Hi, my name is Christina, and this is helpful hints for a sleep deprived toddler. It can be difficult to know how to help your sleep deprived toddler but having their comfort items handy and being willing to change up how you do things is a good place to start. If your child needs help going to sleep, it's important to know their personality. Whether you are the type of person to have a strict routine in your home or not, knowing what's going to calm them down can be super helpful, whether it's turning on a movie for a few minutes before bedtime or going and laying down with them in their bed, these can be ways to help calm them down to the point where they are willing to go to sleep. For some children the best way to get them to go to sleep, is to just start in their regular routine, maybe it's taking a quick bath or laying down and reading a pile of books or just laying there and going to sleep with them. These are things that some children find very comforting. Other children would prefer to lay on the sofa with you, watch a TV, whatever it is that's going to help them even if it's very much out of the norm, being willing to listen to them is really important when they are distressed. When you have a sleep deprived toddler, it can be tempting to try and stick to your normal routine but it's most important that you hear your child and engage with them in a way that makes them feel comforted. Thanks for watching.
