A mother to a 5 year old, and host of the Holistic Baby and Toddler Sleep Podcast, in this episode we discuss all things toddler sleep and how to help your little one get the rest they need.

Sleep is crucial for your toddler’s growth, development, and overall health. In this episode, we’ll explore why sleep matters and share practical tips for creating a sleep-friendly environment, managing nap time resistance, and more.

We discuss:
