Finally . . .
a sleep book about little ones who just won't.

Researcher and certified sleep coach, Macall Gordon, and the Sleep Lady, Kim West, offer a game-changing approach to shifting sleep behavior that actually works . . . even when nothing else has.


If nothing has worked for you so far,
you are not alone.


Based on extensive research and proven methods used with thousands of families just like yours, this guide gives you strategies tailored to your child’s unique temperament. Readers will learn:


  • Why popular sleep training techniques, don’t work for many children

  • How elements of temperament impact sleep behavior. . . and everything else.

  • How to create a plan for working on sleep that doesn't require you leaving them alone to cry.

  • How to rule out physiological or developmental roadblocks and assess sleep issues as they arise

Why Won't You Sleep? also offers lots of empathy and validation for parents because they are working harder on less sleep than any human should.

Early praise

"As an Infant and Perinatal Mental Health Counselor, I appreciate the dedication to research while also centering the knowledge that parents have of their own children. As a mother of a livewire myself, Macall beautifully sums up the experiences of sleep struggles for a kiddo who just won't sleep. If you want real strategies without being told you must be doing something wrong, then this is the book for you."
