    GREAT book for understanding what is normal circadian rhythm for infants to prevent sleep problems and if sleep problems already exist, it gives practical advice for breaking it. Very helpful! Aug 11, 2019

  • Helped us get our son sleeping for 12 hours at 2 months! Jan 21, 2019

  • This book didn't really work for me but has worked for a lot of my friends. Dec 22, 2018

  • I LOVE this book and it's helpful to have a resource to help with any inevitable sleep problems that come up. It gives real, achievable solutions Oct 21, 2018

    Very informational with a lot of content. My baby is not due until November, but I think this book will definitely help me to get her on a sleep schedule quickly. Aug 02, 2018

    Super helpful for knowing how much sleep/nap to expect at different ages, and when to transition down on naps. Apr 08, 2018

  • It gave me some good advice for my first child. I did not have time to reread with #2+3 kids. Jan 24, 2018

  • I don't think the author was straight-forward at all. He would not say if crying is allowed, since there is so much controversy going around with the cry-it-out method. There are no plans, no tips Sep 28, 2017

  • This has been our practical bible for the past few months. Very helpful! Jun 22, 2017

  • Used this as my sleep-bible for both of my children. A bit heavy on the science/statistics, but the underlying messages are solid, and I've applied them to a lot of our sleep philosophies. May 10, 2017

  • This gave me GREAT advice without making me feel bad about what I was doing. Excellent resource!!! Jan 31, 2017

  • Lots of information and researched backed data.It is very useful but I had to skip some parts as the studies quoted can be quite hard to read(time consuming and boring as well) Jan 31, 2017

    This book helped us thru some not-so-intuitive steps of sleep training. We loved that it was based on actual sleep studies and factual data. Jan 02, 2017

    This book is too long. It will put you to sleep. What new parent has the time to read a 200+ page book on sleep. Apr 26, 2016

  • I found this book confusing and hard to read. Conflicting advice all over the place. May 07, 2015

  • This is my sleep bible.It's admittedly a bit (ok a lot) wordy and repetitive, but there's also a whole section where you can troubleshoot or read by age. So helpful. Jan 28, 2015

  • Helpful in understanding and establishing routine, the necessity of naps and quality sleep. Only wish I read this at the end of my pregnancy rather than 4 months PP. Dec 21, 2014

  • Way too dense, especially when you are already tired. I recommend Twelve Hours' Sleep by Twelve Weeks Old. Oct 23, 2014

  • This is a great balanced book to have. It has a ton of helpful information and i feel like it provides a balanced prospective. Oct 06, 2014

  • My sleep bible! Best advice for people who have different sleep approaches. He makes you feel like you can't go wrong. Oct 06, 2014

  • loved it when we felt totally lost + it worked for us. Jan 12, 2014

  • Good information about naps and sleep habits. Still trying to get my baby on a good sleep schedule but this book gives good insight on why it's important Jan 09, 2014

  • Sleeping is just as important as eating - great tips hidden in this book. Little hard to navigate and academically written, but great overall. Jan 01, 2014

  • Ehh the books are soo hard - good parts but in the end your baby isn't a text book baby so getting hung up on what should happen never does Dec 17, 2013
