Getting your child to sleep-- and back to sleep: tips for parents of infants, toddlers and preschoolers
This practical guide provides a wealth of hints to help a sleepless child get that much-needed rest. Whether it's colic, crying, bedtime, naptime, bad dreams, or the inevitable "I need a drink of water," the author suggests an innovative solution, from capturing the "scary monster" in a paper bag to discouraging sleepwalking with a bell on the doorknob. The book also discusses how parents can cope with their own loss of sleep and when, or whether, to let the baby into their bed.
