How long should a bedtime ritual last?

12_idees_de_rituel_de_coucherThe creation of an environment favorable to bedtime starts about 1h prior to putting the child asleep.

The bedtime itself lasts ideally 15 to 20 minutes but depending on the level of anxiety of the child it may take more or less time.

It is important to take the time necessary to reassure your child in order for him to fall asleep quietly without getting enrolled in the game where he demands more hugs, more water, more kisses, more reading…otherwise he might call upon you too often for trouble sleeping and that is not what you are aiming for.
