The below video will share some tips with you that should help you find new ways to encourage your child sleeping. Some really surprised me so do give it a watch. It is all about how your 5 senses can help a child get to sleep, plus a sixth sense, common sense, and a special pillow called Dream Pillow.

There are also lots of great tips in this post by a fellow blogger. I know I will be trying out some of these tips when Ben struggles to sleep. He is getting a bit better now he is a teenager though. That’s part of being a teenager I guess, along with the Kevin attitude and eating so much!

Do you struggle to get to sleep with anxiety? I sometimes do so those are all tips I will be giving a try myself.

  1. I usually get around 7 hours of sleep per night. I find a cool bedroom helps me sleep and one foot out of the bed helps too, if the room is too warm I end up tossing and turning all night.

  2. I have issues with intense itching, so although I’m in bed for at least 8 hours, I’m woken at least twice a night

  3. Varies. I think gradually winding down in the evening. By that I mean allowing lights to dim and noise be reduced, become peaceful, restful in preparation for settling to bed and sleep. Also regularly having an evening snack before bedtime, for me that is toast.

    I was a very good sleeper when young. Years of Shift work and chronic pain condition are possible reasons / factors in varied sleeping times, amount and quality now.

  4. I sleep 7-8 hours every night, rarely having a problem. I’m one of the lucky ones I think. A bedtime routine is a good way to wind down

  5. For me, a couple of drops of lavender oil on the corner of my pillow at night helps me sleep. I also use a lavender hand cream as I sleep with my hands under my face, so it’s extras cent on my hands to fall asleep to

  6. I sleep 8-10 hours myself, but my daughter needs help she only sleeps 3-4 hours and needs all the help that she can get

  7. I usually get between 6 and 8 hours and my boy Charlie 3 still shares my bed so its usually very interrupted

  8. I really struggle to sleep and often go a full night without any sleep at all. The only trouble I have is that as it nears time to get up, I finally get tired and could happily turn over and drop off to sleep

  9. I’m not a very good sleeper and average about 5 hours every night.
    I have found that limiting my screen time for a few hours before bedtime helps me sleep slightly better.

  10. around 6-7 hours I listen to brown noise helps block out other noises that keep me awake at night πŸ™‚

  11. My sleep varies, some nights I get 7-8, some nights I might only get 2 or none at all (I really hate those days). I find avoiding screens a couple of hours before bed, reading and unwinding as well as using a sleep spray do help me settle more though.

  12. I am looking for information as my toddler is 2 and I want to start getting him into his own bed after Christmas as in a 2 bedroom flat my 16 yr old has one room and at the minute my toddler and I share but after Xmas I’m going to turn it into his room so any comforts, ideas, items and information would be appreciated I think it’s going to be hard ,

  13. I have MS, so left to my own devices I can sleep for up to 22 hours! But, it’s a real waste of a life, and not as much fun as people may think πŸ˜‰ I usually have to get around 9 hours to sorta get by

  14. I’m not a good sleeper, i average about 3 to 5 hours a night, ive tried everything from sleeping tablets, to opening windows, so now ive given up

  15. i go to bed about 11 and always wake up at 6, but i have usually woken several times during the night – physical exercise/tiring myself out helps me too sleep a bit longer x

  16. I sleep between 7 to 9 hours every night, but I’m sure that will change in a few months when my baby is here. I find keeping a routine before bed helps to to get me to sleep quickly.

  17. My sleep patterns are all over the place at the moment, sometimes I can be wide awake at 3.30am other days 5.30am. I’m trying a pillow mist at the moment to see if that helps.

  18. I sleep about 7 and half hours but I do feel when I have a cup of hot milk makes me sleep a lot better (without waking up)

  19. I sleep about 5 hours a night. Ocassionally I manage to get a catch-up lie-in. I have tried many things from pillow sprays to warm milk with varying results. I usually just read though till my eyes start to close.

  20. Not many unfortunately πŸ™ I really struggle, I have bad anxiety so my mind is always on overdrive. I find hypnosis apps work well getting me to sleep but they don’t help with the broken sleep

  21. Not enough! On average around 6 hours of broken sleep, I’ve tried everything and not found anything that helps unfortunately

  22. Love the idea of the six senses & I have ordered a sleep pillow for my youngest grandson, hoping to win one for my other grandchild who had night terrors, such an amazing invention, fantastic giveaway

  23. I usually sleep between 8-9 hours a night. Anything less and I can’t function. I have no trouble getting to sleep but if I did I would recommend a hot bath and drink before bed.
