WASHINGTON (PRWEB) February 07, 2023
Kim West MSW, “The Sleep Lady’s Gentle Newborn Sleep Guide” book is now available for preorder; officially on sale March 21st, 2023. The book provides tried and true ways to help newborns (and parents) get to sleep….without leaving them to cry it out.
The book introduces ‘Baby-Led Sleep Shaping and Coaching’, a gentle approach that parents can use to shape their babies' sleep and when developmentally ready, coach their baby to fall asleep and stay asleep on their own. This method significantly differs from other popular and difficult to follow thru with methods such as ‘Cry-it-Out which require parents to ignore their baby’s cries’. The book offers parents actionable steps they can take while learning myths they can let go of with easily digestible chapters they can follow along with each month. Monthly chapters explore topics such as how feeding can impact your infant's sleep, safely co-sleeping, key development milestones, parent well-being, and methods based on the infant's developmental readiness.
For the past three decades, Kim West, known around the world as The Sleep Lady®, has helped over 20,000 families gently teach their children how to fall asleep– and fall back asleep— without leaving them to cry it out alone. Now with The Sleep Lady’s Gentle Newborn Sleep Guide she and her Gentle Sleep Team provide clear guidance for babies 0-5 months old and a safe haven free from judgment, guilt and criticism for parents seeking options that align with their parenting values and beliefs.

“In this book, I will offer tips for how to sleep shape and support your baby as they learn to sleep starting right from birth, but I recommend waiting to gently sleep coach them until they are developmentally ready. This book will help you assess when that is, based on your baby’s unique temperament and current capabilities and teach you the tools and techniques you need to create a strong foundation for future sleep success.” Kim West
