Useful but a little stress-inducing too. I went into this book because i've been very interested into parenting books and the likes, since i've become a mom, and even if my son doesn't really have troubles sleeping, i'm always looking into different ways on how to just do things the best way I can for my baby. But though I thought that Tracy Hogg's advice were handy and helpful it was also very limited. I'm just a very anxious type of person so if my son's profile didn't fit the pattern describe ...more

informative read but I do agree with some of the other reviews about the author playing blame on parents and also inducing some stress. most of what I've gleaned from this and other sleep training tips and method is that they all emphasis having a routine. what type of routine seems to be based on what works best but promotes sleep time. although my baby is only 5 weeks old and too young to sleep train, I've noticed she does respond to having a darkened area, especially at night, with sleeping. ...more

Useful, well worth the Kindle price, but also anger-inducing in that it seems to blame parents for all babies' sleeping problems. I can almost picture the author rolling her eyes at her clients. "You DON'T have your baby on a 4-hour feeding schedule?" Kind of condescending but also has helpful tips. I would pick some recs and ignore others, such as having a baby fall asleep ON A PILLOW on the floor and then transferring both to a crib. Pick up/put down method very helpful! I did s modified versi ...more

As with most parenting books you have to judge what works for you, your partner, your child and all the many variables. This book comes across quite no-nonsense, you want to be fairly confident I your parenting to be able to take away the information without crumbling under the ideas of trust, comfort and weak will-power. Whilst the EASY routine was something appealing there are other tips that were not. I think it is important to note this book was published a while ago and new parents should t ...more

The book gave a lot of useful, practical information that may appear to be common sense, but in the heat of the "crying" moment we parents forget. Tracy Hogg came across as a kind soul who loved and respected people of all ages. I really appreciated that she did not take a hard line on breastfeeding and admitted that it is more important for families to do what is necessary for them.

Good quick read that gives me some tools to consider with my 9-mo old. She has never been a great sleeper and I think this book will help. I have not yet tried her techniques, but they seem logical and I would feel comfortable with helping my little one to sleep in such a gentle and reassuring way.

Life-changing!!! Short, sweet and straight to the point. Her methods aren't easy but they're effective and don't involve traumatizing your baby by having him "cry it out" on his own. My 5 mo old has never napped in his crib, and 2 days after picking up this book he's napping in it as I type!

A very quick read. Lots of useful tips and great to keep as reference. I'm still pregnant and so don't know exactly how useful it will be but it seemed to make a lot of sense.

A great quick, to the point book on sleep. Using the tools instantly transformed our 10 week old from a terrible sleeper to a great one. Best $3.99 I ever spent!
