The Happy Sleeper Sleep Class: for babies 4-24 months
Many parents feel pressured to “train” babies and young children to sleep. But kids don’t need to be trained to sleep, they’re built to sleep.
In The Happy Sleeper class, authors and sleep experts Heather Turgeon and Julie Wright will teach parents how to be sensitive and nurturing, but also clear and structured, so babies can develop the self-soothing skills they need to:
- Fall asleep independently
- Sleep through the night
- Take healthy naps
- Grow into natural, optimal sleep patterns for day and night
You will leave this class with a clear, sensitive sleep plan for your baby.
Heather Turgeon is a psychotherapist who writes about child development and parenting. Her work has appeared in The New York Times and The Washington Post, and she’s a writer for the National Sleep Foundation.
Julie Wright is a psychotherapist and one of Los Angeles’ best known parenting group leaders. She has taught thousands of moms in her Wright Mommy and Me groups.
Heather and Julie are co-authors of The Happy Sleeper: The Science-Backed Guide to Helping Your Baby Get a Good Night’s Sleep–Newborn to School Age (Penguin Random House).
