The Easiest Way To Get Babies and Toddlers To Sleep Later

Prayer For Babies To Sleep

If your baby can’t seem to sleep or wakes up super early… this is for you.

If there is one Nugget of Truth I could give to first time moms when they are pregnant… it would be this.

You can (more or less) decide what time your baby will wake up for years to come. 

No, I’m not kidding.

No, I’m not full of it.

Yes, I am serious.

Yes, I’ve done it 4 times.

It’s not because I’m a mythical supermom  or because I have it all together. It’s because I was told this one piece of advice that is just Golden and it works. It works wonders. It has worked with 4 babies that have 4 separate personalities and I want to make your life a little easier today and share it with you.

Here it is…

You’re dying, right?

JUST TELL ME, you are saying.

Okay fine, I’m 38 weeks and 6 days pregnant and can’t handle this suspense making.

The way you get your baby to wake up at a consistent time each morning is to feed them at that exact time every morning. 

I’m going to dig into how this works with babies of various ages below, but suffice it to say… it’s that simple. It is so simple one might even call it a Hack.

Now, word of caution, if you have a 13 month old this will require a lot of consistency since their metabolism is ly set to a much earlier time.

I start this with my newborns and that makes it easier. But still, there is hope!

Getting Babies and Toddlers to Sleep In: The Easy Way

Now, this will change as toddlers grow up, drop naps, and change eating habits. And, of course, we know babies aren’t robots who confirm to our every whim. That said, done consistently, this will help your children sleep later and it will help them be content if they wake early.

Read: Tips For Swaddling Baby At Night

Feed your baby or toddler every morning at the same time

It’s that simple. Choose a reasonable time each morning and feed your baby or give your toddler breakfast at this time. The End. Now, you may have to gradually move breakfast back until your desired time since they are not used to this new time, but it’s worth the effort.

If your baby is screaming the house down, of course, I’m not saying starve the baby. However I’ve found babies wake early often and are content to play or be played with. Do this for 15 minute increments or until you’re able to move breakfast back without having a seriously fussy toddler on hand.

Read: Feeding Baby Until One Year of Age

The reason this works? Their metabolism gets used to eating at that time and, at that time, they will wake up. It’s why you get hungry at noon if that’s your lunch break.

It’s why your stomach growls for a snack when you’re used to eating crackers at 3:30 pm. Same for adults, same for kids.

If you are nursing throughout the night, time your early morning feeding accordingly

So, for babies who are still nursing at night, this can seem a bit tricky, but it doesn’t have to be. If your baby normally feeds at 5:00 am and is tempted to stay awake… wake yourself up at 4:30 and feed them.

Follow these tips with swaddling and basic night feeding good practices and then try to wait until your desired wake time to feed them again. This may be 6:30 am or even 7.

If they generally feed every 2 or 3 hours at night and you want them to wake around 6:30 then feed them sometime between 3:30 and 4:30, even if they don’t wake. You wake them up and feed them then put them immediately back to sleep.

If they wake early, try to delay breakfast until your desired time

With a toddler, if they wake very early do not give them breakfast yet. You can let them play quietly with books or soft toys in their bed or room and simply start having breakfast at the time you desire each morning.

With my babies, they’d often wake up a tad bit early depending on teething, the sun, and time changes. However, unless they were going through a growth spurt and were truly starving at that early time (in which case I fed them) they were usually content to remain in the crib for a time playing, talking, or cooing.

This is a good sign! It means with consistency they can learn to sleep later.

28 Things To Try If Your Baby Can’t Sleep

Get my free report chock full of quick and dirty tips to help your baby sleep. Give your name and email and I’ll send it straight to your inbox.

 Allow play in the crib or bed until time to eat

This may seem a stretch to you, but allowing my babies to play happily in their cribs until our normal wake time has been a lifesaver. If you’re a tired mom, you need to grab hold of this.

Its okay for your baby to play in their crib for 20 minute before you feed them. Our normal wake time is 7:30 am. Does this mean every child wakes at 7:30 am each day? No.

Some kids wake around 6:45 and play on their bed until I come. Sometimes they all sleep until 8:00 a.m. Regardless, unless there’s a growth spurt or we’re leaving the house early, no one eats until 7:30 a.m.

And, before you send me hate mail, they are okay with this. In fact, we often push breakfast back until 8:00 because everyone is milling about in their rooms or playing.

