Moving from one house to another is one of the most stressful events in a person's life, but if you throw a couple of kids into the equation, it can turn the aggravation meter up another few notches, to say the least.
Today, I'm talking to Christine Stevens, one of my esteemed Sleep Sense Consultants and a true veteran when it comes to moving with little ones.
She's got some amazing tips for keeping your little ones occupied and happy while you make the transition from your old house to the new one, and make the move as smooth as possible.
TV, computers, tablets and smartphones have proven to be a pretty invaluable resource for parents over the years. Bright lights, fun games, catchy music and colorful images can be a great way to distract your little one for a little while, and in many cases, these devices can be great educational tools as well.
But, as with anything that our kids love, there's a balance that needs to be struck between how much they want and how much is good for them.
On today's show, I'll give you my take on how much screen time is too much, and some tips on how to set limits that your child will understand and accept.
Is there such a thing a the "Four-month sleep regression?" Absolutely. But it seems like every time our little ones hit a bump in the road when it comes to sleeping through the night, we try to put a label on the problem.
That's not to say that regressions aren't a real thing, but identifying the actual cause for a few rough nights in baby's routine can help you decide what course of action to take (if any) and in today's episode, I'll help you do just that.
Summertime brings about a lot of new experiences for kids. For many, it can be their first time traveling, meeting relatives, visiting theme parks, and any number of exciting adventures.
But it also means that the schedule they follow during the school year tends to get tossed out the window, especially when it comes to bedtime.
So now that they're headed back to school, how can you get them back into the rhythm and make sure they're getting the sleep they need?
It's easier than you think, with the right guidance, and I'm here today to help get your little ones back into bed at a decent hour and sleeping through the night again so they can wake up refreshed and ready to learn!
