If you have more than one child, you’re probably aware that each child can be SO different. I often work with families who have one child who is a fantastic sleeper and another who struggles. It shows you that each child is a unique person, born with their individual temperament.
Every Monday, I will be posting a new video, answering YOUR sleep questions. This week’s question is from Cat, who has two toddlers. Her older toddler is a great sleeper, getting 11 hours every night. Her younger one isn’t keen on sleep in the evening.
Toddler sleep can be a challenge, especially when they transition naps. Moving from two naps to one nap can bring all new sleep challenges, and it’s very easy to become overtired.
Here are a few suggestions to help Cat. They may help your little one sleep better too!

She had 3 little ones in 3 years (along with an international move at 7 months pregnant with #3, which just means she’s a little crazy and adventurous). Her little “lambs” keep her busy, with her oldest just turned 6, middle one almost 5 and the youngest is almost 3.
