Baby Sleep - Toddler Sleep Help
For many parents, getting your baby or toddler to sleep through the night is the first thing you think of when you wake up in the morning, the last thing you think of when you go to bed at night, and certainly the most rational thought you have as you wake up several times throughout the night to attend to your baby’s sleep time struggles. Yet even the best of intentions fail when you find yourself faced with tears, frustration, and just plain exhaustion (and that doesn’t even include your little one).
Regardless of whether you are a first-time parent or a veteran parent who simply forgot how difficult bedtime can be, getting babies to sleep (and getting them to stay there) continues to be one of the biggest challenges we all face in creating happy, healthy sleeping routines. This is true even for parents who are juggling sleeping habits for several children all at once, as well as those whose older children were blessed with the gift of sleep and are suddenly back in the shoes of a struggling newbie.
