Ah, holy sleep, dear super mommies.
For many parents of toddlers, it’s the golden ticket or, holy grail! – something we all hope for but often find hard, very hard to attain! If you’re searching for tips to help your little one get a good night’s rest, this article is for you. Here are 8 ways for getting your little babe’s mind to drift off into dreamland:
- Establish a bedtime routine. Having a consistent nighttime routine helps signal to your child that it’s time for bed and can help them relax so they fall asleep faster and more easily. Make sure you keep it short and sweet – no need to add too many extra activities!
2. Make sure you have time for loving cuddles. Kids need physical affection from their super mom, so don’t forget to give hugs and kisses before bed! Cuddling up in bed together is also a great way to bond and settle down for sleep.
3. Do calming simple activities before bedtime. A few minutes of quiet easy activities like coloring, playing with Legos, or reading will surely help your toddler unwind and make it easier for them to fall asleep.
4. Keep the bedroom off of distractions. Don’t let toys or new technology sneak into the bedroom – this will only encourage to more playtime and less sleep!
5. Avoid stimulants before bedtime. Caffeine and sugar will only make it harder for your baby to fall asleep, so try to avoid these foods close to bedtime as much as you can.
6. Make sure the bedroom is comfortable. A cool, dark, and quiet environment helps your child drift off faster. Consider investing in blackout curtains, a white noise machine, or a fan to help create a cozy sleeping little world for you baby.
7. Don’t rush in when they wake up at night! If your toddler wakes up during the night (which is pretty normal!), don’t rush in right away. Give them some time to settle down and if they still don’t go back to sleep after a few time, then you can go in and offer comfort and reassurance.
With these 7 tips, you should be well on your way to getting your toddler the sleep they need! Remember – good sleep hygiene routine start early, so it’s best to start working on them now! Good luck!
