The No-Cry Sleep Solution for Toddlers and Preschoolers

Gentle Ways to Stop Bedtime Battles and Improve Your Child’s Sleep

Sleep for Toddlers



Your toddler isn’t sleeping through the night. Your preschooler battles bedtime. And you haven’t had a good night’s sleep in how many years? Get the rest you all desperately need with advice found in The No-Cry Sleep Solution for Toddlers and Preschoolers. 

Elizabeth Pantley’s beloved parenting classic The No-Cry Sleep Solution has helped hundreds of thousands of parents gently coax their babies to sleep. Now she gives you tools to help your one-to-six year old child get in bed, stay in bed, and sleep all night – by providing no-cry solutions for:

  • Bedtime battles, dawdling, and evening melt-downs
  • Night waking and early rising
  • Moving out of the crib and into a big-kid bed
  • Graduating from the family bed to independent sleep
  • Ending the all-night breastfeeding routine
  • Stopping nighttime visits to your bed
  • Handling naptime problems
  • Solving nightmares, separation anxiety and fears

My previous sleep book, and the predecessor to this one, is The No-Cry Sleep Solution: Gentle Ways to Help Your Baby Sleep Through the Night. It provides answers to better sleep for parents of children from the day of birth through toddlerhood. My youngest son, Coleton, was a very frequent night-waking, all-night breastfeeding-baby. My experience learning how to help him sleep all night was the incentive for me to write my first no-cry sleep book. Since then, I have corresponded with thousands of parents, and I have expanded my research up through the preschool years to bring you this edition of The No-Cry Sleep Solution.

Because the magic of children is that they are all very different from one another, and that they are unique in their transitions from one stage of growth to the next, this edition of The No-Cry Sleep Solution crosses paths with the first for that in-between stage from baby to toddler. It then moves forward through the preschool years, and for many children, into the primary grades as well.

I hope now to guide you along a gentle, peaceful journey to good sleep for everyone in your family.
