Jayne Havens returns to the show- this time to talk about toddler sleep. Jayne is a certified sleep consultant through the institute of pediatric sleep and parenting. She works with families to help get their babies and kids sleeping better through her business Snoozefest by Jayne Havens! Jayne is also the founder of Pediatric Sleep Management where she trains other people to start their own businesses as sleep consultants.
In this episode Jayne and I discuss healthy sleep habits for toddlers, she talks about the amount the average toddler actually needs (which is much less than I realized). We also talk about what to do when the nap goes away, what to do when young kids crawl out of crib, agreements before bedtime and more. Anyone ever heard of a bedtime pass? This is a fun strategy Jayne implements with the bigger kids and I kind of love it!
