Remember the saying “Raise – raised, and forgot to wake up”? Something like this may happen in the morning with your child.
The fact is that during sleep, all processes in the body slow down and after lifting it takes some time to “swing”. Given this circumstance, lay in the morning schedule 15-20 additional minutes for a quiet awakening and leisurely fees.
In addition, children’s psychologists believe that parents should take into account the biorhythms of the baby.
Biorhythms are laid back while the baby is in the mother’s belly. They are fully manifested by the end of the first month of life of the child, and from that time it is determined when it is convenient for the toddler to wake up, eat, play, walk, etc. Thus, the biological clock is not an acquired human habit, but its feature fixed on the level
In accordance with the biorhythms of children, like adults, can be divided into “owls”, “pigeons” and “larks”. “Larks” go to bed early and wake up early, “owls” often play late in the evening, it is difficult to put them on time in bed, in the morning they wake up slowly and with difficulty. “Pigeons” easily adapt to the average daily mode. Problems with the morning rise arise from the “owls.”
In order to facilitate the transition from sleep to wakefulness to such a “sovenku” child, psychologists recommend to come up with a ritual with him to facilitate an early rise. They can be a certain sequence of pleasant for the baby action. For example, first turn on the music at a low volume, which is pleasant to the baby, then – a muffled light, then gently kiss the toddler, say gentle words, lightly massage his arms and legs.
When the owl opens its eyes, wrap it in a bathrobe, drink warm cocoa or compote, and slowly tell us about your plans for the day ahead. Fantasy and imagination will be very out of place.
Thus, you wake up the child smoothly and gradually and set it up in a working mood.
The second option is to choose together with the baby a toy that will go to bed with him and get up. Your toddler will be for her mom or dad and will also raise her in the morning.
For example, to wake up, to dress, to feed, etc. New duties involuntarily will force the toddler to wake up early and spend less time on “rocking”.
Very important for difficult waking kids mode of the day. The Soviets can play until the night, but if you look at your son and go to your daughter, you can easily catch the moment when the child becomes slightly inhibited, sleepy. This is a signal: the biological clock worked, it’s time to go to bed. Parents have a maximum of half an hour for all hygiene procedures.
If the toddler “overstated” this time, it will be difficult for him to fall asleep on time. It is also important in what mood the crumb went to bed.
Going to bed should take place in a relaxed atmosphere with an obligatory kiss for the night and other rituals familiar to the younger family member.
Ideally, the child should always fall asleep and wake up at the same time. The developed schedule should not be broken even on weekends and holidays.
But if you are still away from him, you should gradually return to the working rhythm of life.
