For most parents, putting their active toddlers to sleep is a difficult and challenging task. However, there are some tricks that can help you can put your little darling to sleep.
Here are some tops on how to put your toddler to sleep:
- Toddler and the bed
Much like adults, a toddler’s bed should be comfortable and relaxing. Thus, make sure that the bed sheets and blankets are always clean and comfy. Always remember to change the sheets at least once every week. Another trick is to use light colored sheets as this is more relaxing to the eyes.
- Bed should only be used for sleeping
Make sure that you train your toddler to use the bed only for sleeping. This means that toys should not be allowed in the bed. Also, remember to remove all plastic and sharp edge toys to ensure the safety of your kid.
- Relaxing music
Aside from bedtime stories, playing a soothing and relaxing can also help your child sleep better.
- Dealing with separation anxiety
Most toddlers have a difficulty sleeping because of separation anxiety. This means that your toddler wants you to sleep beside him or her. You can deal with this by gently assuring your child that you are just in the room if he needs you.
