I’m excited to announce that I have a book coming out on September 3, 2019 and it is now available for pre-order at this link: https://amzn.to/2HunGtQ
Here is Amazon’s description of the book:
While there are plenty of resources available to establish healthy sleeping patterns for babies and toddlers, there’s very little guidance for parents who want to help their preschool and elementary school children (ages 3-10) sleep well. These parents may have considered seeking help from a sleep coach but may be concerned that this help may be expensive or involve a cry-it-out approach that they are unwilling to try. However, parents can be wonderful sleep coaches for their children once they know what to do. Become Your Child’s Sleep Coach meets that need by providing parents with practical and proven advice.
This book first examines the two biggest mistakes you, as a parent, may be making. The first is staying with your children at bedtime until they are completely asleep. This is cozy, to be sure, but this results in your child needing you again after every waking (and all kids wake up several times a night!). The second mistake is allowing too many “callbacks and curtain calls” (those extra requests kids like to make after the bedtime routine is over) and this can result in an extended bedtime routine that is exhausting for everyone
This book gives you a simple five-step plan to address both of these issues and details how you can coach your children to be wonderful sleepers.
The five-step plan shows you how to:
Step 1: Prepare your child’s bedroom for great sleep
Step 2: Use the 5B Bedtime Routine every night
Step 3: Teach your child to self-comfort as you work your way out of the room
Step 4: Manage “callbacks and curtain calls”
Step 5: Make a plan for night wakings and early morning wakings
In addition to her proven and extremely successful five-step program, Dr. Schneeberg also addresses several common questions and concerns you may have about your child’s sleep: learning how many hours of sleep your children really need, choosing an ideal bedtime, managing the bedtime routine during potty training, deciding whether to try melatonin or other sleep aids (like white noise machines or weighted blankets), dealing with night terrors and other sleep issues, and more.
Become Your Child’s Sleep Coach is your guide to better sleep for your children and the whole family!
