About The Happy Sleeper
Many parents feel pressured to "train" their little ones and bigger ones to sleep, but they don't need to be trained to sleep. They are built to sleep. Sleep issues arise when parents (with the best of intentions) overhelp 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
- 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.
