Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“West clearly understands that sleep is a process, both for the parent and
the child. Her techniques match what babies and toddlers need – gradual
transitions, consistent responses from parents, and a sense of security –
so that they can eventually sleep on their own. West provides novel advice
and practical methods to help parents make the best sleep choices for
their family.”
–Maureen O’Brien, PhD, author,
Watch Me Grow: I'm One, Two, Three

“Bravo to Kim West who provides new parents with simple, practical tips
to help their babies sleep through the night! Sleep is not a luxury – it’s a
medical necessity – especially for new parents. Kim carefully explains how
one size doesn’t fit all, and she compassionately encourages parents to find
the route that works well for them. I highly recommend this book for the
well-being of the entire family.”
–Shoshana Bennett, Ph.D., author,

Read an Excerpt

Essentially, you’re teaching your child a new skill. So be patient and
remember that mastering a skill—whether it’s walking, handling a
spoon, using the potty, or sleeping through the night—takes time.
However, the families I work with solve the majority of their kids’ bedtime
snafus within two weeks. (Issues like napping and early rising
typically take a little longer.)

How to Use This Workbook

For the best results, I recommend that you read the first few chapters,
plus the chapter that corresponds to your child’s age, of my book
Good Night, Sleep Tight before you begin creating your plan (on page
46 of this workbook); at the very least, please read all the way through
the workbook before you start sleep coaching your child. And remember:
Your success will depend on consistency, follow-through, and patience,
as well as 100 percent commitment on the part of everyone else who shares in caring for your child—including your partner, your child’s grandparents, and the sitter.

May you enjoy many peaceful nights of sleep ahead!
— Kim West, LCSW-C
The Sleep Lady®
