"At long last, I've found a book that I can hand to weary parents with the confidence that they can learn to help their baby sleep through the night--without the baby crying it out."
--William Sears, M.D.
, Author of The Baby Book

"When I followed the steps in this book, it only took a few nights to see a HUGE improvement. Now every night I'm getting more sleep than I've gotten in years! The best part is, there has been NO crying!"
--Becky, mother of 13-month-old Melissa


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 book The No-Cry Sleep Solution.

Elizabeth’s successful solution has been tested and proven effective by scores of mothers and their babies from across the United States, Canada, and Europe. And now in response to weary parents asking for a little more guidance, Elizabeth has created fourteen brand-new videos exclusive to this enhanced ebook. Each of these three- to four-minute videos appears at the end of their specific chapter, summarizing what you have learned for quick recall or for those desperate moments when you’ve run out of ideas and need advice ASAP! Elizabeth gives you words of wisdom, tricks and tips, and soothing mantras, all that will help you get your baby sleeping.

Reviews

  • Feels like I've been cheated...

    By TorresBrazil
    After having read a few books on the subject it feels like this book is just a collection of the same good old ideas in a worse package, but with a few bad ideas sprinkled all over it. And when the author cited Iyanla Vanzant I thought to myself, "oh dear, where are we heading to?". Being the father of a baby girl who started sleeping through the night when she was 4 months old and suddenly lost that ability at 7 months old, I was searching for new information in order to put her back on track. What I found out in this book: 1) we're extremely lucky parents (really?); 2) 1 or 2 wakings during the night is totally acceptable (doubt that!); 3) deep sleep in early months might be bad for the development of the baby (what???); 4) the author is a co-sleeping advocate (danger!!!). And when you consider that the author's 4th child still woke up 8 times a night at 12 months old (that's when she decided to create a "plan"!!!), it makes you think "what does this lady really know about baby sleep?".
  • Videos are a great bonus!

    Hooray for the new chapter summary videos! I initially read the NCSS when my son was still a newborn. Pantley has a section that is geared toward babies younger than 4 months, so my focus was primarily on that. I skimmed the rest of the chapters just to get an idea of what to look for as he got beyond 4 months. As everyone knows, having a baby is time-consuming, and I didn't feel I had the time or energy to go back and read all the chapters in detail again once my son was older and the sleep issues really began. At that point, even coming up with a plan seemed overwhelming! Luckily, Pantley has added videos to the end of each chapter that summarize some of the key points, and her words of encouragement are motivating! I had planned on just watching the chapter videos, but I found that after I watched each one, I was motivated to go back and read the corresponding chapter in full. I've already started implementing some of her suggestions and seeing improvements! I really think the videos help break up the book into manageable pieces for a sleep-deprived mom to build and implement a great sleep plan.
  • Videos make this book very accessible

    The addition of videos to The No-Cry Sleep Solution is a boon to this already extremely helpful book. In them, Pantley is warm, calming, and reassuring. Helping a baby to sleep better is a trying and exasperating task (I say this from current experience, and I haven’t succeeded just yet!), and Pantley’s reassurance in these videos is reenergizing. It can be hard to keep going with a new plan when your outside support is just the words on a page. Through her videos, Pantley offers the reader another way to look at each chapter’s lessons, and I think it has made the book even more accessible.
  • Reminds you that your instincts are right

    The no cry sleep solution is the only book I recommend to all parents struggling to get their children to sleep and the new enhanced ebook is a perfect portable reminder that sleep will come. The NCSS is not a quick plan going to get you sleep immediately. It is a plan which needs time to take effect and you do need to stick with it long enough to see if it taking effect. If you want a quick fix, this book isn’t for you. The addition of the videos at the end of each chapter in this enhanced ebook provide a welcome summary and give you confidence to continue. They act as prompts when you think you have gone wrong and reassurance that changes, no matter how small, will be happening even if at the time you can't see them. Do not expect a quick fix, but nothing worthwhile in life ever is!

  • Understanding and working with your baby

    By Michele D'Angelo
    With two theories of parenting choices at night "let her cry it out" or "spoil" this book is a great read for parents. It has videos at the end of each chapter that do an excellent job summarizing the chapter for a sleepy mother to comprehend the book. This book has advice for parents that co-sleep, breastfeed, baby in crib, or bottlefeed. This book helps understand why the baby has certain sleep patterns and how you can work with your darling baby to get a more restful nights sleep with realistic expectations. The No-Cry Sleep Solution will help you create a custom plan for you and your baby. This is the book for any parent truly ready to get a full nights rest.
  • Must have for all parents and parents-to-be

    Pantley's book offers myriad tricks of the trade to help get babies sleeping better. Her solutions do require patience on the part of the parents (she suggests that you try a solution for 10 days before assessing its helpfulness). If you're at a point where you're able to be patient, or if you feel that your babe to too young to be left to cry, this is the book for you. However, don't discount this book even if you are looking for a quicker solution: you may find that you can use some of Pantley's solutions in addition to help make the journey easier on both you and the babe. The new enhanced ebook is a great tool for sleep deprived parents who can't find the time or energy to skim (let alone read!) a book. Watch the videos to help you decide which chapters you should skim or read, and which chapters to read down the road when you're getting more rested. This would be a great gift for a parent-to-be to help them get off to the right start and avoid many of the traps that we all fall into. The videos are a fantastic addition to a great book.
  • Videos great addition to book!

    This book is a great method for parents who don't want to let their babies cry! The videos add a nice summary to each chapter and aren't too lengthy.
