Win the Battle Against Bedtime!
When Dr. Craig Canapari, Director of the Yale Pediatric Sleep Center, became a father, he realized that even three years of 36-hour hospital shifts couldn’t prepare him for the extreme sleep deprivation that comes with parenthood. Now, with IT’S NEVER TOO LATE TO SLEEP TRAIN (On-sale May 7, 2019), Dr. Canapari is putting his years of experience into action, compiling a new guide to help make sleep training easier for other parents.
IT’S NEVER TOO LATE TO SLEEP TRAIN is aimed to help parents of children aged 6 months through 6 years, bucking the notion that older children are outside the optimal “window” for sleep training. In his new guide, Dr. Canapari helps parents harness the power of habit to chart a clear path to high-quality sleep for their children, and in turn, the whole family. The result is a streamlined two-step sleep training plan that focuses on cues and consequences, the two elements that shape all habits and that take on special importance when it comes to kids’ bedtime routines.
With a readable, friendly, and relatable tone, Dr. Canapari’s approach is never judgmental. He is on the parents’ side of the battle against bedtime, and is here to prove it’s never too late for families to get a good night’s rest every night.
Dr. Craig Canapari, M.D., is Director of the Yale Pediatric Sleep Center and an attending physician in Pediatric Pulmonology at Yale-New Haven Hospital. He served previously as Director of the Pediatric Sleep Center at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.
IT’S NEVER TOO LATE TO SLEEP TRAIN offers many helpful tools and advice for sleepy parents, including:
- Setting an effective bedtime cue and a linear routine that winds your child down effectively
- Breaking bad sleep habits that may be forcing you into “survival strategies”
- Handling environmental challenges like a noisy apartment or siblings who share a room
- Managing fear of the dark, separation anxiety, tantrums, and more
