After months and months of work, we are thrilled (THRILLED!) to finally introduce you to our newest endeavor: meet Baby S.T.E.P.S. to Better Sleep, the baby sleep book that we think is going to revolutionize how you approach sleep coaching!
The Story Behind Baby S.T.E.P.S. To Better Sleep
When a publisher approaches you and asks you to write a book, instead of the other way around, you jump on it! That’s our opinion, and that’s the story behind this new book. Months ago, we were approached by Kiddy World publishing and asked to create a baby and toddler sleep book and put our unique stamp on it.
We said yes (it was actually more like “YES!!!!”), and then set to work creating a book that would combine the best of our current e-books with the kind of do-it-yourself sleep coaching help we offer in our Members Area.
And that’s how Baby S.T.E.P.S. to Better Sleep was born.
Here’s What Baby S.T.E.P.S. to Better Sleep Has To Offer
What’s new about this sleep book? In a word, everything! Other baby sleep books offer one-size-fits-all sleep coaching advice. It’s their way or the highway! Not so with Baby S.T.E.P.S. to Better Sleep.

What Are People Saying About Baby S.T.E.P.S. to Better Sleep?
We’re not the only ones who adore our book; hear what pediatrician Dr. Carolyn Nichols had to say about Baby S.T.E.P.S. to Better Sleep in the book’s foreword:
“It’s no accident that the first word of this book’s title is “baby”. That perfectly captures what’s so unique about this particular book, and what’s so unique about Nicole Johnson herself. Nicole’s approach to sleep coaching is so unique and so effective simply because she puts your baby first. Your child’s unique temperament, personality, and sleep challenges are at the forefront when you use Nicole’s sleep coaching approach.
I should know; I’ve experienced it firsthand! My oldest daughter did not sleep well. At a year of age, she still required attention many times during the night. I remember crying in the bookstore as I read sleep books that didn’t really address my individual needs. The books all implied there was only one right way and that I was failing if I didn’t do it that way. Someone finally referred me to Nicole’s website. The first thing I read was how children’s and parent’s temperaments need to be considered when developing a sleep plan. That was such a relief to me, and with that consolation, I was able to follow through with a plan that made sense for my family.
During my 10 years of experience as a pediatrician, I have seen first-hand the toll that chronic sleep deprivation takes on families. One of the most common concerns parents have is about their children’s sleep. Parents are often fighting with each other and feel they aren’t able to parent as well during the day because of sleep deprivation. Children are also not always able to function during the day when they are tired. When families are struggling with school or behavior issues, the first thing I ask them about is sleep.
Baby S.T.E.P.S. to Better Sleep is an excellent resource for exhausted parents of sleepless babies and toddlers. It gives parents all the tools they need to create a custom approach to sleep coaching; in fact, there’s an entire chapter that offers step-by-step instructions on how to create your own sleep coaching plan. The book also includes a number of helpful reference charts, including bedtimes and nap times, overall sleep needs by age, and sample daily sleep and feeding schedules. Best of all, however, is Nicole’s incredibly personal and down-to-earth tone. Throughout the book, Nicole weaves in stories from real parents just like you who have struggled with frustrating sleep issues – and she shares her own story of striving to help her firstborn son sleep, too.
I regularly recommend The Baby Sleep Site to parents. Parents tell me that the resources and plans helped them understand and improve both the child’s and parents’ sleep. I can’t thank Nicole enough for creating such a warm and thorough resource while encouraging parents to meet their goals without sacrificing what’s important to them.”
