Pediatric insomnia usually goes unnoticed. Children wake up, lie in bed then return to sleep. You know your child could be having sleep issues if they fall asleep during the day, have poor attention, social or development disorders.
Some sleep issues children suffer from are restless sleep, sleep walking, sleeping with eyes open, dream disturbed sleep, and bed wetting.
Sleep tips for pediatric insomnia:
Don’t feed your child late dinners.
Prepare well cooked foods as if you’re feeding an 80 year old!
When eating out stay away from the Kids Menu.
Put your child to bed at the same time every night – nine hours of sleep are optimal.
Keep electronics out of the bedroom.
