    Many of the mums I  meet confess to me that they co-sleep when they find out I’m a more holistic gentle sleep coach, its something they often won't admit to anyone outside of their circle because of the bad press that co-sleeping often gets.

    Sleep difficulties with toddlers is more common than many mums realise. The toddler years are a tricky phase for your little one, no longer a baby but not quite a big boy or girl just yet. The toddler age can be a confusing time for your little one, they may yearn for freedom and independence but still need to security of knowing mum or dad are nearby should they need them.

    I often find toddlers find it hard to fall asleep sometimes. With brain development and their increasing understanding of the world around them toddlers and preschoolers often find switching off and relaxing enough to fall asleep a challenge but harnessing the power of their imagination

It could be that your baby used to sleep through the night and now wakes up again to feed, or your baby waking more frequently overnight than before.
