Helping Your Kids Fall – and Stay – Asleep

Another great post from the JBF Corporate Blog – enjoy!

Once your kids learn to fall asleep on their own it becomes a lot easier for the parents. These bedtime tips will come in handy and you’ll be able to pick and choose what works best for your family/child and what doesn’t.

Have Down-Time

Add at least an hour of down time at night before your child goes to sleep. By doing this you won’t be stressed out and ruches. It’s always better when kids have time for 1-2 books before bed. Stick to just 2 calm and relaxing books to help your child sleep.

Cuddle Time

No matter the age kids will always want to have cuddle time with their mom. It’s the one place they feel the safest. Cherish these moments because there will come a time when they feel they are too old for this. Having mom or dad lie down with their child as they fall to sleep can be very helpful. Once kids they fall into a deep sleep, they normally in it for the long run.

Get a Nightlight

If the darkness is scaring your kids to the point they can’t sleep opt for a nightlight. This way they wake up in the mid of the night and become afraid due to the darkness, the nightlight will help reassure them and help them fall back asleep.

There are several other ways that might be beneficial to helping your child fall asleep but these 3 are what helped me and my family the most.
