The No Cry Sleep Solution Book

The No-Cry Sleep Solution


By: Elizabeth Pantley
$16.95

Elizabeth Pantley is another advocate of the no-cry approach to sleep training. She believes in a gentle and gradual approach to sleeping through the night that is customized to your baby's needs.

Like Sears, Pantley believes in attachment parenting and a consistent nap and bedtime routine. She believes you should rock and feed your baby to a point or drowsiness before putting him down. She also believes you should respond immediately to his cries. Her six-phase process to helping your child learn to sleep in his crib requires the use of sleep logs, nap logs, and night-waking logs to help you understand your baby's natural sleep cycle.

The "Persistent Gentle Removal System" is her plan to help your baby fall asleep on his own and revolves around his bedtime feeding. She suggests a system of gently removing him from bottle or breast when he gets drowsy and he will eventually learn to fall asleep on his own.

Pantley's method is dependent on a strict routine. It takes a lot of patience, but many believe it is worth it for the no-cry aspect.
