Waking up Dry: A Guide to Help Children Overcome Bedwetting

Gentle Proven Solutions to Help Your
Child Sleep Well and Wake Up Happy

Kim West, LCSW-C, known as The Sleep Lady®, has developed a gentle and effective approach to helping infants and young children learn to put themselves to sleep without letting them "cry it out"—an option that is not comfortable for many parents.

This book, newly revised and updated, tells parents everything they need to know about sleep from newborns up through age five. It helps parents gently guide their young babies into good sleep rhythms from the start, laying the groundwork so that they can learn to “sleep through the night” It gives tips on breast feeding, night weaning older babies, scheduling meals and naps, and helping children discard the “sleep crutches” that make them wake during the night. For older children, the Sleep Lady system helps parents learn when the child is ready to move from a crib to a bed, when to consolidate two naps into one, or how and when to give up naps altogether. It helps parents decide whether, and for how long, to "co-sleep" or "room share," and how and when to move a baby or toddler into his or her own room.

Essential reading for any tired parent, or any expectant parent who wants to minimize sleeplessness, The Sleep Lady’s Good Night, Sleep Tight offers a practical, easy-to-follow remedy that will work for all families in need of peaceful slumber!
