1 year and 9 month old baby: is your child sleeping badly?

Pediatrician explains how to perform the ritual for a good night’s sleep

You may have noticed that your child loves to repeat his actions and the actions of other adults around him. This habit happens since the first months of his life, when he was able to imitate a wink, his mouth pouting or even showing his tongue.

Pediatrician at Hospital Santa Catarina Glaúcia Finoti explains that this attitude also extends to some routine activities such as the desire to sweep the kitchen, wash the dishes or stir the food being prepared.

All attitudes are part of your child’s development process and you can take advantage of this to include your child in the routine activities of the house so that he begins to store his toys or shoes, for example.

According to the pediatrician, the best way to teach is by giving examples, following him the first times he goes to perform the activities. In addition, Gláucia states that it is important to always talk to the child, explaining the importance of these attitudes for the family dynamics.

After doing these tasks together a few times, you can risk leaving it to yourself, correcting only if necessary. And of course, whenever he does it right, don’t forget to praise him as a positive reinforcement of such an attitude.

At this age some children already begin to warn when they are going to poop or pee. “The ideal age to start the educational process varies from child to child. Some between 18 and 24 months are already showing signs that they are ready, others are not ready until they are two and a half years old,” explains the pediatrician.

Sphincter control is a very important milestone in the child’s development, but not all children are able to identify pee and poop early.

At this age, some children may have difficulty sleeping. As recommended by the pediatrician, the routine for a peaceful sleep should be established for children as early as possible.

It is important that, at dusk, the movement of the house is modified. Reducing the lighting and sounds of the environment is essential to maintaining a more serene home. “You can also introduce what we call a” ritual for a good night’s sleep “that should be done daily,” says Gláucia.

For the ritual, the child must first be fed and then take a bath. This order can be changed according to the family’s own routine. Then she is placed on your bed. At this point, it is important for parents to explain to the child that it is time for bed.

Telling a story, listening to soft music or having a massage can help your child sleep more relaxed. Stimulation with television, computer or light on should be avoided, which can reduce the child’s sleep quality.
