The bedtime is not always easy with a toddler around 2 years old. Afraid to find yourself alone or darkness, crying ... how to reassure him? Answer with "I raise my child" Laurence Pernoud.

  • Emeline's question: "My daughter, Clara, who is two and a half years old, is afraid of being alone at night in bed." At night, when she wakes up, she screams saying "Clara alone." I do not know how to reassure her, her daddy or I spend half of the night next to her holding her hand until she falls asleep, do you have any tips for us because we do not know what to do? "
  • Around 2 years - 2 years and a half, fears are common among children - even the most intrepid: fear of night, darkness, certain noises, etc. It is necessary that, little by little, Clara learn to sleep alone and not with his mother or his father. Have you tried the "classic" ways that help young children fall asleep and be separated from their parents for the night: a night light, the door ajar, a little story? The rituals that are repeated every night in the same way reassure the child because they give him the assurance that everything will be the same awakening.
  • The question of Guillemette "Our son Oscar is almost 2 years old and bedtime is very difficult, and when his dad or I leave the room, he begins to scream, but we have instituted rituals that he likes: a story, a little "But nothing is done, including our attempts to reassure him, to talk to him, every night he cries, would you have a suggestion to help us get out of this situation?"
  • Sleep disorders are common in children between 12 and 24 months because they coincide with the acquisition of new skills, walking, language. The personality of the child asserts itself, the interactions with the parents evolve. There is, unfortunately, no quick fix. You could try to finish the rituals by slowly becoming dark because it is a key factor in falling asleep: you sing one or two lullabies in the dark, before leaving the room slowly. If it is necessary for you to come back, you keep the light off, speaking in a low voice, without taking Oscar in your arms, and then you leave. It does not always work the first night, but if you repeat this type of ritual, it will eventually pay off.
