As a seasoned mother of 3, with baby #4 on the way, I feel qualified to review Elizabeth Pantley’s latest addition to her No-Cry Solution series – The No-Cry Sleep Solution for Newborns.
Bestselling author Elizabeth Pantley brings it home once again with exceptional advice on how to get amazing sleep from day one, for both you and your baby. I only wish I had this book with my first child. Perhaps I might have gotten some sleep during those first two years… *yawn*
Thankfully, 9 years and 2 more kids later, I have a pretty good grip on sleep solutions and I can tell you from my personal experience raising 3 children (soon to be 4) that I trust Elizabeth Pantley’s advice. Not only have I tried her methods in the past and found them to be quite effective, but I found that some of her methods in her latest book were things I was already doing and have worked very well for us!
What the professionals you know and trust have to say about her new book:
“Yet again, Elizabeth Pantley spins her baby magic! She towers above her competitors by showing us what babies really need, and how best to give it to them. She teaches us to take advantage of our infant’s innate capacities to sleep and reminds us to be open to the messages our babies whisper to us.”

“Well-presented, honest and evidence-based – this is the first book I have seen that translates scientific insights into a usable form for parents. Pantley recognizes that everyone is different, and a range of options is more valuable than a single “one size fits all” approach. I will be pleased to commend this book to parents.”
~ Professor Peter Fleming CBE
Professor of Infant Health & Developmental Physiology
University of Bristol
“The No-Cry Sleep Solution for Newborns is a brilliant guide for parents of infants. If you feel strongly, as I do, that newborns should be treated gently, their needs respected, and their parents supported, you will find much to like in this book. It will be a key resource for parents, and for those who seek to support them.”
~ Professor Helen L Ball, BSc, MA, PhD
Director, Parent-Infant Sleep Lab, Durham University

“Expectant and new parents, take heed! This is the one sleep book you need to read. It will set a pattern not only for better sleep, but also for a healthy, nurturing relationship with your children for a lifetime to come.”
~ Nancy Peplinsky, Ph.D.
Founder, Holistic Moms Network
“As a general pediatrician in practice for 35 years, Pantley’s advice has been my ‘go-to’ for parents. With her latest book she provides a game plan to have happier, more flexible infants and, yes, happier, calmer parents who can actually enjoy their new babies. I am seriously thinking about providing this book to all new parents.”
~ Edward D Lewis, MD, FAAP
