The Gentle Sleep Solution shows you the powerful yet gentle way to help your baby enjoy a good night's sleep. Drawing on CBT and mindfulness, this new book moves away from outdated approaches to ensure that your child feels comforted, reassured and loved as they drift off to sleep.This supportive guide, written by psychologist and CBT psychotherapist Chireal Shallow, teaches parents how to become experts in resolving their child's sleep problems. You'll first learn how to identify the underlying reason for your child's troubled sleeping by reading their behaviour, then apply new techniques for communicating and responding to reduce their anxiety and allow them to fall asleep independently. Offering an alternative to controlled crying, this approach gives your family a calm, happy and gentle bedtime. Positive, uplifting and nurturing, The Gentle Sleep Solution will give you and your baby the confidence you need to sleep soundly.
