As a parent, you know the challenges that we face when it comes to bedtime. When our kiddiez don't get enough sleep, they can get irritable and uncomfortable.
Find out 5 ways to help your kiddiez fall and stay asleep.
1. Before Bedtime-Time
The time before bed is generally what will have the greatest effect on how your little one sleeps. If they get excited and get an energy boost, it will take longer to get them to sleep than it would if they are relaxed and comfortable.
Soothing Bootiez are a great way to get your little one relaxed before bedtime. When heated, these Bootiez release the natural healing power and earthy fragrance of pure Essential Oilz which soothez & warms tiny, cold feet while calming mind & body.
These Soothing Bootiez are designed with extra padding and have non-slip soles to ensure your child's little feet are comfortable and warm.
2. Routine, Routine & More Routine
Placing an importance on a routine helps the kiddiez understand that they need to follow them.
There is no exact routine that should be followed, but in general, yours should include all the things that your child needs to do before going to sleep i.e brush teeth, have their glass of water/milk, kiss the family goodnight etc.
You may want to read a book with your little one, talk about the day, or hear their stories but whatever you choose to do, it is important to ensure that you keep the routine 30 minutes or less, and ensure you are firm when it's time to sleep.
3. Keep Them Cosy
There is nothing better than snuggling into bed at that perfect temperature, when you are not too hot or too cold. What most parents forget, is their kiddiez are more likely to kick blankets off during the night and can’t fall back asleep afterwards because they feel chilly.
Therefore, it is important to ensure that your kiddies are dressed warmly to avoid the midnight chill. The Aroma Hugz Plush Toyz are also a great way to keep your child warm and comfortable.
Aroma Hugz are soft plush toyz with removable tummy inners that can be heated in the microwave. These toyz are not only heatable but also contain Lavender Essential Oilz which help the kidz drift off to dreamland peacefully, feeling warm and snuggled throughout the night.
4. Sleep Environment
Ensuring that the room is dark and quiet will help your little one avoid getting distracted during bedtime & fall asleep quicker. If your child is nervous in the dark, turn on a small night light, or leave the hall light on and the bedroom slightly ajar, for their reassurance.
5. One More Thing
We all know that our kidz will always ask for that one last thing before bedtime, whether it’s a hug, a drink of water or one more book to read, that one last thing is important to them.
Do your best to make their ‘one more thing’ part of the bedtime routine and let your child know that once they have their last request, its a kiss & a hug and then they need to sleep snug like a bug with their new bestie - Aroma Hugz.
Bedtime doesn't have to be a difficult time and we at Aroma Soothz will help make bedtime part of the special moments with your little one.
