Having trouble getting your toddler to sleep?
We’ve all been there! This is my second go ’round with toddler sleep and I’m getting through it while battling baby sleep with my newborn at the same time.
Some nights are tougher than others, but we’ve definitely found that there are some things that help us get on the winning side of battling with our toddler to get some sleep.
How do I get my toddler to stay asleep at night?
Using sleep aids is one way to help your toddler stay asleep through the night.
A lot of times our toddlers are capable of sleeping through the night. They just need a little help to get to sleep and stay asleep.
How can I help my toddler with bed wetting?
Are you co-sleeping? Does your toddler wake up in the middle of the night with a wet bed?
Even though we are potty training our daughter we still are using diapers for bed time.
Overnight diapers don’t always protect her through the night without leaks though.
With a newborn too we are in survival mode. Which means that sometimes she co-sleeps with us or gets out of bed in the middle of the night to spend the rest of the night with mom and dad.
I can’t tell you how many nights I’ve woken up with an unexpected warm and wet feeling next to me.
Thank goodness for Sposie diaper booster pads. You just put them in their diaper for double the protection and a dry night with no leaks.
No leaks means more sleep for mom, dad, and toddler! Less laundry too. That’s a win for me!
They have definitely improved our family wellness because I have more time and energy to take care of our newborn at night without having to worry about taking care of any toddler leaks.
Sposie diaper pads are available at Walmart, Target, and Amazon.
Follow a Schedule
Make a schedule for your toddler to go to bed at the same time every night.
I’ve noticed if our kids don’t keep the same bedtime they get overtired and it becomes harder to put them to bed. After a certain time they just can’t shut down.
With a schedule they learn to expect bedtime and be ready to turn off at that time every night.
Toddler Books and Songs
Reading fun toddler books and singing is a great way to help them go to sleep! They love bonding time cuddled up with their parents.
Every night we read a stack of stories together and sing a few songs. My kids like to take turns reading to me and then I will read to them. Most of the time this puts them right to sleep.
One of my biggest life savers is white noise. You don’t even need a white noise machine to get it.
Sometimes I will just find some white noise on my phone to put on or turn on a noisy fan.
This background noise not only help my toddler to fall asleep, but it helps her stay asleep!
I don’t know about your toddler, but mine likes to cuddle.
Having a stuffed animal or soft blanket to hold helps her feel more secure to fall asleep in her bed!
Don’t give up on getting a good night sleep with your toddler. There are so many different things you can try and if one doesn’t work another will. Sometimes a combination of things helps.
Once you get into your routine things get easier!
