In 2013, I've been honored and feel blessed to have received two distinct awards for this website and the books. Happy and grateful for the recognition ... as passionate as ever to help you and your little loved ones sleep!

The NAPPA Award (National Parenting Publications Award) was granted for the entire website. The series of No-Tears Baby Sleep Books received the Mom's Choice Award. A little bit of info about both.

National Parenting Awards (NAPPA)

The seal for Nappa Awards Honors 2013

NAPPA's independent expert judges and parent testers yearly evaluate hundreds of submissions for their innovation, safety, quality and the degree to which they make parenting easier. In baby-sleep-advice.com - yours truly ... ;) - the jury "appreciated the wealth of gentle yet effective no-nonsense advice and techniques that are both realistic and successful".

There are plenty of resources in the market for parents looking for sleep advice for their baby or toddler,” reported one of the NAPPA judges, “however, this website does a nice job of sorting out the unnecessary information and providing parents with everything they need to know in a concise, easy to understand manner.”
