How To Reclaim Your Bed From Your Toddler In A Weekend
音量
If your child is old enough, explain that tonight she will be sleeping all night in her own bed. Make this as positive as possible. Role play with your child, putting their toys to bed and giving them, the toys, plenty of praise for staying there. Explain to older brothers and sisters and any close neighbours that there may be some disruption for a couple of nights. If your child is still taking a day time nap, do not allow him to sleep after 3pm in the afternoon for a 7 or 8 o'clock settling time. Stock up on little rewards, such as stickers or small toys.And if at all possible, have a daytime rest yourself. You will need reserves of energy on this night.
Remember that the key to helping your child sleep lies in how she settles at the beginning of the night. For this reason it is absolutely crucial that your child settles to sleep for the night in her own bed alone and aware that you are not with her. The best way of doing this is to start an ultra consistent bed time routine. Not only will this help her to feel secure, but a familiar series of bedtime steps leading will in time help her to feel sleepy too.Put her into her bed or cot. Lean over and have a brief goodnight cuddle. Explain again gently and quietly what you are doing and then go. Leave on a very positive note.If she cries or gets out of bed, return briefly to either reassure or put her back to bed. Spend no more than 30 seconds with her. If she seems frightened, stay calm and reassuring but do not reinforce any fears by hanging around.If necessary, sit out on the landing and put her back into bed as many times as it takes. (Hence the need for vast energy reserves). Do not lock, or even close, the door if it is usually left open. If experience has shown you that she will continually chase you to the door, you are better off using a stair gate in the bedroom doorway as a temporary measure, Explain that this is, “To keep you safe.”To avoid getting into a tussle, you should leave periods of up to 10 minutes if you can before returning her to bed. If your child is in a cot and is standing up and crying, you should return calmly every 5 minutes. There is no need to go back at all when you know that she is lying down and the nature of the cry turns into a “grumble” or “complaint.”Eventually she will fall asleep and it is vital that you are not in the room when this happens. Once she has fallen asleep alone you are over the worst – so give yourself a pat on the back! Go to bed early and be mentally prepared to be up a lot in the night. If there are two of you, you might like to split the night into two shifts. Just make sure that you are fully supportive of one another and like minded in your approach.If your child wakes up and comes into your room after you have gone to bed, force yourself to get up and put her back to bed just as you did earlier in the evening. Do not relent at any stage - you will only prolong or seriously damage the learning process.
Before allowing your child to get up for the day, open the curtains or put on the lights. This will give clear signal that night time is over and it is time for the day to begin.Welcome her into your bed, but do not allow her to fall asleep there. If you do this, you will undermine all the effort you have all invested.Consolidate the work you have done by continuing the same actions. Offer her lots of loving and specific praise, “You slept in your own bed!” Be sure to give her a reward. During the day, be especially loving towards your child. Tell her what a clever girl she is.At night repeat the same routine:Put her to bed and then go, leaving on a positive noteReturn to put her back to bed as many times as it takes.Don't stay with her until she falls asleep, she must be alone in the room when this happens.It usually takes only a coupl
