Talkin' Toddler Sleep Course

Your toddler isn't an asshole

Although it may not feel that way–it’s true!

Testing your patience is a toddler’s job–or at least it feels that way. Fighting you at bedtime, having apparent hearing problems when you make requests, finding something that must be done - right now (and its not getting ready for bed) –the list just keeps going. So yes, it feels like calling them an asshole is the way to go! 🤣 But the reality is that these tiny humans are just barely scratching the surface of understanding their very big emotions and the new found freedoms their physical skills have brought them. So what feels like purposeful annoyance (and hell if it isn’t frustrating) is really them experimenting and exploring the world around them

Keep reading if --all you really want is...

Short and easy bedtime and naptime routines that don't last hours, and allow you both to peacefully fall asleep easily and without resentment or stress.

More sleep and reduced night time wakes, you thought sleep deprivation was behind you or maybe the wakes never stopped in the first place. You need sleep and so does your toddler.

For your toddler to sleep independently. Whether you want to transition away from nursing, rocking or laying with your toddler to sleep - this course got you covered with independent sleep transitions process and strategies without cry it out of any kind.

To transition from co-sleeping to their own bed without stress you loved the cuddles but you feel its time for you or them (or both!) to get your own sleep spaces. You want this transition to be smooth so that they love sleeping in their own bed or room.

Talkin' Toddler Sleep Course helped Natasha understand her toddler's behaviours and possible reasons why this was happening and how to help improve her sleeping habits
Valerie’s toddler sleep course has taught us so much.

There were so many things that we did not realize could be causing our little one to fight sleep. Her course helped us understand our toddler’s behaviours and possible reasons why this was happening and how to help improve her sleeping habits. I am so grateful for this course.

🔊Attention: The Sleep Game Has Changed!

Whatever you do to get your little one to sleep AND brings you joy

When it comes to toddler sleep– the strategies and guidelines from baby sleep seem to have gone out the window! Baby sleep was reactionary–because your baby needed you in order for their needs to be met. BUT now that your little one is officially in the Toddler stage–that’s all changed with their budding independence! Your little one can tell you exactly why it's actually not time for sleep, implement the best delay tactics, and turn your sleep upside down.

I need water!

More Kisses!

I'm hungry!

It’s time to implement loving limits and boundaries because they create sanity for humans and your toddler needs them to thrive. We teach you how to set loving limits and boundaries so that you can be the parent you want to be while ensuring your toddler turns out to be the best human possible.

Toddler playing instead of sleeping
Thank you!

Before this course, I didn't understand my toddler sleep at all, or what was even considered "normal" for a toddler. I was surprised after taking the course to find that yes we had gained more confidence in our sleep decisions, but we felt more supported in our parenting decisions as well!

I can happily report we now have an independent little sleeper too!

The Course

Sound like the solution you’ve been searching the ends of the internet for?

Real People. Real Success. Real Sleep.

Your time is precious

As parents ourselves– we understand that everyday is a unique adventure and there is hardly ever warning when things are not going to go according to plan. It’s one of the reasons we have committed to zero time limits on our course access. We know that you are trying to take in the information you need as quickly as possible in teeny-tiny slices of time throughout your day. And pressure to take in all the information we’re providing would just make this–well–icky!

We also know that many of you are opting to grow your families as time goes on–we want you to utilize the knowledge you gain from The Ultimate Toddler Course to help every one of your little ones as they develop and grow. Especially since the odds of having identical sleep habits amongst your kiddos isn’t gonna be a thing–every toddler is different.

If we’re not your flat white (that’s coffee FYI)
-- that’s okay!

Honest–there are no hard feelings if our approach to sleep doesn’t align with your personal sleep philosophy. Every family should get a choice in deciding what’s best for them. Giving people options beyond the status quo variety is kind of our thing. We want you to know that your decision on how to navigate toddler sleep is 100% the right decision for your unique family.

On the fence about us?

Being a data driven person myself–I want you to have all the details to help you make the best decision for you. So we looked at all the families we’ve helped over the years and found that toddler Sleep Essentials will be perfect for you if….

