This guide will help you with gentle sleep training strategies that are specific to your child in a bed - we don’t want you locking the door and letting your child cry it out alone in their room!

Gentle Sleep Solutions saved our life, our business, our relationship, and our sanity! … Kim West's Gentle Sleep Solutions online course was a total game-changer for our family. We watched all the videos and followed her advice to a T. Now our son is sleeping through the night, 12 hours straight, and taking two 90 minute naps during the day. Mom and Dad are also sleeping through the night once again, and as a result, we are all so much happier, so much more productive, and FINALLY able to enjoy our time together as a family, and as a couple. Thank you Kim West for creating this awesome program! You're a true gift to parents and babies everywhere!"

I have a 16-month-old who was still not sleeping through the night and waking me repeatedly. We followed The Sleep Lady® Shuffle recommendations and it really worked. I almost can't believe it. We now have a nightly routine, put our son in his crib and walk out of the room and he lies down and goes to sleep. He also now sleeps all night.
