Among all books and handbooks providing fast and easy sleep train methods for newborn babies, the one by Eduard Estevill is surely the most sadly notorious: the Estevill's method is well-known to children health care specialists (and reported by some paediatric associations) due to its violence and potential damages to children. This book, written by an expert in Montessori pedagogy - explains why to reject all "fast and easy" sleep train methods and provides soft, respectful approaches to face baby sleep problems, as well as useful advice by experts and children health care specialists.
