2 Year-Old Sleep Regression

I’ve spoken at length in the past about parents blaming their child’s sleep issues on “regressions.” Through my extensive experience, I have learned that there are only two “real” regressions. One at four months, and another one around 10-12 months. Outside of those two regressions, long term issues with a child’s sleep are almost always [...]

10-12 Month Sleep Regression (and Why it’s Not Time to Transition to 1 Nap)

Here at Baby Sleep Trainer we tend to shy away from using the term “regression.” That’s because I find families will look for any reason to explain why their child isn’t sleeping through the night. (For example, I often hear teething, ongoing and repeated sleep regressions, nightmares, etc.) Yet, the most obvious reason is that [...]

Nightmares, Night Terrors, Afraid of the Dark – Oh My! What’s a Parent to Do?

Baby’s Sleep Changes
