Very well written and easy to relate to. Using the techniques, our child now sleeps through the night and has longer naps. Great book!

This book completely changed the way I looked at my childrens' sleeping 'problems', we are now SO much more relaxed around sleep and everyone sleeps through the night for the first time in years! We are expecting another baby in 9 weeks time and will be following the same philosophies with our new baby so that he will have the benefit of stress-free, normal sleep right from the start!
Thank you Elizabeth Pantley, I will and have continued to recommend this book to every parent and parent-to-be I know! :)
