Tips on How To Put Kids To Bed
First phase: Birth to 1 year old
This phase is characterised by “when will I sleep again?”. Newborns and infants need enormous attention, so this is the most sleep-deprived period of time.
Just be patient and loving. Employ consistency and naturally the child will learn to put themself to sleep independently.
Phase two: 1 to 6 years
After the storm of the first phase, it’s time to put that sleep routine to work and stay consistent by starting around the same time each day.
Third phase: 7 to 12 years
As they become older, the better they'll sleep. It’s mostly about maintaining that routine. Limiting after-school activities will help them fall into a deeper sleep. If they have homework, best to do this before dinner, rather than before bed.
Phase four: 13+ years
It's been revealed most teens don’t get enough sleep, due to body changes, making them night owls. No matter what age your child is, you need two things: consistency and persistence.
