Sleeping habits of your tot when she is between twelve to eighteen months:
Even in this stage your tot is too little and she needs lots of sleep as in the previous stage. Until she celebrates her 2nd birthday she needs to sleep for fourteen hours a day and eleven of that must be at night. Later, the child takes the rest in the form of nap, of course, the child needs 2 naps when she is twelve months, however, when the child reaches eighteen months she gets prepared to take 1 1/2 hours to 3 hours snooze during the day time and she will continue this until she reaches five or four years. This change gives some short of trouble. Experts believe that blinking of 1 nap and 2 nap days depends on the period up to which she snoozes at night. Furthermore, you could set your child little bit earlier on the 1 nap day.
What is the way to develop healthy habits?
Perhaps, there is no standard form to help the child to get into a fine sleep habit at this stage; you could hunt for recent issues like bedtime confrontation to give you an idea about sometime between eighteen months and her third birthday. Keep on practicing the plan that you practiced when she was six months old, along with:
Following an every night bedtime ritual:
If the standard bedtime routine is followed your babe will get prepared for sleep easily. Supposing if she needs to do some extra work to get rid of the excess energy, never mind to let her run or play before getting her into the practice of something that gives her calm like playing a quite game, bedtime story or bath. It is good to handle the same procedure all the nights even when you are not at home.
Be attached to reliable daily agenda along with nap and bed times:
If your tot could eat, play, nap and get ready to bed at the regular schedule, every day, you won’t be having any trouble in getting her asleep.
Be sure that your tot is able to sleep on her own.
You must remember the importance of your kid to get into sleep on her own daily. It is not good to depend on nursing, rocking or listening to song. However, if she gets used to it then it will be very difficult for her to settle down on her own.
At this stage child finds difficulty to get into sleep on their own and they wake up often during night. The cause at the back of these problems is due to the change of their stage, particularly, walking. Your lovable will be more exited and she wants to practice his skills continuously even at the bedtime.
