Young Toddler Sleep Guide

In this comprehensive guide, I aim to teach you everything you need to know about supporting sleep for 19 month olds to 3 year olds.

I am hoping that you are here because you would like to learn a little more about how sleep works in the toddler years and to find out more about what you can do to support your toddler’s sleep. You can feel assured that I won’t be suggesting any strategies that involve leaving your toddler to cry or not responding to their needs because I believe that there are more effective, less distressing ways for both you and your toddler. I will be providing you with some practical tips and a range of ideas which can influence sleep habits and rhythms.
