Ensuring a Good Night Sleep
Ensuring a Good Night Sleep

Possessing a bedtime routine is a really good means to make sure your toddler or preschool-aged child receives a fantastic night’s sleep. It’s a good idea to start with a bedtime routine anywhere from the age of 4 months. It is a well known face that young children strive off routine and it helps promote healthy sleep throughout the night.

There are lots of activities you’re able to put in your bedtime ritual. These include things like a warm bath or shower, breast feed, bottle or cup of milk, quiet games, a story book, a massage or a song. Good bedtime routines start approx 30 mins before you want your child to go to sleep. At the start of the bedtime routine you should always turn the lights down to help stimulate and produce melatonin (which is the sleepy hormone).

Other things to take into consideration when trying to promote healthy sleep include:

Overtiredness: If your toddler is overtired then they won’t be able to fall asleep easily. Tired signs include things such as yawning, rubbing of their eyes, crying, arching of the back and even hyperactivity. If you leave it too long to put your toddler to bed and they become overtired then they will find it very hard to get to sleep.

Undertiredness: If your toddler is not tired enough then they will also find it difficult to fall asleep. Ensure that your little one is on an age appropriate routine with enough ‘awake’ time during the day and between nap times to ensure that they are tired enough to fall asleep at bed time.

Hunger: Your toddler will not sleep very well on an empty stomach. They also won’t sleep very well if they are too full. Ensure you feed your child dinner at least 1 hour before bedtime to give enough time for their body to digest the food.

Sleep Environment: A dark room is best as darkness helps produce melatonin AKA the sleepy hormone. As well as darkness, the room should be at the correct temperature (not too hot and not too cold) and your toddler should be dressed appropriately for bed. The night time temperature is at its coldest between 4am and 5am so ensuring that not only the room temperature but also that your toddler is dressed warm enough for this time is essential to a good night sleep.

Why Having a Good Bedtime Routine is Important
Why Having a Good Bedtime Routine is Important

A good bedtime routine is very important for toddlers. Sleep is just as important as food and love and helps promote healthy growth and development. Creating and consistently following a good bedtime routine is the start of setting up good sleep habits. Here are some of the reasons to start a good bedtime routine today:

Consistency: Toddlers strive off routine. Doing the same thing over and over again may seem monotonous for us but toddlers work extremely well off this and know what to expect each night. It will make sleep time easier as well as help develop healthy sleep habits overall.

Healthy development: Sleep promotes healthy growth and brain development. Without a good bedtime routine we cannot expect our children to sleep well overnight. Sleep is crucial for healthy growth and brain development in children and without sleep, studies have proven that health issues can occur. Having a good bedtime routine in place helps set your child up for a good night of sleep.

Relaxation: Feeling calm and relaxed at bedtime is important for not just children but also adults. If we are feeling worked up, then going to sleep is not easy and sometimes impossible. Good bedtime routines include things such as bath, shower, milk, massage, quiet game, story book etc. All of these things will help relax your child and get their bodies ready for sleep.
