Toddler Sleep Strategies
How to Fix Toddler
Let’s talk about how to fix toddler sleep regression…
Parents of toddlers know how difficult it can be to maintain a good sleeping routine. Sleep regression is an especially common issue that can leave parents feeling exhausted and frustrated! The good news is that sleep regression doesn’t have to be an insurmountable obstacle. With the right strategies and helpful tips, you can get your toddler back on track with a healthy and restful sleep schedule.
What Is Sleep Regression?
Sleep regression is when a child suddenly stops following their normal sleeping pattern, often waking up earlier or more frequently than usual during the night, or resisting naps during the day. It can present itself in different ways depending on your child’s age and sleeping habits. For example, some toddlers may develop a fear of the dark or start waking up multiple times in the night, while others may resist going to bed or wake up too early in the morning.
Although it can be frustrating (and exhausting!) for parents, sleep regression is actually quite common among toddlers. That’s because children are constantly growing and developing, so changes in their physical, mental, and emotional needs may affect their sleep patterns as they age.
Common Causes of Toddler Sleep Regression
There are several common causes of toddler sleep regression that you should be aware of:
Physical growth spurts are one of the most likely causes of sleep regression for toddlers. As your child grows taller, stronger, and heavier, their bodies will require more energy—which means they may need longer naps during the day or more time spent awake at night to process their new physical developments.
Emotional stress can also lead to sleep issues in toddlers. Changes such as starting daycare or bringing home a new sibling can cause extra stress for young children—which could then interfere with their ability to get sufficient rest at night. Make sure your child feels safe and secure before putting them down for naps or bedtime routines so they don’t feel overwhelmed by any sudden changes that may occur during this period of adjustment.
Colds and other illnesses may also contribute to toddler sleep regression since they often make it harder for young children to get quality rest at night due to coughing fits or nausea caused by high fevers. Be sure to take note if your toddler seems unusually tired throughout the day—it could be a sign of an underlying medical condition that needs attention from your doctor right away!
Tips for Fixing Toddler Sleep Regression
Though each individual family is unique when it comes to finding solutions for toddler sleep regression, there are several strategies you might want to consider trying out if you’re dealing with this issue:
• Develop consistent bedtime routines: Establishing consistent bedtime routines before nap time or nighttime hours helps young children learn what behaviors are expected from them when it comes time for rest—such as brushing teeth and changing into pajamas before getting into bed—so there won’t be any surprises come nightfall! Having clear expectations like these makes it easier for little ones to stay on track during all phases of childhood (especially when big milestones like bringing home a new sibling occur!).
• Create calming environments: Ensure that all elements in your child’s bedroom are designed with relaxation in mind; this means eliminating excessive stimulation such as bright colors or too many toys from the room so they won’t feel overwhelmed when trying to fall asleep at night. You should also avoid turning on TV screens before bedtime since this type of content often contains stimulating visuals which could keep kids up late into the evening instead! Keep noise levels low as well by closing windows or using white noise machines if needed—this will help create an atmosphere conducive towards peaceful restorative slumber!
