Sleep rituals

Children need time to calm down and prepare for sleep. Having a consistent bedtime routine can be useful in giving the child cues that sleep time is coming. There are likely things that you do each night before bed, such as putting on pajamas, brushing teeth, reading bedtime story, nursing or rocking, and so on.

Try to do those things in the same order to help your child understand what is coming next and learn to calm down through that process.
