Naptime routine for toddlers: Strategies for success


Last updated:

Ensure a successful naptime routine for toddlers by following these strategies: Begin with naptime preparation, creating a consistent and comfortable environment. Engage in a pre-nap routine that includes hygiene, bonding, and comfort. Ease the toddler into sleep with a gentle transition and a consistent sleep phrase. Allow them to wake up naturally and maintain a calm post-nap routine, including a small snack or drink. If needed, troubleshoot by adjusting naptime, experimenting with comfort items, and consulting a pediatrician for persistent sleep issues.
