Sleep is a critical part of your child’s health and just as important as good nutrition and regular physical activity. In fact, experts say they should be getting at least 10-12 hours a night for optimum performance at school. However, when back-to-school season draws near, getting back to a normal sleep time routine can be a challenge. Pediatrician and Mom of three, Dr. Tanya Altmann shared some effective advice.
For starters make sure kids are getting a lot of activity during the day, and at night create a routine. Bathing, brushing, reading a bedtime story and nix all the electronics before bed. For sleepless nights, trying a melatonin can also help establish normal sleep patterns to provide a more restful relaxing sleep for your child.
