Very funny and informative, gives parents lots of options

I chose this as my free trial audible book and I am so pleased with my choice! I have listened to a lot of sleep-related audiobooks and some of them are so drab and boring, mostly because they are not narrated by the author themselves. This author actually took the time to narrate a 8 hour long book and it makes such a difference! The tone and the humor makes those 8 hours go by fast instead of dragging on and on. And I definitely skipped some chapters that did not apply to my situation, something you can’t always do with other audiobooks so thanks Audible! There is so much good information in this book, that I think the hardest part is knowing what to apply to your specific situation. I have listened to several chapters but I am just now applying some of the strategies. Hopefully it helps!

Life changing

Baby went from having to be rocked and fed 7-9 times a night and fighting sleep to sleeping on her own with no tears and 1-2 wake ups in just 5 days! Amazing!

Waaaaaay too much filler

There is A LOT of repetition and filler information/jokes/stories that waste time when you’re trying to learn how to teach your baby to sleep. Time is already tight, listening to hours of nonsense to find the 1-2hrs of useful content is extremely infuriating.

not enough evidence

Not enough evidence behind her theories, not medically correct, promising too much she can't deliver. I will return this book.

Useless annoying book

I just want two hours of my life back listening to this nonsense. There is zero information on this book that is actionable and which won’t come up on the first page of a generic google search “how to make my baby sleep better”. The author think she is funny, she is mostly not, so you have to sit thru pages of jokes and listen to her uninteresting experience.

There is a lot of touchy-feely drivel but absolutely nothing new or subtantive which couldn’t be conveyed through 5 bullet bullets.

Lifesaver

Highly recommend this book to every expecting parent, yes, expecting. Do not wait until baby is born, read it beforehand so you can save precious time later.

Love the way this book is written, it funny and very insightful in the same time. It gives a lot of brilliant tips and explanation of common issues/situations. It helped our family a lot. Read it a few times, each time found something new and useful.

Not for me.

This book offers some useful techniques but ultimately encourages CIO. It doesn't consider the emotional maturity of the baby. Fuss it out at 2 months is not the same as your child crying aged 2 because you tell them they have to leave the sandpit. Babies are not born rational and with an innate ability to self soothe, they learn it over time. Some statements are contradictory, very anti co sleeping due to SIDS but encourages swaddling post 2 months.

Funny and well written/read, it offers one woman's opinions on sleep. Some of which are helpful but some of which go against nhs recommendations for sleep training. Not for me.

Amazing

I am only about half way through this book but I have to say so far it is simply amazing.
I swear Alexis Dubief has looked into my life at the moment and written a book about it to help me! She has made me beleive that I can take these steps to help baby and me sleep a lot better and that it is ok for baby to have a dummy and for me to lose my marbles from time to time.
Definatly a must read!!
