They're little bundles of energy – climbing, running, jumping – our active kids keep us on our toes! But come bedtime, that energy can make winding down a bit of a challenge. But don't worry, there are ways to help your little night ninja transition from superhero to sleepyhead.

Create a bedtime routine that helps your little one wind down for the night:

  • Power down early: Limit screen time, especially in the hour before bed. The blue light emitted from electronic devices can interfere with sleep patterns.
  • Dim the lights: Create a calming atmosphere by dimming the lights in the hour leading up to bedtime. This helps signal to your child's body that it's time to wind down.
  • Bath time bliss: A warm bath can be a lovely way to help your child relax before bed. Add calming essential oils like lavender or chamomile for an extra soothing effect.
  • Story time magic: Cuddle up with your child and read a calming bedtime story. The gentle rhythm of storytelling can be a great way to signal that it's time for sleep.
  • Quiet activities: Before bed, opt for quiet activities like colouring, listening to calming music, or putting together puzzles.
  • Nighttime routine: Create a consistent bedtime routine that you follow every night. This predictability helps your child know what to expect and signals to their bodies that it's time to prepare for sleep.
  • Soothing night time kids supplement: We understand the importance of a good night's sleep for growing bodies and minds. That's why we developed Red Seal Kids Sleep Melties. These delicious, melt on your tongue supplements are formulated with calming Marine Magnesium which can help support a restful night's sleep, soothe muscles after a busy day, and gently calm busy minds and bodies.

By incorporating these tips and considering a gentle sleep aid like Red Seal Kids Sleep Melties, you can help your active child wind down for a restful night's sleep. Remember, a good night's sleep is essential for their growth, development, and superhero adventures the next day!
