Bedtime can be tough on everyone.Check out 5 Tips for an Easier Bedtime with your Kids so that everyone gets the best night sleep. Disclosure: I received the Batmobile bed free of charge from Delta Children to facilitate this post. However, My love of this product is all mine!
We all go through it, the back and forth at night with little ones. It almost become a hostage negotiation between parents and children. Trying to get your little one to fall asleep at night. Most of the time the “energy” they have can also be exhaustion. We’re also as a whole over scheduled running from one activity to another. That’s why when it comes to bed time it’s important to follow some tips to help make it easier on everyone.
So check out below 5 Tips for an Easier Bedtime with your Kids.
Set a Bedtime: Let’s face it, life happens and many times going to sleep at the same time every night can be tough. However, it’s absolutely crucial you have a bedtime for the whole family and follow it. The body needs a certain amount of sleep and setting your internal clock to that hour will be beneficial for everyone. That includes you!
Make sure your kids are getting enough sleep: Did you know kids that are ages 7-13 should be getting at least 11 hours of sleep. Anything less will create problems for your kids everyday functioning. So it’s important to make sure and factor that in when it comes to bed time.
Limit Screen Time: We all love technology and most of us spend hours on our phones before bed. Most kids like to watch that last show before bed time. But believe it or not that added screen time is actually not helping you (or them get to bed) and actually interferes with your sleep pattern. So shutting the screen off at least an hour before bed is a must. Replace that time with a good book, bed time story or coloring will help smooth over the bed time jitters.
Routine: Even the wildest of spirits can thrive on routine. Kids aren’t any different. Giving them a night time ritual or routine is a must in order to have a seamless bedtime. You’ll even begin to notice that they’ll crave it and even enjoy those little constants before bed.
Sleep Environment: Sleep environment is crucial for your kids to get the best bedtime sleep. Having PJ’s that are appropriate for the temperature, comfortable sleep temperature and most important the perfect bed, like this funBatman Batmobile Twin Bed on DeltaChildren.com

Always was a struggle trying to get the kids ready for bed. Great ideas and thanks for sharing.

I would rather deal with a child that has had a good amount of sleep every night – not only to keep them healthy and sharp at school, but also so I don’t have to deal with a crabby whiny child! That’s no fun!!
Jessica H says
No kids of my own (yet!) but I can think of a couple kiddos this could help 🙂 thanks for sharing!
Linda Manns Linneman says
It can be so hard at times to get our children to go to bed and to sleep. These are some great suggestions. I love this bed. So cute. Thank you so much for sharing. God Bless
LOVE the bed! Too bad they don’t make it for adults too in a king sized bed! lol. We kept a routine, shut off electronics hours before bedtime, etc and it helped some but our child was never a good sleeper.
Sue E says
Having a strict routine at the same time does help. I’ve found that they start yawning and rubbing their eyes around the same time every night. Of course, their baths and brushing their teeth should have already been done. Good tips!
Sleep is important and these tips makes it easier to get them to dive into bed

We are going through this with my grandkids, some great tips here.
Boy did I need to read this with my little grandson who is a twin. He has my husband’s energy level and doesn’t need a lot of sleep.

Carole D says
These are all great tips! A routine is a must!
Great suggestions and I the one to limit screen time one hour before bed really does make a difference. I find that having other restful activities are better right before bed.
great tips best to start when there baby and follow thru as they get older works great//

Deborah D says
My nephews would love that bed.
Kara Vaughan Marks says
Good tips, and that bed is the coolest! My grandson would just love that and I’m glad you pointed out that the spoiler can hold toys or books–genius.
My daughter will always do anything to put off going to bed, I think more because she doesn’t want to go to school the next day.
J Lewis says
Great tips! My boy is 13 now, but I’ll bet my girls would love a pink bat mobile bed!

Great tips!! As a homeschooling family, I find that our routine and structure mainly happens in the morning, but as the day goes on the routine seems to slack a little. Bedtime takes forever and I know I’ve got to get back on track with it for my kiddos. I love this bed! We are expecting a little boy & I am looking forward to the day we get to buy him something cool like that!
