The Sleep Lady® Kim West, LCSW-C, creator of the gentle sleep training method, The Sleep Lady Shuffle, for parents who struggle to get their children to sleep and back to sleep, has launched the Gentle Sleep & Parenting Center to provide online sleep consultations to help both children and their parents to get the sleep they need for healthier, happier lives.

THE Baby and Child Gentle Sleep Coaching Book

I have been on a mission to provide parents all over the world proven, achievable, Gentle Sleep solutions--where you don’t have to let your child cry it out alone.

On the Gentle Sleep & Parenting Center website, parents can get their emailed sleep questions answered in 24 hours and a customized sleep plan in 48 hours along with a Gentle Sleep Coach® to coach them through the entire sleep coaching process.

The Gentle Sleep & Parenting Center features three customized sleep tracks, one for babies under 18 weeks, one for babies older than 18 weeks and one for babies with special needs. Each individualized track features multiple programs a parent can choose and factors in a child’s temperament, the family’s parenting philosophies and each family’s unique situation and family life, allowing the Center’s Gentle Sleep Coaches to offer customized and responsive support. The Center also offers parenting and potty training consultations.

New parents in particular lose sleep every night, affecting their quality of life and increasing day-to-day frustrations. Leveraging digital technologies and her team of trained Gentle Sleep Coaches, West can now provide parents and other caregivers with help when they need it the most, in the comfort of their own homes and with qualified specialists who are just a few keystrokes away. Each Gentle Sleep Coach has completed an extensive training program created by West, complete with a faculty panel consisting of a two physicians, a psychologist and lactation counselor.

“I developed my more gradual gentle method because I found so many parents had difficulty following through with a cry-it-out program that they fear will damage their child emotionally or fill them with so much guilt they couldn’t follow through,” West said. “That is why for more than 20 years, I have been on a mission to provide proven, achievable, Gentle Sleep solutions--where you don’t have to let your child cry it out alone--to parents everywhere.”
