Full Description

Sleep training didn't work for you? You're not the only one--and you don't need to give up. Researcher and sleep coach Macall Gordon and the Sleep Lady Kim West offer a tried-and-true approach to shifting sleep behavior that actually works . . . even when nothing else has. A tsunami of modern sleep training methods promise "easy" and "quick" results and for many parents and children, these methods work as intended. However, there is a large, exhausted group of parents whose children have sleep problems that are not responsive to those crying-based methods. These children tend to be more reactive, persistent, and perceptive than their peers. And when it comes to sleep, little ones with this kind of temperament put up a much, much bigger fight. They need a different approach. That's where Why Won't You Sleep? comes in. Based on extensive research and proven methods used with thousands of families just like yours, this guide gives you strategies tailored to your child's unique temperament. Readers will learn:
  • Why popular sleep training techniques, don't work for some children
  • Simple changes to your child's routine and environment that prime their nervous system for slumber
  • A step-by-step plan for your child, using the time-tested approach that doesn't require leaving babies alone to cry
  • Tips, tricks, and workarounds for night wakings, co-sleeping, and more
  • How to gently push past plateaus and setbacks

Additionally, Gordon and West provide much-needed encouragement, validation, and insights to bolster parents' self-confidence and resilience along the way. Why Won't You Sleep? will finally give you concrete answers to why sleep has been more challenging for you and your child--and offers a much-needed confidence boost that will leave you saying, "I've got this."
