Hello, my name is Kim West and I’m proud to be the mother of two beautiful girls. I’m also a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who has been a practicing child and family therapist for over 24 years and a sleep coach for 20 of those years.

I created the ORIGINAL gentle, proven sleep coaching method that will allow you and your child to get a good night’s sleep….without leaving your child to cry-it-out alone.

Over the last 20 years I have personally logged more than 150,000 hours of sleep coaching with over 20,000 families, helping them achieve a full night’s sleep in less than two weeks.

I have a global community of over 100,000 parents who have used my book, “The Sleep Lady’s Good Night, Sleep Tight” which they have dubbed “The Sleep Bible” to gently teach their children to sleep.

I have also authored the Good Night, Sleep Tight Companion Workbook and the 52 Sleep Secrets for Babies book.

Sleep is Coming ... I Promise!

Regardless of what you might hear, your child isn't going to just “grow out” of their sleep problems - it requires a certain level of intervention.

I want to help you and your baby enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep night after night after night.

  • Imagine feeling like your old self again – rested and refreshed and ready to tackle the day…
  • Imagine no longer dreading nighttime at your house…
  • Imagine not feeling grumpy and tired all the time…

I’m here today to tell you it is possible with my simple, easy-to-use method.

The Good News is That You Can Teach Your Child How to Sleep Without Letting Them Cry It Out Alone… And You Should See Results in Less Than 2 Weeks!

image-2

Even if you’re reading this thinking that your child is the worst sleeper ever and you have no idea how to fix it – it can be done.

But here’s the thing - yes, gentle sleep coaching is a system that works, but it has to be adjusted to YOUR family ... YOUR values ... YOUR lifestyle.

That means you need your very own Gentle Sleep Coach® – someone who understands my system inside and out and who can adapt it to your child and your situation.

As you know, no two children are the same. What works for one may not work as well for another. That’s where a good Gentle Sleep Coach® comes in to play.

I am on a personal mission to help 1,000,000 tired parents get a good night’s sleep by the year 2020.

I realized I couldn’t do this all alone, so in 2010 I started training Gentle Sleep Coaches® all over the world in my methods.

Now you can have your own Gentle Sleep Coach® help you!

Your coach will be able to make adjustments and ensure that your child is able to start sleeping through the night as fast as possible.

All of my coaches have clocked over 80 hours of training and have several years experience as sleep coaches. Many come from the pediatric healthcare field, too.

And they’ve all been personally trained by ME and my faculty panel of physicians, a psychologist and a lactation counselor.

I want you to work with someone that I would trust to sleep coach MY children.

With the guidance of your sleep coach, you’ll be able to get your baby sleeping better in a matter of days instead of going night after night with little to no sleep.

  3. Create a customized sleep plan that works for your child

Your Gentle Sleep Coach® can help because she will build a personalized plan that takes ALL of your unique
circumstances into consideration.

For Sleep Concerns

Let's Get Started!$395

For Behavior Concerns:

This package is right for you if you feel like any of these:

  • Do you feel like your child never listens to you?
  • Do you struggle to balance your child’s emotional, behavioral, physical and cognitive needs with his/her need for independence in your home?
  • Do you want to make listening, following directions, and independence a priority for your child, but just don’t know where to start?

Behavioral challenges can be a huge source of anxiety, fear, and anger for children and families. For parents with children with special needs, your consultation with Katie will focus on support, education, strategies and techniques as well as positive reassurance that this can work. You will learn important information about the science of behavior as it pertains to your child, how to support positive behavioral habits at home as well as in the community, and what to do when problems arise throughout the parenting process.

Questions?

If you need help figuring out which sleep package is right for you, check out our FAQs section first.
Simply click on the questions nearest to your question and the answer will appear in the drop down.

Do you offer a guarantee or refunds?

We can't make any guarantees but we can promise that if you use our sleep coaching plan and directives as outlined, you should see marked improvement, often in as few as 10-14 days (or even less!). We promise respectful, professional, courteous treatment from all of our Certified Gentle Sleep Coaches.

Please read more about our refund and cancellation policies HERE.

I want to discuss two children of different ages. Is there an additional fee?

There is. In certain situations, a sibling fee of $50 may be added for each additional sibling after a package has been purchased for the “primary" child.

The child who is experiencing more sleep issues would be considered the “primary” child. The sibling fee is applicable when you only have a few questions about another child’s sleep; or if all of your multiples will be sleep coached at the same time.

When a package is purchased with the additional sibling fee, only one history form may be submitted, and the initial consultation time will not extend.

We highly recommend the Platinum Sleep Package with the additional sibling fee of $50 in these cases.

If your babies are under 18 weeks: we strongly recommend the Newborn Phone Support package with the additional sibling fee of $50

What if I have a newborn and an older child who need help?

In cases where you have a newborn and an older child, the sleep issues they are experiencing are likely very different. We recommend that you purchase the Newborn Phone Support Package as well as either the Email Sleep Plan + Follow up or the Platinum package.

