The Baby Sleep Solution: A Proven Program to Teach Your Baby to Sleep Twelve Hours a Night
Full of common sense and specific tips, the Baby Coach's plan offers time- and family-tested techniques to help any baby up to the age of 18 months who has trouble sleeping through the night. Originally developed for newborn multiples, this sleep-training method worked so well with twins and triplets that families with singletons and older babies began asking Suzy to share her recipe for success, resulting in: This edition includes a new chapter on implementing the program with babies up to 18 months.

At this stage, for a parent of a month-old Either this author has never had a kid, or was a real asshole to their own. Jun 13, Lilly rated it really liked it Shelves: It's a quick, non-preachy read.
Apr 05, Phil Jensen rated it did not like it Recommends it for: At first, I read this book as a piece of awkward, foolish, unintentional comedy. I read the really bad parts out loud to my wife and sarcastically suggested that we try them. Then, I looked at the Amazon reviews and discovered that people had actually harmed their children by using Giordano's terrible, terrible ideas.
It's not so funny, now. Suffice it to say that your natural instincts are correct and that you can trust your baby's body to cue you to their needs much more than you can trust this At first, I read this book as a piece of awkward, foolish, unintentional comedy. Suffice it to say that your natural instincts are correct and that you can trust your baby's body to cue you to their needs much more than you can trust this book. If you want some useful advice for infant sleep, I strongly recommend The Happiest Baby on the Block. At one point in this book, Giordano suggests that "if you choose to feed your baby from your breasts," then you should halt each nursing session after a specific number of minutes.
Are you going to accept breast feeding advice from a person who is too uncomfortable to use the actual term "breast feeding? Any nursing mother who attempts to use the strategies in this book will be switching to formula in a matter of days. Dec 11, Stephanie rated it liked it.

