Three Key Tips for creating Healthy Sleep Habits

I often get asked – What are the most important things to keep in mind when trying to implement healthy sleep habits for young children? ⁣

Well, here are some key points, I know I have mentioned them a few times, but they really are very important! ⭐️⁣

1 : 𝐒𝐞𝐜𝐮𝐫𝐞 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐒𝐚𝐟𝐞 ⁣
Babies are not born with the ability to self soothe, therefore they need the support of an adult to help them handle and regulate their fears and emotions. Over time, by having lots of experiences of being comforted and feeling safe, babies learn to grow the capacity to comfort themselves. So lots of cuddles and reassurance will go a long way!⭐️ ⁣

2: 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐑𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭 𝐓𝐨𝐨𝐥𝐬⁣
Using the right sleep associations that work for your child and family. They may include things such as a comforter or, the big one, a consistent bedtime routine! Which takes me to number… ⭐️⁣

3: 𝐂𝐨𝐧𝐬𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐲 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐏𝐫𝐞𝐝𝐢𝐜𝐭𝐚𝐛𝐥𝐞 𝐁𝐞𝐝𝐭𝐢𝐦𝐞 𝐑𝐨𝐮𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐞⁣
Here’s the thing, predictability is incredibly important in a child’s life. Predictable routines and predictable interactions with parents and caregivers help a child establish a style to regulate stress and minimise crying. Therefore, consistency and a predictable bedtime routine is very soothing for children and will help them get a better night’s sleep. ⭐️⁣
