A recommended resource for baby sleep training. I found Ferber's diagrams and figures helpful in starting sleep training. I wish I had not avoided his advice for my child's first year! He's not the cry-it-out advocate I heard that he was (that's Dr. Weissbluth, and I don't like HIS approach of letting the baby cry indefinitely when doing sleep training). This book suited our needs nicely, and it worked. It's amazing how much more rested and happy we all are now that our 15 month old goes to sleep almost immediately upon us putting him in his crib at 7pm, and he can sleep a good 12 hours! He seems to appreciate the routine, too.

I love this book. It actually makes sense and the technique works!

I only read the sections I needed to learn about.

Try it and finally get a good nights sleep!

Dr. Ferber is unfairly maligned in a lot of "attachment parenting" web communities. But I wish I had read this book first instead of the others that friends recommended (especially Baby Whisperer, No-Cry Sleep Solution) that are so popular, but more dogmatic and not as evidence-based as this approach. This book offers practical suggestions for virtually any sleep problem, backed up with case studies from real families. A must read for all parents.

Very informative, but I found too dry to read for very long.
