Thank you for your question. This is a common concern for many parents around their toddler not sleeping. We have found that there could be several factors that need consideration re toddler sleep. E.g. Changes to household routines; the length of this pattern of behaviour; other family factors; normal developmental changes around nightmares; bedroom lighting and fear of the dark; health of the child; consistency of family routine. Establishing a good bedtime routine that quietens and reassures your child is a good place to start. Looking at what is happening around the waking and resettling of your child should give you an idea of where to pitch your efforts. For a more detailed response we would need more specific information which you can give us in a reply to this forum post.
