    You need a routine, same time for for everything after dinner onwards, milk, bath, bed and read bedtime story with a slow droning voice, no picture books or excited voices, your voice gets slower with every page turned.

  2. Michaela B

    get to sleep before they do and then you wont mind when they sleep 😉
    seriously though, routine is the key, not that my children pay attention to me!

  3. mark burdon

    A routine. Regular bed times are key

  4. Anastasia Jones

    Quiet and quality time and space to get ready for bed, a bedtime story (something they know) until they get bored then change it for another favorite story. Then cuddles and kisses and say goodnight. Then its strict back to bed if they get out of bed and stick to routine. xxx

  6. Jen Russon

    leave one of your items of clothing in their room, your scent will settle them x

  7. Trudie Forde

    My best trick is to first of all stick to a routine, that is crucial. Then get them a little bedlight, turn the main light off after tucking them in, and read them a book, while they have some milk and a cookie, and then off to sleep they go:)

  8. gemma brown

    try to stick to a routine. a story just before bed and a snuggle is very soothing as long as it’s not an exciting one

  37. Johannah Carroll

    Babies love routine so try to stick to yours as much as possible. Get out objects they associate with bedtime early eg. pacifiers, bottles, teddy bears and sleepy blankets half an hour before and remove their ‘active’ toys so they begin to understand it’s soon time for beddy-byes 😉

  38. Jenny Harper

    A regular routine is the single most important factor in my house. That and a bedtime story!

  39. If your baby uses dummies at night, get a Sleepytot bunny to hold the dummies in its velcro paws so they don’t get lost and baby can find them when they fall out.

    A lot of people have said a good routine which is true, but it has to be a calm and tranquil atmosphere, don’t get them excited just before bed and I always give a warning as to when they are going. i.e 5 more minutes… A good story to set them off daydreaming is also a good thing.

    Be relaxed but firm and don’t give in to pleas for 5 more minutes. Once they realise bedtime means exactly that it will become easier

  62. Heidi Brown


  63. Ailsa

    A strict routine, we build in time for stories, unwinding and chat about the day. We have a relaxing routine (for nights its needed) where my son helps his teddy go to sleep by lying teddy on his tummy, watching him move up and down with deep breaths and then cuddling him with eyes shut and quiet to help teddy sleep.

  86. Lynda Sanderson

    Keep the routine the same, let they say what is next, make it special and based around them. Do not try to do other jobs at the same time.

  89. jason wills

    if you have a shelf full of childrens books with pictures in you say to them at bedtime the first one upstairs to the bed gets to pick the story,usuall y gets them racing you up the stairs.Then a soft light and cuddle up with a book with pictures in that they can see when you are reading does the trick to get them to sleep with about a 20 minute story.

  90. Danika Lloyd

    relaxing in a dimly lit room for an hour before bed

  91. hannonle (alison)

    The most important thing is to have a calm environment, which isn’t always easy with tired cranky children.

  92. Sarah Bates

    Countdown after a bath. I’m always telling my boys 1 hour till bed, 30 mins till bed, 10 mins till bed. Story. Bed. Job done. They know it’s coming and are happy to go to sleep.

  93. nice and quiet and a bedtime story does it for me

  94. jodie harvey

    stay relaxed and calm, low soothing tone and dimmed lights 🙂


    dont feel pressure of making your routine perfect , theres many mums out there that make others feel that they arnt good enough but at the end of the day gut instinct and doing what works best for u is most important for you and your child.

  96. Gemma Snell

    we have a routine that we hardly break, tea, bath, snuggles on sofa, hot milk, story and bed. with our kisses routine which goes cheek, cheek, forehead nose 🙂

  97. Kelly Brooks

    Keeping to the same routine every night and taknig 30 mins to wind down before bed works for my two.

  98. israr baig

    Don’t go to sleep over thinking things if you do your mind will be working while u want to relax and you will be turning all nite and waking up though out.

    So an hour before stop thinking and relax and THEN go to bed

    dont make bedtime routine too complicated a story and a cuddle and a little bedtime rhyme such as night night sleep tight. that way if your away from home you can still keep things familiar.

  113. Jessica

    My best bedtime tip is , favourite teddy, a couple of short stories , a nice warm bottle of milk and a goodnight song and kiss.

  114. Rachel M

    Cuddle and a good story just before bed always does the trick.

  125. sharon

    sticking to a routine works. Bathtime, story and cuddles.

  126. Vikki Sanderson

    Work out the routine and stick to it – personally I’ve found this works – dinner, half hour/an hour crazy play to tire them out, then some TV time, then have a wash/shower/bath and into pjs, cup of warm milk, teeth brushed, into bed and tucked in, followed by story time, a kiss and hug and then lights out.

  127. Catherine McAlinden

    Routines are fantastic, but be prepared to make adjustments. Watching out for signs of tiredness and bringing bed time forward. Or skipping the bath if they just need to sleep.

  128. lyn burgess

    Try to keep to a routine, and keep everything calm and relaxed. A bath followed by pyjamas, milk, a book, teeth cleaning, cuddle and snuggle down in bed with some soft music.

    I have a set routine which we dare not stray from, Bath,milk,story teeth then bed, we use a blackout blind and a dim nightlight which all help her fall asleep within minutes.

