Help Develop Bedtime RoutinesDisney store and shopDisney have launched a new “Sleep Shop” assortment of children’s sleep items to help with bedtime routines.I personally adore the themed nighttime routine rewards charts and light-up tumblers. My kids are always asking for water before bedtime and these cups are perfectly themed with a sleepy-time glow.
Here are Lauren’s top tips for common sleep challenges:Early Wake-Up This is common! If your child is waking up every morning before 6 am, it’s time to invest in blackout shades and a light or clock that illuminates when it’s time to get out of bed in the morning.Won’t Go to Sleep If your child suddenly refuses to fall asleep on their own or is waking up in the middle of the night, consider introducing a “friend” which is only offered a sleepy time. This can be a blanket or favorite stuffed animal, like the new Cuddleez! This oversized plush can even double as a pillow for toddlers when traveling.Be Consistent Consistency is key. Decide on a consistent, yet flexible schedule that works for your life and stick to it as best possible.Scared at Night If your child tells you they are scared at night, introduce a “nighttime friend” that is only offered at bedtime, and encourage your child to hold, squeeze or sing to their friend should they wake worried at night.
