Getting Enough zzz's

Jan 09, 2017

The excitement of the holidays can pose a challenge to your child’s sleep schedule. Traveling, spending time with family and participating in late night gatherings likely means that there have been some missed naps and stretched bedtimes. While it is fun to have more flexibility with naps and bedtimes during the holidays, you may have started to see the effects that less sleep has had on your children. As you start the New Year, this is a great time to bring back regular sleep routines and make sure that your child is getting the sleep that they need.  After all, well-rested children tend to be happier children!