  144. Clare B.

    Don’t use being sent to bed as a threat for punishing bad behaviour. If bed time is a punishment then children won’t want to go to bed. No one likes to be punished.

  145. Shona Fleming

    We have the same routine every night, bath, some hot milk and then upstairs to be for a story, works wonders and both my boys sleep for 12 hours every night.

  146. abigail edkins

  150. Tina Hewitt

  151. Kevin Bloomfield

    Bedtime means bedtime! No fiddling about for half an hour. Otherwise the fiddling about will get longer and longer as the child gets older!

  152. simone lee


  153. Charlotte

    Calm everything down an hour before bed. Get into a routine, bath, bedtime story, lights out. Relax!

  154. Alana Walker

    Get them into a routine from a very young age. It makes things a lot easier.x

  155. karbar53@hotmail.com

    Bath Book Bed

  156. Hilda Hazel Wright

    Calming everything right down, over-excited children don’t want to sleep! Bath time or reading is great, nice quiet time!

  157. Elizabeth Johnson

    White noise works brilliantly for babies, we leave the radio on in the baby’s bedroom playing white noise static – it blocks out any outside noise from our other kids and is similar to the sounds the baby would have heard in the womb.

  158. k dunn

    read a book and just chill and keep to the routine!

  159. Chris Toulson

    Slowly dim the lights in all rooms to get the atmosphere ready

  160. Kathleen marsden

    Wherever you are let it always be you who puts them to bed . Have the Same routine and let them know that you love them by being the last one to kiss them goodnight

  161. Kelly L

    Keep a routine of going to bed at the same time each night and always snuggle up with a bedtime story.

  162. fern blackmore

    make sure the child knows bed is for sleeping! if they see their bed as somewhere to play then they wont be ready to sleep when they go in it, during the day they can read quietly in bed but not playing with active toys and jumping around. and as everyone else has said routine & stick to it as much as possible, but DONT stress about bedtime! it will make the kid play up more! keep it light & easy so little ones are relaxed and not tense. my 3 year old sleeps 7pm until 8.30am and has done from a year old 😀


    a good bedtime routine, and blackout blinds!

  164. Dean Willoughby

    Routine, early to bed on school nights and a bed time story. Still working 10 years on.

  165. STOP making a fuss!!!

  166. Rachael Marsden

    Stick to a routine from very early on, make bedtime a nice thing that we look forward to

  167. Kelly Hooper

  168. Sallyanne Gooch

    Routine. Bath, bottle and bed.

  172. siobhan davis

    No tv, bath, bedtime story and cuddles always say you love your children before bed

  173. Lauren Hamilton

    Keep the routine for bedtime the same every night, my little girl is only 8 months old but she knows that once she has had a bath, bottle and a bedtime story that it is time to sleep and she goes to bed no problem every night 🙂 x

  174. claire

    don’t have toys in the bedroom. try to make it as neutral and calm as possible

  175. ragan bennett

    Routine is the key and perseverance 🙂

  176. Lay the baby down gently (dropping them now would be a big mistake) with a gentle shhhh, (resist the urge to scream please go to sleep, please, I haven’t sleep all week). Next tiptoe out of the room (mind that creaking floorboard that ruined last night’s best attempts)and then carefully close that door. Mission accomplished – go pour yourself a nice, big glass of wine – you deserve it.

  177. Anna

    I have always stayed with my children and read to them. When they were babies I read whatever book I was reading out loud and the sound of my voice and my presence calmed them. A warm Lavender bath helped one of my children.

  178. Rebecca Miller

    Absolutely could not live without a blackout blind!

  179. Helen Allan

    Stick to the same nightly routine of bath, feed, cuddles and bed. Keep everything relaxed and soothing. Dim lighting helps too. The main thing is to make sure night time if very different to day and they soon get the idea.

  180. Michelle Evans

    I used to lie with my youngest on the bed with a night light and gently sing, as nights went on i moved further along bed and eventually on to a chair until eventually I was out of the room, taking my singing quietly to a humming and eventually nothing, left night light on for a couple of nights and never had problem since,

  181. Rebecca

    Bath,Milk & Disney Film To Fall Asleep to 🙂

    Calm half hour before bed, a bath and then a story. Tuck them in and kiss them goodnight. The trick is then not to go back …

    Sticking to a bedtime routine is good. I always have a small snack and a warm drink at bedtime. Then some quiet time with a short story while their in bed.

    routine as early on as possible. A bath, story, warm milk and cuddle time. We had no problems with our grandson as he always knew when it was bed time and as long as we stuck to the routine there was never any fuss.

    Have the same routine every night, so the chid knows when its about to be bedtime. At the same time, make it enjoyable and spend quality time including interacting with a bedtime story.

    Stick to a routine to make a child feel secure, have a quiet time before bed time and slowly wind a child down, end the routine with a story a tuck in and a kiss. My kids just see bed time as a normal thing as its just part of a normal routine with tight boundaries and there is never a struggle.

    Having a good bedtime routine is my best tip. I always follow the same routine with my two boys. Bath, followed by some warm milk and a light snack then I give them a story, then it’s upstairs to brush their teeth then bed. It works a treat every night.

    Get a routine; the sooner you have a routine the better, the LO will get used to it and expect bed time and know it’s bed time. And ALWAYS read a story.
