A clear and practical guide to settling older babies 6-18 months, produced in conjunction with respected Child & Family Health organization, Karitane. Research has shown that problematic childhood sleep behaviour can have long lasting effects with difficulties in later childhood and adult life. Asleep at Last! presents very practical sleeping and settling suggestions to parents and at the same time, gives a realistic picture of what to expect with the new settling strategies. Babies respond better if thy are not left along for log periods of time when settling, so the Six Steps to Settling section provides a strong focus on ensuring the baby does not feel abandoned. The program relates personal experiences of parents from culturally diverse backgrounds, to demonstrate the impact of sleeping difficulties. This 20 minute program, available on both video and DVD, is an extremely useful resource that both parents and health professionals can utilize. CONTENTS: 1. How much sleep? 2.
