“I am a first-time mom, and boy was I surprised to learn that my daughter didn’t just fall asleep when she was tired. We had a lot of challenges getting her to fall asleep, then staying asleep. For the first 6 months, she rarely napped for more than 20 minutes during the day. She was always overtired, and I felt like I could never go anywhere because I had to be home all day for her naps. At night it would take about three hours to get her to bed. She would nurse, fall asleep, then we would put her in her crib, only for her to wake up and cry. So it would start all over again. She would even be crying while nursing or sucking our thumbs (she would never take a pacifier).

At 7 months we had had enough. We knew she wasn’t getting enough sleep and we didn’t want it to take a toll on her health. Our doctor said that she would always get enough sleep, that she would just sleep in her stroller or the car. Well, she never did that! She didn’t want to be rocked and we didn’t have a swing. The bouncy seat didn’t work. She had stopped falling asleep in the bjorn at about 4 months. So, with Nicole’s guidance, we worked on getting her to fall asleep unassisted. I could not have done any of this without Nicole’s help. I cannot say enough nice things about her! Her older son is one year older than my daughter and they have a lot in common, so she was able to share with me what she did to help him. Nothing beats the advice from a mom who’s been through it before!”

This e-Book is a good start to learning how to establish healthy sleep habits in your newborn, and there is no cost involved to give it a try.

When you have a newborn, you may expect to lose sleep. What you don’t expect is to continue to lose sleep, week after week and month after month. Many parents assume their babies will just sleep when they are tired, but this usually is not true. Parents also assume that their babies will eventually learn to sleep, but the truth is, not all children outgrow their sleep problems. As parents, we must promote healthy sleep habits the same way we promote healthy eating and study habits. And remember, good sleep is a key component of your baby’s growth and development. Let’s face it: cranky babies mean cranky parents, and cranky parents can quickly turn entire households upside down.

Where Can You Turn for Help?

When you are pregnant, well-meaning friends and family members are all likely to weigh in with the rights and wrongs of how to get your newborn to sleep. The same is true after you give birth and bring your newborn home from the hospital; you may find yourself buried under an avalanche of advice! Some of this information is founded in sleep science, while some of it is based on traditional wives tales. The rest is usually packed into 200-page books that promise to have your newborn sleeping perfectly in no time at all. The problem is, all that advice can be difficult to interpret, and those books often take weeks of dedicated reading. This can quickly become overwhelming, making your sleepless nights and bleary-eyed days even more difficult to face.

15 Baby Sleep Facts New Parents Need to Know, a new e-Book written by the childhood sleep experts from The Baby Sleep Site®, is a quick and easy solution for parents looking to bring a little more sleep into their lives. In the pages of this e-Book, we will reveal:

  • …how much sleep your newborn needs each day (and how to help your baby get it).
  • …why your newborn does not automatically fall asleep when tired.
  • …why your baby mixes up days and nights (and how to correct this problem).
  • …what colic is, and how to cope with it.
  • …how your newborn’s sleep patterns will change in the first few months of life.
  • …sample routines that will help promote sleep for your newborn.
  • …specific techniques to help your baby sleep soundly and deeply.

Your download also comes with a blank sample sleep plan; this sample plan will give you a great overview of exactly what our signature Personalized Sleep Plans® contain, and will help you see exactly how our expert consultants break down sleep coaching into simple steps.

15 Baby Sleep Facts New Parents Need to Know takes the best of the information contained in books, scientific studies, online forums, and first-hand experience and transforms it into one short e-Book that you can read in a single sitting.

15 Baby Sleep Facts New Parents Need to Know highlights the basics that every new parent needs to know about baby sleep, and it explains them in a straightforward, easy-to-understand way. Even better, the book leaves plenty of room for parents to follow their instincts, and to create their own philosophy of parenting and sleep – no one-size-fits-all approaches here!”

For pregnant moms (and their partners), this e-Book will be an invaluable resource to use in preparing for the realities of newborn sleep, and in establishing healthy newborn sleep habits from day one. For first-time parents who have recently given birth, 15 Baby Sleep Facts New Parents Need to Know will be a much-needed lifeline, and will answer the pressing sleep questions that new parents need answers to immediately. Even experienced parents can benefit from this e-Book; it can be used as a ‘refresher course’ for moms and dads who may have forgotten the details of the newborn stage, and it will be an excellent tool for parents who have dealt with challenging sleepers before, and who want to avoid chronic exhaustion and sleep-deprivation this time around!

For pregnant parents, new parents, and experienced parents, access to this kind of streamlined information is the first step toward great results. At the same time, you don’t want (and we do not recommend) a cookie-cutter approach to sleep patterns, since no two babies act – or sleep – the same way. 15 Baby Sleep Facts New Parents Need to Know offers the tips you need to establish healthy sleep habits from day one, but it also respects the unique ways in which you want your newborn to be raised.

I didn’t want to do cry-it-out

Michelle's BabyHi Nicole! I just wanted to thank you for all of your help and support in getting our 5 month old little girl to sleep! It had been a long 5 months of her waking up just about every 2 hours at night and we were at our wit’s end. We had even resorted to co-sleeping which worked in the beginning but became worse after a short time. She wouldn’t nap more than 20 minutes or so and was very clingy and needy.

I looked at several other websites and “sleep trainers” but I didn’t want to adhere to a strict cry it out routine. I started working on her naps after reading the guides on your website. She started sleeping a little better within 2 days and started to sleep about 3 hours at a time at night. So, I decided to buy the unlimited emailing for 1 week.

With our first email you had pinned our problem! We started immediately making the recommended changes and within 2 days she was sleeping all night!!! Not only did she sleep better (without resorting to cry-it-out), but she slept in her crib! She still woke of course to eat at around 3 am but we expected that! She is now napping much better and is not as clingy or cranky. She is a happy and rested baby now and so are mom and dad. 🙂 We could not have done it without you and we are so very grateful to have found you. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
