This is the 3rd "No-Cry" book by Elizabeth Pantley that I have read, and like the other two, I have gotten a lot of useful information out of it. I've read many books on baby and toddler sleeping , but I think this one explains the importance of naptime the very best, including the biological and behavioral benefits. It also explains the science of napping and the sleep cycles in detail, which is very important to understand.

The book offers numerous suggestions for a very wide range of nap issues that parents might face with their children. It gives great advice for a lot of very specific problems (such as babies who only nap by falling asleep while nursing) that many of the other sleep books just do not address. I now feel armed with a lot of tools and ideas that I can try the next time my daughter (or next child) has a napping problem. I really wish this book had been available when my daughter was a newborn - it would have really helped me a lot back then.

The book is written in Elizabeth Pantley's customary style: kind, gentle, patient and supportive. Her "No-Cry" approach has always resonated with me, and I think any parent with young children will find this book extremely useful and helpful.

Ich gebe drei Sterne, weil das lesen des Buches zeitintensiv ist, da es nur eine englische Fassung gibt, was mich viel Konzentration gekostet hat. Leider gibt es zu diesem Thema kein deutsches Buch, was ich sehr schade finde, da wahrscheinlich viele junge Eltern das selbe Problem haben wie ich. Deutsche Literatur zum Thema kindesschlaf dreht sich nur um den Nachtschlaf und vergisst dabei die Wichtigkeit des tagschlafes für das Kind. Ein sehr informatives Buch, bei dem beim lesen das Verständnis für das Kind noch mehr wächst. Sehr viele Kreative Vorschläge das Kind am tag zum schlafen und weiterschlafen zu bringen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A must read for any parent 1. April 2009
Von P. M. Lupercio - Veröffentlicht auf
Did you know that studies have proven healthy sleep habits for your child now can directly impact their health for the rest of their lives? Or that a child not wanting a nap and not needing a nap are not one in the same?

But let's get real: While our intentions may be great, real life doesn't always allow for step-by-step approaches to getting our kids the daytime rest they need (and the sorely needed breaks we get while they nap!). Crabby kids, relatives popping in unannounced right before nap time, teething, upset bellies, that doctor appointment you can't miss, that 15 minute car nap that ruined little Johnny's afternoon siesta that led to an even more difficult bed time fight because he was so overtired...we've all been there, done that, and were all ready to pull out hair out by the end of the day.

There's a lot of great information in this book for parents of newborns through toddlerhood, and I made plenty of notes while I read. And there was also plenty of information that did not apply to our situation, some of which I skipped entirely and some of which I just skimmed (because I do plan on having another baby eventually!). But that is what is so great about Pantley's book: it's not a one-size-fit-all solution. Whether you co-sleep, nurse-to-sleep, stick to a by-the-clock schedule, or fly by the seat of your pants (like I do), you and your nap-fighting child will benefit greatly from the little bit of time it will take to sit down and read!

A few very important lessons I learned while reading Pantley's book included:

* My daughter needs 12 hours of sleep a night and 1 to 2 hours of nap time per day for 13 to 14 hours of sleep total. Oops! I had been cutting her short by about 2 hours. We have been working on remedying that situation and I am already noticing improvements.

* Night time sleep can help make up for naps but naps cannot make up for night time sleep.

* No matter what ANYONE tells you, newborns cannot be spoiled. So baby-wear, cuddle, and hug to your hearts content.

* I am not the worst mother in the world.

* What works for us is fine. A parenting expert says so. So if my daughter and I are happy with our she-holds-my-hand-until-she -falls-asleep-for-every-nap-and-bedtime situation, then so be it. It doesn't mean I am spoiling her and it doesn' mean I did something wrong. It just means that this is what is right for us. (I'm not sure why I needed an expert to tell me this to make me feel better, but thank you, Elizabeth. You don't know how much better this makes me feel.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Pantley won't undermine your confidence or make you think your baby is a failure! 14. April 2009
Von blue milk - Veröffentlicht auf
Elizabeth Pantley's No-Cry Nap Solution, like her original No-Cry Sleep Solution is packed full of ideas for worn out parents. Pantley is not one to give up on a problem and nor is she is one to go on endlessly about `her philosophy' - Pantley is about practical, creative ideas which can be adapted to your own instincts as a mother. She is the reassuring maternal figure you're searching for as a bewildered new parent, the one who won't undermine your confidence and won't make you think your baby is some kind of failure. Pantley's books are as patient in their problem-solving as the sleepless night is long.

