Kim West, The Sleep Lady, writes what might be the best sleep book out there. There is no perfect sleep book, and no magical solution — however, this book gives an organized, helpful breakdown of what to do when.
It has a more middle-of-the road approach… great for those parents who feel that cry-it-out is too extreme in one direction and who feel that sleep training with no tears is too extreme (or unrealistic) in the other direction. She teaches how to effectively calm and soothe your baby without un-doing any progress in sleep training.
Kim West empowers the parent to be the baby’s coach, gently encouraging healthy sleep habits from early on. She divides the book by age, and reminds us what the goals should be at each stage. Check it out on Amazon…. or Kindle… here!
