Maureen A. Doolan Boyle, Executive Director, MOST (Mothers of Supertwins), Inc.

Does your child:

  • nap only in your arms, a sling, a swing, or the car?
  • require elaborate rituals before sleeping?
  • get fussy, act cranky, or have tantrums due to lack of sleep?
  • take very short naps--or none at all?

Naps are important to a child's mood, well-being, and development. The No-Cry Nap Solution offers you a proven formula to allow your baby, toddler, or preschooler to get daily restorative rest. You'll learn gentle, loving, tear-free techniques, developed by world-renowned parenting expert Elizabeth Pantley and tested by hundreds of families around the world, guaranteed to help you:

  • Convince any child to nap every day
  • Effortlessly settle your child for naptime in his or her own bed
  • Turn short, fitful naps into long, peaceful ones
  • Establish a nap schedule that works for you and your child
  • Easily adapt nap routines to your child's developing needs
  • Confidently deal with sudden changes, nap strikes, and travel
