Reading to your little ones before they hit the sack is a great way to help them calm down and relax after a long day at school. Having a routine also helps your toddler know what to expect to come next. When they see you pulling out a book from the shelf, it signals “it’s bedtime!”. Reading bedtime stories is also a perfect bonding activity and we’re sure your little ones will look forward to spending quality time with you before they sleep each night.Shop Oskar and Ellen Good Night Bear Book>>
3. Konges Sløjd Standard Havet Vintage Stripe Kids Pyjamas
Dress your little one in comfortable, natural fibre PJs.
Another rule of thumb for a good night’s sleep is wearing comfortable PJs that are not too tight. Go for PJs made with natural fibre or organic cotton since they’re more breathable and are safe for the delicate skin of babies and kids.
Avoid those made with synthetic materials such as polyester and acrylic since they trap heat and moisture. You won’t want your kid to wake up in the middle of the night feeling all sweaty and clammy!
4. Egmont Rabbit Lamp
Put a night light next to their bed. Night light is an indispensable tool to help your little ones sleep through the night. If your kid is afraid of the dark, having a room that’s dimly lit helps them sleep much better and it also makes it easier for you to check up on them after they’re asleep. Having a night light is also more reassuring for toddlers who are anxious to sleep by themselves in their new room or don’t want to sleep alone.Shop Egmont Rabbit Lamp >>
