Marc Weissbluth's method (the pieces of advice he offers in his two books) is THE ONLY method that held my baby sleep. The baby was sleep deprived for 10 months. After 10 months of the extreme sleep deprivation, I gave a try to Marc Weissbluth's method. And miracles happened! The baby started sleeping through the night and taking consistent naps - varying in duration from 35 - 1.5 hours. If anyone has any questions about how we implemented Dr. Weissbluth's method, let us know - we'll be happy to answer them and help out.
We have used Dr Weissbluth's method in our family very successfully. This Kindle version is very convenient and easy to navigate when you need to reread certain concepts or guidelines. I highly recommend
This book is poorly written and jumps around a lot, but you get the idea and concepts behind the Weissbluth method. We have applied these concepts with our newborn and they work well. Every baby is different but a structured sleep schedule/pattern really does make a difference.
I love Marc Weissbluth's "Health Sleep Habits, Happy Child" -- it is the bible of child sleep, particularly infant sleep. However it is not an easy read -- I have read and re-read it a few times and still am sometimes unsure of what I "should be doing".
"Sleep Consult" contains much of the information found in HSHHC, but in a much more concise and user-friendly format. Not only is it more clearly laid out and organised, but it contains clearer guidance on "what to do", particularly regarding the early months, whether/when/how to let babies cry to sleep, and the use of "sleep aids" such as swings, pacifiers, swaddles.
People who are new to the Weissbluths' approach may still find this a little difficult, as the above review mentioned, but stick with it! The Weissbluths are far more knowledgable of empirical research on sleep than most sleep book authors, and they also make good use of their extensive clinical experience dealing with parents and babies to offer different advice for different types of babies and varied situations around family, daycare, work, etc.
NB: I actually bought the ibooks edition, but it would probably also be good in Kindle on a tablet. Not sure about on a native Kindle device, as it makes liberal use of hyperlinking, and I find hyperlinks on the non-touchscreen Kindle device are a bit difficult.
Not a total waste of money but still wish I hadn't bothered. Some points are good to keep you in track if you are already sort of doing this kind of sleep training. But hardly detailed in actual implementation or schedules. None of the apps are available anymore.
