It's common to say "I put the child to bed". "Put to bed" means to help or prepare someone to go to sleep, and would be commonly said of a child being directed to go to their bed, tucked in, etc.
There is a similar phrase "put to sleep" which can also mean to directly cause someone to sleep or render them unconscious; but it has a secondary euphemistic meaning "to kill", so it may not be appropriate in all circumstances.
