I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Zarbee’s Naturals. I received product samples and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
Sleep is such an important part of a child’s development. It ranges by age, but children between the ages of 1-3 need 12-14 hours of sleep in a 24 hour period and children between the ages of 3-12 need anywhere from 11-13 hours of sleep in a 24 hour period! Sleep is so important for children because it directly impacts both mental and physical development. Because of that, it seems like I have spent a lot of time getting my children on consistent bedtime routines!
Even before my twins were born, we made sure that we had a consistent bedtime routine for my son. A few things we make sure to do is start limiting electronics at least an hour before bedtime. Then, a warm bath to help them calm down – nice and relaxing! For the girls, they have a bottle, book and cuddle time before we put them in their cribs for the night. For our 6 year old, he has us read a book to him and then can read some more books himself – as long as he stays in bed.
When the twins were born, it really messed up Hayden’s sleep schedule. Since the girls were up every 2 hours through the night, it would sometimes wake him up and it was hard to get him to fall back to sleep. We struggled a bit getting him back into a good routine since those first few months were so crazy and I’m wishing that I knew about Zarbee’s Naturals Sleep and Children’s Sleep products earlier!
Zarbee’s Naturals Children’s Sleep is for children ages 3 years and up. It can help children that have the occasional problems with their bedtime routines, traveling and especially the recent time change! I love that it’s natural, safe and effective.
