Anyone read this book? If you followed it, did it work for you?

I really want Max to learn to just fall asleep on his own when there is a lot going on around him. He seems do it at home, but that's when it's just him and I. When people are over, he seems to interested in what's going on, then he gets overtired and then the screaming starts. I want to NOT have to rock him to sleep all the time and I would love for him to be out more. Also, he seems to want to only sleep in his swing, which I can't bring every where with me. I don't know. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I read it with my first one. I found the tips on how to catch the sleepy signs and the info on sleep cycles pretty interesting. The info on 4 months and older seemed too CIO like and harsh to me. Have you looked into no cry sleep solution? That is also about getting a baby to fall asleep on their own but without the crying.

we have the same issues. I try to not keep it quiet here, but he just doesn't sleep well. When we go out he is a miserable mess because he can't sleep well when we are out and about

I just started reading this book and love it! I was pleasantly surprised to see that I was already doing some of her methods without evening knowing it, but I am learning lots of new things. It talks about how babies form sleep associations and how to use that to your benefit. I highly recommend it!

Also-about him only sleeping in the swing, he probably likes to be at an incline, have you tried the fisher price rock n play sleeper? Thats where I have Sophie sleeping now, because she also likes to be at an incline. It is more portable than a swing and I think will be an easier transition when we move to the crib. HTH