Give big bedtime snacks if necessary

This is the name of the game. As soon as your baby is eating solids, be sure to give them a hearty bedtime snack before (or after) nursing at bedtime.

This will often help them sleep another hour later each morning. I did this regularly with my first three kids, but when I had my 4th I was so busy with the Bedtime Routine that the snack slipped my mind.

See Wind-Down Routines that Really Work

When he didn’t get a snack, he’d wake up as much as one hour early! So if you know your kids are waking up starved, give them a hearty and filling bedtime snack that can help carry them over later in the morning.

Be consistent (but not legalistic)

This is pretty much applicable in all of parenting. We want to be consistent. Communicate our values. Keep our boundaries firm so the kids feel secure. Not be willy nilly changing our minds, changing the rules, and surprising our kids with “Don’t Do That!” when yesterday we allowed it.

And yet, sometimes we have to go with the flow. Growth spurts mean feeding when they are hungry. Time changes mean sleep disruptions. Being in survival mode means doing what it takes to survive. That is okay, that is fine. That is right. Keep consistent with your goals, but be willing to read your children and meet their needs in a flexible way.

As they say…

“Blessed are the flexible. They don’t break when bent.”

I’ve created a free email series just for you! There are truly only a few reasons why babies and toddlers have struggles sleeping… really, I mean it. I am going to teach you the main 3 reasons and how to start making small changes to help your baby go from:

  • fighting sleep to embracing it
  • night wakings to sleeping through
  • needing you to jump through hoops to going to sleep on their own

A Beautiful Prayer to End the Day

Heavenly Father, my day is drawing to an end, and I'm ready to turn in. But before I do, I have to thank you for your faithfulness today. It's always a good day, even when things may not go the way I plan, or when the world seems in chaos, because you are in control.

For all the times when I was aware of your help today, all the times when your unseen presence seemed so near, thank you, God. But for all the ways you worked behind the scenes, unknown to me, moments when heaven-sent angels moved on my behalf in ways I'll never know, thank you for those also, Lord.

Forgive me for any foolish actions on my part today or things I did without first asking your blessing or wisdom. Those are moments I'd rather forget, but I'm so grateful for your forgiveness when I ask.

I never want to go to bed without clearing the air between us, Lord. Our friendship means too much, and your holiness deserves that. Thank you for loving me just as I am.

Your love compels me to give you my all and fills my heart with praise for the relationship we share because of Jesus.

As I close my eyes tonight, I'm praying for loved ones around me, for friends and those who need to know you, Lord. I'm praying that your love, the billions of stars in the night sky outside, will touch them and help them see who you really are. I pray for our world and those in it. I pray for their needs as well as my own.

Grant me a good night's sleep tonight, God, so that I can awake refreshed and ready to begin another day loving you. Thank you again for blessings so undeserved and too numerous to count.

I love being your child, and I long for the word «faithful» to describe my service to you, each day of every year. When I awake in the morning, may it be with a joyful smile, not a grumpy spirit.

May your protection and your presence bathe this place with peace and safety against the enemy. Good night, Lord. In Jesus's name, Amen. ~ Rebecca Barlow Jordan

Father, We Thank Thee

Father, we thank thee for the night, And for the pleasant morning light; For rest and food and loving care, And all that makes the day so fair. Help us to do the things we should, To be to others kind and good; In all we do, in work or play, To grow more loving every day.

— Rebecca Weston — 1890

Bedtime Prayer (song by Twila Paris)

Now I lay me down to sleep I pray dear Lord that you will keep Your eyes upon this sleeping world

Every little boy and girl

Bless the children far away The ones who don't know how to pray Those who are not feeling well

The little one the slipped and fell

Bless the puppy down the street The neighbors I have yet to meet

Bless my mom and dad especially

Just one more thing I'd to say Before I close another day I'd to thank you Lord for all the ways

That You bless me

Bless the child whose home is torn The babies who are not yet born Bless the ones who take your word

To all the hearts that have not heard

Bless all your children everywhere I hope they know how much you care Maybe someday I can go

And tell them that You love them so

Bless Grandma and my Grandpa too And all my friend and all they do

Bless every twig upon my family tree

Just one more thing I'll say to you I'm so amazed by all you do I'll thank you once again because it's true

That you bless me

The Examen (Evening Reflection)

Written by St. Ignatius Loyola, the Examen is a daily process for prayerfully reflecting on your day. 

