Elizabeth Pantley No Cry Sleep Solution

Elizabeth Pantley's No Cry Sleep Solution Book focuses on gentle nighttime routines and the need for consistency in training

The theory behind the No Tears method is that bedtime is a prime opportunity for connecting and building a relationship with baby. 

It is based on going to baby immediately when he cries during the night and creating an environment of safety through constant contact, picking up and putting down as necessary, and lots of attention.

It focuses on gentle nighttime routines and the need for consistency in training.

No Tears Method Pros

• It builds a healthy bond between baby and caregiver
• It reassures baby and helps create a positive understanding of nighttime
• It encourages gentle sleep training
• Good method for babies and toddlers needing help

No Tears Method Cons

• It can take a while (several weeks) to show results
• It can create a habit in baby of needing props to fall asleep
• Caregivers are required every time baby wakes up, making it difficult for the caregiver to fall asleep themselves

If you are interested in learning more about the No Tears Method, pick up Elizabeth Pantley’s book “The No-Cry Sleep Solution: Gentle Ways to Help Your Baby Sleep Through the Night.” If you’d like to learn more about alternative method for sleep training, please check out my baby sleep book here.

    I tried this method for a while and I just wasn’t successful. Every time I would go to my daughter when she woke up, she would cry harder and refuse to lay back down. We tried to be consistent, but it just didn’t seem to work. We then tried the “Cry it out method”, and although it was extremely hard, she began to cry less and fall asleep easier. She’s now 14 months and sleeps through the night, plus she falls asleep on her own.
