Short Description

There are two schools of thought for encouraging babies to sleep through the night: the Ferber technique of letting the baby cry it out, or the grin-and-bear-it solution of getting up from dusk to dawn as often as necessary. This book provides you with strategies to overcoming naptime and nighttime problems.

Long description

Sleep is the one of the most-discussed topics among new parents - because they don't get enough. Most books on helping babies sleep fall into two categories: let them cry it out or simply live with getting up at night. Parent educator Elizabeth Pantley, author of Perfect Parenting, wasn't satisfied with either approach. Her method is based on research into sleep associations and has been tested and proven effective with her own child and a varied group of scores of mothers and babies from across the U.S., Canada, and even Europe. The method will appeal to parents because it does not involve leaving your child to cry himself to sleep. And best of all, it really works. The responses from the test group have been fabulous - children who had been waking up four and five times or more every night began to sleep through - with no crying. This is the long-sought-after answer for sleep-deprived parents who don't want to let their children cry themselves to sleep.

Perfect Pantley

Wow! I am sooo pleased to have found this gem of a book! I refuse to let my baby boy cry himself to sleep! It's soooo traumatic for them! I didnt know what to do anymore, seeing that he woke up so many times a night, purely because he knew I would help him back to sleep by nursing. This book is filled with great tips and help to teach him to gently put himself back to sleep with no crying whatsoever! I haven't even read through the whole book yet, but I am already so excited to start implementing what I have been reading. Until I am finished with the book,I am enjoying my precious time with my baby with a guilt-free conscious, knowing that I will soon be losing these precious moments, in a gentle, loving way.....

Great Book

Although I havent managed to read and complete the whole book yet, I am so grateful to have finally found someone who doesnt believe in Cry It Out, and offers practical advise and tips.

It's a MIRACLE!!!

How an amazing book this is!! I don't believe in leaving my poor baby to cry it out, it is a horrible experience and at the end we both are crying! This book tells you just how to help your baby to sleep on his/her own and for much longer than you are used to! Just by reading the book you know that Elizabeth is a great mother and it feels as if she is living in your own house, that is how wonderful she explains the situation that you are in now - NO SLEEPING and exausted! If you want some help with your baby's sleeping patterns, I will strongly advise you to buy this book, it is every cent worth it!!! Can't wait to start reading the rest of her collection!