1. Remember God’s presence.
Even after a trying day, God will quiet your soul as you remember His presence and intentionally seek to enter into it. Remember He’s with you. Invite Him to make Himself present to you. 

2. Respond to Him with thanks.
Giving thanks gives God glory and helps us look on the bright side of a bad day. What small blessings can you thank God for?

3. Reflect on how God showed Himself to you.
God reveals himself through scripture, but we also see glimpses of him in nature, events, and people.

Sometimes He shows up loudly through miraculous, divine intervention. Other times He shows Himself quietly through the beauty of a flower or an earnest conversation.

As you look back over your day, can you identify moments where you sensed God’s revelation or intervention? 

4. Repent of your failings.
I don’t recognizing my own sin, but repentance is key to continual renewal in our relationship with God.As you reflect on your day, remember specific points where you failed. Bring your shortcomings before God and ask Him to forgive you.  

5. Resolve to grow. 
God is in the business of changing us, so don’t let your failings discourage or define you. His mercies are always new. Accept His forgiveness. Ask Him for grace to change. Is there anything you need to make right or anyone you need to apologize to? What can you do differently tomorrow?

Prayer for the child to sleep better. Prayer for the night before going to sleep

Prayer For Babies To Sleep

After the birth of a child, each mother is very strongfor him is going through, and her main desire is that the child has a sound sleep, was healthy and happy. Even if the baby is fast asleep, I want his dreams to be pleasant and cause only positive emotions. In the appeal of good dreams for the child, you can use various prayers.

Types of prayers for a good sleep in a child

What prayers will help the newbornthe baby slept well? It is worth noting that to date there are ten appeals to the Almighty, which are really considered to be the most effective for a quiet night for a baby. Under a good dream, it means that he will be strong, and dreams are colorful and kind.

Such prayers include:

  1. Prayer addressed to the seven holy Ephesian boys.
  2. Parents pray for the blessing of their children.
  3. A prayer addressed directly to the Angel of the Child's Guardian.
  4. Prayer for the upbringing of children.
  5. Mother's prayer aimed at blessing her child.
  6. Prayer for children.
  7. A prayer-petition for the healing of a child's illness.
  8. Classical Prayer «Our Father».
  9. Mother's prayer about her children.
  10. Prayer addressed to the Matron.

As a rule, young children are very susceptible tovarious noise, so even a dog bark in the yard can wake up the crumbs. To strengthen the sleep of children, you can read some of these prayers. In addition to the above, there is one prayer aimed directly at ensuring that the child sleeps better.

Prayer for the child to sleep better

There are many reasons whya small child can not fall asleep — noise, colic, teeth and other are being cut. Accordingly, if the child does not sleep, then the parents do not sleep, because it is simply impossible not to pay attention to the suffering of their own crumbs.

Usually, if a baby has insomnia, he is immediately taken to the doctor, but there are situations when the doctor says that the child is absolutely healthy, just his sleep is hampered by some external factor.

In this situation, the only salvation from insomnia for the child is prayer.

Prayer for the child to sleep better, reads as follows:

  • «Jesus, Son of God, bless, sanctify, keep my child by the power of your life-giving Cross.»

After pronouncing these words, you need to cross the child. It is worth noting that prayer becomes more effective if the child is already baptized.

Prayer for a good child's sleep Angel to the Guardian of a child

Some people believe that every personsince the birth there is an Angel Guardian.

Therefore, if there are any problems with the child — illness, insomnia, it is best to seek help from the Guardian Angel.

Some people associate this with the fact that God is one at all and simply unable to help everyone, but the Guardian Angel is responsible for only one person, so it is more ly that he will help.

Prayer to the Angel The guardian of the child, in order to sleep well, reads as follows:

  • «Divine Angel, Guardian of my child (the name of the baby is indicated), hide it with your shield from the demon arrows, from the sugary seducer, save his heart clean and bright. Amen».

The ideal option is if the child independently reads a prayer to the Guardian Angel.

Prayer for the child to sleep better, his Guardian angel from his own mouth should sound this:

  • «My protector, my Guardian Angel. Do not leave me in difficult moments, save me from evil and envious people. Hide me from hating people. Save me from the evil eye and spoilage. Have mercy on me. Amen».

