  • How to get your child to sleep in their own bed

    How to encourage your child to sleep in their own bed | Childrens Bed Shop


    For many parents, bedtime struggles are an all-too-familiar problem. From sleepwalking to night terrors, kids battles with a peaceful sleep can keep parents up all night, in turn wreaking havoc on sleeping patterns. One common issue that a lot of parents face is a little one that’s reluctant to sleep in their own bed, which is why we’ve put together this helpful guide. From choosing from our selection of themed beds, to making sure they’re as comfortable as possible, here’s some top tips to try and encourage your child to sleep in their own bed.

    Normalise solo-sleeping

    The more your child thinks of sleeping alone in their own bed, the higher the likelihood that they’ll start to normalise the concept. If you’re spending night after night letting your little one sleep in your bed, they’ll begin associating this as the norm, making it more difficult to snap out of the habit. Start bringing up the fact that kids and parents sleep in different beds, whether this is in conversation or within a bedtime story. You could even try making up your own bedtime story that highlights how important sleeping in your own bed is, bringing the concept to life in a fun and imaginative way that will stick with your child.

    Make their bedroom more appealing

    Your child’s bedroom should be a place they love, which is why making the space feel more inviting could have a big impact. If their bedroom could do with some updated decor, consider painting the walls and introducing some fresh new furnishings. Themed beds are great for this, available in a range of styles that can instantly add some fun to any space. For kids who love to ‘play house’, the House Cabin bed is a perfect choice, while other imaginative little ones will love hopping into the Julian Bowen London bus bunk bed. Emphasise the fact that their bed is so much more fun than your own, and how lucky they are to have such an exciting place to sleep all to themselves!

    Make sure they’re comfortable

    Of course, while a cool themed bed is sure to be a hit, you also need to make sure your child is as comfortable as possible. Along with a good bed, a high quality mattress is also really important to ensure your child is getting the best sleep possible. If they’re uncomfortable, they could be more likely to wake up during the night, and find their way to your bedroom in no time. You should also make sure their room is the right temperature, and their bedding isn’t too heavy or uncomfortable. If they struggle with the dark, getting a night light for their room is another good way to make them more comfortable being alone.

    Give them encouragement

    Last but not least, once your child has spent a full night in their own bed, be sure to shower them with plenty of encouragement — and cuddles! One idea could be to create a week by week chart that marks whether they stayed in their bed each night. If they make it to the end of the week with no problems, reward them with a small gift, a day out or their favourite treat.

  • A guide to choosing the right colour for your child's room

    When picking out colours to paint the home with, there’s more to it than just choosing the shades you like the look of. The colours you choose to paint with can actually have a big impact on your mood, and this can be particularly true of children’s bedrooms. So before rushing to paint their room, read our guide which tells you some of the best colours for your child, along with which bunk bed, single bed or mid sleeper bed to pair with each room’s decor!

    Choosing the best colour for your child's room | Childrens Bed Shop

    If you want to encourage a better sleep

    According to colour psychology, the colour blue is one of the best bedroom shades for kids who have trouble settling down at bedtime. This cool and soothing shade has the power to slow down heart rate and promote a sense of calm. For children who get agitated at bedtime or have anxiety towards sleeping alone, painting a wall or two in a soft blue shade could help them relax and get the rest they need.

    Which bed?

    Since blue is such a versatile colour, there are so many bed’s which will look great paired with this shade. One bed in particular, The Julian Bowen Pluto Children’s Mid Sleeper Bed, comes in a stunning grey shade which will fit the decor perfectly and add to the cool feel of the room.

    If you want to spark creativity

    If your child’s room also doubles up as a play area, reading den or arts and crafts space, you’ll need a colour that helps stimulate their creative side. This is where yellow comes in! This cheery and upbeat shade gives any space a breath of fresh air, and some studies even suggest that children who learn in a yellow space have better levels of concentration and improved memory. If you choose to paint your little one’s room in yellow, go for a shade that’s soft and not too vibrant to avoid overstimulation, and only paint a couple of walls in this colour.

    Which bed?

    To compliment the yellow tones in the room, a bed like the Julian Bowen Orion Bunk Bed works perfectly with it’s beautiful oak finish. This bed also has plenty of storage space and shelves for your child to keep all their favourite books and toys closeby, and spark their imagination even further!

    If you need a mixture of the two

    So what if you want to encourage imagination and creativity, but your child also struggles with sleeplessness? One thing you could do is pair blue and yellow together! Painting the room in both colours should even out the contrasting effects of each shade, keeping the benefits of each colour without any adverse effects.

    Green is another colour that could benefit both creativity and sleep. Green has the ability to soothe the body and mind while also promoting concentration, and may even help improve reading ability. Go for a soft, light shade of green such as mint, which looks beautiful as a feature wall in a minimal white room.

    Which bed?

    To keep up the natural, earthy feel of a green space or balance out the vibrancy of yellow and blue, beds like the Amani UK Mission Storage Bed In Waxed Pine will work perfectly. This bed also has the added benefit helping you keep the bedroom tidy with a built in space saving solution.

  • How much sleep does your child need?

    We all know how important sleep is for all of us, particularly young people. Most parents know that their child needs plenty of sleep, but how many of us are aware just how many hours this involves per day? Here at Children’s Bed Shop, we understand that giving kids a restful night’s sleep is a necessity, which is why we’ve put together this guide with information on how much sleep your child needs, and some tips on how to help this happen.

    How Much Sleep Does Your Child Need? | Childrens Bed Shop

    1 week to 12 months old


    For babies, sticking to a strict sleep schedule is a big priority as it’s so important for their growth and development. The younger the child is, the more sleep they generally need. For newborn babies of a week old, approximately 8 hours sleep is needed in the daytime, and another 8 and 30 minutes in the night - which is sometimes easier said than done if you have a crying baby on your hands!


    As babies get older, the time they need to spend sleeping gradually decreases, to 6 to 7 hours in the daytime and 8 to 9 hours in the night for 4 week old babies. By 3 months old, babies will start spending less time sleeping in the day, at 4 to 5 hours day time and 10 to 11 hours night time, which goes down to 3 hours and 11 hours by 6 months of age. At 9 and 12 months old, a 2 hour 30 minute nap is recommended in the day and 11 hours sleep at night. Our selection of nursery cots at Children’s Bed Shop provide the perfect setting for your baby to get some rest!


    2 to 3 years old


    As children reach toddler age, getting them to sleep can prove more difficult. When they’re not demanding to stay up just a little longer, 2 year old’s should be getting around 1 hour and 30 minutes sleep in the daytime, and 11 and a half hours per night. For 3 year old toddlers, you should aim to get them to nap for about 45 minutes in the day and sleep for 11 and a half to 12 hours at night. If you’re struggling to get toddlers the right amount of rest, there are things you can do, such as creating a relaxing sleep environment and sticking to a sleep schedule.


    4 to 8 years old


    Once your child has reached the age of 4, they no longer need extra time to sleep during the day. 11 hours and 30 minutes is the recommended amount per night, which gradually goes down to 10 hours and 45 minutes by age 6. At age 7 and 8, around 10 and a half hours is the amount needed, which is why it’s so important to make sure to enforce bedtime schedules that allow for this amount of hours, while still fitting in with getting up early for school.


    9 to 16 years old


    By age 9, around 10 hours a night is recommended, gradually lowering to 9 hours by age 16. Limiting electronic use before bed, encouraging them to go to bed at a certain time and trying to keep their sleep schedules from getting affected by extra long weekend lie-ins are a few ways you could try to ensure your child or teen gets enough rest.
