“Dr. Kennedy has written a smart, readable book that will have parents feeling empowered about a time when most have felt powerless- at three in the morning, the baby's screaming, and they haven't slept in two days. The Good Sleeper is an instant classic that will be at the bedside table of every parent.” ―Ashley Merryman, coauthor of NurtureShock: New Thinking about Children
“The Good Sleeper gives new parents the thing they most covet--a good night's sleep. Though sleep advice abounds from well-meaning friends and relatives, it is often conflicting or confusing. Dr. Kennedy has a simple, straightforward approach that makes the most daunting sleep problem manageable, and delivers the information concisely so that even the most exhausted parent will be able to benefit from her wisdom.” ―Roshini Raj, MD, Assistant Professor of Medicine at NYU School of Medicine, and author of What the Yuck?! The Freaky and Fabulous Truth About Your Body
“Backed up by research and common sense, The Good Sleeper is a must-read for all new parents. From the moment you read Kennedy's book you feel as if you're in great hands. Her clear, no-nonsense approach gives parents the knowledge and courage to teach their babies this all-essential first task-- how to sleep.” ―Robin Berman, MD, Psychiatrist, associate professor at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, and author of Permission to Parent: How to Raise Your Child With Love & Limits
