Sleepy time tips
AS ANY PARENT knows, when a youngster
doesn’t get enough sleep, that little darling can
quickly turn into a meltdown-prone monster.
What do you do if your child shuns sleep?
Costco member Kimberley Clayton
Blaine, a licensed family and child therapist
and mother of two boys (
com), suggests seven steps that any parent can
follow to encourage good sleep habits.
Determine how much sleep your child
should be getting. While the right amount
varies with age and may also vary with the
child, the following guide can help determine
whether your tot is getting enough shut-eye:
• 1 year old: 13 hours
• 2 years old: 12 to 15 hours (includes nap)
• 3 years old: 11 to 14 hours (includes nap)
• 4 years old: 10 to 13 hours (includes nap)
• 5 years old: 10 to 12. 5 hours (no nap)
Develop a schedule and stick to it. With
consistent times for naps and bedtime, your
little one will know what to expect and adjust
to the circadian rhythm of the sleep schedule
you set. “Plan your errands and day trips
around naptime,” Blaine suggests, “and stick to
your nighttime schedule, even on vacation. If
your child knows that he can expect to sleep at
the same time every day—no matter where
you are or what you are doing—it will create
the sleep habits you want.”
