Diana Yacobi’s daughter, Lily, was telling her about how their toddler was waking up in the middle of the night, as most toddlers do. He had just transitioned from a crib to a junior-sized bed. He would appear in his parents’ room and request to sleep in their bed. A squirming child and parents who wake up often in the middle of deep sleep was not a good arrangement. Nobody got a good night’s rest.
Sleepy Bear, by example, teaches kids why it’s a good idea to go back to sleep in their own bed.
