Your child, although growing fast has some fears as well. Whether or not your child sleeps in your master bedroom is a personal decision. Still, you need to ensure that your 3 year old is comfortable as well independent enough to sleep on their own. After all, they will be going off to sleep earlier than you do and in all possibilities, may have their own struggles with some bedtime issues.
What you need to know
Most kids happen to experience bedtime blues, where they may be scared, may cry or seem way too active for bed. And sometimes, even the bedtime routines or narrating stories don’t help. So, how should you handle those bedtime blues with your little one?
For starters, you can create a routine where they don’t get screen time, like television, phone or laptop for at least an hour before bed. That’s because the colors and activities on the screen can make them too active. You can even soft play music to encourage self-soothing in the child. If your child sleeps in a different room and needs a nightlight, prefer a dim color or a red hue, because the brain is sensitive to this color.
What you need to do
Also, if your child is experiencing behavioral problems, consider taking a look at their routine- they might not be getting enough sleep time or they may be waking up too early in the morning. If that’s the case, you need to change the routine. Similarly, check their beds and mattress to make sure that they are comfortable.
