  • - Hey guys!

  • Jordan Page from Millennial Moms here.

  • How's it goin'?!

  • I am here to do a video on something

  • that all of us moms can relate to in one way or another,

  • I have no doubt.

  • Dun dun dun!

  • Napping!

  • As you know, I've got five kids six and under.

  • Believe it or not,

  • my kids nap every single day at the exact same time.

  • In fact, if my six year old hadn't just started first grade,

  • he would still be napping,

  • and still takes naps on the weekends at least.

  • So I thought I would just share with you

  • some of my tips on how to get your kids to sleep.

  • But before I get into my secrets,

  • don't forget to subscribe,

  • and give this video a big thumbs up.

  • Okay, let's do it!

  • My first tip for getting your kids to sleep,

  • is you've got to figure out a routine.

  • If you're trying to get your kids to sleep

  • at a different time every night,

  • or nap whenever you can, whenever that is,

  • it's not going to happen.

  • When I was sleep training my first child,

  • because he was a terrible sleeper,

  • because I had him on no form of schedule.

  • I literally typed it on a computer,

  • and stuck it in every room in the house.

  • When his nap times were, when his bedtime was,

  • and when he was supposed to be awake and playing

  • and burning off energy.

  • Protect nap time.

  • Block it out in your calendar as if you had an appointment.

  • It takes 21 days to make or break a habit.

  • So you need to do a strict routine for at least a month,

  • and then you can veer off the schedule here and there

  • without completely derailing everything you just did.

  • One of my tricks is to use white noise.

  • You guys have heard of Pavlov's dogs,

  • your body and mind physically respond to cues.

  • So my kids minds and bodies physically respond to the fact

  • that when their white noise turns on,

  • it is time to decompress, relax, and go to sleep.

  • Which brings me to my next point

  • which is there is such thing as too quiet.

  • With my first baby, sign on the door, shh!

  • Don't talk!

  • Don't come over!

  • Don't call me!

  • Don't breathe.

  • And wouldn't you know, any noise wakes him up, and he is up.

  • With my other kids,

  • I get them used to sleeping

  • in the middle of chaos and noise.

  • Because it's next to impossible

  • for your house to be perfectly silent

  • when you've got more than one kid around.

  • Another tip is to have special things

  • that are for sleeping only.

  • Whether it's a special binky, a special blanket,

  • a special stuffed animal,

  • they only get that thing when sleeping.

  • I see so many moms carrying their kid's favorite blanket

  • and lovey all throughout the store,

  • at DisneyLand, all around, no.

  • Make it special

  • and then it's almost like a reward or treat for them,

  • rather than a punishment.

  • (pretend snoring)

  • Oh!

  • Sorry, okay.

  • Where was I?

  • Another tip of mine is that rooms are for sleeping,

  • not for playing.

  • We have a bed, a dresser,

  • um, that's pretty much it.

  • Oh yeah, and books.

  • When we were in our two-bedroom town home,

  • we kept all the tools in storage ottomans and compartments

  • in our living room.

  • And now we actually have a playroom in the basement.

  • Every toy we own goes down there.

  • A lot of people ask me,

  • "Wait a second, so your six 1/2 year old still naps?

  • "Uh, does he go to sleep at like midnight?"

  • Valid question.

  • My answer is, no.

  • Again it's just mostly the fact

  • that their bodies are trained,

  • but you also want to make sure

  • not to be napping them too late.

  • We try to make sure that they are down by one or 1:30.

  • If we're not home by 2:30 or 3, naps are not gonna happen.

  • We skip naps and we put them to bed at 6:00 pm,

  • an hour earlier than usual.

  • If you have a kid that just doesn't need as much sleep

  • as the other kids.

  • That's okay, still go through the routine,

  • protect that time, and maybe you just call it quiet time

  • instead of nap time.

  • They read books, they work on their homework,

  • they play with Legos, they do quiet activities,

  • and they do not come out until quiet time is done.

  • So that way the kids who do nap aren't disturbed,

  • and, hey mom, gives you a little brain break,

  • and a chance to get a few things done

  • in the middle of the day.

  • Yeah, high five on that!

  • Another trick is to make sure every room has a clock

  • or a stoplight clock.

  • My older kids, they have a digital clock in their room.

  • For my younger kids, I've used stoplight clocks.

  • If the light is red, they stay in bed,

  • if the light is green, you can be seen.

  • Full disclosure though,

  • we've been through three of those stoplight clocks,

  • and they've all broken, and they are way overpriced.

  • So if anyone knows of anything cheaper

  • than the one option on Amazon, will you let me know below?

  • 'Cause we are in the market for a new one, again.

  • And my last tip is actually for you moms.

  • And that is to make sure that you're using nap time

  • in a productive way.

  • Write down your to do list for the day,

  • and be sure to preserve things for nap time

  • that are hard to do when your kids are awake.

  • And then as soon as your kids wake up,

  • tune out the to do list and just go back to mom time.

  • It will make you more productive

  • and it will make you a better mom for your kids.

  • So there you go, I hope you liked these ideas.

  • I know that they work for me.

  • Hopefully they work for you.
