Sleeping Through the Night
How Infants, Toddlers, and Their Parents Can Get A Good Night's SleepBook - 2005
Complemented by an all-new listing of resources, an updated handbook for parents on how to deal with the sleep problems of small children offers detailed guidelines on how to train an infant to sleep through the night, along with helpful advice on coping with night wakings, sleep apnea, ADHD, changes in routine, nightmares, travel, and more. Original. 25,000 first printing.
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.
