Sleep like a baby, they all said. Well, that couldn't sound further from the truth when you're all drowsy at 2am, trying to keep awake as you rock away hoping to get your baby to fall back to sleep, could it?
If you're at your wits end dealing with a baby who simply refuses to sleep through the night, then you're at the right place. Today, we're going to review the Baby Sleep Miracle, a baby sleep guide that teaches you how to get your baby to sleep like clockwork.
Now, if you think this is just another review singing praises for an eBook to boost sales, then you're wrong. Yes, there are many fake reviews out there that probably haven't even seen the book itself before, let alone read it, rest assured that this is not the way we do things here. We've bought the book ourselves, read through it and here's our honest opinion.
1. What Is Baby Sleep Miracle?
Baby Sleep Miracle is a 111-page eBook that is all about baby sleep - from outlining the importance of sleep to helpful tips and techniques that you can practise to give your baby (and yourself!) a better night's sleep, this book touches on simply everything you need to know about a baby's sleep.
What's so special about it, you may ask? There are, after all, hundreds if not thousands of baby sleep books in the market. In our opinion, what sets it apart from the rest is the fact that it is based on scientifically proven method stemmed from ground-breaking research that is done by the Harvard Medical School and the Stanford Center for Sleep Science and Medicine.
It is written by a lady called Mary-Ann Schuler, a clinical psychologist with over 20 years of experience under her belt who is a mother of two herself too. To date, her Baby Sleep Miracle has accordingly helped over 17,000 parents around the globe. So confident is she that her eBook works that a 60-day money back guarantee with no questions ask is offered to those who, after two months of trying her method, find that her guide is unhelpful or ineffective in any way.
2. What Can You Expect From Baby Sleep Miracle?
Ever wondered if you can build up a baby sleep routine that your little one will follow to a T so that you yourself can get your 8-hour sleep at night peacefully without disturbance? Sounds pretty impossible right? Not according to Baby Sleep Miracle - you can have a baby sleep through night.
You see, contrary to general beliefs, a baby sleep cycle can be trained up. This eBook teaches you exactly just that - how to regulate your child's sleeping patterns the holistic way.
There are 4 chapters and 16 sub-chapters in total and they guide you from start to finish on a few things:
- how to put your baby to sleep;
- signs you need to look for when your baby is tired;
- issue of tantrums and separation anxiety;
- why a sleep friendly environment is essential for your baby;
- the importance of routine; and
- the role of consistent feeding.
In particular, it goes into detail to help you first understand the importance of sleep to a baby and the dangers of sleep deprivation, before moving onto breaking down the general sleep guidelines for your newborn baby. With Baby Sleep Miracle, you don’t need to spend another single day – or night – feeling exhausted or powerless about your child’s sleep training development because every topic is covered.
Most importantly, every developmental phase of a child from birth up to 5 years of age is described in minute detail and custom indications on how to adjust the sleeping strategy to any child’s personality are provided. We think this makes the Baby Sleep Miracle very credible because we don't believe there is a one-size-fits-all solution that works on every child (like how some other baby sleep training books claim there is) because well, each child is different.
3. Why Choose Baby Sleep Miracle?
Do you know:
- The average parent loses 3 hours of sleep EVERY NIGHT
- This is 1050 hours of sleep lost in the first year of a newborn's life (3x more than our parents back in the 80s)
Long-term wise, it leads to problems like depression and divorce due to lack of sleep. In fact, adult depression has rose from 3 to 18% in the last 35 years and more than half (67%) of couples come close to divorce in the first 3 years of a baby's life with lack of sleep being one of the main reasons. Not counting other side effects like having trouble concentrating at work and to your overall health. Worse, sleep deprivation can cause serious car accidents as a result of drowsy driving.
We're sure you are now convinced the importance of sleep both for your baby and yourself. Now, if you are thinking: there are so many baby sleep methods readily available online for free, why should I pay for Baby Sleep Miracle?
Sure, you can prowl through all the parenting websites and forums to find the many baby sleep training methods, but to do that, you need TIME, a lot of them. We don't know about you, but time, is equivalent to SLEEP. Not to mention the extra work you will need to do to filter out the blatant unhelpful ones. And don't forget, there are the downright dangerous ones that cause SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome) which to be honest, unless you've got the time to really do the research on each and every method you find online, you may not even know that they are dangerous.
It can be quite overwhelming, to say the least, to be poured with so much information and that can be quite stressful, especially to first-time new parents. Which brings us to our point - why you should choose Baby Sleep Miracle.
It is one extensive package (111 pages!) that delve into baby sleep in a scientifically way. Within the guide, the author explains and presents, all in a simple and clear manner, the highly efficient methods and techniques that will help you and your baby avoid frustration throughout the day and lack of sleep during the night.
Instead of getting a tip here and another advice there, you get a complete set of baby sleep tips and techniques in one place. Furthermore, it lists out each scientific research their method is based on which is something we really like because it gives you peace of mind that they do have legit backing to their claims, as opposed to many unfounded claims.
It is like you're getting your very own baby sleep consultant to find the baby sleep solution that works for you.

Let us give you an example. You must have came across the word "Ferberizing" at some point of your baby sleep research, be it from online or from your parent peers. If you don't already know, Ferberizing is a rather controversial method of baby sleep training - some can't stop raving about it, others claim that it is dangerous. The Baby Sleep Miracle touches on it too, revealing why - in a scientific way - it thinks Ferberizing, as well as co-sleeping, can cause long-lasting damage to your child's nervous system. Damage, in the form of higher susceptibility to anxiety disorders or worse, panic attacks later in life.
What we really like about Baby Sleep Miracle is that they explain everything in a simple, easy to understand and easy to follow way. Simple language is used instead of professional jargons which makes it easy to read and understand for parents. Apart from general guidelines, there are also specific strategies aimed at establishing healthy sleeping habits for any child, no matter how stubborn or active he is, as well as how to prepare yourself and your child for sleep training.
4. Pros & Cons
This is not to say that the Baby Sleep Miracle is perfect - it has its flaws, too. At a glance, here are its pros and cons:
It is worthy to elaborate on the point regarding investing time in the program. If you're expecting this baby sleep guide to work magically the moment you buy it, you're in for a big disappointment. As with everything else, especially when it comes to dealing with children, you need to understand that if you can't find the time and commitment to follow the program, you cannot expect an instant, miraculous change overnight. The guide cannot do all the work for you. You will need to experiment around as some of the tips may not work on your baby. And to do that, you need patience, too.
If you are a parent struggling with sleep for both your child and yourself, then we think it is worthy to give the Baby Sleep Miracle a try. As we mentioned above, you get a set of excellent tips and techniques in one complete package that you can experiment with. You may not know, you may just find the right baby sleep solution that works. And if you don't, you can always get a full refund after two months if you think the program isn't for you.
Just remember, the Baby Sleep Miracle will only be effective if you also do your end of the bargain, and that is to put in some time and effort to implement and experiment. Give yourself a chance - say goodbye to stress and goodnight to baby.