According to church officials, a prayer that sounds from the mouth of a child will have more power than it is from the mouth of the mother of the baby to the Angel of the Guardian.

Prayer for the child to sleep well at night, Matrona

According to the opinion of a large number of priests,if you have any problems with the health of the child (including the appearance of insomnia), you should immediately pray to St. Matrona.

It is she who is considered to be a helper for a large number of questions. To enhance the effect of prayer, it is recommended to buy at least a small icon with the face of this Saint.

And to protect your child from a bad eye, it is recommended to sew a piece of incense in his clothes, which will need to be changed periodically.

If the mother begins to observe the child's problems with sleep, then you need to turn to the Holy Matrona with the following words:

  • «Holy Matrona! I ask you, I conjure with all the maternal love, ask the Lord to give health to his slave (the name of the child is indicated).

Required for assistance in improvingchildren's dreams you need to ask for forgiveness for all your sins.

Prayer for sleeping a child can sound in your own words, most importantly, with faith and with all your heart. It is not necessary to be pretentious words, it is enough to state the request, repent of your own sins and thank the Lord that he listened to you.

Hit PLAY on the video to see the top sleep tips first!

1. Consistency is Key
“If my boys go to bed at the same time every night they sleep better.” Malia of Playdough to Plato

2. Use a Holistic Approach
“A healthy diet, a good amount of daytime sleep, a consistent daytime and bedtime routine, lots of love and cuddles, and positive sleep associations…” Katherine of Creative Playhouse

3. Get in a Routine
“I loved the book Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child by Marc Weissbluth. It was a great resource with my son, but not a fix it book. Having a consistent sleep/nap routine has been great for us. My preschooler still isn’t a great sleeper, but isn’t as terrible as he used to be.” Kristina of Toddler Approved

4. Make Sure Expectations are Age-Appropriate
“Let them get older…(OK, that’s not too helpful, lol)” Alissa of Bounceback Parenting

5. Have a Pre-Bed Ritual
“A proper wind-down routine (bath, story, singing, prayer) helps us.” Anna of The Imagination Tree

6. Try an Earlier Bedtime
“If bedtime is a challenge, and your child resists and stays awake in their room until all hours, try putting them to bed an hour or so earlier than you normally would.

Chances are, they’ve caught a second wind, and are re-energized, but if you put them to bed earlier when they’re actually tired and ready for it, you may be surprised at how smoothly bedtime goes” Jackie of Happy Hooligans

7. Encourage More Sleep During the Day
“I find that if my son gets plenty of sleep during the day he sleeps well at night.” Adele of Playful Learners

8. Or Cut Back on Naps
“My two oldest didn’t sleep through the night until I cut out their naps during the day.

The pediatrician shook her head at me when I told her at Priscilla’s 3-year visit she didn’t take naps.

But Priscilla goes to bed at 7 pm without any fits, has no trouble with sleep through the night, and gets up at 7 am happy. I must be doing something right!” Krissy of B-Inspired Mama

9. Try a Reward Chart
“I recently introduced the reward chart (which you can see here) to my 2.5-year-old who was asking for water 2 to 4 times per night.

She has water by her bed but wanted us to give it to her. I told her we are always there for her if she is scared or needs us, but water she needs to get herself.

She now finally sleeps through! Makes such a difference to us all!” Maggie of Red Ted Art

10. Watch for Signs of Tiredness
“Good sleep habits start young. Don’t leave babies to cry, but instead set the stage for good sleep. Watch carefully for sleep cues and wind a tired baby down immediately.” Allison of Learn Play Imagine

11. Use “Nighttime Indicators”
“It is important to keep a routine and special ‘nighttime’ indicators. Bath, drink, teeth, prayers, bed. If we go off sometimes he has a hard time falling asleep. The indicators for him are a giraffe that makes a bubbling noise, teddy, and we always darken the house right before he goes to bed.” Gina of Connecting Family & Seoul

12. Make Sure Their Tummy’s Full
“My kids’ bedtime routine has always included a healthy snack and cup of milk. At least if they do have trouble getting to sleep or don’t sleep through the night, I know it won’t be because they are hungry.” Krissy of B-Inspired Mama

13. Try White Noise
“Bedtime routines and white noise have been our saving grace and by 5 months he was finally sleeping through the night. There are free apps out there for white noise. We just bought an inexpensive white noise machine for his room.” Jennifer of Plain Vanilla Mom