The No-Cry Nap Solution covers all the usual infant and toddler sleep pattern information and then moves on to tackling some thorny napping problems - catnaps, nap resistance, shifting schedules, changing from in-arms sleep to in-bed sleep, changing car naps to bed naps, making the transition from motion sleep to stationary sleep, and falling asleep without the nipple/bottle/dummy. The book has really hit the mark with its smorgasbord of nap problems and I'd be surprised if you're experiencing a nap problem that isn't covered here. Apart from raising four kids herself, all that research Pantley has done with parents around the world has paid off!

I read this book free of the fog of sleep deprivation, and there was a point I reached where I found myself thinking lighten up mothers, let it go, it all eventually turns out ok, you don't need to be so damn obsessive about your baby's sleep. And you know what, this thought could only ever be entertained by someone who is getting enough sleep in her life and you know what else? Pantley even has this covered - there is a section in her book with advice for those of you who decide to lighten up and let go with your motherhood routines.

But be warned, the book probably won't deliver instant miracles. There are no sleep miracles with babies. The truth is babies don't sleep or nap in a way that fits neatly into the modern parent's lifestyle. Unless you're exceptionally lucky there are going to be some problems (and they will involve a little crying). But the good news is they won't last forever. If you want to gently manoeuvre your way through them then the No-Cry series is the one for you. And just as The No-Cry Sleep Solution was desperately needed by sleep-deprived parents, I suspect The No-Cry Nap Solution will be just as desperately needed by energy-deprived parents. Because I still remember how precious nap time was - how your child's nap was the only time in a day where you got the opportunity to re-charge. It is something very much worth striving for. Go for it, buy the book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen What a relief! 6. April 2009
Von Smiley Gal - Veröffentlicht auf
What did I like best about this book? Well, this quote from page 22 is probably it:

"Address only those problems that are true problems to you, and don't create or imagine problems because someone else thinks you have them, no matter if that person is family, friend, or expert."

It's a wonderful reminder that problems are only problems if you think they are and then it's up to you to decide what to do about them. Wow. What a relief! You don't often hear a parent. Usually everyone is trying to tell you what's wrong with how you do things.

My big concern was that my baby was nursing and then falling asleep for her naps. I thought this was a HUGE problem I had to fix. The thing was that I didn't feel like it was a problem; I just kept hearing that from various "expert" sources. Then, in the chapter on nursing to nap, Elizabeth says this:

"If your baby falls asleep nursing, drinking a bottle, or sucking a pacifier and then you are able to put him into bed where he takes a nice, long nap, then nothing needs to change." (page 154)

Another big sigh for me, as my baby was doing naps from 1 hour to over 2 hours in her crib or in our bed. Sure, sometimes the naps were shorter, but that was the exception and not the norm. And there was usually a good reason (such as a noise or the fact that she had had a longer nap earlier in the day and wasn't as tired).

After a lot of great general information on sleeping, napping, etc. in the first part of the book, there are then sections for newborns and older babies, as well as the types of challenges you are facing. You will not need to read the whole book to find solutions; you only need to read what's pertinent to you and your baby. What a great thing for time-constrained people like us parents!

The logs are great, especially the point of doing them every month or two rather than every week or two. This gives a more reasonable time for change and to see improvement. I did a log and came to the realization that the napping was going much better than I had thought. So, while it sometimes will help you spot the bad, the logging can also bring pleasant surprise. :) Still, I am trying some things and will do logs in a month or two to see if things have gotten better.

Lastly, one of my favorite things is that Elizabeth gets you to think of the less obvious, like does my baby sleep better with socks on or off? I hadn't thought to that level and thinking about things like that makes sense (and helps!)

This book, combined with the No-Cry Sleep Solution, have to be must-reads for any new parent to succeed in their new job of raising a happy, well-rested baby.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Some good ideas, but so called "pro-cry" books helped me find a no-cry solution better than Pantley did 26. April 2011
Von Alizabeth Szilagyi - Veröffentlicht auf
As with most parents, I read this book because I didn't enjoy the thought of leaving my little one to cry. Also, I started with this book (instead of her nighttime sleep book) because I felt my main problem was cat naps.

In brief (below is a more detailed explanation of the pros/cons list)

short and easy to read
a few helpful suggestions
relatively guilt free
sleep charts

no real plan
many suggestions are common sense or just plain fluff
uses little medical research to back her ideas
practically no guidance for people with serious sleep problems

Overall thoughts: As my title states, books that other mothers dub "cry it out" like Babywise (Ezzo) and Healthy Habits, Happy Child (Weissbluth) offer better suggestions and were much more helpful for me ... and I never used the cry it out approach. Weissbluth even agrees with Pantley's idea that cry-it-out will not work for all babies. He just offers it as a suggestion for parents willing and anxious to try it out.

