For all the parents of babies, you’re well aware of the sleep struggle. Getting your little one to fall asleep and stay asleep is a challenging feat. Couple this with putting them in a new environment and the challenge only becomes greater. So, if a hotel stay is in your near future, use these tips to help your child sleep well!
Keep Your Baby in Their Normal Rhythm
Bring a few of your little one’s favourite toys to add familiarity to the new space. It’s also ideal to keep their sleeping routine as consistent as possible to back at home. For instance, if they usually go to sleep to a lullaby and bedtime story, make sure to continue these routines at the hotel as well.
Be Careful with Room Selection
If your room is close to an elevator, stairwell or other high-traffic areas, this just means more potential noise to keep your baby awake. Opt for a room at the end of a hallway. Not only does this help to keep you away from high-traffic areas, but you’ll only be sharing a wall with one other room. This means less potential noise in your room and should your little one have a tantrum, fewer people you’re disturbing.
Create a Baby Cave
If your baby is used to sleeping in a crib in their own room at home, a baby cave is an ideal option at a hotel. Minimizing the changes made to their sleeping conditions and creating a quiet, dark environment that blocks out any sunshine, will help them sleep well.
