"Is your baby sleeping through the night?"

This is the worst question you could ever ask a parent. Seriously.

And news flash! Even if your child is sleeping through the night this week, that doesn’t mean they will be for much longer. Every other week, babies are teething, experiencing a growth spurt, or entering a dreaded sleep regression.

Bedtime, the Ultimate Battle is a concise and humorous tool that even the most sleep-deprived parents will love. It contains the meat and potatoes of sleep solutions for your baby that you can digest easily in the middle of the night, without worrying about heartburn.
Sleep is something all humans need, but at a point in every baby’s life, they will refuse to sleep like it’s their job. That leads to very exhausted parents and caregivers. Bedtime, the Ultimate Battle is written from the realistic perspective of a mom in the trenches—just like you. (And you, too, Dad.) It will provide you with dozens of easy, budget-friendly ways to help get your baby to sleep, gathered from the most recommended parenting books, blogs, and viral posts. Melissa has done the research so you don't have to spend precious time desperately Googling during your next 3 a.m. wake-up call.
Bedtime, the Ultimate Battle includes more than ninety tips and tricks and discusses common nighttime hurdles such as:

  • Sleep training
  • Getting baby to nap when they don’t want to
  • Weaning babies who breastfeed to sleep
  • Handling sleep regressions like a champ
  • and more!
