Parenting Strategies: Healthy Sleep Habits


Thank you to Nicole Double, a certified pediatric sleep consultant with Little Loves Consulting, opens a new window, for sharing her time with us at our March 2022 Parenting Strategies program!

Here's just a portion of the information Nicole shared with us: 

  • Wake windows, or the amount of time your child is awake between periods of sleep, are different depending on your child's age.
  • White noise machines are great, but avoid night light projectors. They can keep your child awake.
  • Bedtime routines can take 20-40 minutes or more depending on the child. Allow more time for especially active children.
