Your Child’s Sleep Questions Answered

It has been a while since I had a baby in the house (almost 5 years, in fact….) but as a mother of five I did my time – I had a child under 2 from 1996 to 2007. That’s quite a few years without much sleep.

During those long baby years, I looked forward to the day when I could sleep through the night without waking up with a child, changing wet diapers in the morning, or finding a child asleep between my husband and me in my bed.

Sadly, I’m still looking forward to that day.

Of all the challenges of parenting children, getting my kids to fall asleep when they are supposed to and then sleep soundly through the night is one of those mysteries that I have yet to figure out.

The Sleep Sense Program

Dana Obleman, creator of “The Sleep Sense Program” has helped more than 28,000 parents like you answer questions about their child’s sleep since 2003.

Dana addresses question such as:


  • How do I get my child to sleep through the night (11 – 12 hours)?
  • Can I get my child to sleep without relying on nursing, bottles, soothers, or rocking?
  • What can I do to stop my child from waking up during the night?
  • How can I get my child to take long, restful naps during the day?
  • Can I permanently put an end to frustrating bedtime battles with my stubborn toddler? (Yes, you can!)
  • What do I do to get my child out of my bed – and into their own room?
  • How can I make bedtime feel safe, comfortable and fun for my child?


In addition to the entire “Sleep Sense Program” (which includes a 49-page workbook, the video resource library, the “Sleep Sense Hotline” access, and the Sleep Tracker), Dana’s also has a blog with video responses to parents’ questions.

Plus, parents can get a free customized sleep assessment for their child.

    How can I get my 4 year old to sleep through the night? I feel like I have seriously tried everything, she has two special stuffies, we’ve tried a hundred different nightlights because she claims to be scared of the dark, we’ve tried warm milk before bed, and “white noise”…. Nothing is working… She only sleeps well if she’s sleeping in my bed or with me or her dad. (we did sleep with her when she was a baby) but I can tell she really isn’t sleeping well (has dark circles under her eyes) – I can get up to put her back in bed upto 4 or 5 times in a night… When we got home from visiting her cousin in cali she slept in her own bed all night every night for two weeks and then all of a sudden it stopped (but nothing changed…) Im not sure why or how she wakes up so much but she does… My 1.5 year old sleeps better than she does.
