My previous sleep book, and the predecessor to this one, is The No-Cry Sleep Solution. It provides answers to better sleep for children from the day of birth through toddlerhood. My youngest child was once a very frequent night-waking, all-night breastfeeding-baby. My experience learning how to help him sleep all night was once the incentive for me to write my first no-cry sleep book. Since then, I have corresponded with tens of thousands of parents, and I have expanded my research up through the preschool years to bring you this edition of The No-Cry Sleep Solution.
Because the magic of children is that they're all very different from one another, and that they're unique in their transitions from one stage of growth to the next, this edition of The No-Cry Sleep Solution crosses paths with the first for that in-between stage from baby to toddler. It then moves forward through the preschool years, and for lots of children, into the primary grades as well.
I hope to guide you along a gentle, peaceful journey to good sleep for everyone in your family.
