It Worked!

Any additional comments?

This was well worth a credit to start sleeping well again. It quickly helped me identify my child's sleep problem. We were all getting much better sleep in just 3 nights of using some of the techniques. After one week, our child was sleeping through the night and has been for several weeks now.

Great science-based resource for parents

If you, like me, would only listen to science-backed argumentations and you also are going through the emotional rollercoaster of expecting a child, I really cannot recommend this book enough.
Getting ready to tackle all sleep-related problems thanks to the expert suggestions of a sleep clinic professional is priceless, especially when as it is usual, you are surrounded by many people giving you unsolicited, trivial and unscientific advice.

This narration is just a bit too slow, but it is clear and free of any major errors.
