Slide 1: ==== ==== Get the Best Book on Getting Toddlers to Sleep "Go The F**ck to Sleep" here... http://tinyurl.com/7oo5f67 ==== ==== No matter how tired your toddler is, it can be difficult to get him to go to sleep every night. Whether he is "over tired" or just in a cranky mood, it can wreak havoc on a parent's (and the entire household's) sleep time. Children thrive on routines. It lets them know that there is order in a world that is often filled with chaos. Here are a few of the tried and true tips that I have heard many parents recommend (and that I have used myself) to make the bedtime routine work. Splish Splash I was Takin' a Bath A very important part of the bedtime routine is the child's bath. You need to be sure to bathe your child every night (for lots of reasons!). A good time to do this would be approximately one hour before bedtime. Let them play and splash around, and be sure stay in the bathroom with your child and interact with them. This is a great time, especially for working parents, to connect with your child on his or her level. Make sure you aren't encouraging over stimulating activities. Choose play with a focus on getting the child to unwind. Simply washing her hair can provide a mini massage and start the relaxing process. During the bath it is always a good idea to use some relaxing aromatherapy. Whether you buy bath bubbles designed to be calming or use your own natural essential oils, there are a great number of ways to use aromatherapy to get your child to relax. One great way is to put a drop or 2 (no more than that; it is strong!) of REAL lavender essential oil into the bath water or mix with your child's favorite bubble bath. Be very careful to dilute it before you add it to the bath water, as concentrated oils may irritate delicate skin. Candles or warming oils are another great way to get some calming scents into the room. Of course, you have to be certain that these items are far away from your little one's reach! If you are looking for an array of aromatherapy products, search the web using the terms "calming bath products for children", and you will find a plethora of great products. Dress for Success Buy your child pajamas that feature characters they love and make sure you only dress her in those pajamas when it is time for bed. This will be a signal to your little one that when the pjs go on, that bedtime is near. Make sure you take the pajamas off in the morning and dress her letting her know that bed time is over. Open a Book I think maybe the single most important bed time activity is reading to your child. This not only
Slide 2: helps her relax at bedtime, but reading to your child can help her with important developmental aspects such as language. Let your child pick the book each night, again making sure that the story is not too exciting or over stimulating. Give her a choice of no more than 3-4 books. I'm sure you will be less than keen on the idea of reading the same book each night, but remember your boredom will pay off in getting you more sleep. Music Soothes the Savage Toddler Soft music can be the best tool for relaxation there is. It works for adults and will work wonders with children. Opt for music that is soothing such as a recording of lullabies, or soft classical music. Stay away from anything that is fast and upbeat. Again, you do not want to stimulate, you want to calm. Keep it Under Cover Encourage your child to use a favorite blanket or stuffed toy. Attachments are an important part of childhood development and are important for giving your child a sense of security. If they have a favorite blanket, then it can help make bedtime a lot easier. When children feel safe and secure, it calms and comforts them. If your child doesn't have a favorite choose a blanket or plush animal to use only at bedtime to encourage an attachment. Everybody Needs a Hug If your child is having problems going to sleep at night, simply lying next to her, cuddling her up close, and rubbing her back or stroking her hair may be all it takes to get her to nod off. Sing to your child, play soft music or recite favorite poems while you are holding them close. That's Entertainment If your child has a favorite video or television program, incorporate that into the bedtime routine. Again, avoid anything that will cause them to be over excited and start it early enough so that it can end before bedtime. And whatever you do, don't fall for the "watch it again" ploy. Let your child know that he will watch it once and when it is over, then that means it is time for bed. Hear My Prayer If you practice any sort of religion, and your child is old enough to understand, say bedtime prayers with her. This will give her a sense that there is someone watching over her when Mom and Dad aren't there. It will help to calm and relax her. Even if you don't practice a religion, simply talking over the events of the day and "putting to rest" any controversy or upsetting events can help a child feel more at ease. Putting Him is His Place If you have trouble with your toddler getting out of his "big bed", go back to a crib for a while. If he is prone to getting up and wandering around, anything can happen to him while you are sleeping. Your little one's safety is the most important thing. If you need to use the confinement as a tool to keep them in bed long enough to fall asleep, there is nothing wrong with that. I have heard of
Slide 3: many parents leaving their children in a crib up to the age of 3 or 4 for that reason. Head Them Off at the Pass Avoid the "drink of water" or the "I'm hungry" maneuver by giving your child a sip of water or even a very small bedtime snack. Be careful to choose snacks that are low in sugar and don't give an excessive amount of liquid, especially if he or she has a tendency to wet the bed. We Will Rock You Rock your child for a few minutes before bedtime. You don't have to necessarily rock her until she is asleep, but giving her time to be held and cuddled until she is dulcified is a great bedtime practice that you can begin at just about any age. Sleeping With the Progeny There is a lot of division on whether it is a good idea to let your child sleep with you. There are a lot of families all over the country that practice "co-sleeping" or, in other words, letting their children sleep with them. If it comes down to getting enough sleep then you may have to change your views on this practice. Children feel much more secure in the presence of a parent, and if they are having a very difficult time sleeping, then maybe you should consider giving it a go. Just make sure that no one in the bed has a tendency to sleep so heavily that they could roll over and crush a small body. Make sure that you don't keep too many pillows next to your child, and avoid co-sleeping on water beds. Early to Bed Nearly every toddler needs a nap during the day. Make sure you aren't giving your child a nap too late in the day, or that they aren't sleeping too long. Most parents will agree that a great nap time is immediately after lunch, or around 1 pm. That is a natural time for feeling sleepy, even for adults. Let your child sleep no longer than 1 1/2 to 2 hours. If it is difficult to get them awake, have a glass of cold juice on hand for them, to help them wake up, or at this time put in a stimulating video. It is very important to stick to a nap routine, just as you would a night time one. Sleeping Like a Baby; Routine, Routine, Routine! Whether or not you agree or disagree with any of the above techniques, the bottom line is this: the single most important part of bed time is an established routine. So whatever you do, make sure you establish a bedtime routine early on and stick to it even when that means leaving church or the family get-together before conclusion of activities. Of course, the older your child gets, the more the routine will have to be adjusted. Make those adjustments in small steps, not changing too many things all at once. If your child has never had a routine, then start one now. It may be difficult to suddenly start one and get used to it, but stick to it no matter what. You are only doing yourself, your child and the rest of the family a disservice by not creating a bedtime routine that gives everyone in the household the chance to get enough sleep.
