Health Communications, Inc. | April 1, 2007 | Trade Paperback

The Sleepeasy Solution: The Exhausted Parent's Guide to Getting Your Child to Sleep from Birth to Age 5 is rated 5 out of 5 by 8.

Two experts who are helping Hollywood''s A-list babies get their zzz''s share the no-fail, family-friendly method that has helped thousands of sleep-deprived moms and dads.

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 their 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 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 readers'' 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 saving''s time, moving to a "big kid bed" and multiples, The Sleepeasy Solution is a dream come true!

"This approach was truly amazing in helping our family to thrive. . . . We are eternally grateful!"
-Ben Stiller and wife, Christine Taylor, actors

"With their gentle approach, Sleepeasy gave us the tools we needed to solve our daughter''s sleep problems."
-Conan O''Brien, host of NBC''s Late Night with Conan O''Brien

"Sleepeasy gave us all the tools we needed to get our baby sleeping through the night. Now when we say good night to our daughter, we know it really will be a good night."
-Greg Kinnear, actor

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Sleep Book Ever! After reading many other books, this one was recommended to me by a sleep psychologist. I love that there is a workbook and a step by step guide rather than just theory. My son starting sleeping though the night after three days and now sleep 11 hours at night and 3-4 hours during the day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I bought this book out of desperation. By 7 months my son was sleeping in stretches of 20 mins only... if we got 1 hr without him waking up, we were happy. I followed this book to the letter and as advertised, my son quickly turned around and started sleeping. Today... he sleeps/naps well and I still refer to the book because developmental milestones affect sleep and you always have to tweak or adjust as he grows. He's 18mths now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miraculous! I cannot say enough about this absolutely fantastic book. After only two nights our 5 month old son went down without crying at all. I'm only in the beginning stages but so far so good! The way this book is written is very reader-friendly and you really feel as though the authors truly understand how exhausted parents feel. I love how there are tips for when you are travelling or for time changes, and that they cover from 4 months to age 5. This is a must have for any parent. Buy it for everyone you know.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hallelujah it Works!!! For eight months we have been challenged by our new daughter's sleep patterns, or lack there of. We had decided to be 'no cry' parents and looked at resources provided by Dr Sears and the Baby Whisperer. We found Dr Sears too vague (with respect to sleep, other resources are very valuable)and the Baby Whisperer just made us feel like we had completely failed as parents. The Sleepeasy Solution provided some quite prescriptive advice, pointed out some of the things we might have been doing wrong WITHOUT the denegrating tone of the Baby Whisperer. After one slightly difficult night of a few crying spells, we saw immediate improvements in our daughter's sleep. She still stirs from time to time in the night, but knows how to get herself back to sleep and I am finally remembering what it is like to sleep for most of 8 hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very helpful! I loved this book. After reading Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child I was frustrated and confused about how to get my child to sleep without tons of crying. I went in search of a new book and found the Sleepeasy Solution. It is VERY well written, organized nicely and is easy to understand. The authors understand how hard it is to listen to your child cry and their "least cry solution" really works. My daughter cried for an hour the first night but then after that it was only a few minutes or not at all. By checking in on her as the book suggests, I felt better and I believe she did too. The book covers all ages from 0-5years and even covers special situations like daylight savings. It also has a Q&A section that covered a lot of questions I had. I would highly recommend this book for those who have tried other books that didn't work. You will be glad you did!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A life saver! We used this book to help our 5 month old learn to fall asleep. As with all methods the first few nights were bumpy, but as the book says we had results within the first 5 days. Our daughter is now almost 8 months old and can fall asleep on her own without much fuss, even through teething! I've also found this book a great resource for milestones and how to deal with them in relation to sleep. As well the authors were very helpful and responded to emails within hours of writing them for suggestions. I totally recommend this method if you are looking for help!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must for Your Parenting Library Absolutely one of the best books I've read on helping your child to sleep! Not only was this book informative well organized and easy to read, it brought home my own personal struggle with my third born child twenty years ago. Finally I understand how we were contributing to the problem! I wish I had had this available to me then. I give it a resound thumbs up! A “must read” for any parent struggling with getting their child to sleep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A True Lifesaver!! I purchased a copy of this book after 6 months of waking up every 1-2 hours with my baby. After implementing the sleepeasy solution my baby was sleeping through the night after only 5 days. I was extremely impressed and would highly recommend this book to anyone in a similar situation.

About the Book

Two experts who are helping Hollywood's A-list babies get their Rzzz'sS share the no-fail, family-friendly method for millions of sleep-deprived moms and dads. Their technique addresses the emotional needs of both the parents and children up to age five, a critical component of success, and why other sleep methods often fail.

Read from the Book

Excerpts from The Sleepeasy Solution No-Cry Versus Crying It Out Most parents wanting to make changes with their child''s sleep have heard all the debates about allowing a child to cry. This has led to a lot of confusion. Some of the methods that promise "no-cry" solutions suggest to parents that their child wonÆt ever cry. The idea is that being ôgentler and more responsiveöùcontinuing to soothe your child by patting, picking her up, holding her hand, and the likeùmeans that she is less traumatized. Ironically, though, parents often report that the child still cries even while they continue to attend to her; all children protest change, and the way they let us know they don''t like the change is to cry. As important as it is for parents to express love to children through physical touch, and as illogical as it may seem that doing so while helping a child learn to sleep is counterproductive, it is indeed the parent''s touch that can exacerbate a child''s frustration in this scenario. The result? The child often continues to struggle with sleep, usually for weeks or even months, because she is not being allowed to learn how to soothe herself . With older children, using touch can be especially detrimental, as it tempts them to continue testing limits with you, to keep pressing until you cave in and help them to sleep. WeÆve found that when using these kinds of "hands-on" methods, parents often give up on sleep learning because it takes so long to actually get better sleep that
