Why a good bedtime routine matter
Many children are having a hard time falling asleep. Children today have to deal with many impressions throughout their day and have great access to information. This means that they in general sleep one hour less than we did 25 years ago when we were kids.
Bedtime routines are key
A study with 10,085 mothers from 14 countries has shown that children sleep better when they have a nightly bedtime routine!
“The study found that children with a consistent bedtime routine had better sleep outcomes, including earlier bedtimes, shorter amount of time in bed before falling asleep, reduced night wakings, and increased sleep duration. Children with a bedtime routine every night slept for an average of more than an hour longer per night than children who never had a bedtime routine. Institution of a regular bedtime routine also was associated with decreased sleep problems and daytime behavior problems, as perceived by mothers.”
“Creating a bedtime routine for a child is a simple step that every family can do,” said principal investigator and lead author Jodi Mindell, PhD, professor of psychology at Saint Joseph’s University and associate director of the Sleep Center at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. “It can pay off to not only make bedtime easier, but also that a child is likely to sleep better throughout the entire night.”

Positive bedtime routines
The study also found that the younger that the routine is started, the better the child is likely to sleep and that for each additional night that a family is able to institute a bedtime routine the effect on the child’s sleep improves. The authors recommend calming activities preceding bedtime.
“Positive bedtime routines involve the institution of a set sequence of pleasurable and calming activities preceding a child’s bedtime. The goal is to establish a behavioral chain leading up to sleep onset. Activities may include giving your child a soothing bath, brushing teeth and reading a bedtime story.”
