Overview

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.

    Amazing book

    I was surprised at how well this book works. I have a 27 month old son. I went from struggling to get him to sleep for anywhere from 30-60 mins and then having to wake up with him every 2 hours on average (sometimes as much as 3-4 times a night), to getting him to bed in just seconds and not having to get up with him at all. It took just 3 days by following the plan in this book, and now he sleeps 10 hours a night.

    Just when I thought sleep was impossible, the plan in this book proved me wrong. It is a straight forward, simple plan to follow (although not easy, for your little one will certainly be tugging on your heart strings), but in the end it is well worth the incredible results if you stick with it. Now both my son and myself can get the sleep we need.

    Don't be deterred by the length of the book. It's a short book, but what sleep deprived parent wants to sift through a long book to find answers? There were a couple things the author didn't address that I wish he would've but I wound up figuring them out for myself (such as if my son is not in his bed, it makes the most sense not to put him back in his bed when I popped in, in order to continue to follow the plan). I am VERY glad that I found this book.

    TERRIBLE

    This book was not worth the $10 I paid for it. I learned more by articles found online. A total waste of money and time!!
