The Sleep Lady's Good Night Sleep Tight Book

The Sleep Lady's Good Night, Sleep Tight


By: Kim West
$15.95

Kim West is known for The Sleep Lady Shuffle, a method that encourages your baby to put herself to sleep using a gentle cry-it-out technique. West believes that only babies six months or older should be sleep trained.

The Sleep Lady Shuffle, also known as a "camping out" method, calls for you to put your child to bed while still awake, and verbally comforting her while sitting in a chair next to her crib. Every few nights, move your chair a little farther out of the room, while continuing to speak soothingly your child. The final step has you sitting outside of her room, out of view.

West asserts that within a couple weeks of using her strategy, you should be able to put your baby to bed and leave the room, and your baby will know how to put herself to sleep.
