With these toddler sleep products, the payoff of better sleep is priceless!
Hatch Rest+ Sound Machine and Night Light ($90)
We absolutely love this for babies, toddlers and beyond! It connects with your phone so you can select from a library of snooze-inducing songs like lullabies and white noise. You can also select a night light from a rainbow of colors. One of the best features for toddlers is their “time-to-rise” program where you can automatically cue your child for naps, bedtime, and wake-up times with different colors or sounds. Buy it here!.
The Original White Noise Machine by Yogasleep ($45)
This is a simple and straight-forward sound machine that does the job perfectly. Toddlers, especially, need the white noise to soothe them to sleep and distract them from outside noises that could lure them out of bed. It has two speed and volume options so you can customize it to your child’s needs. Buy it here!
Love to Dream Sleep Suits and Sacks ($56)
Once your child has reached toddlerhood, they are sleeping with their arms free. If you’re looking for a toddler sleep product that brings comfort AND safety, this is it. We love the Love to Dream Independent Sleeper Collection because it keeps your child comfortable, warm, and safe all night long. You can choose from sleep bags to sleep suits depending on the level of warmth you need for your child. As a bonus, sleep sacks help prevent your toddler from climbing out of their crib by limiting the range of motion to raise their leg to climb. Buy it here!.
Tommee Tippee GroAnywhere Portable Blackout Blind ($36 )
Any sleep training expert will tell you that a dark room is key to having your child sleep well. Unfortunately, with travel or moving transitions, your child will be in a room without blackout curtains. Known more for baby bottles, Tommee Tippee moves into the toddler sleep products market well with these portable shades. This set folds up small so you can travel with it, and suctions to a window to provide total darkness for your sleeping child. Buy it here!

A SlumberPod is a must for any family who loves to travel! It folds up into a packable tent that you can throw in your suitcase, and then transforms into a tent that can fit over a portable crib or toddler bed. SlumberPod provides total blackout — you can have bright lights on in the room and your child will still be sleeping in the dark. It has enough ventilation that your child will still have air flow. You can also put a sound machine or monitor inside. It’s perfect for hotel rooms, room sharing due to visitors, or any situation where you can’t find a dark and quiet place to lay your child down. It’s also great if you are room sharing! Buy it here!
Organic Toddler Pillow ($20)
We recommend that children start sleeping with a pillow at about 2 years old, even in a crib. We love this toddler pillow because it’s made to support their little neck, head, and spine and was designed by chiropractors to help children achieve a deeper sleep. It’s also so soft and very breathable! The transition to a pillow can sometimes be hard for a child, but this is our favorite! Buy it here!
Teething Guard Set ($17)
Teething toddlers, oh my! We all know teething toddlers will chomp on anything they can, including their cribs. These minky liners protect the quality of your crib and give your toddler a softer chew. If you’ve spent a decent amount of money on a crib, you don’t want the finish being ruined by little teeth marks! Buy it here!
Vertical Crib Liners ($138)
Toddler tantrums in a crib can be loud and painful if they take their anger out by banging their head or body in the crib. Plus, it’s always worrisome for parents to hear them getting hurt! That’s why we love these vertical crib liners. They pad the inside of the crib while maintaining sleep safety. Because they’re vertical, they allow space and breathing room if your child likes to sleep pressed onto the side of the crib. These cover the sides of the crib and not the top, and they can be used in conjunction with the teething guard listed above. Buy it here!