Your parenting style would be considered responsive, respectful, natural or gentle and you don't want to fall into the routines of your parents because well...that sucked!

You want to parent using your intuition but need some extra encouragement because parenting is eff-ing hard!

You’re willing to accept what is biologically normal for your toddler while doing what you can to maximize your toddler’s sleep.

Doing what’s best for your baby is THE priority and you want to confirm that what you've done so far is on the right track–and if not how to adjust to make that happen.

For the record I think you’re doing great because you’re here! By researching and taking the time to make sure this is the right place for you means you’re already on the right track. ​👏

Sound like the perfect fit for your family?!

Not all Courses are created equal

Depending on the type of support you're looking for–Baby Sleep Essentials Course might not be the right fit for you. Let’s take a moment to make sure we’re on the same page, here are things you won’t find in the course:

If you're still with me--it's looking good that we're the right fit!

There’s just one more thing I want to add. If you’ve already taken numerous sleep courses from varying sleep experts AND nothing is helping your little one sleep–it’s time for one-on-one support from an expert. This individualized support allows the expert to review your specific family needs, your little one’s medical history and can help you decipher all the clues to create a curated solution for your family.

Despite what you may have heard, YOUR well-being is actually essential

It’s true! When you find solutions to your family's struggles that align with your personal values and philosophies, your whole family will feel it. So yes! Your mental and physical health are important when it comes to your toddler’s sleep.

When I became a parent myself and started researching toddler sleep more and more I realized a terrible truth–the toddler sleep world is unregulated and anyone can claim to be an expert and spread blame and misinformation around. 😱 So those people telling you to walk away from your toddler when they are upset, to stop cuddling and loving on them because you’ll “spoil” them–they are misinforming you!

Actual child development science supports connection + compassion!

As a self-proclaimed psychology nerd. I read those giant peer-reviewed articles on toddler sleep, and developmental psychology for pleasure. THAT is my passion and it’s what I bring with me to my Talkin’ Sleep families. Years of scientific research and practical experience working one-on-one with families from all walks of life guide our content. That means you can feel confident that what you learn from Talkin’ Sleep is in the best interest of you, your toddler AND your whole family.

Absolutely not! I am personally against cry-it-out and sleep training of any kind. It is not in line with current scientific evidence and the thought of leaving children to cry breaks my heart.

You will never be asked to leave your toddler to cry for any length of time for any reason. You will also never be asked to ignore your intuition. This is not a course to teach you how to train your toddler to sleep. (It is a biological function after all!)

In module 4 of the Toddler Sleep Essentials, we cover independent sleep transitions that include sleeping in their own space as well as going to sleep on their own. 

In module 3 of the Toddler Sleep Essentials, we cover getting more sleep — that includes identifying what’s  waking them and how to respond in a way that minimizes wakes.

Yes! In modules 1, 2 and 3 of the Toddler Sleep Essentials Course, we cover what you need to know to transform your bedtime routines from dreadful to dreamy! 

In modules 2 and 3 of the Toddler Sleep Essentials, we cover what you need to know to get to the root cause of nap resistance so you can make it a thing of the past.

The course is intentionally designed for the toddler ages 1-5 years. Good news though,  The Talkin’ Sleep Baby Sleep Essentials Course is perfect for babies ages 0-12 months! CHECK IT OUT

No, this course does not–but we offer that as a standalone webinar! GET NIGHT WEANING WEBINAR

Bottom line: Yes!

The Ultimate Toddler Sleep Course is designed to help you guide your toddler to their best possible sleep by focusing on identifying and resolving the root cause of your sleep woes, setting realistic expectations, and establishing boundaries and loving limits. Such as their environment, expanding knowledge of their own unique personality and needs, having realistic expectations, balancing household schedules, and identifying the reasons for sleep disruptions. 

That being said–the allied healthcare provider in me has to add–if there is a known medical issue that is causing a sleep disruption, treating the condition should be your first step in that process.
