Description

A large percentage of parents find their young child's sleep - or lack of - challenging. This new book from Sarah Ockwell-Smith, founder of BabyCalm, will be an indispensable guide for parents, whatever challenges they are facing with their child's sleep - from the day they bring their newborn home until their child is settled into school. Examining everything from frequent night waking in babyhood, through bedwetting in toddlerhood, to nightmares and refusal to go to bed in pre-schoolers, this book provides extensive scientific and anecdotal information, plus plenty of gentle suggestions, to help everyone get a good night's sleep. This is a gentle, evidence-based approach that doesn't involve leaving a baby to cry or shutting a sobbing child in their bedroom.show more
