The more rested a baby is- the more they sleep!

The more rested a baby is- the more they sleep!

IMPORTANT REMINDER: SLEEP EQUALS SLEEP
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
➡ Knowing your baby’s sleepy cues is very important. Learn to recognize them and act by getting your baby to bed.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⚠ An overtired and/or upset baby is more difficult to get to sleep.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sleep begets more sleep and overtired begets less sleep! Good sleep habits and patterns will be key to whether your child is a good sleeper through their toddler years and beyond.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✅ Stick with it, and don’t forget to congratulate yourself on working hard to teach your child to sleep so that both of you are able to enjoy more activities, better moods and better health.

Have you noticed sleep equals sleep in your home?

Sleep considerations for kids going back to school!

BACK TO SCHOOL + SLEEP
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We know back to school this year is feeling and looking different for so many families, but the same sleep struggles are likely going to show up the closer we get to the start of the new school year.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
📌 Save this post for later
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✅ Share this so other parents can help their kids navigate sleep and back to school.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⬆️ Read our entire Back To School Sleep Manual (it's really a blog post, but it has SO MUCH INFORMATION) here: https://goodnightsleepsite.com/blog/2020/08/04/back-to-school-covid-sleep-tips/
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Back to School Sleep To-Do List:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. Have a family meeting, talk about the challenges and what our expectations are for sleep and develop family sleep rules. Make a visual schedule for the bedtime routine and involve them in the steps.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2. Look at your schedule, are they getting enough sleep? Can you bump bedtime earlier?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3. Look at those strategies for helping them fall to sleep, incorporate some mindfulness, deep breathing, yoga or visualization to work on relaxing their body and mind from a busy day. Build these into the end of the day and do them together to create that connection and down time at the end of the day.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4. Create a shared journal where they can write down their worries or struggles and we can read it. It can be hard to express those feelings or fears so having this outlet can be great for them.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
5. Look at where tech is happening and could it be affecting sleep? We typically recommend no tech at least an hour before bed. Each child is different but we also want to ensure they aren’t watching shows or playing games that are too stimulating which can also affect them settling to sleep and may even cause night wakings.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
6. For early or night wakings try a gro clock or alarm clock to help them understand time and to stay in bed until a set time or until the sun comes up

Raise your hand if you love bedtime but don’t love the bedtime process 🖐
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It doesn’t have to be a struggle. Establish a consistent bedtime routine to help get your little one ready for bed.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Every family has a favourite bedtime routine, and order, that seems to work for them.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
CREATE YOUR OWN BEDTIME ROUTINE
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Examples of things you could include are:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🛀 Bath (doesn’t have to be every night, and sometimes baths are just too stimulating to be in the bedtime routine!)
🦷 Brushing teeth
👶 Diaper or potty time
🛏 Putting on pajamas, a special sleeper or sleep sack
📖 Story time
🎶 Songs
❤️ Cuddles and for older kids you could also make this a time of day that you chat about their day.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We always advocate for consistent, age-appropriate bedtimes, and we love hearing about how families create this special time together.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What's in your bedtime routine? Is there a favourite song to sing? Or book to read?

How to Get Your Baby to Nap Longer

"Is this situation familiar to you? Your baby falls asleep for a nap only to wake up again around 30-45 minutes later. Trust me – it’s not just your baby. If you have a chronic cat napper at home and your baby is not sleeping properly at nap time, I have good news. Short naps can be explained and corrected."

Short naps are very common- Check out this article by Good Night Sleep Site for some good tips on how to lengthen them. This takes time and consistency as the sleep drive is less during the day.

We reached out to Leah when we were in the middle of our daughter’s four-month sleep regression. She was waking up every two hours and had to be rocked back to sleep every time. No one was getting any sleep. Sleep deprivation was wearing on us and we wanted to try some gentle sleep training but as new parents we weren’t sure where to start. Thank goodness for Leah, who took the time to talk with us about our baby’s sleep habits and needs and to really listen and build a custom sleep plan just for us. Not only did she give us the tools to succeed in sleep training, but her warmth and wisdom gave us the confidence we needed to see the plan through. Within a few days, our baby was sleeping through the night, with just one scheduled dream feed, and her naps lengthened as well. Suddenly we were well-rested and felt more like ourselves! We had the evenings to ourselves again! And best of all, our daughter now wakes up joyfully and with a big grin on her face every morning, having slept so well at night. We are so thankful for Leah and her expertise, calming presence and good natured, non-judgemental approach to sleep coaching. We would highly recommend her to anyone struggling with sleep! - Hilary and Yann, May 2020, Montreal
