Little Routines, Gillian Stewart

January Blues
Gillian Stewart, Wednesday, January 10, 2018

January is known to be a miserable month.

 The weather is fairly depressing,  coughs and colds are still lurking, Christmas is over AND the children won’t go to bed! It’s payback from the excitement of Christmas and lack of routine.
I read an article today highlighting the problems that parents are facing with their children not sleeping.
Routine is vital if you want your baby or child to go to bed and sleep well. Children don’t need the treat of staying up late. It isn’t a treat. You will find that your child will still wake at the same time in the morning, if not a little earlier and just be grumpy!
Set a consistent bedtime and help your child get the sleep they need to wake in the morning refreshed and ready to face all the challenges and excitement each new day brings.
