Big kids need sleep, too.
The typical sleep challenges of a toddler are different from those of an infant. They’re testing boundaries and requesting more freedom. With added complications like big kid beds, dropped naps, and common fears (such as being afraid of the dark), parents of big kids are often exasperated and not optimistic.
It’s never too late to restore your child’s sleep routine.
Whether you have a toddler, preschooler, or elementary-aged child, you can break old habits and teach them new independent sleep habits that will help them for life.
The Toddler Sleep Packages
The Toddler Packages equip you to teach your child healthy sleep habits. Our certified sleep consultants will walk you through an easy-to-follow plan that’s age-appropriate, evidence-based, and customized to fit your family.

Schedule Your Consultation
Choose Your Package
Once you choose the package that best fits your family’s needs, you’ll receive a detailed questionnaire via email. Complete and return this to us at least 2 days prior to your consultation to give your consultant time to create your child’s custom sleep plan.
Prepare Your Family
Look at your calendar to find a time when you have at least 2 weeks of “normal” activity (no vacations, weddings, doctor’s appointments, or big schedule changes). The best time to begin this sleep overhaul is when your child will be in his or her typical environment for two consistent weeks. We see the greatest successes for families when everyone is on the same page, including your spouse, nanny, or any other caregiver(s). We encourage you to discuss your sleep challenges, expectations, and goals before making sleep changes.
Secure Your Package
Using the link sent to you via email, review your quote, sign your contract, and pay the invoice. Completing these steps immediately will allow you to confirm your consultation time with your consultant.
Total sleep transformations aren’t made in one night, so begin when you are fully committed! We’ll educate you on the nuances of your child’s best sleep practices but know that success will depend on your consistency in following your consultant’s recommendations. With consistency, we’ll teach your kiddo to sleep independently. Get excited– you’re on the path to restorative sleep!
Our toddler plan is generally three weeks in length. We often say that this is a marathon- not a sprint! We include older children heavily in the plan through the use of child-friendly charts and visuals. This plan generally takes longer because toddlers are smart and persistent. No matter where your toddlers’ sleep is at right now, we’ll get you to where you want to be.
Meet with your Consultant
Discuss Your Custom Sleep Plan
During your consultation, we’ll go over your child’s sleep plan in detail, including bedtime, night-wakings, and naps. Your certified sleep consultant will discuss the importance of healthy sleep habits and find a routine that will work best for your family. Most importantly, you’ll be provided with safe sleep recommendations. Depending on the package you choose, we’ll outline next steps for follow-up support.
This is a time where we can address any questions or concerns you may have about the process. Your consultant wants you to feel comfortable asking questions so that you can go into the initial implementation with total confidence. Then, we’ll schedule the first follow-up call, which typically takes place the morning after you begin implementing your sleep plan.
After Your Consultation
Receive Your Sleep Plan
Your consultant will send you the finalized sleep plan, which includes details of the follow-up support provided with the package you chose. At this time, your family can make any recommended changes to your child’s bedroom based on our discussion during the consultation to maximize your child’s success.
Track Your Child’s Sleep
You’ll receive editing access to your child’s sleep log, which will be reviewed by your consultant daily. As you implement the sleep plan, we’ll track your child’s progress and make recommendations for changes based on how things are progressing.
Celebrate your Rest
Use Your Resources
After you complete your package, you’ll receive resources from your consultant. Keep the close out resources your consultant provided for reference. When you encounter sleep changes or transitions in the future, you will know just what to do.
Rest and Recharge
Healthy sleep opens the door to calmer, brighter days. Once your child has independent sleep skills, bedtime won’t be a burden. With more predictable sleep, you’ll have more time to take care of yourself and your relationships. We’re cheering you on as you schedule date nights, enjoy a solo outing, and discover what it feels like to be #restedasamother or #restedasafather!
Share your Experience
We want to hear how you’re doing! You can submit your family’s testimonial to share your success story with us. Tell other families about your child’s sleep transformation or even celebrate your child’s great sleep on social media! When you refer a family to Sleep Wise, you earn the benefit of AMAZING rewards through our fantastic affiliate program! The gift of sleep will keep on giving!
