It’s always tough to get the kids back into their sleeping pattern. Late nights watching movies, waking up in later in the day, just like adults, once a sleeping pattern is broken, it becomes a lot harder to fix
There are some things you can do though, and we’re here to help.
Here’s four things you can do to help get them back into their school sleeping pattern and remember an old bed won’t help either so check out the full range of kids beds now available in our sale.
1. Start preparing two weeks earlier.
Most parents might think that starting a week earlier, or even a couple of nights before school is enough to get their kids back into their sleeping pattern. And you know what, it makes sense. But some experts are now saying that two weeks before school is the best time to start because it implements the pattern earlier, giving your children more time to adapt.
2. Let them play before bedtime.
Now, it may seem daft to let children play before they go to sleep, but letting them expel all their energy before they go to bed might not be a bad idea. Experts believe that letting them tire out before they go to sleep will only result them into drifting away quicker and quieter.
3. No sugary food before bedtime
We know you won’t be feeding your children sweets and chocolate before bed, but don’t fall victim to letting you children have a bowl of cereal as supper. A lot of cereals, especially the sugar frosted varieties contain enough sugar to keep your children bouncing off the walls for hours.
4. No phones in bed.
If your child has a phone, try and make them leave their phone downstairs at night. The constant stimulation is enough to keep your child awake for hours. Portable games consoles are the same, providing your child hours of entertainment that can take them hours beyond their bedtime.
So, as summer comes to an end, there’s no better time than now to start preparing your child for that dreaded day: back to school day!
