Here is my introduction to "A Good Night's Sleep":
This book is a book that got our heads above the water and gave us the drive to republish it so that it can help other families on the edge of the abyss as we have been. Zia was born at home and in the water, she is the last of a blended sibling of six children. At six months, her unpredictable nocturnal awakenings combined with a complex family situation led my partner Aurélie to acute exhaustion, endangering her health, the health of Zia who did not have her sleep account, our couple and even the existence of our family. Let's not talk about breastfeeding, which was part of a vicious circle, because the more Aurélie was exhausted, the less nourishing her milk was and the more Zia woke up. My own attempts to get up every time Zia woke up came to nothing, other than introducing me to the night hike to put her to sleep....
Our friends Thierry and Marina Casasnovas answered to our distress call by putting this book in our hands. We followed the advice given to the letter, I laid down a mattress in the hallway for the first two nights of the therapy, and at the end of the third night, Zia was doing a full night of 11:30 without waking up, a miracle for us. Aurélie could finally start to rest and slowly climb the slope of exhaustion. We now had evenings to relax, the five daily feedings allowed quality breastfeeding. Since then, Zia continues on this path, she is in a relaxed mood, reassured by the pace that we have found, and sleeps between 14 to 15 hours per 24h.
We quickly wanted to share this therapy with as many parents as possible, whether they have an alternative or traditional approach to parenting, and the republication of this book was immediately obvious to us. It is not a method to apply, a ready-made recipe, but a real therapy, and the fundamental point for it to be successful is to understand the archaic needs of your child, which can only be done by reading the book completely. I hope from the bottom of my heart that reading this book will bring you results as spectacular as it has for us.
and some news from Aurélie:
So, news of our nights ...
Zia has been sleeping all night since the end of August, in her bed so she has been sleeping through the night since she was 6 months old. The therapy was a real success after 48 hours.
For me, it took me about 6 weeks to really recover.
Today Zia is 9 months old. 3 days ago, she woke up again around 1 a.m.
The first night she did that, well she didn't want to eat that evening and her belly was rumbling, I breastfed her, she sucked a lot and fell asleep again until morning...
The next day, we were very careful that she eats well in the evening and the night was complete...
The next night, she cried out around 3:00 a.m., Eric got up, put his hand on her back and she went back to sleep.
Last night, around 5:30 am, "crying" of hunger, I breastfed her and she went back to sleep until 8:30 am.
Some testimonials from the Facebook group:
"Hello everyone ! So we started the therapy Monday night, determined. We did not meet all the conditions since we put Diane, 6 months old, in the room of her sister, Albane, 2 years and 4 months old. I told myself that it was going to be big chaos and that no one would sleep... Diane woke up every hour as usual but I did not breastfeed her... it was dad who took in charge the first 2 nights... with - error! - the mattress in the girls' room! - it was very difficult the first night but it had been explained to her well and I really believe that she did not feel at all abandoned or insecure. And then, despite the tears, Albane, who still wakes up often at night, did not wake up!!! We continued, I took over the third night, with some long periods of wakings up but less than before! And yesterday only one waking up... and that night, a miracle! She slept from 7:30 p.m. to 6:20 a.m. in one go! Despite her sister waking up at 5 a.m.!! The waking up was still hard but so joyful :) we are almost euphoric about these new perspectives! Diane is beaming at sleeping so well, she has been eating very well for three days, she is even more patient than she already was... and Albane loves having her sister with her in the bedroom!!! I admit not having read the entire book, only 3/4 before starting, it was too urgent! But that was enough for me to convince myself and determine myself to start, without a doubt on the benefits for the whole family. The meals are now well defined and no more feeding on demand during the day and everything is more serene... for her and for me!!! It is the opposite method of what I had practiced with the big one. But I believe that ultimately sleep education is a service to the whole family. Albane was breastfed extensively until 18 months and today her sleep is still uncertain. Security undoubtedly is more constructive than an immediate response to all desires... which are not needs! Hahaha... it makes me laugh to see myself say that!!! Courage to all! The game seems worthwhile..."
"3rd night of the therapy which has just ended, our darling slept from 7:35 p.m. to 6:45 a.m. with a waking up of 30 seconds at 6:10 a.m.!! And to think that 3 days ago he woke up every 30 minutes and suckled!"
"Hello, assessment after a month of treatment... Lyse sleeps very well from 8:45 pm to 7:30 am and takes a nap of 1:30 to 1:45 hours so we are delighted! Above all, she falls asleep without crying, with pleasure she asks to go to bed, of course she sometimes asks to be accompanied to sleep but we remain in the method, we are delighted. She went back to the nursery one morning a week and she is very happy (whereas before it was hard). She is toilet-training and eats very well, I am about to end the breastfeeding. She still suckles in the morning and at 4 p.m., Lyse is 18 months old... Despite a lot of questions, it works and we are delighted... We are starting to talk about it around us ... Good luck to everyone!!!"

