Elizabeth Pantley sent me a copy of the “No Cry Sleep Solution” for toddlers and preschoolers for review and give-away on Nurshable.
Way back when I only had one child, I owned a copy of this book that eventually got lost in a move. It was one of the things that influenced my choice to “Wait it Out” with each of my children, and many of the strategies that Elizabeth outlines went on to become part of how I approach the question of “what can I do to promote healthy sleep while I wait for my child to be ready to be a better sleeper?”
This book is very much in line with my approach to sleep. It normalizes infant sleeping (or non-sleeping) behavior, identifies true “problems” that require solutions, and offers many different suggestions that can help mom and dad encourage healthy sleeping habits that will eventually result in sleep on a gentle child-led schedule. It is one part reassurance and two parts proactive strategies for stretching out what your child is able to accomplish sleep-wise.
I’ll be reviewing this book in this space, but figured that a fun way to run the give-away would be to have people submit questions that they want the review to answer. One entry per question, in the order of the comments submitted. The winner will be chosen by a random number generator and the book will be shipped out in about two weeks after the winning entry is chosen. (Since I will have to read the book in order to answer the questions and review it.)
