52 Sleep Secrets For Babies by Kim West LCSW-C, The Sleep Lady®

This book was written for all those thousands of new parents who are searching for sleep secrets to prevent sleepless nights down the road. If Kim could pick only one secret she says it would be to fall in love with your baby and gently teach the skill of putting himself or herself to sleep. A priceless gift that lasts a lifetime.

  • More than 11,000 babies are born every day in the United States. Their parents prepare the room, buy all the equipment and diapers, go to birthing classes, find a pediatrician and anxiously await their arrival. Rarely do these parents have any preparation for the sleep deprivation before them.
  • As The Sleep Lady®, a mother and clinical social worker for 15 years, Kim West experienced this sleep deprivation personally and has listened to countless parents complain of their sleepless nights…. well past their baby’s third month. Three months is the magic age we are told our babies will sleep through the night.
  • So many new parents say they were unprepared, they wonder why they were never told that sleep could be so difficult to get, that their baby would not effortlessly learn to put themselves to sleep independently. They wait …..and they pace, they bounce, they rock, they feed, in hopes of elusive sleep. They call, write and ask for magic or “secrets” to help their babies sleep. “What’s the secret, Sleep Lady?” they plead.