14. Use a Fun Night Light
“JDaniel doesn’t to go to sleep. We got him a night light that shines the solar system up on the ceiling. He s looking up at the planets from his bed now.” Deirdre of JDaniel4’s Mom

15. Try (Safe) Co-Sleeping
“There is no one strategy that works for every child. I was anti-co-sleeping until I had my daughter. She has a high need for physical touch at night, and it was the only way to get her and keep her asleep. Though, if you are co-sleeping make sure you use safe practices.” Rebekah of Finding the Golden Gleam

16. Turn off Tech
“No screen time post-bath. Dinner, bath, bed. Routine is key.” Marnie of Carrots are Orange

17.

Light a Bedtime Candle
“When Master D is washed and our teeth are brushed I say ‘let’s go light your bedtime candle’ and so far (after a few months) he excitedly goes to bed! And while I light his candle he gets into his pj’s.

Before blowing out his candle I ask if he would to tell me one thing. Sometimes he tells me he loves me or about his day or toys.  Then he blows his candle out and settles down for the night.” Kelly of Happy Whimsical Hearts

18. Try Quiet Play or Reading in Bed
“My kids have an early bedtime for their age. But they know they can quietly read books in bed (using a small camping lantern) until they’re tired.

I’m happy they are getting some reading in, and they always get tired and fall asleep earlier than they expect. They even know that if they can’t sleep through the night, they can try reading quietly until they’re tired again.

” Krissy of B-Inspired Mama

19. Dream Feed
“Dream feed. Feed your baby just before you go to bed. Do your best not to stimulate or wake him, just nurse. Once I started doing that around 7 months my little guys consistently let me sleep through.” Allison of Learn Play Imagine

20. Invest in a Video Monitor
“We use a video monitor. This means when he cries or makes a noise in the night we can look at the screen and see if he is okay.

I think this makes us less anxious and we pause for longer before going in to [check on] him.  This gives him a longer chance to self-settle without us barging in on him and properly waking him up.

” ‘Goblin’s Mama’ of Taming the Goblin

21. Think Outside the Crib
“My biggest advice is to not make them afraid of their cribs. We started with a sleeping mat on the floor. My son would roll around on the mat with me right there beside him until he fell asleep. Once he got comfortable with the sleeping mat, I moved him to the crib.

I stayed in the room, folding laundry or reading, occasionally rubbing his back or patting him. Eventually, he would roll around until he went to sleep. Once he learned to go to sleep on his own, when he woke up in the night, he could put himself back to sleep, so I didn’t need to get up.

If he couldn’t put himself back to sleep, I knew there was a problem.” Kristin of Sense of Wonder

22. Avoid the “Bad Words”
“I tell my son he can ‘read’ to himself in bed. That way, I’m not saying he has to ‘go to sleep.’ I let him ‘read’ with the light on for a while, then turn it off, and he usually falls asleep pretty soon after that. I also use this technique some days at nap time, since the word ‘nap’ can lead to resistance.” Jennifer of The Good Long Road

23. Keep Lights Low & Voices Calm
“When one of my kids can’t sleep through the night and wakes up, I try to remain calm, keep my voice quiet, and keep lights off or low. I don’t want to have them become stimulated and even more awake, which would just make my job of getting them back to bed more difficult.” Krissy of B-Inspired Mama

24. Don’t Watch the Clock
“Don’t look at the clock when they wake up or count how often they wake up. It doesn’t change how much they wake up, and you just feel more stressed.” MaryAnne of Mama Smiles

25.

Know that Every Child Is Different
“From a twin mummy perspective, I would say recognizing they are individuals and as such probably have different sleep needs and patterns! Once I figured that out we utilized the space we had and gave them separate sleeping areas (forget about the nicely designed twin room!!). This way I wasn’t running in as soon as one made a sound in case they woke the other.” Jodie of Mummy Musings and Mayhem

26. Ride Out the Stage
“Everything is a stage. The baby that wakes up all night may turn into a wonderful sleeper once older (mine did).” Bethany of No Twiddle Twaddle

27. Don’t Blame Yourself
“I had a sleep expert out to the house and she went over everything we were doing and told me my kids just weren’t sleepers…” MaryAnne of Mama Smiles
