Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In this expanded edition, first published in 2004, child and family therapist West (aka The Sleep Lady) further explores the ways parents can teach their infants and toddlers the indispensable skill of falling and staying asleep. West has added the latest pediatric research on sleep safety, pacifier use, and breastfeeding, as well as expanded sections on toddler naps, interpreting newborn cries, and phasing out nighttime feedings. She has also included sections on bedtime baby yoga poses, a chapter on room sharing and bed sharing (encouraging parents to carefully assess their attitudes before making a decision on whether to co-sleep) and postpartum depression. West eschews the cry it out approach, which may leave parents feeling guilty and exhausted. Instead, her Sleep Lady Shuffle is a gentle behavior modification technique that helps babies gradually master solo sleeping and self-soothing. The author covers such general sleep tips as creating a sleep-friendly environment and using loveys, and then offers individual chapters addressing various age groups from newborn to five; readers can readily find information pertinent to their particular child and situation. In this detailed guide, West advises parents to practice patience and consistency, and maintain a united front as they lull their baby into slumber land. (Jan.)

Review

from the Foreword of GOOD NIGHT, SLEEP TIGHT, Faith A. Hackett, M.S. Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics, Courtesy Staff Physician, Johns Hopkins Hospital Staff Physician, Anne Arundel Medical Center
“For all the parents who have lost countless hours of sleep trying the tough love approach of letting the baby cry it out, this book comes as a wonderful, informative reprieve…. I’ve been looking for a definitive how-to book on sleep that I can recommend without reservation. GOOD NIGHT, SLEEP TIGHT is that book.”



Father for Life
“Right after ‘boy or girl?’ the next question new parents often hear is ‘How’s he sleeping?’ After going through Kim West’s painless, practical, and easy-to-implement program, they’ll be able to honestly answer, ‘Like a baby.’ ”

Maureen O'Brien, Ph.D., author of Watch Me Grow: I'm One, Two, Three
" From yoga to co-sleeping to twins, West provides novel advice and practical methods to help parents make the best sleep choices for their family."

Dr. David Kessler, Dean of the School of Medicine and Vice Chancellor for Medical Affairs at University of California, San Francisco (UCSF)
“Parents and children alike should welcome this common sense, family-friendly guide to childhood sleep from birth to age five. This book will teach parents to gently start to shape a baby's sleep in infancy, sparing them the months or even years of sleep-deprivation that so many families endure.”



Parenting magazine
GOOD NIGHT, SLEEP TIGHT is the first book of its kind to clearly explain why bedtime is such a challenge for so many kids and their parents, and to offer solutions that won’t torture anyone.”

Anthony E. Wolf Ph.D. Clinical Psychologist, author of It's Not Fair, Jeremy Spencer's Parents Let Him Stay Up All Night! and Get Out of My Life but First Could You Drive Me and Cheryl to the Mall? A Parent's Guide to the New Teenager
“Kim West and Joanne Kenen have written a book that can only be tremendously helpful for any parent. Ms. West has an amazing knowledge about children and sleep. She gives very specific, very clear and very do-able suggestions for virtually every sleep issue, and she knows what works. If a parent has a concern about any sleep problem with their child, this is the book that has the answers. I found it wonderfully helpful, and extremely readable."

Howard Bennett, M.D., author of
Waking Up Dry: A Guide to Help Children Overcome Bedwetting
“A godsend for tired parents everywhere. I highly recommend this book to the parents of infants and young children who have a problem sleeper on their hands.”

Armin Brott, author of --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
