Within two nights I started to see improvements in my son's ability to fall asleep. The book is brief and to the point, but still has enough content to provide the information I need. The methods are situation and age specific, so you can develop your own techniques based on your family's needs. I LOVE this book! Starlight
I cannot believe the difference this book has made. Before, I was trying something new to get my 8 month old to sleep through the night every couple weeks! I would give up on one thing and move on to the next. This book has helped me to see very gradual and subtle things you can change to help my baby sleep and me to relax a little bit. We are definitely less stressed at bed time and we get more sleep! Love this book. Thank you for helping me get my sleep back! Mak
Thank you for helping my 6 month old boy get better sleep. I purchased "No-Tears Self soothing" and amazingly it worked in a week. Now, my boy goes to bed so easily and can sleep through the night. (Biggest issues were that he needed to be fed and loosing pacifier. It all fixed after reading your book!!). Naomi, New York
I wish I read this months ago. My daughter is 14 months old. She was awake multiple times in the night. From the time she was born I was up with her every 1-4 hours. On the third night of implementing the strategies suggested from this book she slept just over 7 hours. Ann
First book that actually did help- results in one week thank you / and my baby is breastfed - miracle.
and most practical"
Heidi, your book includes the best and most practical (and detailed) info! I read several others and they didn't help at all. Mostly because they were so terribly wordy and full of lengthy "case scenarios" - too dramatic and hard to follow. Your writing was so relieving.

alternative to cry it out method"
This is a great alternative to the cry it out method that REALLY works. I highly recommend this as you try to sleep train.
pages of magic"
It was as if it was meant to be...
Your no tears self soothing ebook was so helpful, easy to read and understand (and I've read so many books and advice columns), and to top it all off its only 70 pages....but 70 pages of magic.

It works!! Hi Heidi, wanted to tell you A GREAT BIG THANKS for your tips on self soothing the gentle way. our little girl is now 8 1/2 mos old and has been going to sleep more and more awake since trying the technique. She now goes down completely awake falls asleep in 10 min and goes back to sleep at night when she wakes. She sleeps 10-11 hours a night and her naps have gone from 30-45 min to 1 - 2 hours. All with out the severe and harsh crying it out methods! THANKS!

very best I've read"
I've read lots of baby sleep books and this is the one that gave me faith again! It is short (thank you), straightforward, effective.
I was really surprised that there were lots of things I didn't think of/read before and that were really good. I thought by now I had read it all! Of course you have the usual "not too tired, bedtime routine, lovey" tips but even that's better explained than in other books.
There is no filling, no self-congratulatory anecdotes from the author or endless list of credentials as intro, no guilt trip, no CIO... yes, sounds refreshing, doesn't it.
A good example is how to wean baby from falling asleep with the nipple/bottle/pacifier in mouth and (catch phrase coming up) putting him/her to sleep awake. It is easier and better than Pantley's much-overblown "Gentle Removal Plan" (and without the fuss)!!

|"This might be the best 10$ you spend in
your entire life!"
My 9 months old used to never be able to fall asleep on his own and would wake up 1-3 times a night crying and needing me to fall back asleep. After reading that book and after many nights of patience and persistence (SO important like the author says many times in that book) my baby which is now 17 months old has been falling asleep completely on his own, wide awake, and NEVER woke up in the middle of the night. It did not happen from one day to the other but I would say that within a month or 2 at the most he had completely change his sleeping habits. Not only at night but during the day naps as well. I finally have some time back for myself during the day and I can enjoy my evenings with my husband. To everyone who is thinking of buying this book but are skeptical: just do it! This might be the best 10$ you spend in your entire life! Although I recognize this might not be working for everyone, I'm pretty sure than 99% of babies could have sleep improvements using these techniques.
