The holidays are a wonderful time of year, but they can also be incredibly stressful. For parents of young children, finding ways to keep their little ones calm and sleeping during the busy holiday season can be a challenge. But fear not! We've compiled a list of five secret tips that will help your baby sleep soundly during the holiday madness.
1. Keep a consistent bedtime routine.
Babies and young children thrive on routine, and the holidays can throw that routine out the window. To help your little one stay calm and sleep well, try to stick to their regular bedtime routine as much as possible. This might mean putting them to bed at the same time every night, reading them a bedtime story, or giving them a relaxing bath or baby massage.
2. Create a sleep-friendly environment.
A dark, cool, and quiet bedroom is essential for a good night's sleep. During the holidays, our homes can become overrun with decorations, lights, and noise. To create a sleep-friendly environment for your baby, consider using a Red LED light and then block out any unwanted light, and investing in a pink noise machine to help drown out any festivity distractions. (Both are featured of the Glow Dreaming!)
3. Use calming scents.
Aromatherapy can be a powerful tool for promoting relaxation and sleep. Our Glow Lullaby oil is a blend of organic essential oils specifically designed to help babies and young children sleep. Simply add a few drops to a diffuser or to your baby's bedding to create a calming, sleep-inducing atmosphere.
4. Take advantage of nap time.
Nap time is not just for babies - it's for parents too! The holidays can be exhausting and taking a few minutes to rest and recharge during the day can help you stay calm and focused. Encourage your little one to take regular naps and use that time to relax and recharge yourself.
