Invaluable guide to breaking bad sleep habits and creating new better ones. Sequel to the original No Cry Sleep Solution, it's heartily recommended to all parents.

This book really helped me work out our childs sleep patterns. It took time but thats what good things do. Our Fussy baby sleeps really well all night and for that we are very greatful. I am also very mindful of the "No Cry" part as the development of a childs brain is very important.

Nothing ground-breaking here, but there were a few good reminders about healthy sleep habits for this age group. It was also very easy to read, which I appreciated since my toddler's sleep habits have eroded my ability to concentrate.
