Tips to Get Your Baby to Sleep:
1. Setting the sleeping time
Set the sleeping time of the child. make sure not to change that time. Like, if the child is sleeping at 9 pm, get the habit to make him sleep every day at same time. Taking the child to sleep create the environment favourable for him. The room should be dark, there should not be any noise disturbance which affects his sleep. Take the child to the bed sometime before he sleeps. Make him sleep on the bed rather than taking him to the bed after he sleeps.
2. Feeding the child before sleep
Before making the baby sleep make sure his feed properly. neither the child should not be hungry as it will disrupt his sleep nor he is overfed. Avoid giving a heavy meal to the child like cereal grains or porridge. It is better to give light fruit like apple or just give milk.
3.The environment of the room
The environment of the room where the child sleeps matters a lot. There should not be a television in the room as a child will get the habit of watching the TV and then sleep. This is not good for their proper development. The temperature of the room should be normal. It should neither be too cold nor too hot. The temperature of 25 degree Celsius is considered to be perfect for the child. If the child is in habit of drinking tea or coffee or eating chocolate before sleep, Better to stop this at the earliest as it disturbs their sleep.
4. External environment
If the child is small, allow them to play for some time. Expose the kids to outside environment which will help them in getting fresh air and body will be exercised. If the child is bigger, make him exercise every day. This will help them to have a better sleep. If the child is in habit of sleeping during the day, make sure that he does not sleep more than 1 hour because if he sleeps for the longer duration during the day, it will disturb their sleep during the night.
