I am a psychologist, my husband is a pediatrician—we figured we knew what to do—we didn't need "help." After reading every book I could find and turning to every parent for advice (even putting out pleas for help on Facebook) we still felt unsure of what "to do." Nothing seemed to work. Enter Sleep Sisters! I cannot recommend Sleep Sisters enough. —Anna, Philadelphia, PA

What is the best age to start sleep training?
At around 4 months, most babies can begin to organize their sleep into regular and longer daytime naps and consolidated nighttime sleep. But parents can begin to establish good sleep habits even before birth. We have tons of suggestions to help parents of newborns start their babies down the right path. That's a lot easier than correcting problems later on.
How much sleep does my baby need?

Have a child who won’t sleep? You are not alone!
We are here to help. We are the Sleep Sisters, Dr. Debbie Freidman Sasson and Melissa Freidman Zdrodowski. We provide supportive consulting services to help you and your kids get back to sleep. As working moms with young kids, we have both struggled through sleep training, teething, vacations, illnesses, potty training, and more. We know how tough it can be to parent to your children, manage your family and household, and succeed at your job when you aren’t getting enough sleep. Let our family help yours get the sleep your need.
