Tip 3: The bedroom

The actual bedroom can also promote a better night’s sleep for your child.

Your child will sleep better if their bedroom is:

  • dark, possibly with a small nightlight.
  • neither too hot nor too cold (approximately 16-18 degrees Celsius).
  • uncluttered. If your child sees toys everywhere, chances are they will want to play instead of sleep.


Don’t use the bedroom as the place your child needs to go to when punished, because this might prevent the child from seeing it as a safe space.
