I remember how clueless I felt when gearing up to feed my first baby. I was given all sorts of advice that made my head want to explode. Because I loved my baby so much, I wanted to give her the best. As a dietitian, I decided to dig into the research and have kept up with it ever since (my baby was born 10 years ago!). Since that time,…

Praise for the Sleep Lady
I just wanted to write to you and say Thank You for writing such a wonderful book. I have a 6 month old who was still nursing 4 times a night and ending up in our bed. She now sleeps 12 hours through the night in her own crib. I sing your praises to anyone who will listen. I loved the way you didn't have one way to do things. I was able to pick what was best for us, which I loved. So Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!!

THANK YOU. Your book is amazing and I never thought our son could go to sleep alone and sleep through the night. We are a changed family!! My husband joked that he is going to build a "Sleep Lady" statue. Thanks again!
Just wanted to pass on my thanks and the good news. I read Kim West's book, and my 12 month old (breast fed baby) is now falling asleep on his own and sleeping through the night. It just took a week. Thanks again! Now if we could only get him to let us sleep in on the weekends!

Sleep! I barely slept for almost 3 years after the birth of my daughter. I did so many things wrong for all the right reasons! I came across Kim West's book, "Good Night, Sleep Tight" and it made such a difference in helping my daughter to become a good sleeper and how I handled all the sleep issues with my second baby. The best thing about this book is that it tells you what is "normal" for babies and children at each age/stage, and then helps you form reasonable expectations for your child's sleep. And HOW to solve nearly every sleep problem in a compassionate, nurturing, and loving manner. Reading this book before your baby is born is one of the best things an expectant mom can do, and she will reference it over and over as her child grows, because it deals with sleep issues for older children as well. Every baby shower gift I give is this book!
