Jenni June Sleep Hygiene Tips for the Nap Time Routine.

By Blog, General Health, Kids Sleep Tips, Uncategorized

1. Provide a good meal right before nap time. Keep this time free from over stimulation. No TV or iPad. The blue light in screen can signal brain to halt melatonin production (That’s our sleepy hormones!). Instead, use calming and soothing music during meal and nap routine. Then turn off and use true white noise and leave on the entire duration of nap. 2. Anticipate “relaxed state” cues, NOT overtired cues! Begin nap routine after meal, 10-15 mins prior to laying your child down for nap time is all it takes. 3. Make it the same routine every time in the exact same order. This routine signals to the brain and body that sleep is about to come, which helps increase melatonin production, setting your child up for nap time success! 4. Don’t over- soothe! Or your child will catch a “second wind”, miss that perfect sleep window, and become…

Don't start sleep training if…

By Blog, Kids Sleep Tips, Parenting, Uncategorized

1. You know you will be traveling, having house guests, or other social or family functions within 3 weeks of begining, because consistency is key when learning new habits! It’s bootcamp baby! 2. Don’t begin sleep training when your child has a cold or is congested, coughing or not feeling well. We want to give them every opportunity for success! 3. Do not start sleep training in the midst of other big changes within the family, such as, moving, divorce, the loss or serious illness of a loved one or pet. Your child’s ability to cope with change is not developed enough yet to sort through more than one challenge at a time, and sleep is effected by these kinds of events in the family. Help them adjust emotionally, first. Then, we will get them well-rested again.

3 Sleep Tips to resolve your child’s extra early morning waking:

By Blog, Kids Sleep Tips, Uncategorized

If you didn’t prepare baby incrementally in advance for daylight savings time, then it’s likely they are waking an hour earlier than usual in the morning. Here’s what you can do to help them adjust. Adjust their entire feeding and sleep schedule gently forward, 15 minutes a day for 4 consecutive days. Allow your baby to be exposed to a little more light, real or artificial, longer each night before bed, and also a little more darkness each morning upon waking up, within these 4 days. This will help signal the brain to adjust melatonin production. Once you have completed the 4 day schedule adjustment, be patient and allow your child’s body to adjust. Rome wasn’t built in a day! Be consistent and stick to the schedule! It may take 1 to 3 weeks for circadian rhythm to adjust habitually. Younger babies take longer than toddlers.

Tips for the Toddler 2 to 1 nap transition:

By Blog, Kids Sleep Tips, Toddler Sleep Tips, Uncategorized

Look for readyness between ages 14 months and 18 months old. You will know when, over period of 4 weeks, the AM nap and PM nap, or both, start to fall apart, that it is time for transition! Expect your baby to be cranky and extra tired for 3 weeks as you make transition. Their little bodies take time to get used to this change. Drop morning nap and aim for 12:30 to 1PM for their one nap a day. Provide an earlier than usual bedtime while making this transition to prevent child from becoming overtired.
