Publisher's Summary

Even Hollywood's biggest stars face the same dilemma as other parents do: "How do I get my child to sleep?" As parents in the know are finding, whether they're on the red carpet or the soccer field, the answer is the same: The Sleepeasy Solution.

Psychotherapists and sleep specialists Jennifer and Jill, the dynamic "girlfriends" all of Hollywood calls on to solve Junior's sleep problems, have perfected a sleep technique that will get any child snoozing in no time - most often in fewer than three nights. The key to their method? It addresses the emotional needs of both the parent and the child (yes, how to handle the crying!) - a critical component of why most other sleep methods fail.

In this much-needed, family-friendly guide, weary parents will learn to define their own individual sleep goals, those that work for their family's schedule and style. They'll create a customized "sleep planner" to ensure consistency with both parents as well as extended caregivers. (As an added bonus, they'll even improve the listeners' relationships with their spouses with the "marriage-saver" section.) With comprehensive sections devoted to each stage of Baby's and Toddler's development, plus solutions to special circumstances like traveling, daylight savings time, moving to a "big kid bed", and multiples, The Sleepeasy Solution is a dream come true!

    "Great information, light-hearted and encouraging"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Sleepeasy Solution to be better than the print version?

    No. I would prefer to have a print version so it's easier to flip through and refer back to specific parts by glancing at the titles rather than having to listen.


    What other book might you compare The Sleepeasy Solution to and why?

    There are other books and methods for getting your baby to sleep, but we have found that this one works best for us and our kids. I was very opposed to letting the baby cry at first, but after trying everything else, I realized it was the only thing that was going to make us happy and well-rested. After sleep training, my relationship with my oldest (about nine months) improved leaps and bounds; both of us were calmer and happier to see each other in the morning. With my second we sleep-trained at 5.5 months and he became a wonderful sleeper!

    Story
    "My 4 month old is sleeping better."
    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This is closer to Cry It Out than I would have liked but the tips they provide about desired schedule, preparing for bed and getting the sleeps space just right made a big difference without even getting to the CIO part. I asked my pediatrician before I tried this and the minute I mentioned sleep, she suggested this book (I had alread bought and listened to 2/3rds of it). The first night wasn't as rough as I feared and every night since has been a breeze. As suggested, I adapted it to what I thought would work best for me and my baby and didn't do the entire program exactly as recommended. However, I'm sleeping a little bit more and my baby is sleeping A LOT more. I miss comforting him every night, but I really believe he wasn't getting as much sleep as his little developing self probably needed before.

    "Excellent for new and experienced parents"
    What made the experience of listening to The Sleepeasy Solution the most enjoyable?

    The vast range of topics covered apart from just sleep and excellent tips shared.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Sleepeasy Solution?

    So many but will choose my 2 favorite moments that I heard today: the use of using a Lovey (stuffed toy or blankey) with your child to help soothe them and creating a photo book/album just for your infant to view when Mommy or Daddy are away from them.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Again so many but have to say congratulating parents for surviving months 1 through 4 which can be the most challenging.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Essentials for embarking parenthood


    Any additional comments?

    Learned lots from this book and would highly recommend to new parents and even experienced parents. I'm sure I will listen to this many times as reference!
