Inside This Book(Learn More)
As the mother of four children, I know I don't have to convince you that your life would be easier if your child went to bed easily and slept the entire night-every night-waking up in the morning at a reasonable hour, refreshed and happy. Read the first page

I liked it firstly because I had never seen a book focusing specifically on toddlers and pre-schoolers before and I was keen not to try and make suggestions made in other baby sleep books 'fit' around our toddler son. From its first pages, Elizabeth's advice is practical, gentle, loving and designed to suit a variety of family circumstances. She does not advocate a one size fits all approach, rather giving several suggestions to each particular sleep issue, which you can choose from based on your own particular family situation. Nor does she suggest that her advice will offer a quick fix solution to your child's sleep difficulties.Read more ›
This book firstly lets you know you are not on your own and what is going on is normal ( as I had never had any sleep issues with my eldest, I was completely thrown with my youngest). She also tells you there are no quick fixes and to give ideas and routines time. I began to look at my routines and realised when we begin to log our routine they could be tightened up a little. We started to see a changed after about a week and then something else would happen, you know children they dont stay the same for to long and like to keep you on your toes. Therefore I was able to use this book as a reference if other issues cropped up.
I have had the book 4 weeks now and I would say my 22 month old son is now showing clear signs that he needs to go to bed, is sleeping longer, and his quality of sleep is less disturbed. We found his mattress was too firm ( although we bought him a thick pad to go over it when he was 10 months). We currently have an ikea bunkbed mattress on the floor and he is sleeping much better and 80% of nights are 11hrs solid with a 1.5-2.5hr nap( use to be 7-9hrs) and I feel they are getting better too.Read more ›
It is very easy to read/use and shows you how to draw up a sleep plan that is suitable for your family. I started using tips from day one of receiving my book as it is very easy to dip in and out of and get some good ideas before you read it from cover to cover. I think it's a good investment as I am sure my sons sleep issues will change as he gets older and I will just be able to refer to it as different issues arise such as ,nightime fears.
without traumatizing him/her, then I would recomend this book to you.
It have something for everyone and every situation.
Our daughter began waking during the night when she was 6 months old. It was a real concern since sleep is so important for children. We all went sleep deprived (mainly mommy and daddy) for a year. We thought we tried everything.
Then we read this book and incorporated several ideas. And they worked! Within one week our daughter was sleeping through the night. And so were we! ;-)
Thank you Elizabeth!

We bought this book to only find out from Pantley that our child is normal and that we are normal. There are no "solutions" per se and we find this book utterly useless. Read morePublished on Feb. 12 2008 by npaa
I purchased this book thinking that Pantley's 'infant sleep solution' wouldn't be appropriate for our 13 month old. Read morePublished on March 7 2007 by L. Manuel
