If using plants and other natural active ingredients benefits sleep quality, the family environment is also very important in facilitating calm and falling asleep.
Bedtime and wake-up time
To avoid disturbing your child’s biological clock, keep more or less the same bedtimes and wake-up times when possible, even during vacation periods. This makes it possible to avoid spending several weeks trying to find the school rhythm.
Establish a sleep routine
To soothe small anxieties at nightfall, it is best to set up a routine that allows you to prepare for sleep. This can include bathing, which promotes relaxation, reading, or sharing a moment of calm and child-parent exchange. Thus, the child will feel reassured and more inclined to go to bed.
Limit stimulating screens and activities
For tireless people who are always on the run, try reducing all stimulating activity and turning off screens at least one hour before bedtime. Instead, opt for reading or quiet board games that will keep your little ones occupied by offering them a period of relaxation.
