The Good Science Sleep Guides

If you are looking for invaluable sleep advice, I highly recommend The Good Science Sleep Guides by Tracy Gillet. Here is information directly from her.


They have an impact. On your relationship with your child. On your attitude toward parenting. On your child’s mental and emotional development. 
We’re told, in western culture, that we need to follow a set of strategies. And that if we don’t, we’re setting ourselves up for failure and worse still, we’re failing our children. 
The rules are black and white. Solitary sleep. Drowsy but awake. Feed, play, sleep. Self-soothing. Sleep training. 

But, these rules don’t make sense to you. 

And they shouldn’t. Because they’re arbitrary. They are not backed by science. They are not rooted in developmental psychology. They are not supported by neuroscience. 

Your intuition tells you this. But, what if science agrees wholeheartedly? 

What if you had at your fingertips evidence-based bite-sized research that proves that not only are mainstream practices potentially harmful, but that gentle and responsive parenting is critical to the healthy development of your child? 

I’ve done the tireless research so you don’t have to.

I have spent the last six months studying over one hundred peer-reviewed journal articles on the science of infant and toddler sleep. I’m passionate about presenting you with the truth about biologically normal infant sleep so that you can make informed decisions based on the evidence, rather than being swayed by popular opinion. 
If you’re curious about your nighttime parenting options, want to make conscious choices or are seeking knowledge and support, then you’re in the right place.

baby sleeping on mother - full sleep series

I wrote The Good Science Guides, Sleep Series for you.


Motherhood isn’t meant to be spent worrying about what other people think or googling “is it ok to nurse my baby to sleep?”. 

I want you to relax in the knowledge that your choice to be responsive to your baby is the right one.

So, this is the series of guides that you can share with your paediatrician when he suggests that all bedsharing is dangerous. 

This is the series of guides you can share with your mother-in-law when she tells you that it’s time to sleep train. 
This is the series of guides you can share with your friend when she says you are creating a rod for your own back if you nurse your baby to sleep. 
This is the series of guides you can share with your husband when he’s worried that everyone else has a baby who sleeps through the night and yours doesn’t.

Why Sleep Training Might Not Work

Nighttime parenting isn’t a set of sleep strategies – it’s a relationship

  1. Those pillows are so cute! My son would probably love one of them. We use every single one of those good sleep props you mentioned. My son was not the greatest sleeper his first year, so we did absolutely everything we could to help him out. Fortunately, he does well now.

  2. Tips not just for toddlers, but grown ups, too!! I love black out shades, and use white noise when I have insomnia. Now all I need is My Happy Pillow, and I’m set 🙂

  3. I do the SAME thing! Black outs, white noise and lovey. They do 12 hours, since 3 months old. Sleep=Happy Mom!

  4. You have some great tips or getting the kids to sleep. I am extremely patient except when I lose sleep. Getting the young ones to sleep through the night is so important. The My Happy Pillows look like a great way to encourage a happy bedtime.

  5. Those pillows are so cute! I need to try some white noise for my daughter.. anytime she wakes up she walks right over to our bedroom! Maybe hearing some background noise would help her get back to sleep on her own!

  6. Black out blinds = best invention ever!!!! I’m guilty of falling into the whole co sleeping thing… But the day hubby and I were like enough! Black outblinds did help with keeping my child in her room lol.

  7. I agree rocking a child is a tough habit to break once your little one expects this is part of the routine. My child loves her security blanket. I think she would like the pillow as well. Great job Isabella for coming up with that idea.
