Toddlers can be tricky little things, can’t they? Independent, feisty, strong willed… we wouldn’t have them any other way, right? But the only problem is that while they are all of these things, which are great, they don’t always turn off those parts of their nature at bed time. Sigh. Most parents of toddlers will tell you that there have been issues with sleep at some point, simply because their toddler is a toddler. So what can you do about this? While it’s totally normal for your toddler to want to fight back against certain aspects of life, it can be frustrating when this is sleep! Here are the top five posts I’ve written on toddler sleep- hopefully your questions can be answered today, and if not please do leave me a comment with a question and I’ll do my best to help.
