Sleep is one of my favourite things. If it isn’t one of yours, then quite frankly what is wrong with you? I LOVE it!
So, anybody with the key to helping me have a better nights sleep, or someone with some top tips for getting more, is a saint in my eyes.
Any parent with kids will know that it is a much talk about subject. It either goes one way or another… You either get it or you don’t!
Alfie’s sleeping patterns vary massively. We either get a good night or a bad night. There doesn’t seem to be an in between. However, when he has a good night we typically have a good night too.
There are lots of things you can get to help a toddler go to bed at night, and, most importantly, stay in bed at night! Sleeping bags and clocks that tell them to stay in bed are two that I think every parent should try. Black out blinds or curtains are definitely going to help in the summer nights too.
What tips have you got for a good nights sleep with a toddler?
If you are spending 25 years (really?!) of your life in a bed sleeping, then you really need to be doing it right. Here are some tips for getting a good nights sleep:
- Pick a bedtime and try to stick to it
- Make sure you are comfortable
- Don’t go to bed hungry
- Have enough pillows
- Buy a comfortable mattress
- Keep the bedroom dark
- Have a nap if you are tired
- Kill your husband if he wakes you up snoring!
- NEVER wake a sleeping baby!!!!
I watched this Adjustamatic video recently and it really made me question the way I sleep.
How many pillows do you sleep with? I sleep with 2 like it suggests in the video. But that’s the only thing I do right when it comes to how they suggest they sleep. I’d never thought about positioning and what it does to your body, whilst you sleep, before now.
Are you a #SleepExpert? Do you do what they suggest in the video? I could definitely do with taking on some tips for a better nights sleep that’s for sure. It may even help cut down on my caffeine intake!
A new mattress that helps us sleep and helps my back is definitely on my Christmas list this year…
