Book Launch | Meet the Author of Creating Sweet Dreams
Saturday, July 29th at 7PM
Book Launch | Industry Networking | Social
Hurrah! Kudos! Congrats! Yippie!
Author Rachelle Gerhskovich is celebrating the launch of Creating Sweet Dreams, her accessible and essential new parent guidebook on all things sleep, nutrition and baby development.
The book is profound in its unique take. Rachelle recommends not using rigid schedules (and rather a loose and flexible routine), letting your baby speak to you, using tools like red lights to reduce light sensitivity and implementing strategies based on weight (not necessarily age every time). Creating Sweet Dreams is also groundbreaking and praised by parents who have successfully used Rachelle’s guidance.
Come join us at the BookBar on Tennyson Street for a social gathering to celebrate Rachelle and her first book launch. We would also love to gather with industry professionals in the birth and family field to grow our network and support each other’s projects and goals.

Praise for Creating Sweet Dreams by Rachelle Gershkovich:
“Okay, so I normally don’t write reviews, but I had to after reading this book. I was able to get through the content quickly (and to be honest, I sometimes have a hard time focusing when reading), so basically the content was well laid out for me where I could understand it. Along with the graphics and charts, it made me truly understand how feeding schedules based on the weight of your baby can make a huge impact of whether you get sleep or not.
Sleep is important for me because I work every day. I need to be able to be clear and focused as well as creative. Without sleep, it just doesn’t work! Also, I loved how the author talks about nervous system resets. If you don’t know what that is, definitely read the book. I could really understand how that could help soothe before naps and bedtimes. I am grateful to have this knowledge. I would recommend keeping this as a reference as your child grows as you’ll probably refer back to it time and again as your routine changes. Super helpful book!” – Well Rested Mom
