Good sleep habits are beneficial for all of us. Lack of sleep in adults makes one go low on energy, feeling tired, exhaustive and less active but if toddlers do not get proper and adequate sleep they even show aggression in behaviour. There is no universal bedtime rule or routines for toddlers, so you need to address sleep issues considering the sleep needs and the routine that fits you best. Whether it is a pajama change, a bath, a massage or even a long lullaby with a cuddle, the routine is all your decision. However, some basic routines that you need to monitor are listed as below:
Some toddlers have the habit of sleeping only on the same bed and only at home. If you are out it becomes hard for you to make them sleep at a hotel or at a relative’s house. Carry some stuff like his bed sheet or his toys with whom he feels comfortable and is able to sleep peacefully. It is wise not to encourage any such habits, you may make him sleep at different places once in a while. Whatever you do, make sure you carry the ritual till his bedroom, lest he feels that bedroom is the place where he is dumped for the rest of the night.
