New Year, New Bed Time Routine

Happy New Year! Is your new year resolution to get more sleep? Or to be specific to get your child to go to bed?

Now is the perfect time to start that bed time routine. The excitement of Christmas is over; the disruption is over now it’s time to get that sleep routine sorted out.

As with any routine the key is consistency, you should stick to the same things every night and if they go to stay over at grandparents ask then to follow the same routine.

You will find that it will take a few days for the routine to work but once it’s in place you will wonder why you didn’t do this before.

Here is our suggested routine for a toddler:

  • Bedtime snack with some warm milk
  • Bath time, use a lavender bubble bath to help sooth them
  • Get them dressed into their bedclothes
  • Put them in bed
  • Have a chat about both of your days that will help them relax
  • Story time; try not to choose something too exciting
  • Kiss them goodnight and leave them to fall asleep
  • If your child doesn’t like the room too dark then leave a night light on for them or of they prefer it really dark then an easy blackout blind is perfect.
