Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A fully updated edition of this 1997 classic on infant/toddler sleep, for the approximately 25% of parents whose children experience sleep problems.

This completely revised edition will include updated advice from Dr. Mindell on giving newborns the right start on sleep, an allandndash;new chapter on continued night waking and nap problems, clear and detailed guidance on conducting sleep training, new research linking sleep training to improved attachment, a new section on dealing with the child who reacts differently to each parent, discussion of sleep issues in multiples, new findings on sleep apnoea in children and the link with ADHD, and more. Other additions:

o research on the impact of babies' sleep on women's sleep

o handling nursing and sleep, based on the author's professional expertise and personal experience as a longandndash;term nursing mother.

o using focal feeding to significantly reduce night waking

o slowing response time to cries, allowing baby to return to sleep on his or her own

o the benefits of swaddling

o making the transition from bassinet to crib

o how feeding schedule changes affect sleep patterns

o pros and cons of attachment objects, or "loveys"

o dealing with travel, changes in routine (going to Grandma's), nightmares or traumatic events

o updated resources for bedtime books and internet support

Synopsis:

Right after "Is it a boy or a girl?" and "What's his/her name?," the next question people invariably ask new parents is "Are you getting any sleep?" Unfortunately, the answer is usually "Not much." In fact, studies show that approximately 25% of young children experience some type of sleep problem and, as any bleary-eyed parent will attest, it is one of the most difficult challenges of parenting.

Drawing on her ten years of experience in the assessment and treatment of common sleep problems in children, Dr. Jodi A. Mindell now provides tips and techniques, the answers to commonly asked questions, and case studies and quotes from parents who have successfully solved their children's sleep problems.

Unlike other books on the subject, Dr. Mindell also offers practical tips on bedtime, rather than middle-of-the-night-sleep training, and shows how all members of the family can cope with the stresses associated with teaching a child to sleep.
