Some good ideas for the bedtime ritual.
Easy to read.
More for mothers who are breastfeeding and co-sleeping.

This is a fantastic book that will benefit any parent who wants an alternative to the 'cry it out' method, to help thier children sleep better during the night. The author has developed a stress free step by step programme to help your baby sleep throught the night. The best thing about it is that it is so relaxed and it causes the baby no stress or anxiety at all - it's all done without crying. This book is also perfect for you if you just need reassurance that you are doing the right thing by your baby by not leaving them to cry.
Liz on
The essential book for parent's of children who are not good sleepers - and who aren't prepared to leave their child to scream for hours in an effort to teach them to put themselves to sleep. Elizabeth Pantley offers hope in the form of workable solutions. Buy it, read it for yourself and you too will be recommending it to all your friends! Also available is The No Cry Sleep Solution for Toddlers and Preschoolers.

Tara on
What a great book. Every new parent should be givin this book at the hospital. Its so great to be told to go with your instinct instead of against it. I have recommend this book to all my friends and none have used the cry it out method after reading this book.
Nick on
I loved this book. The ideas and methods were gentle, loving and respectful to my baby's needs and feelings. It takes time to see results but the methods don't involve leaving my baby to cry by herself. I love the author's tone and attitude towards motherhood. Reading the book helped my baby become a better sleeper and me a more relaxed and happier Mummy.
Customer on
After buying many self help books as a first time mum, this one has got to be the most practical, and enjoyable read I have purchased. It has helped me to think of new ways to help my little one sleep, without the crying(mum and baby). I would def recommend this book to anyone who has reached a dead end and needs a solution. A guilt free, practical, and flexible solution.
Jemma on
Very easy and quick to read with wonderful ideas to help baby and Mum sleep through the night. I'm not one for control crying ideas and this really encourages you to not let your baby cry and the ideas do actually work. We started to see results within a couple of nights and last night baby slept from 7.30pm to 5.15am, straight! That's a 1st in 14mnths. I only wish I'd purchased this book sooner.
Customer on
It's nice to read a book that considers baby by trying to find an alternative option to crying it out. I'm all for teaching with love & caring, this book seems to be following that path.
Customer on
this book created confidence and insight that what was instinctive was ok and could be used to achieve a desireable outcome. It didn't teach me anything I didn't already know but it did put it into a routine I could follow with increased confidence in my already concieved opinions and this is what I needed. hard work but worth it.
