Bedtime Routine for Toddlers
Establish a calming bedtime routine for your toddler to ensure a smooth transition to sleep. Begin with a light snack or drink to satisfy their hunger, followed by dimming the lights to create a relaxing atmosphere. Assist them in changing into cozy pajamas and attending to their hygiene needs, including using the toilet or changing diapers, washing up, and brushing teeth. Engage in soothing activities such as reading a bedtime story, singing a lullaby, or playing soft music. Offer comfort through cuddles or a gentle massage before saying goodnight and turning off the lights. Finally, leave the room, allowing your toddler to drift off to sleep independently.
