This is what my children used to think. Seriously, I have terrible sleepers. Always have. Seth was the worst though. When he was about 9 months old my friend Vanessa told me about Elizabeth Pantley's No Cry Sleep Solution. I went right out and bought it. Anything that involved sleeping and not crying? Something that was gentle, yet effective?? Oh yeah, I was ALL over that. It totally worked. He would sleep for more than 30 minutes at a time. It was heaven! I was sleeping at night and was such a nicer Mommy. I have used the techniques she teaches with Amelia and am ready to crack open the book again for a refresher course for Miss Libby. She doesn't stop with sleep for the newborn though. She has gone on to write 4 more books!
- The No-Cry Sleep Solution for Toddlers & Preschoolers
- The No-Cry Potty Training Solution (I SO need this one right now also!!)
- The No-Cry Discipline Solution
- The No-Cry Nap Solution *NEW*
Will your child only nap in your arms, in a swing, or after elaborate rituals? Does your child take cat naps -- or none at all? Let world-renowned, trusted parenting author Elizabeth Pantley help you. She’ll guide you with the same sensitive expertise and gentle approach used in her other No-Cry bestsellers about sleep, discipline and potty training.
Research proves that daily naps improve health, mood, growth, intelligence and well-being. Yet children often resist the naps they need and parents don’t know how to make them happen. The results are fussy, crying babies and cranky, grouchy kids who also have trouble sleeping at night!
In The No-Cry Nap Solution Pantley explains to parents of children ages newborn to kindergarten the importance of napping to both behavior during the day and sleeping during (and through!) the night. She then shares with you her gentle, loving child-friendly techniques--tested on families of all sizes and circumstances--and shows you how you can customize her solutions for your own family.
Pantley addresses issues such as children who resist naps, dealing with schedule changes, turning short naps into longer ones, helping a child go from needing motion for sleep to “stationery” sleep, nursing at naptime, daycare-related napping problems, newborn “in-arms” or “in-sling” napping issues, and much more.I don't know about you all, but this book is RIGHT UP MY ALLEY!!!! I think this is definitely one that will be added to my library, and SOON! Here's to a good night's sleep...I know we all need it.
