Helping Your Baby to Sleep Book


Nearly two decades ago, my oldest friend Anni Gethin and I found ourselves worrying about the kinds of advice being given to parents about sleep; specifically to ‘teach’ their babies to sleep by leaving them to cry. We were concerned that this advice was at odds with decades of research underscoring the developmental importance of sensitive responsiveness to children’s cries.

We began to research and write articles and speak about the issue at conferences around Australia. Before we knew it, we were offered the chance to write a book with Finch Publishing. In 2007 Helping Your Baby to Sleep: Why Gentle Techniques Work Best was published in Australia, and then in America in 2010, and Russia in 2011. The third edition came out in 2015.
