#4. Avoid lying down with your child.

The last thing that you want is to get your child used to sleeping next to you, so do your best to avoid lying down with your child. If you do decide to lie down with your child to read to them or give them nightly cuddles, make sure you leave before they fall asleep.

#5. Make sure that your child uses the restroom before they go to bed.

In many cases, your child’s bladder is actually what wakes them up at night, and once they are up, they may need some company in order to go back to sleep. Minimize the amount of liquid that your child drinks before bedtime and always make sure that they use the restroom.
