A renowned pediatrician explains her revolutionary new method for training infants to sleep right . . . from the start

Dr. Cathryn Tobin, pediatrician of 25 years, midwife, and mother of four, reveals a breakthrough discovery that will transform the way that parents put their infants and toddlers to bed. Dr. Tobin has found that a physiological window of opportunity opens—usually at 6 to 8 weeks—when a baby can learn great sleep habits before bad ones develop. If parents follow her 7-day plan and take advantage of this crucial time in child development, they and their newborn will be sleeping through the night sooner than any other sleep book promises . . . and without the crying and screaming that comes with other approaches.

The Lull-A-Baby Sleep Plan is the first sleep manual that focuses on preventing infant sleep problems before they have a chance to begin. But if a parent has missed the window, there's still hope and HELP: Dr. Tobin's no-cry program for re-training older babies and toddlers. Dr. Tobin developed this program after sleep deprivation caused a car accident that almost cost her life. Since then she has successfully used her method with hundreds of grateful parents.

Editorial Reviews

Mary Mohler
Parenting is a 24/7 job, and it can get pretty lonely at 3:00 a.m., especially if you're the kind of parent who can't bear to let your child cry himself to sleep. That's why The Lull-a-Baby Sleep Plan is so wonderful. Dr. Cathryn Tobin not only has a gentle, caring approach to your baby, but also has great empathy for what you're going through. New parents can help their infant learn healthy sleep habits from the get-go, and those who've missed the early window of opportunity can backtrack and solve bedtime battles with an older child. Drawing on her years of experience as a midwife, a pediatrician, and a mom, Dr. Tobin illustrates her techniques with a wide variety of sleep problems. This is one book that should be in every parent's library.

Cathryn Tobin gives new parents the encouragement and inspiration to develop the skills they need to help their children sleep. Anyone who has struggled to put a child to bed, night after night, will appreciate the honest, direct and practical approach Tobin uses. As a parent of four children and senior editor at ePregnancy, I know that sleep is one of the toughest issues new parents face. Kudos for a terrific road-map to a good night's sleep for all kids - and their parents.
Dr Henry Solow
The best way I've ever seen to help new parents get more sleep.

I thought the first night would be the worse! I was so excited when my three-month-old daughter, Paige, fell asleep on her own that I called Dr C's office and left her this message, You were right about Paige being able to fall asleep on her own. But you were wrong when you said it would take about twenty minutes—-it only took ten!

This really works! Dr. C's advice completely changed my life and I have passed it on to others who feel the same way!

I'm pretty born again about the Lull-a-Baby Sleep Plan. I followed the 7 day plan and even though I was exhausted, I didn't give up. It wasn't easy for me to listen to my baby fuss, but I never felt like I was deserting her. Thankfully, Cali began to sleep for longer stretches before the week was up.

a wonderful book . . . If Dr. Tobin can't be your pediatrician, read her book!

My 10-wk old son has been sleeping for 9 hours a night with only 1 brief feeding. I used much of what I learned in this book and combined it with strategies from Babywise. Everyone expecting a baby should read these 2 books and share them with grandparents or others who will help you care for your child.
