How many hours of sleep your baby needs will depend on how many hours your baby sleeps because every baby’s sleep pattern is different. If you notice that the child is less sleepy in the afternoon and is interested in playing during the afternoon, keep some toys around him to encourage his behavior. But make sure the toys are not too big as he can learn to stack them.

Two-year-olds usually try to bend the daily routine. Because of this he has to struggle to get him to sleep.  The child then wants to spend most of the day playing because it always excites him. At this time you need to create some routine:

  1. Establishing mindful habits and routines is the best way to encourage good sleep habits.
  2. The amount of sleep required is not the same for all children, but two-year-olds generally need 11 to 12 hours of sleep a night and at least one to two hours of sleep should be taken during the day.
  3. Babies are very difficult to put to sleep at this age so you need to be a bit strict about the bedtime rules and routines. This is the best way to teach your child good sleep habits and make things easier for you.
  4. Start to stop watching TV after dinner at night. It’s easy to change everyone’s time by reducing the activity rate of you and the child. Reading books, singing songs, telling stories are better activities for children to sleep.

Try to keep the bedtime routine short and pleasant. Train someone to brush their teeth in the morning, take a shower, etc. But your baby will gradually get used to the daily routine and sleep well. Never force the child on anything and always try to provide a good environment in front of the child.
