Don't force your child to sleep when you are trying to put them to bed. If you do, they won't be able to sleep and will only become more awake. Try using calming tricks on your child instead.

If your child is a real light sleeper, you will want to check anything and everything that could wake them up, especially the light and the noise.

Try to have early dinners, so there is a time gap between dinner and bedtime for the food to digest. A one-and-a-half-hour gap between dinner and bedtime would be a great option for your child.


Keep Naps Short
