My worst parenting purchases to date. He mentions other strategies but is quick to bash them. He manipulates research and uses anecdotal accounts to try to strengthen his argument for extinction. But, honestly, there are better books out there that will make you feel like a good parent for using this or any other sleep strategy that are a quarter of the length of this.

We ended up buying Precious Little Sleep and it was the best baby book so far. Bought this book on advice of a friend, but was disappointed to discover how thick and wordy it is. Frankly there's nothing in here you can't find for free on parenting websites, but if you're a first-time soon-to-be parent trying desperately trying to educate yourself, you could do worse than this book. Just expect it to be a slog and don't be afraid to skim chapters - chapter 2 has all the info you need, then you can toss it or give it away.

Yes, yes yes! Weissbluth's methods work if you take the time to read and understand them and then decide to commit to them. It is not necessary to read the book cover to cover since the book provides information and plans for an array of age groups.

His methods are humane, rational, and rooted in research and experience. And they WORK on real, fussy, irrational little people. Before I had kids, a colleague of mine said "One piece of parenting advice for you: sleep train your baby. My friends who didn't hate their lives. Our baby was incredibly fussy. Most of her waking hours were spent scream crying she had no physical ailments , so I decided if our kid was gonna scream when awake, she'd better learn to be a good sleeper.

At roughly four months of age the age at which Weissbluth considers it developmentally appropriate to really dive into sleep training , I started sleep training I can say confidently that Weissbluth's methods work IF you commit to them. And there is little reason not to commit to them as he clearly articulates his methods and provides explanations and research findings to support them. If you read this book, you will understand why establishing healthy sleep patterns is so crucial and how sleep problems early on can lead to developmental problems behavioral, emotional later in childhood.

As far as I know, we had the only baby and now have the only toddler in our friend group who has had NO problems sleeping from age 4 months forward --during naps and at night, and that is because we strictly followed Weissbluth's methods and take sleep very seriously. We decided we could sacrifice some adventure and spontaneity for a few years until nap times are a thing of the past, so that we could establish and maintain good sleep habits for our daughter.

Everyone else we knew was talking about sleep regressions, etc. Our baby never had any. Even during teething, no sleep problems. Weening off the breast, no sleep problems. After vaccinations, no sleep problems. Sick with a cold or fever, no sleep problems. It is true that legit sleep training may hamper your social life for a few years while your child requires consistent nap and bedtimes, but for us it was worth the tradeoff to have a healthy, well-rested kid who knows how to sleep.

My husband and I have more quality time together than our friends because our kid sleeps. The method itself: Weissbluth provides different variations on sleep training, but he is clear that "cry it out" is the quickest, most effective, and least traumatic way to teach babies to sleep.

Often times, parents see "cry it out" on paper and immediately write it off, thinking it must be inhumane. However, that assumption is irrational and not based on evidence.

Weissbluth does a great job explaining the reality behind cry it out and how it is the most humane and effective way to sleep train. As stated above, Weissbluth has over 30 years experience as a pediatrician, teaches at Northwestern Medical School, and helped found a sleep clinic at a children's hospital that specializes in sleep disorders.

He is not a dungeon master. This guy knows kids and sleep and the problems caused by bad sleep habits started in infancy.

My husband did NOT take the time to read this book, so when I decided to use "extinction cry it out," feeding, loving on my baby and then placing her in her crib and walking out he thought it was cruel. But after I explained the rationale behind it and her crying stopped after only a few days, and our kid slept, he became a believer.

Each time we hear friends talk about the sleep problems their kids have and hear how they never let their kids cry or don't think it's important to maintain a consistent sleep schedule, I am reminded how wonderful Weissbluth's method is.

My baby cried a bit the first few naps and nights we did cry it out. But then she slept. And at age 3 she still sleeps. And she wakes up happy and full of energy.

She feels confident because she has mastered the skill of putting herself to sleep and she trusts her parents because we respect her need for consistent sleep. Meanwhile my friends who refuse a few days of cry it out have suffered through years of crabby, overly tired kids crying or of bed sharing and never getting any quality sleep or alone time.

If you're ready to get serious about sleep, this book will change your life. So effing long! Google the cliff notes Agree with a lot of the points, but I got so bored with reading it I finally just googled the cliff notes and wish I would've done that from the begining.
