Publisher's Summary

The Gentle Sleep Book offers gentle, no-tears sleep solutions for exhausted parents of newborns to five-year-olds.
A large percentage of parents find their young children'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 in at school.
Examining everything from frequent night waking in babyhood through bedwetting in toddlerhood to nightmares and refusal to go to bed in preschoolers, this audiobook 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 his or her bedroom.


What the Critics Say

"Sleep is not a battle. It's a balance, and in this book Sarah helps parents find that balance...the practical advice [in her BEDTIME acronym] for real situations is very helpful." (Juno)

Every New Parent Should Read This

Clear, easy to follow, sound advice.
I wish we were given this when our baby was born. Even more I wish every parent who was told to let their baby cry it out (I was, many times) read this and told those "advisers" how wrong they are.
Beautiful book that will change my family life.
Well done!

A must read for anyone caring for children!

This was a fabulous book and so helpful. I'm a Birth Boot Camp Instructor and mom of 2, and purchased this for help with my youngest who is currently bedsharing. I will recommend this to my students as well, and honestly to anyone caring for children, especially those who are with them in the evening and at nap times. I must listen again to retain all of her helpful information.
