Toddlers have different sleep issues to babies. For a start, instead of mewling in a cot, they’re able to get out of bed and stalk around the house, perhaps appearing at your bedside making unreasonable demands at regular intervals. So tackling toddlers’ sleep issues requires a different approach
The definition of a sleep problem depends on your expectations, ability to cope with interrupted sleep and family dynamics.
Some parents are happy to spend 12 hours lolling with their children in a giant bed. Others play musical beds throughout the night. And some parents require 12 hours of children being neither seen nor heard. So whether you consider your toddler has a sleep problem will depend where you are on this spectrum.
Likewise, as far as going to sleep is concerned, some parents are happy to sit on the sofa with their little ones until they drop off, while others want the children in bed at 7pm so they can watch the news/soaps or swing from the chandeliers without being pestered.
So the only person who can answer the question ‘does my toddler have a sleep problem?’ is you.
If you think your child isnt sleeping as they should there is some really helpful advice on the link below
