Will Daycare Wreck Your Child's Sleep?

No matter where you’re at with your child’s sleep, nothing messes with naptimes quite like starting at a new daycare.

I’ve had quite a few clients who started The Sleep Sense Program only to

You can find out what those questions are — and get my best advice for choosing a daycare provider — in this week’s video blog:

And if YOU have some advice (or daycare horror stories) you’d like to share, please join the conversation in the ‘Comments’ section below!