"All the previous testimonials helped me enormously, I bring you a testimony right in the middle of the therapy! I am on the 3rd day of the therapy!
My daughter is 2 years and 2 months old. I still breastfeed her every now and then, but most of all, she only slept at night asking to suckle regularly. It woke me up every time and I had a really hard time falling back asleep afterwards knowing that she slept between me and her daddy from the middle of the night (her daddy would pick her up as soon as she cried in the middle of the night and she asked to go with mom) and, at the slightest request, I answered to her desire to suckle... Before the therapy, I was all the time worked up, hypersensitive and above all, I realize that I spent my days in “energy saving” mode. I was unable to fully live the present moment because I kept in mind the need to save energy for the nights… with this feeling of being continuously "on duty".
We are on the 3rd day of the therapy and everyone seems relieved to finally have some benchmarks (it must be said that at home, we had no defined rhythm, our daughter could eat just as well at 7 p.m. as at 9 p.m. ...) . And the therapy works wonderfully. I put my daughter to bed in 15 seconds and then she falls asleep peacefully on her own. The night still requires a few confirmations that all is well, that mom and dad take care of her safety, by singing the lullaby, but other than that, it's perfect.
On the other hand, last night, her daddy had to take over for the nap and the night. As much as the nap went well, as soon as he picked her up in his arms to put her to bed at night, she looked distraught. We didn't insist and I put our daughter to bed in 15 seconds. Last night our daughter woke up several times and I was very briefly in her room to reposition her, to ventilate her (10 seconds), to put her back to sleep after a moment of tears. I don't know if I did well, knowing that normally, after the 1st night, we are only supposed to enter the baby's room in the event of a big big crisis… She seemed full of sorrow, that's why I went. She immediately felt asleep. Here are the first days of therapy!"
"Second night and my little Adèle was asleep in 2 min!!! thank you thank you thank you thank you!!"
"Hello folks, for us, the therapy has been set up only since a few days (we started 3 weeks ago). At night, our daughter wakes up one time to eat between 5 a.m. and 6 a.m., some nights (most of the time in the middle of the week), like the one which has just ended, she wakes up 4 times! But it is becoming less and less frequent. We do everything to explain to her why we are doing this, the good it brings to her and to us too, that we love her... Well, if the therapy has to last longer it does not matter. Initially, I breastfed my daughter at will at night and she hardly took a nap! Today, no more rub, no more ventilation, just a cuddly moment, a story and bedtime! She still struggles a little, sometimes 2 minutes, sometimes 20, but never more and falls asleep alone!
We have a slightly particular context, we have moved house from 15000km, changed hemisphere, shifted from a very present dad to 1 hour with his daughter per day, with the presence of the grandparents (which does not always help!) , but we are getting there, we have to believe in it, listen to our child and our heart. Sometimes reread parts of the book (after several rereadings it's less blurry and confusing)."
"A little message after a 2nd night which went very well, 50min to fall asleep again but no tears this time! And no waking up at night. And this despite the fact that a nasopharyngitis was declared yesterday (what Anna described in her book ...). So we are delighted!!"
"Second night! Much better, as expected. 1st waking up at 3 a.m., magnificent!!! Then, one call and attentiveness until 4:30 am with periods of silence of 20 min. I am moved when he calms down and surrenders several times just with the nursery rhyme. Anna was telling the truth! Then he slept until 7am! If it continues like this, it's incredible, I'm bluffed!!"
"Small feedback on the continuation of our therapy, we are at day 21. After some turbulent beginnings. Our 4-year old daughter goes to bed perfectly and last night, she slept all night long without waking us up (1st time since her birth). We have made adaptations to the therapy. We don't have fun (it annoys her too much) but we have a privileged time with her of cuddles, a story, the suckling and she goes to bed wonderfully. She prefers the door half open and that doesn't bother us, she has a little night light. It's such a pleasure to see her sleeping and so do we."
"Hello everyone in love with your babies :)
I come to say a big thank you to Aurélie and Eric for the republication of this golden book!!!!! Because even with breastfeeding, thanks to the tools, we have a 6-months old baby who falls asleep on his own each time, without the breast, with the rhyme and a blanket. He still wakes up at night but goes straight back to sleep (with the breast...). We are also in co-sleeping with a large mattress just for him so we are not stuck to each other and we also practice the HNI. We wait until his 9 months to "ask" him to eat less at night... but we see that little by little he regulates himself, quietly...
I wanted to share another tool that we use in parallel and which really helps us: connected communication :) (the coconut) for those who do not know it's something great :) To experiment!!!! Especially when you set up the sleep therapy or the tools, it's cool to know what the baby thinks about it :) A good night's sleep little ones + the coconut = bueno bueno :) Big kisses to all! Love be with you."
