5 ways to put your baby to sleep during the day

1. Look at the situation through the eyes of a child. Imagine: the middle of the day, your favorite dolls or cars went on an interesting journey, you are all in the game, every detail is important, and suddenly mom comes and says: “Then you play, now it’s time to sleep!” The child doesn’t mind sleeping as much as breaking his reality and interrupting the game. Try first to join the game of the baby, and then weave into her story the need for rest.

It is possible to offer a toddler to put a doll to sleep or to take her to bed with her. If the doll begins to act up (voiced by an adult), ask the child (already from his role as a mother) to help her fall asleep.

Discuss what needs to be done to make the doll fall asleep.

2. “Let’s just lie down.” If the child is not particularly busy with anything, but actively objects to sleep, set the rule: “Now is the time of rest and silence.” Recognize the child’s feelings: “You don’t feel like sleeping at all,” then suggest an alternative: “You can just lie quietly even with open eyes or close your eyes and dream about something instead of sleep.”

At the same time it would be good to close the curtains.

3. Mode and rituals. No matter how trite it may sound, but the regime is useful for children.

It is much easier for them to adhere to clear boundaries that give a feeling of support and firmness of the world than to adapt each time to new moods and wishes of parents. The mode forms a habit, a reflex, and in due time the eyes themselves begin to stick together.

If a child attends kindergarten, it is better, even on weekends, to wake him up in the morning and put him to bed during the day and in the evening at least at about the same time as on weekdays. At bedtime, something pleasant, “ritual” can occur.

For example, my son had a small bottle of milk drink and stroking his back.

4. Turn off the cartoons! In addition to the desires or unwillingness of the child and the parent, there are biological laws of the functioning of the brain.

Evolution is a much slower thing than technical progress. Therefore, our brain in matters of sleep / wakefulness is still focused on light-darkness and developed habits, and not on the convenience of the working day.

When a child fixes his gaze on the screen, a bright light spot with rapidly changing pictures, the brain receives a signal that it is a sunny day and it is necessary to have fun and rejoice, but never sleep. Therefore, this advice is more about what NOT to do.

And it concerns both day and night sleep. All cartoons – no later than 40 minutes before bedtime.

5. Lie down to sleep yourself. The best way to explain something is to show it.

Again we recall the fact that in many issues (biological processes, emotions, protective functions), our brain is at the stage of a caveman. The best way for a cub to survive is to follow an adult and do what he does.

Imitation is in our blood: there are the same berries and roots, to avoid what the parent avoids, as well as everything new, not to go far. So, when everyone in the cave went to bed, you must do the same.

By the way, this very cave can be played, with curtains over the windows and the whole tribe (consisting of mother and child), having gone to rest.