This theory is basically: Go in if they are still crying after 3 mins, help them settle again, do it over again. Don't pick them up, don't feed them. She says it will take 3 days for new babies, and 7 for older babies and they will be sleeping 12 hours a night. I am not sure about feeding a baby especially an infant on This theory is basically: I am not sure about feeding a baby especially an infant only 4x a day.
It seems to me that if they are hungry, you should feed them, not make them wait. Also, the schedule seems super strict. I think a schedule is good for any body, but it should have a little wiggle room Maybe I just want the easy way out, but I guess anything you want takes a lot of work right? She also has a section about vacationing, sickness, and other circumstances and how to deal with them.
I found that section very helpful. Despite all the negative things I just said, I think out of all the methods that I have read so far, this one seems like the one I roll with the best. We will see how Heather rolls. Jul 12, Erika rated it liked it. The premise seems easy enough.
I just feel like some babies will do things when they are ready, not when they are trained and especially not at such a young age. Going to give it a go, since this is the second book I've read that has suggested spacing out day time feedings to four hours in between each one. Sep 03, Nicole rated it did not like it Shelves: This book seemed great until I experienced the joy and physiological rightness of bed sharing. It feels so right! Jul 19, Beth rated it it was ok. This seemed too good to be true, because it is. I cannot get my baby to eat 6 ounces in one sitting.
Also the author wants to let them cry too much for my liking. They are tiny babies. Her method probably works for formula fed babies if you follow all her steps. But I cannot emotionally do it. Also she loses a lot of points for suggesting things that are harmful. This is not recommended and has been linked in scientific studies to allergies, obesity and diabetes later in life.
She also suggested putting baby on stomach, which yes will probably help them sleep, but also increases risk for SIDS, as does adding a loose blanket or toy as she also suggests. Also she wants you to have baby alone in crib in own room starting day 1-also not recommended. With breastfeeding if you follow this plan it would be very hard to keep your supply up enough, or you would at least wake up in the morning with painful rocks on your chest.
Also difficult to get a daycare center to space feeding out every 4 hours. Overall the theory should work, but personally not practical for me. Jan 20, Kalisha Grimsman rated it did not like it Shelves: I read this book looking for some new sleep training ideas and was excited about the idea of having your children sleep through the night at 12 weeks.
As someone who was successful at getting young twins to sleep well with other methods I will definitely not be implementing this method and do not think that it is right for us and our family. Mostly I think that it is not based off of age-appropriate expectations. Having babies eat only every 4 hours in the day and reducing their night feeds so e I read this book looking for some new sleep training ideas and was excited about the idea of having your children sleep through the night at 12 weeks.
Having babies eat only every 4 hours in the day and reducing their night feeds so early is just not reasonable at this age.
A Step-by-Step Plan for Baby Sleep Success
I think it can happen, naturally, when kids are ready for it much closer to the Babywise timeline. Also, I definitely do not recommend the nap schedule laid out. Babies this young need at least 3 naps, probably 4 every day, not 2. I'm glad this program worked for some people but I would not recommend it. Jul 31, Abbey rated it it was amazing. Great information that makes a lot of sense. I have been researching sleep training from the get-go in prep for baby 4 to hopefully preserve my sanity as a mom.
Having gone through trial and error with 3 other kids with some success, I really like what she has to say.
She reinforced some of my own ideas about sleep training while giving me a more structured approach to how to implement it for a young infant. I can see how it would be super helpful for parents of twins or multiples! It was a fas Great information that makes a lot of sense. It was a fast read and easy to understand and skim through if needed.
Jun 21, Mary-Walker Hall rated it it was ok. There were some things I found helpful in this book, but overall I didn't like the plan. My twin girls love to snuggle with me and I don't want to stop that yet. Some babies do better with cuddling and some want to just be set down to sleep.
Also, you can't force a breastfed baby into eating only 4 times a day at such a young age. You shouldn't put cereal in a bottle either or give infants lovies yet! Sep 06, Amanda rated it did not like it Shelves: Really geared to the non-breastfeeding family, I think. Unnecessarily harsh, in my opinion. No real nuance, flexibility, or consideration for the baby. With lots of caveats about how we didn't do this until four months, I didn't night wean and I don't care about twelve straight hours of sleep.
But getting on a feeding schedule and then doing a gentle cry-it-out method is really working for us. Great book for a simple sleep training program. I think we figured it out but would have been nice. May 21, Koh Wei rated it really liked it. Now to see if it works Feb 28, Emily rated it liked it. If I had read this book before giving birth or during those first weeks, I think it would have been really helpful. With an almost eight month old though, the advice was nothing I hadn't heard in some form or another. I wish the section on older babies had been much bigger and more detailed.
Mar 12, Kylene rated it liked it. I'm not sure how to rate this book. I loved that it was a super quick read and her methods are simple to understand. However my baby only meets 2 of the 3 requirements in order to start the training. So since I can't start the training, I can't rate the book. I'll update when we get to that point. I have to admit I am skeptical as this book does seem harsh on babies. But then again it would be so nice to be on a predictable schedule. Okay, so I'm re-rating this book, but keeping it at 3 s I'm not sure how to rate this book.
Okay, so I'm re-rating this book, but keeping it at 3 stars. I like the methods the author uses to get the baby to sleep. However, I just think having the baby sleep for 12 hrs a night by the time they're 12 weeks old is just too soon. I think you need to feel out your own baby and go along with what feels right to you. You are the parent. You know your child better than anyone else. My daughter sleeps about hours straight at night most of the time She is sleeping better and both she and Mommy are less cranky. Basically, I think that any sleep method will work, depending on the personality and temperment of the baby and the parents.
Sometimes doing a combo of a few different methods will work best for you. Oct 05, Haley Medlin rated it liked it. I was waiting till after I had my baby before reviewing! She's 10 weeks old now and has been sleeping through the night for most of the past week. Who knows, but I think some of the premises in this book were useful.
That being said, like many parenting books, this was one where I would pick and choose what I thought would work for my child.

It is more difficult to apply the full training method as intended if you want to exclusively breastfeed as long as possible, and only plan to get baby on t I was waiting till after I had my baby before reviewing! It is more difficult to apply the full training method as intended if you want to exclusively breastfeed as long as possible, and only plan to get baby on the bottle when you are returning to work for example , like I was.
It also does not really take into account growth spurts where you may need to feed baby more often, and baby's attempts to increase milk supply. For example, when baby was starting to stretch feelings on her own, like going from one to zero feelings at night , she would cluster feed in the evenings before bed to increase my milk supply at that time of day in order to help her get through the night.
It was important to let her do that. So basically, apply this book flexibly and you should be okay. About Lisa Abidin Lisa Abidin is the mother of twins. Inspired by Your Browsing History.
