Parenting Guide to Toddler Sleeping | [Calvin A. Colarusso]

Toddlers are pretty amazing and so delightful (some of the time). A developmental understanding of why toddlers have difficulty getting to sleep and sleeping through the night will definitely help you and make your toddler even more adorable (maybe tolerable is a better word.) Parenting Guide to Toddler Sleeping will make your life easier. With wit and understanding, based on his years of treating children, child psychiatrist Calvin Colarusso M.D., clearly describes the developmental issues that explain why toddlers are not the best sleepers in the world.

Publisher's Summary

If you're the parent of a two-year-old, then you're not getting enough sleep. Who ever does when living with a toddler that age?

Toddlers are pretty amazing and so delightful (some of the time). A developmental understanding of why toddlers have difficulty getting to sleep and sleeping through the night will definitely help you and make your toddler even more adorable (maybe tolerable is a better word.)

Parenting Guide to Toddler Sleeping will make your life easier. With wit and understanding, based on his 50 years of treating children and their parents, child psychiatrist Calvin Colarusso M.D., clearly describes the developmental issues that explain why toddlers are not the best sleepers in the world. And he gives practical suggestions on how to manage bedtime intruders and get a good nights sleep.

This book will help you level the playing field, so you will have at least an equal chance of managing your toddler's endless energy and negativism.

The book contains information on:

  • Problems with co-sleeping, at any age
  • The importance of appropriate weaning and toilet training.
  • The reasons for the "Terrible Twos"
  • The need for a bedtime ritual to facilitate the transition from active play to quiet sleep
  • The reasons why toddlers have difficulty falling asleep and sleeping through the night

    "So-so: A taste of some issues"
    What did you like best about Parenting Guide to Toddler Sleeping? What did you like least?

    I liked that the book just kind of confirmed how common night waking and bed time issues are for toddlers. It listed some issues.. but they were basic and didnt really tell you how to resolve them. Also, I'm not sure I agree with the recommendation that breastfeeding past 1 and co-sleeping are an issue. I didnt co-sleep but I think the issues couldve been just as successfully addressed without that bit. It was ok


    How could the performance have been better?

    It was a little robotic
