This is an excellent approach to sleep training from a compassionate, intelligent, logical, nurturing mom. My only criticism is the book is a bit long for a sleep-deprived parent to read but worth the time if you can hang in there. It does have some excellent ideas. No doubt about it, Pantley knows her stuff.

Features lots of different ideas, so you can work out what is most effective for your child. Much better than a one-size-fits-all approach.

The logging may seem like a bit of overkill (sure did to my husband) but as a first-time mom it really helped me to see that there really WAS a pattern to my daughter's behavior. Once I could see the pattern, I could see how to adjust it.

This book was very helpful to us when our daughter was a baby. From birth, she refused to sleep unless someone was holding her or lying next to her in bed. We tried the Ferber method, but quickly realized it was unsuited to our particular needs, and this book gave us insight into reasons our daughter might be having trouble getting to sleep and staying asleep. It also gave us some ideas for specific techniques to use to help ease our daughter into better sleep habits. It didn't end up being the final solution for us, but it did reassure us greatly that there WAS a solution. (For the record, she's 2 now and sleeps well all night long in her own room, and has since she was 17 months old.)

This book helped me through many a long series of sleepless nights. Not an easy solution, but what parenting is easy? Rather, this book helps the reader tune into the child and help the child learn to sleep.

Excellent book for parents who want their babies to be well-rested without using the "cry-it-out" method.

Has a lot of good ideas in one place! I had seen this book referenced everywhere and used some ideas with my most recent baby.

I usually don't like parenting books, but this is a must have for every mother. I didn't get this book until I had baby number three. I sincerely wish I had bought it back when I was pregnant with my first child. Elizabeth writes likes she's talking to a friend, in a non-judgemental way, encouraging mothers to do what works best for your family. She has some great tips that have helped me help my baby to sleep through the night.

Some good common sense for new moms, and a lovely and loving alternative to the "cry it out" option.

Goood book to read if you're looking for a different approach from "crying it out". Unfortunately, it did not work for us as we were already employing many of the mini-methods the author recommends (and there are about a dozen). We had to use a different approach with our difficult sleeper. Every baby is different; hopefully this book will be more helpful to someone else.

These methods sound good, and I know they have worked for some of our friends, but they did not work for us.

Some helpful information but this did not work for our son. Healthy Sleep Habits Happy Child was more successful. Good Luck all of you new parents out there.

The title is a bit misleading, but this book is worth reading if you are struggling with a baby who won't sleep.
