What people are saying:
"Taylor’s Toddler Sleep Foundations course is amazing! There is so much helpful information packed in and delivered a clear and concise manner. She covers everything in your toddler’s life because, as she explains, everything affects sleep. This isn’t a quick fix for toddler sleep like other programs advertise but with Taylor’s insight and knowledge, parents have the tools to have a better, healthier, more well-rounded relationship with their children. I would definitely recommend this course!"- Kayla
"This course was SO unbelievably helpful for me and my family. Being responsive/gentle in parenting - I had such a huge difficulty finding any significant resources in regards to sleep. I am so happy I had the opportunity to take this course - and that my husband was able to watch it too. Understanding that transitions can and will happen overtime and that it is okay to have some crying when these transitions was so helpful for me to learn. That is something I struggle with! I am looking forward to continuing developing the bond that my daughter and I have with the added wealth of information from this course." -Lani
"Taylor's course is very comprehensive and provides parents strategies to improve their relationship with their toddler and builds off it to support their toddler's sleep. This is not a "sleep training" course in the traditional sense; this course helps parents implement gentle, developmentally appropriate sleep strategies. This course is perfect for parents who prefer gentle, responsive parenting methods, who need help in supporting their toddler's sleep, as well as for parents who are looking for help to establish a more peaceful and securely attached relationship with their toddler overall." -Jacqueline
"As parents of a 23 month old son, we had been looking for a resource like this for quite some time. We are a co-sleeping, breastfeeding family. Our son has always gone to sleep nursing during bedtime, and through different methods for nap time. We decided to follow our instincts when it came to parenting our son, so we support him through the night as we do not believe sleep training is right for our family. Although we are confident in how we are doing things, it does present challenges. We have been thinking about when we want to have our second child, but our son's dependency on mom with his sleep is the top consideration as we wonder how to implement changes in a gentle and respectful way that will prepare us for the arrival of a sibling. We searched for help with this transition, and Taylor's course has been the most holistic resource we have found to implement a plan for preparing our son for a younger sibling. Taylor's e-course explains that changes will take time, and gives you practical tools to navigate the journey. The course provides a broad foundation on toddler sleep in relation to attachment parenting. It proceeds in later chapters to provide practical advice and examples on how to implement a plan that will fit your family and meets your child where they are. We are very glad we found this course, and would highly recommend Taylor as a resource."- Vanessa
