One of the country's leading researchers updates his revolutionary approach to solving--and preventing--your children's sleep problems

Here Dr. Marc Weissbluth, a distinguished pediatrician and father of four, offers his groundbreaking program to ensure the best sleep for your child. In Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child, he explains with authority and reassurance his step-by-step regime for instituting beneficial habits within the framework of your child's natural sleep cycles. This valuable sourcebook contains brand new research that

- Pinpoints the way daytime sleep differs from night sleep and why both are important to your child
- Helps you cope with and stop the crybaby syndrome, nightmares, bedwetting, and more
- Analyzes ways to get your baby to fall asleep according to his internal clock--naturally
- Reveals the common mistakes parents make to get their children to sleep--including the inclination to rock and feed
- Explores the different sleep cycle needs for different temperaments--from quiet babies to hyperactive toddlers
- Emphasizes the significance of a nap schedule

Rest is vital to your child's health growth and development. Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child outlines proven strategies that ensure good, healthy sleep for every age. Advises parents dealing with teenagers and their unique sleep problems

A pediatrician with thirty-two years of experience, Marc Weissbluth, M.D., is also a leading researcher on sleep and children. He founded the original Sleep Disorders Center at Chicago’s Children’s Memorial Hospital and is a professor of clinical pediatrics at Northwestern University School of Medicine. Dr. Weissbluth discovered that sleep is linked to temperament and that sleeping problems are related to infant colic. His landmark seven-year study on the development and disappearance of naps highlighted the importance of daytime sleep. In addition to his own research, he has written about sleep problems in manuals of pediatrics, lectured extensively to parent groups, and appeared on Oprah. Dr. Weissbluth has four sons, two grandsons, and, thankfully, one granddaughter–and they are all good sleepers. Linda, his wife of more than forty years, has provided both inspiration and original ideas for this book.

  • Best Sleep Book out there

    I have used this book since baby #1, and I now have 4 children. I tried Baby Wise (with baby #1), and it went against every motherly instinct I had (like "don't rock your baby to sleep", and "wake him up to feed him"). Healthy Sleep Habits is logical, common sense stuff that supports what decisions you choose to make with regard to raising your child. This is a very easy read, and also in sections by age and sections that discuss sleep problems or situations that come up that can affect sleep (like teething). I LOVE this book, and keep several copies on hand to give away as gifts for a new mom. I refer to it over and over again, when my babies reach a new stage of their sleep habits. To this day, my first child is my worst sleeper, and the following 3 have been very easy to train since going along with the advice and tips in this book.

    This book completely changed my 8 month old son. He was a somber, straight-faced little guy until I started implementing these ideas. He soon became a great sleeper, which completely changed his attitude as well. I'm now using it to prevent sleep problems in my newborn. It is not a book that straight out tells you what to do. The author is a sleep researcher so he explains the anatomy of sleep to help you better understand your own child's needs. He offers strategies for different types of children and problems. I recommend this book to all my friends that are having babies.

  • Informative and reassuring

    I like to describe myself as being a mommy with a balance of both "attachment parenting" and "routine" approach. When my daughter was born, I knew that I wanted to be her constant comfort, to keep her close to me often, but I also wanted to make sure that I didn't go to the extreme and ignore the needs of her body in the process! This book does an EXCELLENT job of teaching about the neurological development process of children, and how to discern their sleep needs from birth through adolescence. The approach is very common sense and reasonable, without the author trying to force a "one-size-fits-all", rigid format onto every child!
