Health Tip: Naptime for Toddlers

(HealthDay News) -- It's important to teach your toddler healthy sleep habits, experts say.

The American Academy of Pediatrics offers these suggestions to help your toddler get a good night's sleep:

  • Create a bedtime schedule based on when your child seems to become sleepy.
  • Develop a soothing routine of a bath, stories and some quiet time.
  • If you get a late start and want to keep your toddler's bedtime on track, prepared a shorter version of the daily routine.
  • Be consistent, to help your child know what to expect.
  • Make sure your child is comfortable and has a favorite comfort item ( for example, a blanket or stuffed animal) in bed.
