5star“Practical and effective advice” – by David Kamien, December 19, 2012

“I have been waiting for this book since my children were born. Finally practical strategies that help my children fall asleep quickly and wake up with a smile. Clearly Dr. Rosen, a sleep specialist at Harvard Childrens Hospital speaks from experience. I cannot recommend this book strongly enough. In fact, the advice in this great book is relavant to adults, as well as children.”

5star“Excellent Resource!” – By Pediatric Sleep Professional, September 1, 2013

“Not only is it a great resource for parents, but one for all those working pediatric sleep medicine-technologists and physicians! Recently we had a pediatric physician visit from India who wanted to learn more about sleep and your book would have been an excellent source for her! As a pediatric sleep technologist of 9 years (in the field 11 years), I found it to be beneficial in helping to understand the importance of making sure we obtain the sleep history questionnaires for our pediatric sleep physician. With this information they can truly recognize where the sleep problem lies. I appreciate your knowledge and I plan to share it with my own family, patients, parents and colleagues!”


5star“Definitely helpful. hoping it helps my three year old” – By Rachell Henning, February 16, 2014

“I purchased this book with the hope that it may provide insights into what is going on with my three year old and her sleep issues. I am hoping putting some of the suggestions to work will help reverse the year long battle we have been having trying to get her to go to sleep without getting up every 5 minutes.”
