Stick to the regular sleep routine and make it clear the day’s activities are winding down to help your toddler fall asleep. This will tell your little one it’s time for bed.
Starting around 15 months your baby may begin to develop a will of its own and the sleep routine is the time when this is most obvious. Your baby will use all of its strategic skills and considerable charm to put off the inevitable and stay with you. Don’t give in and make it clear in a calm, loving but decisive manner that it’s time for bed.
The Bag Kidz makes bedtime more agreeable for your child, especially in colder weather. Around the age of 2 1/2, toddlers often make the transition from the sleeping bag to sleeping under a duvet. Some children really miss their familiar sleeping bag, causing them to be restless again at night. This sleeping bag keeps your baby’s world small and familiar for a little while longer. Tossing and turning can cause your child to throw off the duvet and being cold interferes with deep sleep. The Bag Kidz combines safely with a duvet and keeps your toddler nice and warm throughout the night.
Tips to help toddlers sleep in their own bed
- Give your child some one-on-one attention during the day so there’s no need to ‘catch up’ at bedtime. Nothing spectacular, just a fun chat over lunch, having a laugh while brushing his teeth, ... Use the daily care moments.
- Give compliments when they’re due - sincerity is crucial. Affirmation helps build your child’s self-esteem and self-confidence. Trust is necessary to be able to sleep quietly. Stick to the regular bedtime routine and ignore your toddler’s charm offensive.
