About the Guide to Toddlers Course

As an infant develops into a toddler, they become increasingly aware of the world around them. While this can be an exciting time for a toddler, it can also be challenging and frustrating for both toddler and carer, as they begin to exert their independence and insist on doing things on their own.

This course also includes a comprehensive guide to sleep and settling, including common causes of frequent waking and how to manage typical sleep struggles.
