While there are plenty of resources available to establish healthy sleeping patterns for infants and babies, there's hardly any guidance for handling preschoolers and elementary school kids who are still fighting sleep. Become Your Child's Sleep Coach, focusing on this older demographic of children, meets that need, providing parents with straightforward advice: first, an awareness of the two biggest mistakes that parents make (staying with children until they fall asleep and allowing too many callbacks and curtain calls), followed by a five-step program:

Step 1: Prepare your child's bedroom for great sleep
Step 2: Use the 5B Bedtime Routine to calm and settle your child at bedtime
Step 3: Allow your child to learn to self-comfort with the Bedtime Buddy and Bedtime Basket and taper your presence from your child's room
Step 4: Manage behaviors that happen after the 5B Bedtime Routine is over
Step 5: Manage night and early morning wakings

In addition to her extremely successful five-step program, Dr. Schneeberg addresses several common questions and concerns parents may have about their child's sleep -- how many hours they really need, deciding what the ideal bedtime for their child is, deciding on managing the transition from a crib to a toddler bed, using a white noise machine, handling sleep during potty training, the use of melatonin and sleep aids, dealing with night terrors and other sleep issues, and beyond. Become Your Child's Sleep Coachis every parent's guide to better sleep for children and the whole family!
