free ultimate naps guide for babies and toddlers | The Peaceful Sleeper

Take the guesswork out of naptime, no matter baby’s age.

Hey, I’m Chrissy! I’m a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, practicing for over 13 years and a certified pediatric sleep consultant.

One topic that I always get tons of questions about, and is a main concern for parents, is NAPS! Daytime naps are hard to achieve in the first place, not to mention they can be easily disturbed by changes to routine, illness, teething…you name it! It takes time and effort to keep our little ones on a solid and consistent napping routine.

That’s why I have created this guide! You don’t have to struggle through this alone. In this guide you’ll learn:

  • Why Naps Are Important
  • Optimizing Naps (environment, number of hours, and timing)
  • Lengthening Naps
  • Dropping Naps
  • Nap Sleep Regressions
  • Getting Solid Newborn Naps

Here’s what other Mama’s have to say:

In a world of unknowns this guide gave me some direction to help troubleshoot my baby’s crappy naps. He now sleeps at least an hour and a half at every nap!

This guide is amazing!! My 4 month old went from having 30-45 naps, to being able to soothe herself back to sleep and extend her naps to 1.5-2.5 hours. I used to Always go in there when she ‘woke’ up after 45 minutes thinking it was time for her to wake up. This guide taught me to just let her hang out when this happens! Thank you Chrissy!

This helped us a bunch. My baby has ALWAYS had trouble napping. It’s been so inconsistent from 4 months on. This guide gave me the confidence to set daily regular nap times instead of going with her wake windows. It works so much better for our baby!


This helped me trust my gut about how much sleep my baby needed, she wasn’t napping long and I knew she needed more sleep but was struggling to string together anything longer than 30 mins. Did a few suggested adjustments and can sometimes get a full 2.5hr nap some days!


Why The Peaceful Sleeper?

Giving your little one the gift of sleep is one of the most beneficial things you can ever do for them. Good sleep helps your baby develop physically, emotionally, intellectually and socially.  Having a well-rested, happy baby drastically transforms the experience of motherhood. Postpartum depression, anxiety, stress and overwhelm are significantly diminished allowing you to enjoy motherhood and your baby in a whole new way. Happier babies, happier mamas, happier marriages. Good sleep changes EVERYTHING.

About Chrissy

Hi! I’m so glad you’re here! I’m a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, practicing for over 13 years. I dedicated my graduate education to researching attachment, and my post-graduate education to understanding the science of sleep as well as uncovering what it takes for women to thrive (and not just survive) in motherhood and marriage. I fundamentally believe that we should feel empowered and fulfilled in motherhood, and I know that better information and better tools are a critical piece of that puzzle.

I have 4 beautiful daughters and I love being their mom, but I intimately remember my own experiences with postpartum anxiety and depression. When I had my first, I was sleep deprived and felt SO overwhelmed. As I tried to figure out how to be a good mom, I felt lost in the contradictory and often “shame-y” information out there, especially about sleep. I knew there had to be a better way to connect with and teach parents without making them feel like sh*t. So I set out to do ALL of the research and I created a method to optimize baby sleep that is tuned in, empowering and WORKS. There absolutely should be joy in motherhood, and I have learned that every baby CAN get better sleep!

Frequently Asked Questions

Does The Peaceful Sleeper method use CIO?

The Peaceful Sleeper methodology focuses on a supportive, tuned-in approach families can use to help their baby learn independent sleep skills. We focus on helping babies learn self-regulation and sleep independently by optimizing their schedule and scaling back our level of intervention in sleep initiation. How quickly a baby learns will depend on multiple factors like their learning style and how rapidly we scale back our intervention. While we may offer space for baby to attempt self-regulation, any timers that we suggest are fluid and we will always tune in to your baby to make sure they are in a state of productive learning. We will never encourage you to leave baby to cry for the sake of crying. If your baby is struggling to self-regulate, we will intervene to help them calm down, and then we can offer further opportunities to see if they reset to a place of productive learning.

If you are not comfortable with giving your baby any amount of time or space to attempt self-regulation, that’s totally fine! One of our approaches is a “no cry” approach. It is our most gradual approach, meaning you should expect the process to take longer, however it involves you physically being with your baby through the entire learning process. You learn all about this approach in the 4-24 month course!
