About This Book

In Your Sleepless Baby, I begin by describing physical, developmental and behavioral reasons for babies to experience trouble falling or staying asleep. Then what’s normal and what’s not regarding baby’s sleep; how to recognize when a baby’s distress is due to sleep deprivation; behavioral cues that indicate that baby needs to sleep; and how parents influence their baby’s sleep – for better or worse – depending on the actions they take when setting baby to sleep.

Included are step-by-step instructions on how to solve THE MOST common of all reasons for baby sleep problems – negative sleep associations. This type of sleeping problem presents as difficulty falling asleep at timte, a short naps causing overtiredness, difficulty falling asleep, and frequent awakenings at night requiring assistance to return to sleep. Seven options to resolve sleep association problems, ranging from bed-sharing (safely) to cry-it-out and others in-between, are described.

Also included are details on how to resolve circadian rhythm sleep problems related to the timing of baby’s sleep, for example baby not falling asleep until very late at night, or waking up much to early in the mornings or being awake for long periods in the night.

Why I wrote this book

During my professional career, I have encountered thousands of babies who had been misdiagnosed with medical conditions because of the distress they displayed due to lack of sleep occurring because of a sleeping problem. And countless parents who suffered depression, anxiety, relationship breakdowns, accidents, or small number who had harmed their baby because they were unable to cope with baby’s constant crying and the unrelenting stress associated with chronic sleep deprivation.

I wrote Your Sleepless Baby because I wanted to free babies and their parents from the torture of chronic sleep deprivation. My goal is to empower parents to make informed decisions about the best course of action for their baby and family by providing evidence-based information about infant sleep and the various options available to solve infant sleep problems.
