Publisher's Summary

Does your child: Have difficulty falling asleep? Wake in the middle of the night? Suffer sleep terrors, sleepwalking, or nighttime fears? Have difficulty waking for school or staying awake in class? Snore, wet the bed, or head bang?

In the first major revision of his best-selling, groundbreaking classic, Dr. Richard Ferber, the nation's foremost authority on children's sleep problems, delivers safe, sound ideas for helping your child fall and stay asleep at night and perform well during the day.

Incorporating new research, Dr. Ferber provides important basic information that all parents should know regarding the nature of sleep and the development of normal sleep and body rhythms throughout childhood. He discusses the causes of most sleep problems from birth to adolescence and recommends an array of proven solutions for each so that parents can choose the strategy that works best for them.

Topics covered in detail include:

  • Bedtime difficulties and nighttime wakings
  • Effective strategies for naps
  • Sleep schedule abnormalities
  • A balanced look at co-sleeping
  • New insights into the nature of sleep terrors and sleepwalking
  • Problems in setting limits

    "It Worked!"
    Any additional comments?

    This was well worth a credit to start sleeping well again. It quickly helped me identify my child's sleep problem. We were all getting much better sleep in just 3 nights of using some of the techniques. After one week, our child was sleeping through the night and has been for several weeks now.

    "Great science-based resource for parents"

    If you, like me, would only listen to science-backed argumentations and you also are going through the emotional rollercoaster of expecting a child, I really cannot recommend this book enough.
    Getting ready to tackle all sleep-related problems thanks to the expert suggestions of a sleep clinic professional is priceless, especially when as it is usual, you are surrounded by many people giving you unsolicited, trivial and unscientific advice.

    This narration is just a bit too slow, but it is clear and free of any major errors.

    "The narrator was TERRIBLE"
    Where does Solve Your Child's Sleep Problems rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I couldn't make it through the book because of the narrator's voice. My review is not about the book itself, it's the narrator.


    What didn’t you like about George K. Wilson’s performance?

    It's a book about sleep and the narrator's voice was so monotone and boring I thought he was going to put ME to sleep! Maybe I should just play this in my kid's room to get her to sleep better.
