From the Author

Through months of research, personal experience, and working with 60 test case families, I have assembled and organized a wide variety of gentle ways to help your baby sleep through the night. The ideas do not involve letting your baby cry — not even for a minute. You are going to create a customized plan for your own family based on the ideas, all within a simple and easy-to-follow framework. It’s a method that is as gentle and loving as it is effective.

I don’t imagine babies should be left alone to cry themselves to sleep. Or even left to cry as you pop in every 10 minutes to murmur comforting words without reaching out to touch them. But I also know that you’ll be able to — gently and lovingly — help your baby to sleep peacefully all night long. So give The No-Cry Sleep Solution a try, and plan on seeing some wonderful sleep results.
