Back-to-school = sleep routines

#Backtoschool means establishing a good sleep routine. And yikes, I find this very challenging after a summer of later nights and mornings. The kids are either really wired or extra tired during September and getting out of bed in the morning can be a challenge.

Here’s a useful bedtime chart via Good Housekeeping about recommended sleeping times for different ages.

A few tips:
#1 Pre-bed routine: Start 30-45 minutes in advance of the time your child needs to be in bed.

#2: Screens: Since computers and TV suppress melatonin, no use at least one hour before bed. Reading increases melatonin so a bedtime story or reading alone is ideal.

#3: On the weekends: Bedtime and wake-up is best when kept within 1 hour of the weekday routine so your child doesn’t shift her sleep phase.

Good luck with the bedtime battles! What works best for you to establish a good sleeping routine with your child?#backtoschool #bedtime #glassofwater #onemorestory #but #im #NOT #tired #zzzzzzzzzz
