Habits before going to bed to sleep are acquired from a very young age: bath, dinner … There are many ways to help your child relax to rest like an angel.
Children have a previous routine at the time of going to bed that they have acquired over time: bath time, dinner time, subsequent relaxation, etc. However, it is often necessary to carry out some techniques that help to relax them and make them fall asleep properly.
A very effective form of relaxation is music. Singing a babysitter to your little one or playing background music, soft and calm, will help you relax and fall asleep more easily. It is a technique that all children usually like, especially when they are young.
Playing with the imagination is something that the little ones love. Telling them a story is one of the favorite forms of relaxation prior to children’s sleep. They usually love to imagine themselves on a pirate ship, in an enchanted forest or in a princess castle. When children are older, they can read a story, a book, or a comic themselves before bedtime.

They are a form of relaxation that relieves the child of the stress generated daily. The massages help regulate and strengthen the respiratory, circulatory and gastrointestinal functions of the child. They are a way of communicating affectively with the child and provide a muscle relaxation that will induce sleep.
Having adequate lighting in the child’s room is essential to recreate a resting place to help the child sleep better. Often, children fear darkness and ask to sleep with a light on. In this case, a good solution is to have a little light that illuminates little but reassures them in this way so you can sleep without fear of the dark.
