Create a soothing bedtime routine
Kids display a lot more energy than adults. Contrarily to adults growing lethargic as they get sleepier, kids get bursts of energy. You may even notice your child be extra animated in the evenings, but this doesn’t mean putting off their bedtime. So this makes developing a wind-down routine even more critical.
Start their bedtime routine about an hour before you say “goodnight”. Set electronic boundaries to limit LED lighting that could interfere with your child’s sleep. Create a cozy bedroom environment with dimmed lights and a comfortable temperature. For a cherry on the cake, consult our roundup of the best mattresses for kids.
Then the next part is up to you and what your child wants to do! Some ideas include having a bath, putting on PJs, brushing teeth and reading a book. If you create a healthy, relaxing and enjoyable routine, your child may even look forward to bedtime. Now wouldn’t that be nice!
