Books on Sleep Issues for Adoptive Parents

Books about Sleep Issues

Sleepless in America

Sleepless in America by Mary Sheedy Kurcinka – What I like about Kurcinka’s books, including this one, is that they are practical and seem to honor well the balance between what is best for the child and what is best for parents. I interviewed the author on the Creating a Family radio show.





The No-Cry Sleep Solution

The No-Cry Sleep Solution for Toddlers and Preschoolers by Elizabeth Pantley – There is a section in this book on sleep issues with adopted kids. I interviewed Elizabeth on the Creating a Family radio show.





Solve Your Child's Sleep Problems

Solve Your Child’s Sleep Problems by Richard Ferber – Parents either love or hate Ferber’s approach, but it is often misrepresented as simply a “let them cry it out” approach, which it is not.






Healthy Sleep Habits Happy Child

Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child by Marc Weissbluth







Helping Your Child Sleep Through The Night

Helping Your Child Sleep Through the Night by Joanne Cuthbertson and Susanna Schevill  – Although this is an older resource, I think the advice has stood the test of time, even if you have to update the “put babies to sleep on their stomach” advice.
