How do I help my child fall asleep?

5 tips for deep sleep for children

Deep, healthy sleep is important from birth. The physical growth and brain development of babies is inextricably linked to the quality of their sleep. Parents who create a comfortable and relaxed sleeping atmosphere for their child are laying the foundation for a good future for their child. But how do you create the ideal sleeping environment and what really helps babies and children fall asleep relaxed? With our simple tips, parents can help their child slide gently and securely into the land of dreams.

Tip 1: Sleep rituals

Tip 1: Sleep rituals

Babies and toddlers sleep polyphasicly. This means that their sleep takes place in several short stages and a day-night rhythm must first be learned. To establish such a rhythm, bedtime routines that are ideally tied to specific times are particularly suitable. Eating together or bathing your child before bed can start a pleasant sleep routine. Particularly calming and therefore important parts of the routine are reading and singing in bed: the child falls asleep gently with the familiar sound of a beloved voice.

Tip 2: Reduce darkness

Tip 2: Reduce darkness

Fear of the dark makes it difficult for many children to fall asleep. Parents should definitely take these feelings seriously and deal with them calmly, because this conveys the compassion and security that a child needs to sleep peacefully. In addition, it can help to reduce darkness in the child's room: Leave the door to the child's room ajar, install a night light or stick fluorescent stars or figures on the wall with your child. Even a little more light can have a big effect on little dreamers and make it easier to fall asleep.

Tip 3: Security

Tip 3: Security

Does my child like to play in his room? An important question for parents, because if little time is spent in the children's room during the day, it may not be the little one's favorite place at night either. A cozy, comfortable interior is inviting, creates a sense of security and, in accordance with the Montessori approach , also stimulates the child's mind in a positive way so that individual potential can develop. With their soft shape, soft colors and pleasant smell, BENNI'S NEST beds are the ideal furniture to create such an environment. Their unique shape also gives each bed the character of a cozy nest in which people can enjoy reading or playing during the day.

Tip 4: Sleep companion

Tip 4: Sleep companion

In addition to security, the feeling of loving closeness also helps you fall asleep. Familiar cuddly toys like the BENNI'S NEST bed snake, our gently enveloping blanket and the soft bed linen create an atmosphere that feels like a loving hug. If you want to give your child an even stronger feeling of closeness, you can bring a cuddly blanket etc. into your own bed for a night. Afterwards, they smell familiar to mom and dad and become even better sleeping companions.

Tip 5: Calm and patience

Tip 5: Calm and patience

Sleeping well needs to be learned, so give your child time. The more relaxed you remain in this process, the more security you will convey to your child. For slightly older children, loving persistence is important in addition to a calm demeanor. Bring your child back to their own bed when they come out and then stay there with them for a while. Speak to your child in a gentle voice and promise to check on him or her every few minutes. Children who feel the presence of their parents can calm down better and fall asleep completely relaxed.

Conclusion

With a safe atmosphere, the right sleep rituals and enough time and patience, parents can easily create a comfortable sleeping atmosphere that allows babies and children to fall asleep relaxed. Thanks to BENNI'S NEST, you will always have the perfect partner at your side on the way to the land of dreams.
