    Common Toddler Nap Problems and How to Solve Them

    Some kids sleep too little during the day, some too much and some just sleep at the wrong time. But, by far and away, the most distressing of these is napping too little. Your little cave-kid may struggle so much with naps that his room starts to feel to you like an Ultimate Fighting ring. The main reasons your tot may try to wriggle out of his nap are:  He’s overtired. He’s distracted and overstimulated (by noise, light, the TV,...

    When Do Toddlers Stop Napping?

    When Do Toddlers Stop Napping?

    Like big, clumsy birds that plop back to earth a few times as they run, trying to get airborne, some toddlers take many weeks—bouncing along—before they’re definitely able to take flight and say au revoir to their last nap. They struggle to stay awake during play and fall fast asleep the instant they’re put in the car.

    What Causes Nighttime Seizures in Toddlers?

    A seizure (also called a convulsion) occurs when the brain short-circuits. This can cause uncontrolled body jerks, an inability to communicate and urination.

In sleep talking, kids calmly sit up in bed—eyes open, but glassy—and start speaking in short, incoherent phrases. Your child may stop if you call her, turn to you and mumble some gibberish (some older kids actually say clear phrases like “No, no, go away!”), but won’t look you in the eyes. In fact, she’ll seem to be looking right through you! While many parents...

    How to Help Your Toddler Cope With Growing Pains

    Miguel woke up every night just an hour after going to sleep, crying that his leg hurt. Sometimes he said his thigh ached, and other times he complained about his shin. And sometimes it was the right leg, while other times it was the left. He’d go back to sleep only after his mom gave him a little ibuprofen and massaged his leg for 10 minutes. Growing pains aren’t just a myth. They affect up to 25% of children, generally...

    ‘Twinkle Interruptus’: A Clever Trick for Getting Your Toddler to Sleep

    Bedtime was frustration time for Aaron because 2-year-old Emma would make him sing “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” over and over for an hour, until she fell asleep. “She insisted that I sing ‘Twinkle’ to her about 10 gazillion times…again and again!” he said. “Sometimes she seems to be asleep and I’ll try to ease myself off her bed, but if I make any tiny sound, she’ll immediately grumble out a half-asleep demand, ‘Twinkle!!!’ and I know I’ll be stuck there...
