- A good routine will help him sleep! Create a bedtime routine for your child: give him a bath, read him a story and tuck him into bed at the same time every day!
- You can help him relax, maybe with some soft music or a gentle massage.
- For severe cases, you can check with your child’s doctor for any supplements that are safe to give to your child.
