Many parents feel pressured to train babies and young children to sleep but kids don t need to be trained to sleep, they re built to sleep. Sleep issues arise when parents (with the best of intentions) over-help or helicopter parent at night overshadowing their baby s innate biological ability to sleep well. In The Happy Sleeper child sleep experts Heather Turgeon and Julie Wright show parents how to be sensitive and nurturing, but also clear and structured so that babies and young children develop the self-soothing skills they need to fall asleep independently, sleep through the night, take healthy naps, and grow into natural, optimal sleep patterns for day and night. The Happy Sleeper is a research-based guide to helping children do what comes naturally sleep through the night. The Happy Sleeper features a foreword by neuropsychiatrist and popular parenting expert Dr. Daniel Siegel, author of Parenting from the Inside Out and the New York Times bestseller Brainstorm.

Review:

'A must-have purchase if you can't remember the last time you had an uninterrupted night's sleep.' Baby London 'The Happy Sleeper makes happier parents by unleashing their child's natural ability to sleep with a sensitive, structured approach based on the authors' combined 20 years of clinical experience.' -- Mehmet Oz, M.D. (Dr. Oz) Professor of Surgery, New York Presbyterian/ Columbia University 'Give your children the relationship security they need while also providing them the structure they require to sleep well and thrive ...' -- Daniel J. Siegel New York Times bestselling author of Brainstorm and The Whole Brain Child (Excerpted from foreword) 'Clear a space on your bookshelf! You'll be consulting this friendly, researched-based guide to the blessings of sleep for you and your little ones for many years to come.' -- Adele Faber co-author of How To Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk 'Turgeon and Wright's compassionate but firm system reminds parents that even the smallest infants are already learners, and to be more cognizant of what they want to teach. Solid information on children's brain development and physiology supports a clear and systematic 'attunement' philosophy that strikes a happy balance between 'cry it out' and 'overhelping.' Publishers Weekly 'An excellent guide for parents! Simple, effective advice that is consistent with infants' and children's developmental needs. Written in a user-friendly and practical way - you'll keep going back to it at every age and stage of your child's sleep.' -- Yael Wapinski MD New York City pediatrician and mother of three 'An important resource for parents seeking to give their children a lifetime of quality sleep. Good sleep habits are vital to child development and overall health, and The Happy Sleeper offers real-world strategies for getting children the sleep they need.' --David M. Cloud CEO, National Sleep Foundation
