Helping moms sleep better instead of being stuck in the cycle of no sleep. I can relate which is why today is all about sleep and motherhood.
Helping moms sleep better is something that I think we all can dream about. We want to sleep better and deeper but then sometimes it can feel like you are fighting a never ending battle. It starts when you are dealing with nighttime feedings, slowly turns into night time wakings with a scared kid, and then sometimes is just a combination of your brain thinking all of the things.
While I know we may never sleep like we used to, I do think it is possible for moms to sleep better. Today I am sharing 7 tips to help moms sleep better.

7 Tips to Help Moms Sleep Better
Keep your bed phone free.
In the past, I would scroll social media in bed before I fell asleep. However, I soon realized this was not helping me get good sleep. Instead it would cause me to get frustrated over something someone posted or keep me awake.
Instead, I decided to read before bed. If I read a non fiction book, it usually helps me relax (fiction tends to keep me wide awake). If you use your phone as an alarm, plug it in next to the bed and stay off of it as you fall asleep.
Cozy up with comfortable bedding.
A comfortable bed is inviting and makes you want to relax. Make your bed with quality sheets and a comforter you love. We recently started using sheets from California Design Den and love them. They are 100% cotton and always feel crisp and clean. We love having white sheets as I believe they create a calming feel for the whole room. However, there are other colors available. Shop on Amazon for the sheets!
Keep a notepad by your bed.
Do you ever lay down and then immediately think of all the things? This is why having a notepad by your bed can be beneficial. Having a notepad allows me to quickly write down the idea and then lay back down. Then in the morning I can look over my random notes and take action then.
Have a regular bedtime.
Lately, this has been a struggle for me which has then resulted in me not wanting to wake up in the morning. Therefore, I am focusing on getting back into the habit of getting into bed on time. I suggest deciding what time you plan to wake each day and then determine what time you need to go to bed in order to allow for you to get adequate sleep.
Create a peaceful environment.
Is your bedroom your catchall? It is for us. I tend to put all of the things there. Big struggle! One goal I have had is to turn our bedroom into a peaceful place. I am working on putting some beautiful decor in it and removing the clutter. This means putting things back where they belong rather than just letting them collect dust in the corner.
Invest in a good pillow.
A good pillow is vital to helping moms sleep better at night. I was recently given the GhostPillow to try out and LOVE it. You literally feel like you are sleeping on the softest pillow ever. I love how it forms to my head and neck all while giving good support.
One of the most amazing things about this pillow is that it stays cool. If you want to try GhostPiillow, you can and you get free shipping and 101 Night Sleep Trial along with a 5 year warranty.
Write down what you are thankful for.
This is a new rhythm I have been trying. Since I have the notebook by my bed, I decided to also use it to write down five things I am grateful for every day. I have wanted to do this ever since reading Ann Voskamp’s book so I am finally doing it!
Sleep is important and it is vital that as a mom you are getting quality sleep. Remember, your self-care is key to thriving as a mom. What tip do you have to help moms sleep better?
