Overview

Many parents feel pressured to "train" babies and young children to sleep. But kids don't need to be trained to sleep—they're built to sleep. Sleep issues arise when parents (with the best of intentions) overhelp or "helicopter parent" at night—overshadowing their baby's innate biological ability to sleep well. In The Happy Sleeper, child sleep experts Heather Turgeon and Julie Wright show parents how to be sensitive and nurturing, but also clear and structured so that babies and young children develop the self-soothing skills they need in order to:

- Fall asleep independently
- Sleep through the night
- Take healthy naps
- Grow into natural, optimal sleep patterns for day and night

The Happy Sleeper is a research-based guide to helping children do what comes naturally—sleep through the night.

Every mom I know, including myself, has had sleep issues with their young children at one point. Thank god this book has come along. With clear guidance backed up by science, the advice makes sense and feels right. I hadn't realized that sleep was such an important factor in a child's development. It's such an amazing gift I can give to my children. I've got post-its throughout this entire book so I won't be lending it out but I'll be buying it for every baby shower I attend!!
