PRAISE FOR THE LULL-A-BABY SLEEP PLAN

“Dr Tobin's breakthrough discovery will revolutionize how new parents put their babies to bed! Read this book and sleep better tonight.”  — MICHELE BORBA, Ed.D., author of 12 Simple Secrets Real Moms Know and Parents DO Make a Difference

“Finally, a research-based solution to the age-old problem of getting Baby to sleep! Drawing on her extensive knowledge of infant neurological development as well as her years of experience as a practicing pediatrician, Dr. Tobin has created an approach that is simple, effective---and compassionate. Lull-a-Baby is not about letting babies cry; it’s about understanding the sometimes counterintuitive conditions that help babies fall asleep on their own. This book should be required reading for all new parents!”  — LINDA ACREDOLO, Ph.D., co-author of the bestsellers Baby Signs, Baby Minds and Baby HeartsThe Lull-A-Baby Sleep Plan - Romanian cover

“Parenting is a 24/7 job, and it can get pretty lonely at 3 a.m., especially if you’re the kind of parent who can’t bear to let your child cry himself to sleep. That’s why The Lull-a-Baby Sleep Plan is so wonderful. Dr. Cathryn Tobin not only has a gentle, caring approach to your baby but also has great empathy for what you’re going through. New parents can help their infant learn healthy sleep habits from the get-go, and those who’ve missed the early window of opportunity can backtrack and solve bedtime battles with an older child. Drawing on her years of experience as a midwife, a pediatrician and a mom, Dr. Tobin illustrates her techniques with a wide variety of sleep problems. This is one book that should be in every parent’s library.”  — MARY MOHLER, Editor-at-Large, Parents magazine

“Cathryn Tobin gives new parents the encouragement and inspiration to develop the skills they need to help their children sleep. Anyone who has struggled to put a child to bed night after night will appreciate the honest, direct and practical approach Tobin uses. As a parent of four children and senior editor at ePregnancy, I know that sleep is one of the toughest issues new parents face. Kudos for a terrific road-map to a good night’s sleep for all kids – and their parents.”  — JULIA ROSIEN, Senior Editor, ePregnancy magazine

“Dr. Tobin's important and highly readable book offers parents medically sound and scientifically based sleep strategies that are attuned to the needs of both babies and parents. By teaching parents how to activate their baby's relaxation response, Dr. Tobin's book offers a humane alternative to the ‘letting them cry’ method. Her light-hearted approach and easy to follow recommendations will foster confidence and competence for any new (and exhausted!) parent. The Lull-A-Baby Sleep Plan gives parents the greatest gift of early childhood - SLEEP!”  — DEBRA PHILLIPS HAUSER, Ph.D., Lecturer, Child Study Center, Yale University School of Medicine

“Welcome to the Land of Nod: Dr. Tobin teaches us how to recognize and read our kids' cues so we can help them - and us! - get a better nights' sleep. Her down-to-earth approach is also refreshing. A great read for parents, new and old.”  — KATHRYN DORRELL, Life editor, Canadian Living magazine

“Perfect for bleary-eyed, exhausted parents who are in desperate need of solutions on how they can help their infant (and themselves) get some much-needed sleep. Keep this insightful reference handy, you'll refer to it again and again.”  — SAM HORN, author of Tongue Fu! and What's Holding You Back?

“Dr Tobin offers desperate parents an alternative to allowing their babies control their lives or else having to feel intense guilt by having to let their babies "cry it out" to force them to sleep. The Lull-A-Baby plan provides simple, gentle explanations and choices....to help mom, dad and baby sleep better. This book is an excellent resource for me and one I will recommend to many new (and maybe not -so-new) parents!”  — KATHEE ANDREWS, M.D., pediatrician, Toronto, Canada

The Lull-a-Baby Sleep Plan is the very best way to help really young babies sleep through the night!”  — DENISE MACNEIL, RN, mother of three
