We struggled with our little one after we got into some very bad habits when we went visiting family and after family visited us and gave us bad advice. I couldn't face using the "cry it out" method but couldn't find anybody to tell me about any other way...except The Sleep Store on their Facebook forum who recommended this book.
The first couple of chapters are a bit self-promoting and self-congratulatory but this seems to be how these sort of books work.
The actual content and the methods work. Really work. We went from our 9 month old waking every 1 to 2 hours, to now waking once, perhaps twice, during the night. We're still working on some issues that she has but the improvement is astounding. It takes time and probably more commitment than crying it out, but it's definitely a less traumatising way of encouraging baby to sleep well.
I would recommend this book to anybody with a baby, or about to have a baby. Throw all of the others away!

This book was such a relief to find. Even just having a constructive plan made me feel so much better. The author has been there and done it, and is understanding about how and why you are where you are, and supportive of you. She helps you create a plan, and to re-shape it, and help you get back to it if you go off track. short of having your own personal mentor, this is the best support you will find. I got some improvement in night wakings quite quickly, other things are taking more time. Highly recommend this book as a sanity saver! and good for your wee one too

We found that the techniques described in the book were really great for calming our baby ready to go to sleep, and gave us a great path to get from having to literally put her to sleep in our arms, to being able to teach her the tools to drop off herself. It was not a stressful path to go down and each step could be taken in our own time as she got used to the changes.
We found these techniques took us to a certain point in her sleep training, which we then were able to launch from to a slightly more tough love approach as she got older and we were more confident in letting her cry slightly once we recognised this was actually a last step in her nightly sleep routine.
I would definitely recommend the book if you are concerned about listening to your baby cry, because they don't with these methods. Our daughter actually suffered from reflux so I can only imagine that a baby without that added complication would achieve even better results with the training in this book.
