About this article
Putting your two-year-old to sleep can sometimes seem to be a daunting task, but with the right routine they should start sleeping without too much fuss. Try to have an hour of shut-down time before bed, where you turn off the lights and turn off the TV. This will help your child gradually relax and get the mood for sleep. Brush your teeth and have them changed to pajamas about the same time each night. That way, they will end up in a natural routine and it will be easier for them to drive off. You can also read a story or sing a nursery rhyme for your child to help them relax before bed. Then, stuff them with their favorite toy or blanket and say hello.
