Description

An international phenomenon now available in America for the first time, this quick, no-nonsense guide is all you need to get your child to sleep through the night (pillow not included).
 
These days, most books on improving your child’s sleep take either a tough-love approach (ignore crying) or a soothing strategy (offer continuous comfort). But now an internationally renowned sleep expert provides a middle-ground method that will have your child sleeping through the night at any age. Dr. Eduard Estivill’s no-fail technique focuses on a mixture of authority, ritual, and reward. Parents can end negative cycles of resistance and wakefulness and feel as rested as their child will by following these expert tips:
 
• Adopt a firm and confident attitude (your child will pick up on your mood).
• Use meals as a cue to announce your child’s next nap or nighttime sleep.
• Incorporate appropriate elements (such as a stuffed animal or a pacifier) at bedtime so your child will not rely on you as a vital part of the sleep process.
• Reinforce the contrast between light (day) and dark (night).
• Never punish children by making them go to bed (it sends the wrong message about sleep time).
• Learn what to say before—and after—the light is turned off.
 
Complete with special techniques to use with newborns, plus an invaluable question-and-answer section that addresses specific concerns (children sleeping in their parents’ bed, how divorced parents can work together, special-needs children), this sanity-saving guide promises sweet dreams for all.

  • Not a no cry solution

    I'm extremely disappointed with this book. I was expecting a no cry sleep solution for my baby, and this book discusses a cry it out option. I wouldn't have bought it had I known that. I disagree with the author's views on my baby trying to manipulate me through crying, especially at 5 months old.
  • Concise, direct.. excellent book

    This is a great book, highly recommend it. I've read other books.. " the no cry sleep solution".. etc.. the problem with these books is that they're so long. I was looking for a book that would give me the plan not go into research and testimonials... I was a zombie mom and I just couldn't stay up reading a book. I found this book on a blog post and I am forever grateful. it's to the point, it has a plan and you just stick to it. it works!! I'm on week 3 and I'm so thankful to have my sleep back. good luck sleep deprived parents out there.
