El Sueño Del Niño De Dos A Seis Años Sin Lágrimas
Guaranteed to help parents reclaim sweet dreams for their entire family
New from the bestselling author of the classic baby sleep guide!
Getting babies to sleep through the night is one thing; getting willful toddlers and energetic preschoolers to sleep is another problem altogether. Written to help sleep-deprived parents of children ages one to five, The No-Cry Sleep...more
There seems to be a gap between baby sleeping books and toddler sleeping books. Many of the the author's examples and references were of older toddlers, children that can carry conversations and have opinions. My child still can't tell me why ...more
Kind, gentle and realistic, Pantley explains that every family is different and there are many great ways to approach sleep. She gives calming reassurance and praise. She understands ex ...more

My only real objection was that the author was aggressively non-judgmental about practices and ideas that I personally find objectionable and potentially dangerous, such as by listing homeopathy and "craniosacral therapy" (very light h ...more
I write this as my kid is in bed. On time. Without a battle tonight. Even though we were out this evening at a Valentine's Day party. We left a little early to get home and get our routine underway. Making small evening sacrif ...more
This was a refreshing read, compiling what is known about sleep and presenting realistic options. If I had read this one first when I had my first child twelve years ago, I would have known to steer clear of the "my way or the highway" kid and baby sleep books.
I am still in the middle, but I agree it's good. It's a very quick read for a longer book. I am also finding that many things she suggests we are already doing, or are naturally occuring as my child gets older, so while those are things we can't add, it does reassure me that we are doing things correctly, as well as show that her ...more
It looks like much of the book advises staying with the kid until they fall asleep. Maybe it's fine for other kids, but that really didn't work for us, because he takes SO LONG to fall asleep, and he demands it again EVERY TIME he inevitably wakes during the night. We end up exhausted and frustrated.
But pages 134-137 have two good suggestions on ways to wean the child away from needing a pare ...more
Every parent has a different parenting style. From co-sleeping, baby-led-weaning, baby-carrying, home-birthing, cloth-nappy-wearing parents (I think of this as left-wing parenting) to the cry-it-out, bottle-fed, into-childcare-at-six-weeks parents (I think of this as right-wing parenting). The reality is, like politics, that the vast majority of people are somewhere in the middle (I'm centre-left). Elizabeth Pantley doe ...more
As far as the advice goes, this one was easy for me to like because we already ...more
This book, combined with Good Night, Sleep Tight The Sleep Lady's Gentle Guide to Helping Your Child Go to Sleep , Stay Asleep, ...more
But basically -- just avoid any book that says "no-cry." It means "we will talk about offering a boob anytime there's a problem," or "have you thought about keeping your child's room dark?"
Anytime you're having sleep issues with your child, whether you're an advocate of the cry it out method o ...more
What I appreciate most is the honesty. Pantley does NOT promise an instant cure, rather she helps parents get a clear picture of age appropriate behavior, and offers a wide variety of possible solutions that can be implemented as a system that will work over time.
Although our sleep problems are not cured, after only two weeks, the situation is already better. We've started ...more
