Helpful Sleep Hints for Kids of All Ages
1. Your child will enjoy Nighty Night best if you let them discover its relaxing nature on their own. We have found that some children respond best to Nighty Night if they are not told that it will make them fall asleep!
2. Nighty Night is not intended to replace parental supervision at bedtime or replace the reading a good book to your child at bedtime. But it does help with the establishment of a sleep routine as part of effective sleep training.
3. Child sleep experts say creating a relaxing routine
at bedtime is best, including lowering the lights and playing relaxing
music at bedtime, reading a book, and avoiding sugars and caffeine
several hours before bedtime.
4. Parents need to stick to a predictable routine, and try not to show signs of stress at bedtime. Keep interaction positive, stay the course, and your child will learn to go to bed.
5. For adults, sleep experts first suggest taking off
the pressure to "get to sleep" versus relaxing and getting "rest."
