I read this book which was given to me by my mother in law and I didn't start the routines until my son was around 3/4 months old as i found at that age he understood, before then i didnt do it as i felt my baby was still learning to trust me. I believe as a mother you still need common sense and to trust your gut feeling so those who knock this book either lack common sense or are just arrogant because the author doesn't have kids.
In my mothers group, Im the only mother who's child sleeps from 7pm to 7 am every night without fail. I also happen to be the only person who has followed the routines in this book. My baby is very content and happy and smiles all the time because I'm also very happy and get lots if sleep! This book has made motherhood extremely easy and enjoyable for me.
I believe post natal depression is contributed partially to lack of sleep. When your baby learns to self settle it is fantastic!

I have read a few bad reviews of this book, and without a lie, this IS THE FIRST REVIEW I HAVE EVER WRITTEN, I am so passionate about this book, that I choke up, just thinking how my life would have been without it..... After having 2 children on it, my daughter is now 3 1/2 and my son is 10 months, I find it bamboozling how it can get a bad review. I have recommended it to several friends, who, have thanked me over and over and over for the miracle it created in their lives. When my daughter was 3 months old, I was going crazy.. what do I do, when do I do it, how long do I let her sleep etc etc.. .. I wanted to drive away in the car and never come back, that's how insane I was.. I was lost, no where, in a daze.. it was awful. Then a friend of my husbands gave me this book.. then my life turned around.

I know now why some people can't get it.. you need to be tough, in the sense that babies will scream at you when they're not getting their way... but she explains this to you, she identifies a 'protest' from an 'emotion' and how to deal with both.. it just makes sense. Tizzie even interprets their protests into English, which is superb.. because when they are protest crying it gives you the strength and tools to understand what they are saying.. ie (this is my loose memories of how she explains it, and what I used to imagine them saying)... "get back here Mum, you're supposed to be here to pick me up WHEN I SAY SO.. so get back here NOW.. why aren't you here yet... GET BACK HERE!!!"

My daughter from 3 months has slept from 7pm to 7am. It's like clockwork, no effort, went from cot, to bed on her own, never has slept with us, transferred no problems.. but this is all thanks to Tizzie, and her second book for Toddlers. She talks you through exactly what to do, when to do it, and problems that may arise and how to deal with them. Tizzie even explains what temp to have the rooms, how much bedding/sleep wear to put on them.. why do women try and reinvent the wheel as soon as they have a baby (I was one of them, I know.. I was 35 when I had my daughter, and thought I could do it all.. ha,ha, ha).... this woman has made it easy for us..

I could write an entire thesis on the program she has created, I really could.. but be prepared, and be strong.. and in no time at all your children just sleep, exactly when she says they will.. she truly is a whisperer..

I've read it (and some other books) and I have practiced it - I have one of the happiest and most content toddlers now and at 16 months am still breastfeeding. From some comments here I feel that people did not read it properly - for example: No, there isn't the advice to let the baby screem - she clearly differentiates "complaining" (as a mother you should know this) and "I have an real emotional or physical need". I have met so many mothers who "didn't care about a routine" and then later (at latest with the 2nd child) they desperately try to do it. I personally know examples.

I'm not sure about the other comments as maybe I took something different from this book. Hall does not promote control crying, in fact it says in the book she is against it (p. 75). I think people have just read the routines, without putting them into context. A friend leant me her copy & I'm so grateful.
My son has never sobbed himself to sleep and relishes in the routine. He started sleeping through the night at 10 weeks and feels safe in his cot (wakes up singing and talking). I feed on demand & I am still breast feeding at 6 months. If you believe in co-sleeping, dummies and rocking your baby to sleep then this book is not for you. If you like consistency and in tune with your baby (e.g. can tell the difference between noises made) then it is brilliant.
Yes, some of it should be taken with a pinch of salt. If my son sleeps past 7am I don't wake him (I rejoice! ha ha!) and every day is different but that's parenting!

When Tizzie Hall wrote this book she had no children of her own.
Why do so many people read this book? It's not natural or safe for a little baby to 'sleep through the night', it's natural for them to wake often. It's cruel to let your baby cry for hours. Try Pinky McKay's 'Sleeping Like a Baby' (plus all her other books are great too). Or Elizabeth Pantley's 'The no-cry sleep solution' (her other books are also great). These two authors both have 3+ kids of their own.
