How to teach a child to fall asleep independently – 3 tips, preschoolers

I have a wonderful daughter. She is 4 years old. From the age of 2 years we gradually taught our daughter to fall asleep in her room. This process was not as easy as it seemed to me.

My daughter did not want to fall asleep on her own. And no persuasion, songs and fairy tales helped her fall asleep. She was naughty and whimpering. Although there were moments when she quite quickly fell asleep. And I decided to observe.

I noticed that my daughter falls asleep better if she is full. Therefore, dinner was a little later than usual, about 2 hours before bedtime. If the baby before bed asked for something to eat, then I did not refuse.

I also believe that there should be a bedtime ritual. We have this – to bathe, clean our teeth, remove toys, put all the dolls, bears and elephants to sleep, and only then go to bed. The daughter feels responsibility, and only after fulfilling all her obligations, she peacefully falls asleep. And if I read a book to her before going to bed, then the process of falling asleep goes faster. The main thing is to choose a not too emotional fairy tale.

Also, my daughter and I agreed that if something bothers her, she tells me about it. The child does not hesitate to share his feelings with me, we discuss this, and I always help her get rid of anxiety. So my little girl is absolutely calm emotionally in the evening.

My baby has a favorite toy – a pink teddy bear. She always puts it next to her. My daughter is sure that this bear will not fall asleep until she falls asleep herself.

Sometimes she says that it’s time for the bunny to sleep, and therefore she also goes to her room. My husband and I are very happy that the child becomes independent and develops a sense of responsibility for others.


Plans for tomorrow

Every evening we remember the past day and plan the next one. Usually the child can be interested in some kind of hobby the next day.

My daughter then falls asleep in anticipation of new emotions. After all, the baby thinks that the faster she falls asleep, the sooner the morning of the next day will come, and we will realize our plans.

To teach my daughter to fall asleep myself, I had to show patience, tenderness, perseverance and consistency.

Dear girls, tell me, at what age did your children start falling asleep on their own?
