"I cannot praise this book enough - after less than a week of following the suggestions our baby of 9 months slept through the night for the first time (in our case he was behaving exactly in the same way as baby Leo in one of the book's case studies). It was great to have some concrete suggestions of things we could try as we were exhausted and just didnt know what to do. The non-judgmental tone of the book is also very welcome after some others we've looked at." - - Amazon.co.uk Customer Review
