It’s easier said than done but, having a good bedtime routine will improve your child’s health and wellbeing.
A bedtime routine is the predictable, regular things you and your child do in the hour or so before lights out, and before your child falls asleep. Things like eating, washing teeth and face, going to the loo, having a bath, talking to your child about their day, a hug and a kiss goodnight.
Regular bedtimes from an early age can help the quality of your child’s sleep throughout their childhood. However lack of sleep can increase the risk of a child becoming overweight which could lead to obesity, heart disease, and even cancer as they get older.
