Front Cover
Simon and Schuster, 1985 - Family & Relationships - 251 pages

You've tried everything. Warm milk. Bedtime stories. Sharing your bed. But your child still has problems falling asleep. Dr. Richard Ferber can help. Director of the Sleep Laboratory and Center for Pediatric Sleep Disorders at Children's Hospital in Boston, Dr. Ferber is widely recognized as the nation's leading authority on children's sleep problems.

Practical and easy to understand, Solve Your Childs' Sleep Problems tells you how to handle these situations in children aged one to six:

* Refusing to go to bed
* Colic and other medical problems
* Restlessness and insomnia
* Night terrors
* Bedwetting
* Headbanging and body rocking

And other problems that keep you and your child awake in the night.

Based on six years of intensive research in a top medical facility, Solve Your Child's Sleep Problems is packed with tips, suggestions, sample problems and solutions, and a bibliography of children's "go-to-sleep" books.
