Tips To Manage Sleep Problems In Children

Sleep is important for the well-being of any child as it helps them to develop healthy habits, form friendships and improve their concentration. Every human being needs a period of sleep in every day to rest their mind and body.

Sleep problems in children can be a cause of great distress. But, there are simple things that you can do to help with sleep problems in your child. Here are some tips on how to organize your child's sleep routine, as well as how to deal with common sleep problems in children.

Establish a routine

Help your child develop a regular bedtime routine by establishing bedtime and a waking time. The more consistent you can make these times, the easier it will be for your child to fall asleep at night and stay asleep through the night.

Teach your child how to wind down after a busy day. The most important part of sleeping well is winding down before you go to bed. Encourage your child to take a warm bath or shower before going to bed, brushing teeth or reading books, so that your child knows what they need to do before falling asleep.

Make sure to keep the same bedtime and wake time on weekends.

Provide a safe, secure, and comfortable environment for sleeping.

Have a comfortable bed for your child to sleep in. Make sure that you have enough pillows and blankets for your child to use.  Also, make sure their bedroom is dark enough for them to fall asleep easily so that they don't have any distractions from light or noise when trying to fall asleep later on in the evening

  Limit your child's naps during the day to no more than one nap per day. 

Give your child an age-appropriate nap schedule that includes naps during the day. As kids grow and develop, naps give their bodies and minds time to rest and recharge during those big changes. Plus, if children get overtired, it’s actually harder for them to fall asleep easily at nighttime; however, naps should be kept short. Researchers studied how naps affected toddlers’ nighttime sleep and found that the longer -- and later -- a child napped, the harder it was for them to fall asleep at night.

Consider whether an underlying medical condition may be contributing to the sleep disruption.

Sleep problems are common among children, especially when they're young but have you considered whether an underlying medical condition may be contributing to the sleep disruption of your child?

If you think that your child might have a medical condition that is contributing to their sleep problems, you should contact your doctor. They can help determine if there are any underlying conditions that may be causing the sleep disruption and work with you to come up with a plan for treatment.

Have a calming bedtime ritual

Have a calming bedtime ritual for your child. It can be reading a book to your child before going to bed, or listening to Personalized Lullabies that will soothe your precious child to sleep You can also get some quiet time with a pet, or a Personalized Singing Stuffed Animal to bring them a sense of security and reduces negative feelings, such as loneliness and anxiety
