Brady Recommends: Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child


Is a little one keeping you awake at night?  Wish you could get more sleep?  Does your child not sleep well?  Is your child unhappy? If so, this book my be just what you need to help you and your child get better sleep and as a result be happier!

I think each set of parents has a ‘hill they’re willing to die for’ in regards to raising kids.  For my husband and I, it is ensuring our kids are well rested.   I’m sure lots of people don’t understand when we refuse to go out to an event because it is close to naptime or bedtime.  We feel a bit alienated as we get looks of unbelief when we lay our baby down at 6:00 PM for the night.  It’s worth it to us, though, because we know they’re happier kids because of it!

Rest is vital to your child’s health growth and development. Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child outlines proven strategies that ensure good, healthy sleep for every age.  We LIVE by this book and it definitely works for us!  Both of our boys have responded well to a very regimented sleep schedule – they both sleep around 12 hours per night and take long naps during the day.  As a result, our 3 year old is a very joyous and good tempered boy.  While some of this may be his personality, we feel good sleep habits have a lot to do with it.

Book Contents:
  • Analyzes ways to get your baby to fall asleep according to his internal clock–naturally
  • Reveals common mistakes parents make to get their children to sleep–including the inclination to rock and feed
  • Explores the different sleep cycle needs for different temperaments–from quiet babies to hyperactive toddlers
  • Emphasizes the significance of a nap schedule
  • Pinpoints the way daytime sleep differs from night sleep and why both are important to your child
  • Helps you cope with and stop the crybaby syndrome, nightmares, bedwetting, and more

One thing we really like about the book is that it is broken up into age ranges so if you want to find out quickly what you should be doing to help your child sleep better at a certain age, you can just read the couple of pages for the corresponding age.  Then, when you have time, you can go back and read the rest of the book and find out the reasoning behind the instructions.  It really is a lifestyle change.
