In her follow-up documentary to her ground-breaking film, In Utero, director Kathleen Man Gyllenhaal walks right into one of the most sensitive topics in modern parenting: How to get your baby to sleep.


One of the first questions parents are asked when they have a new baby is whether or not she is sleeping through the night. As it turns out, as much as we are obsessed with getting a good night's rest, we are even more so when it comes to our baby's sleep. In fact, it seems that our own well-being depends on it.

Cry Baby Cry brings together doctors, scientists, historians, scholars, mothers and fathers to explore the history and science of infant sleep, modern sleep-training methods and the stressors of contemporary life that bombard new parents.
