How Do I Get My Kids to Sleep In Later?



Getting kids out of bed can be a pain, but even more difficult is when they’re the ones waking you up. Hey, parents deserve to sleep in some days. ParentsAsk pinged Elizabeth Pantley, author of The No-Cry Sleep Solution for Toddlers and Preschoolers, for tips on how to get kids to stay asleep just a little longer. Here’s a quick summary of Elizabeth’s advice:

  • Dim the lights. Street lights or house lights can cause a light sleeper to wake up early.
  • Prepare for nature’s calls. Give your child less liquid before he/she goes to bed to prevent waking up early to use the bathroom.
  • Prevent morning hunger. Give your child a low-sugar, high-carb snack before bed.
  • Change a habit. Gradually adjust his/her night and nap schedule.
  • Fix a misaligned nap routine.

    You can teach a 2-year old to read a clock. I covered up the minutes digits so that my son would just focus on the hour. I taught him to look for the 7 in the morning, and not to get up before then. Worked great for us!

    With my son the main thing is making sure his nap is not too late, and just a night light so we do not have any distractions.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
