Brilliant - changed our lives! - Dolly200
This book and the forum that supports it helped us to get our lives back after 4 months of very little sleep. We were amazed how quickly our son was transformed into a brilliant sleeper.
Would recommend this for anyone who wants help getting their baby to sleep on their own without having to be pushed in the pram or have a dummy etc. The book simplifies and summarises a lot of the sleep training techniques you find in other books and puts them in a step by step guide.
I would say that you do need to review the website and forum as well. The book is just a guide and the website gives you more details and answers to more specific questions. Worth every penny!!!!
Life changing! - EHawthorne
Where do I start....? This book is amazing and saved me from what I thought was going to be a life time of sleepless nights! After 6 months of no sleep and my little boys sleep pattern getting progressively worse, I invested in Wendy's book and her online consultation. By night 3 my son was sleeping in his own bed from 7pm - 7am, without a night feed and I'd never felt better. My husband thinks Wendy is an angel and I have to agree with him. It's changed all of our lives for the better! The book is easy and quick to read and purely focuses on sleep so if it's sleep deprivation you're suffering from, buy this book! I will be and have been telling anyone who listens about it. Thank you Wendy! X
Brilliant! - Tim
Well worth the money! check out the website too, I can highly rate a private consultation. It has made a huge difference to me fiances confidence and in less than 10 days my son was going through the night. We'll probably keep hiring Wendy week after week!
From waking every hour in the night, to sleeping through the night within one week - KitKat
I have two words for the author of this book: Thank you!
The advice from this book, together with the online forum, has provided me with fantastic results and a very contented, happy baby and family- all of which were achieved within less than 7 days.
Before using this system, I had a baby who woke every 30 mins to an hour from 1am to 6am and I was feeling extremely tired. But, after reading the book and using the online forum, my baby is now able to fall asleep each night without me rocking her to sleep and without using me as a prop. After reading numerous books and articles about sleeping techniques with babies: Tracy Hogg's 'The Baby Whisperer', Gina Ford's 'The Contented Baby', various books by William Sears and numerous articles by leading psychologists, I came became overwhelmed by systems, solutions and ideas.
'The Baby Sleep System' by Wendy Dean offers a great overview of the 'systems' advocated by each leading author in one concise and easy to read book.
It is suitable for all parents - offering a 'no-cry' sleep solution (as advocated by Tracy Hogg), controlled crying, and solutions for those parents who fit within these two solutions (e.g. those who want to stay with their baby, but also would feel comfortable leaving them to cry a little). There are also solutions for parents with other children and for those parents with toddlers who have trouble waking in the night/going to sleep on their own - contrary to what one negative reviewer stated.
The book is also suitable for breastfed babies (contrary to another reviewer). My baby is exclusively breastfed.
The book does not claim to offer any new ideas; instead, it offers parents a quick read with fantastic results. It provides advice given from an experienced mother, who may not be a so-called 'expert' as another negative reviewer has stated, but the author doesn't claim to be.
The book, coupled with the online forum, offers excellent and, more importantly, personalised advice to parents. The forum feedback to questions has always, in my experience, been given withing 24 hours and regularly on the same day if you post before late afternoon.
Overall, the advice is straightforward and, most importantly, personal to you and your baby. The negative reviews on here give the wrong impression of the book and what the author and the mentors on the website are trying to achieve. I hope those of you who buy the book, find the 'system' that is right for you and your family and you achieve fantastic results like I have done.
