What else can you do to ensure your child is getting a good night’s sleep?
- Establish a bedtime routine – A regular routine helps your child anticipate what is expected of them at bedtime and helps avoid struggles.
- Feel full – Give your child a small healthy snack about an hour before bedtime to avoid hunger pangs.
- Stick to it – Bedtime routines on weekends are just as important as weekdays.
- Set the mood – Create a sleep friendly environment by lowering the noise level, dimming the lights and checking the temperature of your child’s room.
