Toddlers and Older Children (2 – 9 years)

Little sleep stars in the making

Are you spending most of your evenings struggling to get your little one to sleep?

We love working with toddlers and small children and we’re here to help! 

You’ve tried and tried to get your little one down for the night, yet they’re up and down more frequently than a yo-yo!

Is it getting to the point where you are starting to worry about your little ones’ health and wellbeing, knowing that a well-rested child is curious, energetic, playful, happy and eager to learn?

No matter what age, lack of sleep can severely affect the quality of life, health, mood and cognition, not just for your little one, but for your entire family too!

The Petite Dreamers Toddler and Children sleep programme is tailor-made by our experienced coaches so that your little one (and the rest of the family) can sleep well and deeply.  We will guide you through the various practised processes so that your loved one can happily fall asleep and say asleep ALL NIGHT LONG!

With our tried and tested pillars of respect, education, nurture and transformation, your toddler will be sleeping soundly sooner than you ever dreamed possible

FAQ’s

TODDLER & SCHOOL AGED CHILDREN (2 – 9 years old)

Answers to your most frequently asked questions about toddler & school aged children sleep coaching and how we can help you set up a solid sleep foundation for a thriving little sleep star!

My toddler/school-age child is still not sleeping through the night. Can you help?

Absolutely! We work with children as old as 9 years old to achieve good sleep!

Louise, our founder’s, own son didn’t sleep well at night until she worked on his sleep at 3 ½ years old. And now, at 11, he sleeps like a rock and needs her to wake him up most mornings!

It will never be too late to help your child develop good sleep skills which will improve not only their quality of sleep but their happiness, ability to learn and behaviour, enabling them to thrive in the day too!

What is the best bedtime for my toddler?

It is recommended that children to the age of 7 get 10-12 hours of night sleep. As such, we usually suggest a bedtime of no later than 8pm, working towards a wake-up time that falls anywhere between 6:30am and 7:30am. 

Remember that setting a good sleep foundation with consistent habits from a young age, will help your child maintain good sleep when they start primary school, which traditionally starts significantly earlier than childcare/kindy.

What if my child is at daycare or with a nanny?

The beauty of one-to-one coaching is that we are able to tailor your family’s sleep plan to your specific requirements. In today’s busy world, when more often than not both parents are working, it is very common for families to have a nanny or to have their toddlers/children in daycare. We will educate and help you navigate guidelines for all your little ones’ caregivers so that a consistent approach to good sleep can be maintained.

How long until I see results for this age?

Once a child has been moved to their big boy/girl bed, it will usually take 2-3 weeks to start seeing consolidated night sleep. Challenging behaviour at bedtime tends to be also present during the day. Our approach is to share with you our 8 tried and tested behaviour tools that you can practice during the day, which will be the foundation of good bedtime and nighttime behaviour.

My toddler has already dropped their nap. Is this OK?

By the time a toddler turns 3 years old, most are ready to drop their daytime nap (this is always a sad time for parents!).

When working with families, if their little one has already dropped their nap we will generally not ask them to reinstate it, unless it is very clear that it is needed.

That said, the transition to a full day of being awake is a big jump in the total continuous hours of awake time (for example 6-12 hours). This is why it is important to keep an eye on your little one’s bedtime and make it earlier if you are finding there are bedtime struggles caused by over-tiredness.

Should we start sleep training now, or wait until we get back from holiday?

In order to give your little one the best possible chance of sleep success while following our sleep training program, it is best that you are at home for the entire length of the sleep training program.