This may be a good starting book for an expecting parent who has little experience with children, but if you are desperately and seriously looking for a solution to solve your child's sleep problems I'd look somewhere else. Just remember there is no one-size fits all program. Read several books and use the parts you like best. You are your child's expert.

***** Greater detail for those interested *****

I'll start with the good. I loved her suggestion to try lightly bouncing the baby's mattress in order to create the sense of "rocking to sleep." This totally worked for me. He still cried a bit at first, but I'd lay on the floor and sush and bounce and over the course of about a week there was no crying and no need to assist in putting to sleep. I was thrilled! After that success I decided I'd read the whole book. The other thing I appreciated was her approach. "You're not a bad mother if you have to rock or sing your baby to sleep. If it works for you and isn't a "problem" keep doing it." Reid is my first and I really didn't mind the time I spent putting him to sleep at night or for naps, and I noticed holding him through a nap or rocking him to sleep once or twice a week didn't mean he wouldn't go to sleep on his own the other 32 times. What a relief. I also liked her charts on appropriate sleep times and stages. Although, almost all books I've read on infant-sleep have similar charts.

Now, for the reason I don't "love" this book. Well, as my title states, I found books other moms have labeled "cry it out" or even "abuse" helped me find a no-cry sleep solution much easier and faster than either of Pantley's books did. Why? Well, a lot of her ideas are kind of common sense. She suggests a gradual removal of the sleep-to-suck association. You simply wait till baby is almost a sleep and then remove the breast or bottle and each day you gradually shorten the time for removal until baby can go to sleep without sucking. Really Pantley, you think you are the first person to come up with that idea? it's called weaning . . . it's been around for centuries. Also, her Pantley dance . . . I found "dancing" my child into his crib from my lab is just natural and common sense -- I don't need your very detailed (like 6 pages long) 8 step approach to teach me how to do this. Kind of fluff if you ask me. In fact, I'd tried a lot of her ideas long before I read her book (tracking sleep and moods through a chart, swaddling, etc) these ideas just felt like common sense when my baby started sleeping poorly.

Her main flaw may be that she has no real plan. I found other sleep books tell you to specifically follow an eat, play, sleep, eat, play sleep routine. Pantley tells you any sort of routine will do just fine. That wasn't so for me. If I put my little one down after eating he'd wake up in 20 minutes. This may work for others . . . but her really loose approach just offers too little guidance in comparison to other books. In her first book (which she refers to often in this book) she literally tells you to just pick a plan, any plan, and stick with it for 2 weeks and at the end of the two weeks see if it improved your situation. Well what if three days in things are worse? She offers very little guidance for parents with serious sleep problems.

She does talk about watching for sleep cues and trying an earlier bed time. But she doesn't go into great detail about either. I found Marc Wiessbluth's book (again, remember I never resorted to crying-it out) explained more appropriately why an early bedtime will help and why sleep cues are so important. He gave me the confidence I needed to trust my little one was tired and would sleep even if he was singing to himself and seemed alert when I laid him in the crib. Pantley had me constantly doubting myself because all her fluff makes it sound like anything and everything will work.

Overall, I think this nap book is much more helpful than her sleep solution book, so if you want to read a Pantley No-Cry book choose this one. But trust me when I say books like Babywise (Ezzro) and Healthy Habits, Happy Child (Weissbluth) were much more useful. I repeat, I did not use cry it out theories to "sleep train" my little one but those books were MUCH more helpful than this one. In fact, both those authors say cry-it-out won't work for everyone. They just offer it as one more solution. Ultimately, you're the parent that decides what suggestions you are going to try. For me, Pantley's aren't earth shattering. I preferred books written by real medical professionals using lots of medical research and more specific plans.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Highly Recommend this book! 5. Januar 2012
Von Jennifer - Veröffentlicht auf
This book saved me! I had a high need baby and I refused to let him cry it out, even though that's everyone was telling me to do. As a mother I knew that this was not something I was comfortable with but felt like I had no where to turn. Then I found The No-Cry Sleep solution and immediately knew what I was doing was "right".

I then purchased The No-Cry Nap Solution because I was only able to get my baby to nap for 30 minutes and he was obviously still tired. After using a few of Pantley's methods I was able to get him to sleep for 1 1/2 hours. Now after seeing many studies that are saying letting your baby CIO can be damaging to their health for the rest of their lives, I am so thankful for Elizabeth Pantley and her approach to helping us teach healthy sleep patterns in a kind way. I highly recommend this book!
