Publisher's Summary

There are two schools of thought for encouraging babies to sleep through the night: the hotly debated 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. If you don't believe in letting your baby cry it out, but desperately want to sleep, there is now a third option, presented in Elizabeth Pantley's sanity-saving audiobook The No-Cry Sleep Solution.

Pantley's successful solution has been tested and proven effective by scores of mothers and their babies from across the United States, Canada, and Europe. Based on her research, Pantley's guide provides you with effective strategies to overcoming nap-time and nighttime problems. The No-Cry Sleep Solution offers clearly explained, step-by-step ideas that steer your little ones toward a good night's sleep - all with no crying.

    "Good"

    The book has good ideas in it and great alternatives to the CIO method. However, it didn't work with my baby boy (8 months old) who is high needs. (Look that term up if not familiar please)

    "if you breastfeed and co-sleep there are good tips"

    there are few good tips that I found useful. only a few days in and some changes have already happened at my house. I appreciated that older babies were mentioned and also experienced some degrees of success. This is really just a bunch of tips and the reminder that keeping a log gives insight and makes small and large improvements noticeable. If you are not breastfeeding or cosleeping I think that you may find the promotion of breastfeeding and co-sleeping to be condescending for those who are not. since we're doing both this book was not annoying in that way for me. but I can see that it would be for others. this does not offer any short-term, Quick Fix solution. I am seeing small results already though.

    Story
    "This book has transformed nighttime in my house. "

    Over the course of the summer, my 9 mo has gone from waking at least every two hours and sleep nursing throughout the night, to sleeping 8 hours at a time in his crib and another few with me. He is even able to self soothe throughout the night, and it all happened without crying! My partner and I sleep better, there's no guilt involved, and it's all thanks to this book. We still have work to do, but every time I listen to this book, we make sleep progress. Thank you for saving my sanity!

    "Ranting"

    This is a dreadful rant full of propaganda and starting with a bunch of legal caveats protecting her from lawsuits. For good reason, as the book itself is like listening to your know-it-all second cousin who is happy to tell you how to sleep train your child because she caught you looking tired with your baby at a family function.

    If you are looking for an unscientific rant based on email testimonials, the author's husband's opinion, and lots of uneducated advice from anyone the author could find to argue for her point of view - THIS BOOK IS FOR YOU!

    If you are actually interested in learning techniques to help your baby sleep based on an actual Doctor - IT IS NOT.

    If you aren't sure what's best for you and your baby and want some scientific information delivered in a non-judgmental format that's an easy read/listen, read Brain Rules for Baby by John Medina.

    If you want to learn the Sears method for sleep training, just read the Dr Sears books. Don't waste your money on this.

    Story
    "Highly biased, not fair towards all methods"
    Any additional comments?

    I was hoping for an unbiased and full account of the different sleeping methods. This book is not it - this book is extremely harsh and judgmental towards parents who chose to use CIO/CC methods, despite their proven track record. Parents should NOT feel guilt-tripped into/out of certain methods because of an author's agenda.<br/><br/>The book also isn't a program, as the author tries to sell it. The author will have you write a sleep log (and lord the sleep log examples don't translate well into an audiobook, by the way), and then try a scattershot of methods until you find something that works for you. I'm not saying her techniques aren't useful - many of them are. But there is no coherent program here.<br/><br/>It's also worth noting that the author, a self-styled expert, has no credentials to speak of. She has run a pseudo-scientific trial and proclaims a virtually 100% success rate, which should make you suspicious.

    "Don't waste your time"

    This book is full of contradictions. Complete garbage. Don't waste your time. Wish I could get hours of my life back.

    "Gentle, Loving and Caring"
    What did you love best about The No-Cry Sleep Solution?

    This book is from one Mommy to many mommies out there who haven't been able to get a good night's sleep.<br/>This is not a book for quick fixes. I am an exhausted parent myself, and I just finished listening to this book, but I am willing to try the techniques and give it a go. <br/>The techniques are gentle and loving, and the author has developed them through her own experience, and not some made up theory.


    What did you like best about this story?

    There is no place for blame with this book. So, it feels like you are in a support group, because you have many statements from many moms who felt just as exhausted as I feel now.


    Have you listened to any of Susan Ericksen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Nope. First time. And I must say that if I come across another book narrated by her, I will gladly listen to it. I thoroughly enjoyed it.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Exhausted parents need rescue


    Any additional comments?

    If you are looking for some agressive technique to get your baby to sleep through the night immediately, this book is not for you. <br/>This book is more about attatchment parenting, and tries to show ways to tuck your baby in with no crying, as gently as possible. I recommend it.
