As the end of the summer looms, it is probably a good idea to get your bed and wake up times tightened up if they have been relaxed over the last few months. This is especially important if you have young children starting in preschool or returning to school. Sleep consultant Lucy Wolfe of Sleep Matters shares 5 tips for getting the sleep routine back on track.
I always encourage parents to have a flexible feeding and sleeping schedule that matches your child’s needs, but I believe over the summer months, where the evenings are long and lots of parents are holidaying, then it is natural for the children to stay up a bit later than normal, and if you are lucky to sleep longer in the mornings.
If this is you and because most terms begin within the next week or two, I have put together a list of suggestions that can help organise a schedule for a school orientated timetable.
