At our house, the trick for getting a good sleep is simple: cosleeping! Disturbances caused by my little guy waking up are much more brief. I feed him and then we go right back to bed. Obviously, we follow the guidelines for bed-sharing set out by Unicef. We can brag (and we hope it lasts) that we haven’t yet had a sleepless night.

To have an easier time sleeping, I advise you to take some time for yourself during the day; to take a walk or do some activity that you like, whether it’s something sporty or creative doesn’t matter. The important thing is that it makes you happy! As moms, we tend to put ourselves off to the side and take on too much. We’re running around all day to get everything done.
Spoil yourself! Make an appointment for a massage, a facial, or a manicure. Go for brunch with your friends, shop, switch up your routine a bit. We need to release some of the pressure at some point. We sleep better when we’re more zen. Fatigue that has accumulated takes a toll on our morale.
9- Dominique at Rabais et Coupons
So, I think I’m going to make a few parents jealous here when it comes to sleep. The reason? I’m a mother of teenagers, and we know that teenagers like to sleep in. But they don’t sleep in too late- 8, 9, 10am at the most, which is more than enough on the weekends.
And I’m glad to see that my charming teens have kept the same routine that my spouse and I taught them since they were young: bath before bed (or shower) and some reading to wind down.
How do you get a good rest and sleep better as a parent?
