Twittermoms asked us: How do you get your child to sleep? I almost had to laugh. Sleep? What exactly is sleep?
As a mom of 4 kids, only one of whom willingly puts himself to bed, I have had to adapt some sure-fire tips to get the kiddos to bed before midnight.
One thing is I let them pick out their own pjs. Nothing ruins a well planned bedtime quicker then a toddler meltdown because she wants a certain princess pj...No NOT THAT ONE!!!! (Check out DramaU.net to see how you can win a years worth of Pajamas!!!)
Lights out! I have found with the lights off, no nightlights ( I leave the hall light on for late night trips to the bathroom) they fall asleep and stay asleep better
A consistent nap and bed time. It doesn't matter if it is a school night or not. The kids go to bed at the same time everynight. They take a nap around the same time every day.
They each have a favorite blanket or toy they sleep with.
If they get out of bed, then I just put them back in. I try not to engage in a conversation or anything with them.
While bed time still is tough, it is getting easier.
Now if they would stop yelling through the walls at eachother, life would be grand!