We will do our best to assign you one coach, though you may need to work with two coaches due to your children’s different ages. We want you to work with the coach who has the best training for your newborn.

I have multiple children who are not sleeping well.....can you help?

The short answer is YES!

If you have more than one child, both who are over 18 weeks old, there are two options. Please select the best option for your situation:

The Email Sibling Plan

Your coach will do a full review and evaluation of two history forms, creation of two customized sleep plans + 10 follow up emails $495

OR

Platinum Sleep Plan Plus

Your sleep coach will do a full review and evaluation of two history forms, plus a two hour initial consultation with creation of two customized sleep plans + 8 -up to 20 min phone follow up calls and + 4 follow up emails $795

Do I need to purchase more than one sleep plan?

It really depends on your situation. If you have multiple children who are not sleeping well, and their schedules are all over the map, then you will need to purchase a sleep plan with a history form for each child that you want your coach to help. For further explanation, go here.

If you have one child who is struggling, and another who has occasional issues, then you can take advantage of our sibling add on. The second child will not have their own history form, but you will be able to communicate with your sleep coach about their sleep and ask questions-the coaching just won’t be as in depth.

FOR BABIES AND CHILDREN 18 WEEKS TO 6 YEARS OLD

I’m tired of getting no sleep. I want someone to create a custom sleep plan for my child and support me through implementing it.

We can help! Depending upon the type of support you'd like to have, there are a two plans that should meet your needs. Each plan includes your very own Gentle Sleep Coach, a customized sleep plan, a 1:1 coaching consultation, and email follow ups.

Depending upon how much support you’d like to have while you implement your plan, you can choose from the following packages:

Email Sleep Plan with Follow Up Support

Platinum Sleep Support

I have your book and have started sleep coaching and have a question. Which package should I choose?

In that situation, an Email Exchange or the 30 min Phone Consult would be best. Simply choose your option based on whether you prefer an email, or to talk live to a Gentle Sleep Coach.

YOUR SITUATION IS COMPLICATED

I have tried sleep coaching unsuccessfully before…what makes this different?

I’m sorry to hear that you were not successful in your previous attempts. What makes our sleep plans unique is that you are involved in the creation process. Your personal Gentle Sleep Coach will use the sleep history you provide to create recommendations, and together you’ll develop a course of action. I suggest our Platinum Package so that you get the most support possible during the sleep coaching process.

I am exhausted and have no idea where to start. I need someone who really understands this stuff.

It sounds like you definitely need your very own Sleep Coach! I also recommend that you reivew our Platinum Package. You’ll have your very own sleep coach who will review your complete history form. You’ll then select a date and time for your 90 minute phone consultation.

You will have your consultation with your Gentle Sleep Coach who will create a customized sleep plan with you and coach you thru the sleep coaching process thru phone calls and emails.

My child has a special need. Do you have any experience or can you help me improve his/her sleep?

Yes! We have Katie Holloran, a Gentle Sleep Coach with her Masters in Special Education and Board Certified Behavior Analyst with over 15 years clinical and school-based experience with children with special needs.

Katie has helped families provide the sleep support their children with special needs need using supportive, developmentally-appropriate, and effective strategies and techniques.

Take a look at what these parents are saying
about my sleep coaching

“I think I love you! I am a formerly exhausted mother. I found your site by searching online for the middle road between cry it out and no tears solutions. I am simply AMAZED at how well your method worked for us.  My needy, grumpy little baby is now a happy, well-rested baby boy! Your method has definitely changed our lives!”

~ Michelle C.

I have practiced nothing but The Sleep Lady Shuffle techniques for both of my daughters. I had tried many other techniques, but nothing worked until I discovered “Good Night, Sleep Tight.” I just can’t say enough about how great this book and concept is!!! Thank you, Sleep Lady!

~ Tati F., mother of 2

We unknowingly created our daughter's sleep problems by never "teaching" her how to put herself to sleep...The "no cry" solution didn't work, and letting her "cry it out" was never an option. How could we ask our child to solve the problem by herself that we had created? With Kim's knowledge and thoughtful, caring approach, we were able to gently empower Sophia to put herself to sleep. Kim has an amazing gift to share and we tell all of our OB patients about her!

P.S. There are a lot of reasons why your efforts to get your child to sleep through the night have failed in the past – it’s not your fault! Maybe you tried at the wrong time, maybe you didn’t follow through, maybe you missed an underlying condition – your Gentle Sleep Coach® will carefully study and analyze your situation and develop a personalized plan to get you results! Click here to pick the sleep package for you.

Disclaimer:

I believe in running my business with absolute integrity. When describing actual results from my clients, the FTC requires that I also disclose what a “typical” result looks like. Certainly, some customers never follow through with the techniques and see no improvement, but if the thousands of thank you notes I’ve received over the years are any indication, these sleep plans work surprisingly well if you follow the instructions with your child.
