I’m Jem and I am a toddler sleep consultant and author of The Better Sleep Blueprint: A realistic guide to baby sleep for parents who don’t want to sleep train.

I am passionate about supporting families who are still struggling with sleep after 12 months of age. 

We don’t have to put up with terrible sleep just because we are parents. Helping you to understand sleep, and find your unique way to make things better is my goal.

What I believe is the biggest game changer for you is to truly understand how sleep works so that adapting to your child’s ever-changing needs feels instinctive, and you feel confident and empowered in your parenting. 

So if you’re a parent who wants to understand the why not just the how, you’re in the right place.

When do toddlers sleep through the night?

Sleeping through the night is a developmental milestone, just like crawling, walking and talking.

We trust our child to reach other milestones in their own time, but of course sleeping through the night is one that has a significant impact on our own lives, mental health and general well-being. 

By toddlerhood, most parents expect that by this age their child would be well past sleep problems, but unfortunately the research shows that around 85% of children will still wake in the night until 18 months. 

Beyond that, there are still ‘sleep regressions’ at 18 and 24 months so it’s no wonder sleep is still challenging.

Can I help my toddler to sleep through the night?

Unfortunately nobody can make someone else go to sleep, or stay asleep unless they are ready. If I could figure that out then I’d be a billionaire!

What we CAN do as parents is nurture the right environment, provide safety and security and use sleep science to make sure we are doing everything we can to give our children the best chance of sleeping through the night.

If you want to know how to do that, my guide with 7 great tips is going to help you do just that. Download it now and get started!

How many hours is sleeping through the night?

We’re often told that children will sleep 7 pm – 7 am. Unfortunately the reality is very different.

When the first research studies came out, sleeping through the night was actually only defined as sleeping 12-5am, far away from the current thoughts of them needing to sleep for  12 hours! 

The challenge with this mismatch in expectations versus reality is that parents then feel they must be doing something wrong.

This guide will help you understand what is typical for children between 12 months and 3 years. You’ll feel more confident in figuring out bedtime, nap times and wake up times to suit YOUR toddler’s needs.

Is sleeping through just about getting the timing right?

No definitely not, there are may factors that will support your child to have the best sleep they can.

It’s about emotional needs, physical needs and routines all coming together to optimise the changes of your toddler sleeping through the night. 

It really does take a holistic approach, its not JUST about having a predictable bedtime routine and getting the wake windows right.

I just 'get' toddlers, and these parents agree

Meenie & Indy

Jemma was non judgemental and gave us some straightforward, practical and manageable suggestions about adjusting day time sleep patterns. We couldn’t believe what a big difference to his night time routine it made! Would highly recommend!

Renata & Ben

Jemma knew exactly what the problems were only on our first chat! Impressed! It was a brilliant experience working with her, we went from bedtime battles to our son sleeping through the night. We feel well prepared for the future and confident that we can adapt our routine as he gets older.

Victoria & Theo

With Jemma's expert help and advice, we have a toddler who now sleeps 1.5-2 hours at lunch time and 7am-7pm. Before he would wake after 45 minutes and would be difficult to settle. Our days would also start at 4.30/5am. Jemma's kind and friendly non-judgemental attitude made her a pleasure to work with.
