Elizabeth Pantley's books for parents are as close to a user’s manual as there is. The “No-Cry” books offer remarkably clear and practical advice. This latest book in the series addresses an issue we have all faced and many struggled with: helping our children to nap.

Easy naptime solutions that really work--without any tears.
Kathy Lynn, President, Parenting Today

Naps: Children need them. Parents want them. Here are the tools to make them happen.
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


Elizabeth Pantley’s The No-Cry Nap Solution has been awarded Disney’s 2009 iParenting Media Award for Best Product!

Here’s a snapshot of what the judges had to say: 

I liked the author’s acknowledgement that there is no such thing as an easy formula when it comes to children and napping.  The simple, practical ideas included in the book are wonderful.  

The illustration on the front cover is beautiful and attractive; you want to pickup the book to learn more.  All of the photos inside the book are beautiful.  The author is intelligent, loving and articulate.  

The book is a great reference for parents who are both struggling with nap time routines and also to those that are simply looking for ideas.  It is a complete reference that will be opened by parents again and again as different issues can arise during a child’s growth.
