This book was empowering and affirming. It provided me with evidence-based research to support my approach to sleep, an approach that does not adhere to the cry-it-out method staunchly supported by sleep trainers. Indeed, I was better equipped to confidently challenge sleep trainers after reading this book. This book did not provide effective tips for me to help my child to sleep longer, but it did provide a more long-term understanding of the effects of gentle parenting, day and night. I recommend it.

I completely agree with the critic above: "Pediatricians and most parents will cry foul over this one, and rightly so. Purchase with extreme caution, as this lacks adequate research consensus and could easily be paranoia-inducing, exhausting, and guilt-provoking." The authors are quick to criticize the sleep training research they cherry picked to make their arguments appear more legitimate, while simultaneously failing to provide evidence based research in support of their own position. The word "science" should be removed from the subtitle of this book, as it is very misleading. Very disappointed with this book.
