Dr. Elana interviews guest Kim West also known as the Sleep Lady! We know how big of a pain point sleep can be for parents - whether you have an infant waking every 2 hours to eat or a 5-year-old that won’t stay in her room all night and finds her way into your bed - WE GET IT! We’ve been there, done that, and still doing it!!! 

Sleep training is not the most fun part of parenting but when you feel it is time for a change it can really help transform the entire family's life! 

Now… we heard from MANY of you that the crying it out method doesn’t resonate with you. Well, I am right there with you Mama - who wants to hear their little ones crying for hours on end? It is torture!

Well… did you know there is another approach?! It is called a Gentle Sleep Coaching Method!

We wanted to share this approach with you so we chose Kim West to be our expert guest today. Author of 3 books on sleep, appearances on Dr. Phil, the Today Show, NCB Nightly News, Good Morning America - just to name a few - Kim has successfully helped thousands of parents all over the world get a good night’s sleep WITHOUT letting their children cry it out alone.
