Worked great
By Jennifer MacFarlane

"We researched ALL the sleep books and decided on this one. Her system worked in 3 days! Our daughter really "learned" how to sleep…so grateful for this knowledge and the gentle approach to sleep training."

Finally! A system that worked for us!

"I tried crying-it-out with my baby and it felt like it broke both of us. I tried no-cry and it was like walking on egg shells with total sleep deprivation. This book is a gentle compromise between the two methods. I really appreciated that the author talks about the "exceptions" and basically every possible scenario. I highly recommend this book to parents of sleepless children at any age!!!"

Best method out there
By Kathryn Henry

"Finally a method that worked for us! My son was 14 months and still waking up 3+ times a night to nurse. When I started this method with him it was like he wanted to learn how to sleep. It only took 2 weeks and he is a rock star sleeper AND I can put him in his crib awake at night and he talks himself to sleep. This book step by step leads you through it all and gives you the freedom to do what you only feel comfortable with."

Perfect for a busy {tired} mom
By Lindsay Chung

"If you read my review of The Sleep Lady's Good Night Sleep Tight, you know that I absolutely love her technique. I was having some terrible trouble getting my girls to go to bed and sleep through the night and was in desperate need of some help. I followed her techniques and was able to consistently sleep until my alarm went off. That was unheard of in my home.

Newborn Sleep (0-5 months)

Newborns bring a lot of joy, and a lot of work. They're completely dependent on you for everything. They need to eat around the clock, they don't know how to fall asleep independently, or self-sooth.

While your baby may not be ready for sleep training until about 6 months, that doesn't mean you can't prepare or encourage good sleep behaviors now. I have a lot of free resources and tips to gently help your newborn create a solid sleep foundation.


Baby Sleep (6-12 months) 

This is an exciting time in your baby's life where they become more mobile, sprout teeth, experience social anxiety, and many start to sleep through the night. But if your baby is used to being rocked, nursed, or walked to sleep, it is time to discard those sleep crutches and begin sleep training, gently.

Not only do we have an abundance of articles to help with baby sleep, we also offer Gentle Sleep Solutions - an eCourse to teach your baby to sleep. These new sleep changes may bring some tears, but you don't need to let your little one cry it out alone, thanks to The Sleep Lady's gentle approach to sleep coaching.

Toddler Sleep (13-30 months) 

Early toddlers are prone to behavioral sleep problems, while older toddlers test our rules and their limits. Nightmares and night terrors may start, as well as nap transitions, tantrums, and potty training, only further complicating bedtime.

Learn how to work through all of these toddler challenges and get them napping and sleeping through the night again with our free articles. Or take a deeper dive with Gentle Sleep Solutions, which goes step-by-step on sleep training your toddler for both night sleep and naps!

Children's Sleep (2.5 - 6 years)

Children need a lot of sleep, but they're clever at figuring out reasons not to get it. This age requires toddler sleep techniques as well as new ones specifically catering to this older, more verbal age group who are often in a bed.

Some problems parents may be experiencing during this time also may date back to infancy and take time to resolve. We can help you with all of them! You can either read our free articles, or try Gentle Sleep Solutions, which is the only sleep training course for children in beds!

P.S. There are a lot of reasons why your efforts to get your child to sleep through the might 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.

I guarantee that my programs above will give you the tools and support you need to change your child's sleep for the better. If you are unsatisfied for any reason, simply send me a message to support@sleeplady.com. I'm committed to creating a pivotal and positive change for you and your child.


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.
