If you’re tired of the back and forth between you and your kids each night and you wish they would just go and stay asleep, you have a little work to do. Getting them to sleep every night means getting into a consistent routine. Below, you’ll find some suggestions that will help.
Put Them To Bed At The Same Time Every Night
The first thing you need to do is make sure you’re putting your kids to bed at the same time every single night. This will get them into a routine and ensure they get tired at the same time every day.
Get Them Up At The Same Time Every Day
As well as putting your kids to bed at the same time, you want to get them up at the same time every day too. This will further improve their sleep hygiene - stick to it even on weekends!
Keep Screen Time To A Minimum
Screens can keep kids awake way longer than they should be. Make sure they’re not using one at least a few hours before bed and ensure there’s nothing in their room.
Bathe Them Before Bed
A bath before bed can help the body get to the perfect sleeping temperature and create a relaxing feeling.
Create The Right Atmosphere
Make sure you have black out blinds, comfortable pillows, and anything else that will create the right atmosphere for sleep. The infographic below can give you some suggestions, too.
