wretched.

I was overwhelmingly surprised and very, very pleased to find a book written by someone who wanted to help children achieve the healthy sleeping patterns they need.

I put the techniques into practice that very night and, yes, my heart tugged when my baby started crying but I knew this was best for him; for both of us!

My baby is 22 months old now and has been sleeping through the night from that first week.

I wish I'd bought this book 9 months earlier!
