Sleep: What Every Parent Needs to Know

Sooner or later, most parents face challenges at bedtime. From infants and toddlers to school-aged kids and adolescents, sleep problems can affect everyone in the family. And no matter what a child’s difficulty may be—getting to sleep, staying asleep, bed-wetting, fears, or nightmares—it’s never too late to take steps to correct it.

Sleep: What Every Parent Needs to Know, 2nd Edition, helps parents and caregivers better understand sleep, answering questions and examining conflicting theories to help parents make the best decisions for their family.

Topics include:

  • The functions of sleep and how much your child needs
  • Newborn sleep patterns
  • Sleep theories and strategies for success
  • Bedtime routines and rituals
  • Coping with fears and nightmares
  • Tips for solving common problems
  • Helping regulate multiples’ sleep
  • Changes during adolescence

Sleep: What Every Parent Needs to Know was written and edited by pediatricians—many of whom have been sleep-deprived parents at one time or another—who have helped many families in their care. They recognize that there is not always an easy, one-size-fits-all answer to a sleep problem. With these recommended strategies for establishing good sleep habits and parents' unique understanding of their child, this book can help ensure everyone in the family will get all the rest they need.
